Help for Heroes in Camber Sands

IMG_3088

A client coming back is always a nice feeling. A client coming back three years in a row to ask you is the best feeling. I have now done a fair few shoots for Help for Heroes and every single one is an adventure. They are wonderful to work with and I’ve now photographed five catalogues for them.


This time we all went down to Camber Sands to photograph the Spring/Summer 2015 range of clothing and accessories for the charity. Last time I wrote about celebrating Christmas with Help for Heroes in June. This time, when the world was all wrapped up in cosy knits, sipping mulled wine and counting down days on their Advent Calendars we hit the beach in shorts and tanktops. The spring and summer collection had just hit the H4H offices and we were tasked with capturing the spirit of long summer days and fun times out on a wet, windy and cold December day. Luckily with some cleverly placed lights and the sun being kind to us it turns out all you need to feel summery is the right attitude. So off we went for cycling adventures, messing around on the beach and playing in the sand dunes.


The catalogue is out now and you may have had a copy through your letterbox. Would you ever have known it was December had I not just told you?

Help for Heroes do some great work for ex-servicemen - have a look at their website and online shop to support their cause.

Skiing Faces - Personal Project

IMG_0463-Edit

Last week I took some time off and headed for the Alps for some skiing fun. The picturesque landscape and awesome skiing conditions aside I had a wave of weather-related inspiration. Seeing the skiers and snowboarders arrive at the bar for some lunchtime bombardinos I thought how much our faces are affected by weather. Winter sports are the epitome of that - wind making your eyes water, sun blazing on your nose and snow bashing on your cheeks. Combine that with the big grin of a successful run down on the black slope and a mini-project begs to be photographed. So, here are some of my favourite apres-ski faces of the Italian Alps...
