Kim and I had the pleasure of doing Zoe and Michael's beautiful wedding at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield in late June.

I did a lovely prom photo session the other week with the stunning Leigh and Grace for their big prom night, These are some samples of their photos from the shoot.

I had the pleasure of doing Lynsey and Adams beautiful wedding at Hardwick Hall Hotel, Sedgefield in mid June, The weather was fine but with some big dark clouds and quite a strog wind blowing from the lake but this dampen the day.

I have been doing a lovely prom photo session with Caitlin’s immediate family and  her prom date the weather was beautiful tonight right next to the beautiful Hardwick Hall and the stunning Hardwick  Park Lake at Sedgefield.

Had another great day with Rachael from Blake Jewellery, new and exiting times are ahead with the launch of a new season of her own designs and in-house manufacture here in Durham.

I have been to Hardwick Hall a few times over the last few weeks taking photos of the newly refurbished Coleman Suite and the on-going refurbishment of the entire hotel to include new carpets and decoration throughout to include bedrooms, boardrooms, reception etc.

I meet up with Catherine and Andrew last Saturday night as Andrew for their pre wedding shoot at Hardwick Park. 

I had a great day again with the Learning Curve Group at their staff development day at Hardwick Hall, even if they did throw in a curved ball, when Brenda said “can we have a group photo of all 280 staff’ with no prior warning.
I have covered several events for Brenda and the team now, including their Bollywood themed staff party.
I think the only thing I miss since being self employed is the team work and big family feel that I witnessed at this event well done to all the management team.

There was approximatley a thousand people at one of the northeast most popular events, been sold out year after year, it always amazes me how they manage to serve a thousand people with a fllet steak and lobster, very precise with a bit of waving and pointing to make sure everyone gets served.

Kim and I had the pleasure of doing Joanna and Leilany's beautiful wedding at As You Like It at Jesmond, Newcastle.

I have done several jobs now for Atorus, today was a meeting at their new offices in Durham, If you have noticed there's one of my photo walls being displayed from my 366 project from last year .
"Atorus recently secured investment from Innovate UK for a new disruptive technology business stream.

Called into see Phil today for a inpromptu hair cut and while I was there took a staff photo of the team at Guappo, this was much to the girl's dimays as I got the comments 'we didnt know you were coming have we got plenty lippy on'. I think they all look great dressed to work in this very busy shop based in Shotton Colliery County Durham.

We have done several shoots now and Rachael and she is always a pleasure to work with, we even had Ayda her new baby in tow this time.

What a year I have had doing this full on project with just one camera the brilliant Fuji X100T

It has rekindled my love of photography which started many years ago when I got my first real SLR camera, a Fujica 605n a fully manual camera with one 55mm f2 lens.

Some days I have been very low because a lot of things have happened during the year with three very close family and a close friend bereavements, this is more than anyone should really have to deal with, but I still pushed on and took photos every day.
