The brief from the Mail picture desk was to capture Träkol’s shipping container exterior sat between the beautiful bridges together with the interior design and restaurant’s open fire cooking. I was given a list of dishes Tom Parker Bowles had sampled the previous week to be reviewed in the Sunday supplement Event magazine on Sunday 23rd September. Träkol’s dishes of Surf Clams, Octopus Ceviche, Osado Cooked Lamb, Pig Tails and the Half Pig Head feast were prepared expertly and presented beautifully by the chef for me to photograph. The dishes were such a beautiful mixture of textures, colours and garnish that a week after I booked to go experience it for myself. I was blown away by the flavours, atmosphere, service and the high quality of the food. I really recommend a visit starting with an ale by the Tyne, then after a night cap in Hawkers Market. The location and views are exhilarating! Hurrah for these canny new businesses in the North East, giving us amazing new experiences and something to feel proud, show off and shout loudly about!
Well this was an exciting winter challenge! I was called last minute to photograph an intimate tree top wedding in the middle of a very snowy January for a couple who had recently had an initial ceremony in India.
I drove to Alnwick Gardens through the blizzards last week to capture a single magical hour at a wedding reception that was being held in the beautiful Treehouse at Alnwick Gardens. The wooden interior was ideal for a winter event with a large scale open log fire creating warm, cosy and exciting photography.
Below is a moodboard of sample imagery from the night compiled specifically for the treehouse management’s wedding promotional material.
This week I have been all over the country shooting people, places and objects! One of the most fun projects this week was to capture Newcastle’s coastal landmarks and the Law Courts for a well known North East Solicitors new website. Here are the images of the courts, (coastal to come soon) Â I thought they had a feel of Battersea Power Station… see what you think..
