OUTSTANDING VISUAL CONTENT
ASSOCIATED BRITISH PORTS
Working closely with the marketing and communications team at ABP in London and Southampton to create editorial features for national and regional press, content for the company's website and live news events for ABP's social media channels as well producing photography for internal and external communications.
THE JUBILEE SAILING TRUST
The JST takes both disabled and able-bodied men and women to sea, to not only teach them how to crew a Tall Ship but to promote equality, sharing and to celebrate our individual differences through working together to achieve greater things.
I was commissioned to create imagery that would tell the story of this unique charity's record-breaking around the world voyage; the first circumnavigation of the globe by a mixed ability crew.
Shot in New Zealand, Norway and India.
THE SAILORS SOCIETY
Founded more than 200 years ago in 1818, The Sailors Society is a charity dedicated to caring for merchant seafarers - the 1.6 million men and women who keep the world’s economy moving. Working closely with the charities marketing team I was commissioned to shoot a series of images that told of the story of the charities work
Redefining outerwear in a saturated market should not be underestimated
When Maunder XV launched their Deepcover Jacket they wanted to extoll the virtues of their entirely British made garment. Designed as an outdoor jacket for any occasion from hiking to commuting, it was important to show the jacket in all of its environments. Maunder was also keen to have a wide-ranging and diverse collection of images shot that would create interest over several market sectors.
The jacket was to be launched via a Kickstarter campaign so it was essential to have eye-catching imagery that showed of the quality and uniqueness of the garment. The images were also used for the company's website and social media channels. The campaign was a huge success reaching its £17,000 target in a few short weeks. I shot a diverse series of images on location and also in the studio that really showcased this unique British made product.
HOPE FOR FOOD
Documenting the lives of the homeless
This documentary series was commissioned by Hope For Food to tell the stories of those living on the streets of Bournemouth, UK.
The charity wanted to create media coverage to highlight its incredible work and gain more support and increase donations.
I shot this portrait series of some of the homeless people who use the charities soup kitchen and support services. One of these portraits was selected by the British Journal of Photography, from 13,000 entries for their prestigious "Portrait Of Britain" book and exhibition; gaining the charity worldwide publicity which in turn generated huge press and media attention.
Hope for Food’s mission is to assist men, women and children in Bournemouth and the surrounding areas, who are either homeless or living in poverty by providing fresh food at their soup kitchens, hampers of food, good quality clothing, bedding and household goods, where needed. They aim to preserve the dignity of those they help and treat everyone with the utmost respect, without judgement. They help anyone who reaches out to them and is in need.
