Interior + Industry
Captured moods and moments for a range of industries and events, from architectural and interior photography to property, tourism and commercial.
This facility was photographed for a new international data storage warehouse. At the time of opening this room was empty but would soon be filled with banks of servers housing billions of bits of info. Pristine facilities like this are temperature controlled environments and because of their very nature often represent a link to science fiction and fantasy, made all the more effective by the blue light.
This installation uses vertically hanging fabric with negative spaces cut out of the hanging pieces. The negative spaces, when viewed as a whole across several hanging elements, represent some of the more iconic structures in the UK.
To convey a sense of high end value, interior photography for luxury projects can often be ruined by a lack of attention to the details. In this project for a high end spa salon, I paid special attention to reflections, angle of chairs, tables, props, overall alignment and height of camera.
Tall buildings compacted and layered in a slice of Hong Kong's architecturally impressive skyline.
When tasked to photograph this high end shopping mall I wanted the final results to reflect the qualities of high end luxury - simplicity, clean lines, uncluttered, etc. Shooting from below proved to be the perfect angle to show the cavernous interior, and to suggest an inviting environment awaiting exploration and reward. It also avoided highlighting any one particular store front in favour of another.
This sports physiotherapy practise was photographed shortly before the official opening. In that sense everything was pristine, clean, and fresh. Medical rooms are places most people would rather stay out of, so it's important to present them in a way that makes them seem inviting, calming and clean.
Often mistaken for fog, the particles in the Hong Kong air are actually pollution and often obscure the iconic view across the famous harbour.
So much of great photography is all about the light. When a client requested I shoot their property development I knew that sunrise was the only time of the day that would really work. Evening sun would be hidden by a mountain range and the light would be completely different. Up before the sun and hanging out in a predetermined spot for the right moment brought this reward for my continual quest to create stimulating imagery.
Photographing pilots at work comes with challenges. Firstly, time in the air is going to be short, it's simply not convenient for a client to put you in the air for an extended time. Secondly, you're moving all the time and over cities, at the mercy of traffic controllers. What's interesting beyond perspective, distance, scale and altitude is the environment the pilot finds him/her self in.
This wall mural constructed from drum sticks can be found at the Hard Rock Hotel Macao.
To convey a sense of high end value, interior photography for luxury projects can often be ruined by a lack of attention to the details. In this project for a high end spa salon, I paid special attention to props, texture and overall feel of comfort.
A single high rise property development that stands alone can look rather isolated if photographed in its entirety. I chose instead to frame this differently, to make it appear more dynamic and aggressive against a dramatic sky.
Event photography is always an adventure into the unknown. You never know just how the evening will unfold and sometimes if not briefed properly, find yourself in the wrong spot at the wrong time. So getting to a venue early allows time to familiarise yourself with it and to also get some mood setting scenes before the crowds arrive. Pay attention to the details, like the rows and bows and alignment, even adjust them yourself if no one else will.
So much of great photography is all about the light. When a client requested I shoot their marina houseboat properties I knew that sunrise was the only time of the day that would really work. Evening sun would be hidden by a mountain range and the light would be completely different. Up before the sun and hanging out in a predetermined spot for the right moment brought this reward for my continual quest to create stimulating imagery.
Just after magic hour, one of Hong Kong's tallest buildings stands towering above the dense high rises on the Kowloon side of the harbour.

Luxury can often be conveyed through sheer simplicity. Top hotels excel in this, making less seem hugely desirable at a higher cost. Photographing this presentation box was part of that exercise in simplicity with the white spaces allowing room for text.
It's the magic of light again. And this shot can only be captured over a few days each year. And then again you have to hope the weather will be on your side. I was indeed lucky to get this spectacular sunset capture with the fast approaching hovercraft at Southsea in Portsmouth.
When tasked to photograph a corporate print run I wanted to think beyond static images of printing plates and a fully automated process where there is very little human involvement. Capturing the speed of the press was a perfect way to record the project. The speed suggests an urgency, the very speed of business and its path towards success.
This image is all about contradictions. Elevators are usually contained in dark shafts, all removed from view. Here on the outside of the head office of this large global financial corporation everything is reversed. It's about suggesting transparency and openness.
