The Staith House, North Shields

I recently created a new personal record with my North East based pub & bar PR photography for Heineken recently when revisiting the cosy Staith House in North Shields, Newcastle. This was the 4th time I have captured Kimberly, James and John as they have really put this pub on the map with their excellent menu, real ales and live music. The pub had excelled in social networking above others in the Star Pubs portfolio and so I was asked to capture social networking themed shots for the Heineken awards and Staith House PR.

Below are a few of the PR photos and bar interior photography along with the shots Kimberly took of me whilst I captured James updating Facebook. In fact technology is so amazing that Kimberly’s phone pics of me popped on James’ laptop screen whilst I was shooting the Staith House Facebook page!

The Big Cheese Making Kit

Big Cheese Making Kit has been created by Ailsa Proverbs and her team offering an amazing product for those who fancy the idea of making cheese at home. It has exploded so fast that originally the kits had instruction manuals with quick phone snaps. With the demand increasing for Christmas from stockists such as Debenhams and Harrods, Ailsa wanted to replace the temporary shots with professional ones. I was commissioned to capture well executed illustrative photos of the key stages in the cheese making process for Halloumi, Goats and Mozzarella. As food and drink photography is one of my specialities I was delighted to get on board!

The day was lots of fun learning about cheese making as I worked and Ailsa’s beautiful new kitchen was a fantastic backdrop for the imagery. For anyone interested in these kits, have a look at thier website as they make a perfect pressie for any cheese lovers!

Theatre Royal Pasqualino’s food photography.

This week I had the pleasure of working with Hannah Griffith, Cristina De Giorgi and her head chef Sam at Paqualino’s at the Theatre Royal.

I had several dishes to capture for their hospitality brochure which will promote corporate events, hospitality and weddings too. What an amazing venue to get married in! Apparently the theatre stage is an option for the service…. imagine that! For more info on the hospitality or new weddings services go to

The refit of this bistro interior was delivered by Reluctant Hero and it looks amazing! To see more please visit
