As a photographer, it's always great to see my images published in an editorial context. So I was really pleased when a regular client; Liverpool John Moores University asked me to help out with some editorial photography for a forthcoming book publication about the history of the institution. As a large organisation, they already had a large photo library to work with, re-licencing old images, but they had quite a few photographic gaps in terms of buildings and details that needed shooting. I worked with the authors to finalise a shoot list and nailed down the exact locations of what they needed.
It was really interesting few days work - scouting the locations and then waiting for the right weather at the right time of day for the final photography.
The book - The Making of a Modern University - was recently published and I was lucky enough to receive a copy, so below are some tear sheets, highlighting my work.
Also my work regularly appears in their inhouse magazine called 'Think' here a couple of photographs from the most recent edition.
Of course if you are in the process of putting together a publication, like a book or a magazine and need some up to date photography commissioned, don't hesitate to give me a call. While I am based in central Liverpool, I work across Merseyside and the North-West.Tags: editorial, tearsheet, published, universities, education, book

In between meetings I met business man Will and got a few classic portraits on the waterfront and of course the iconic Pierhead. So if you doing business in Liverpool, need some quick but quality coverage of your time here, drop me a message.
In 2006 I was contacted by a design agency here on Merseyside to help them photograph their forthcoming debut album cover. Exciting times !
If you need last minute coverage of a speaker, a meeting, debate session, protest, fringe event or anything connected with the Labour Party conference Sunday 08 to Wednesday 11 October 2023 I might be able to help.
