My Beautiful Assistants

Although not new to having my work published, it still gives me a spark of joy to see it in the public domain. That exciting feeling is doubled when the image is used on the front page of a publication, in pole position to catch the eye of the prospective reader and hopefully lead to them picking it up.

This latest edition of Tees Business can be read here:, and the January edition of One Darlington can be read here:

I’ve been fortunate enough to have had a couple of front covers lately from photoshoots carried out on behalf of Tees Business, and Darlington Borough Council (DBC). On both assignments I used off camera lighting to try and create a more dynamic look to my respective subjects. Somewhat precarious positioning of the lights was also required as part of the two setups - dangling over the edge of the pier for a set of images during the Tees Business job at Saltburn, and in the middle of a busy town centre road for the DBC shoot. It’s with these testing conditions in mind that I offer my sincere gratitude to those who assisted me at the time, coincidentally both former colleagues: Pete Barron, my former editor at the Northern Echo, who helped me combat the windy coastal conditions, and fellow photographer Sarah Caldecott who protected my light from the traffic. Thank you both for your help that allowed me to get the creative shots I strive for - I hope I can repay the favour!
