Regeneration of South Manchester and an alternative view of the skyline...

Over the past few years I have worked with the South Manchester region of Wythenshawe - namely their Real Lives and Real Food campaign which has been a great success in the regeneration of such a wonderful area. Had a lovely day down there recently shooting mostly the parks and green areas of Wythenshawe. Climbing up onto the top of an apartment block gave me a nice unique view of the Manchester skyline. I often find it a bit difficult to get a "classic" skyline shot of Manchester as it pales in comparison to Liverpool - but I think this shot definitely does it justice and perhaps paints a different picture of the cold, grey industrial north that people perceive it to be...

Some photography for BBC Good Food Magazine - Van Zeller restaurant, Harrogate

First started working for the BBC family of food magazines about 7 years ago - and it's great to still be shooting for them all this time later! One of the best things is going to these up and coming restaurants across the north of England - is shooting them before they become famous! One such example is a recent shoot at Van Zeller in Harrogate. A fantastically beautiful Yorkshire town. Nestled in the cobbled backstreets is Van Zeller. A restaurant that is carving out it's own niche of delightfully fresh seasonal fayre. I also got to taste - so I can practice what I preach!
Here's some photos from the shoot:

Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar - some photos of their WOW Bar...

One of my favourite new clients - Harvey Nichols Beauty Bazaar has the most incredible in-house bar. The WOW Bar. The standard in-house cafe you find everywhere is old hat. Harvey Nichols are re-inventing the "shopping wheel" with this concept. Why settle for coffee when you could relax into a freshly shaken cocktail made by expert bartender Danny?

This recent shoot I did for them was to promote this very cool concept. Next time you're out shopping and need to take a few minutes to chill and take the edge off... head over to the WOW Bar. I very much doubt you will be disappointed...

The Recession Busting Liverpool One - a photo from yesterday's shoot in the snow...

liverpool_one_shopping-1 Had a great day at Liverpool ONE yesterday photographing images for their 2013 promotional archive. This was the last shot taken - and it really just shows that at 0 degrees and in the snow - people are out and about enjoying shopping at Liverpool's finest shopping area.

Right. Time to pack my bags now. Off to New Zealand for two months - where there'll be more photoshoots... but this time on the beach, in the sun!

Look out for some sunnier, warmer updates from here on in!

Caribbean Princess hits the shores of the Mersey this morning - a quick photo of the majestic ocean liner...

photos of caribbean princess in liverpool, photography, pics, cruise terminal, event Coming off the back of a big two week commercial photography job - it was nice to get back down and see the crew at the Liverpool Cruise Terminal this morning. The Caribbean Princess sailed quietly up the Mersey at 6am this morning.

I was back on the terminal to grab some PR and marketing shots - documenting the hustle and bustle of guests from all over the world disembarking to see Liverpool for the first time. I was also lucky enough to get a guided tour on board from one of the brilliant Filipino security guards.

The weather wasn't ideal as the ominous clouds were rolling over from Manchester as they usually do... :)

She'll be sticking around for a couple of days - so head on down and have a wee look!

Right... now it's off to photograph the annual Liverpool ONE Beach festivities. Long may the sun continue to shine!

Bike Right hits the streets of Liverpool - some photos from a sunny summer's morning...

photos of liverpool bike right freedom launch, photography, pics, event, commercial Having recently photographed their "Freedom" campaign - was great to see the images being used for the launch in Liverpool last week. The talented team over at Creative Concern whipped up a snazzy design - which is now being used to great effect.

The campaign shoot consisted of photographing locals from the Everton area who are deciding to ditch their petrol guzzling mobiles - for the freedom of pedal-powered motion. As always - met some fantastic local Liverpool characters. In between laughs - I managed to grab a few shots up on Everton brow - overlooking the City of Liverpool .

Queen Mary 2 Photo on the cover of Cunarder Magazine

photos of queen mary 2 in cunarder magazine ant clausen photography Flagship cruiseliner of the Cunard fleet - the Queen Mary 2 made her maiden voyage to Liverpool last year.

I was invited on board by Cunard to photograph the interiors of the ship. Truly an iconic vessel it retains all the charm and elegance of ocean-liners from days gone by.

I'm just double-checking with Cunard whether they're ok for me to blog some of the photos. So stay tuned!

Some Corporate Portraits for the Liverpool One Team...

A perfect winter's morning greeted us as we hit the Liverpool One outdoor shopping complex for some team portraits. The marketing team had a massive year last year with some fantastic events going on. From Gok Wan's Fashion Runway to X Factor stars Rebecca Ferguson and Marcus Collins live in concert - there was always something happening! We were lucky with some soft morning light. We hit a few locations to accentuate the diversity of Liverpool One. Although clean black and white studio portraits can be very effective - I also like getting out and about and utilising the environments in which people work. It gives a nice natural and more contextual feel to the photos. Donna, the Liverpool One Marketing Director - was about to be published in an article relating to the state of retail. We went to both Peter's Lane and Paradise Street to get some portraits that had the necessary retail "feel" to them.

First the Beatles - then Gok Wan... some photos from the hysteria surrounding his recent visit to Liverpool One

As I arrived to shoot the Gok Wan fashion roadshow event - I wondered if i've mistakenly got the wrong event... Groups of screaming girls (and boys) crying helplessly at the thought of seeing their iconic fashion hero - Gok Wan. I have to admit I did actually ask some of the girls why they were screaming. I was completely unaware of the hysteria surrounding this modern day fashion idol.

But sure enough - a fleeting glimpse from Gok from behind the stage was enough to prove that this wasn't another one of my Friday afternoon daydreams.

The crowd went absolutely nuts. The show ensued. The rest is history. Here's some photos.

Volker Stevin - Colwyn Bay seafront development - some photos from the construction site.

Construction photography in Colwyn Bay - courtesy of a new international client Volker Stevin. photos of volker stevin wessels colwyn bay development, commercial construction, photography

Brief was to grab my hard hat, steel cap boots and head up there to capture the essence of the project. To appreciate the full scale of the project - I was hoisted into the air in a steel cage. From there I could direct the crane driver to swing me out over the coastline to get some great aerial shots of the site. The new sea-front defence is quite something to behold from the air. It will eventually be a nice "stroller-friendly" promenade which is sure the transform the Colwyn Bay landscape. It's great to be working for a nice big construction firm and there are plenty of upcoming jobs in the pipeline - including a new development in Lancaster in a couple of weeks time.

The Ultimate Anfield Experience - some photos from Liverpool Football Club

Liverpool Football Club PhotosI've been working with Liverpool Football Club quite a bit recently - taking photographs for their promotional purposes. This time - a whole day spent capturing the Ultimate Anfield Experience. If you are a proper red fan - then this day is like manna from heaven. You get to play football with ex-Liverpool stars, have lunch with them and then get a tour round Anfield Stadium. The day I was there, a couple of guys had flown over from Pakistan just for this day! Now that, is a proper red fan. I'll post a few more from different aspects of the day shortly - but for now here's a couple from when you visit the LFC Locker Room. Liverpool Football Club Photos
