Liverpool

Today is the last day to see and enjoy the Snowflake Trail in Liverpool...

It's not just incredibly gorgeous artistic pieces of snowflake glory... it's snowflake multimedia heaven too! It's that good that I took my 4 year old round - after downloading the iphone app - and making it all come to life!

If you get the chance - don't miss the opportunity to see this fantastic art installment in Liverpool City Centre. Here's some marketing photos I nabbed for Open Culture - the event organisers...

The Albert Dock Liverpool - some Drone Aerial photos from the air...

This is an aerial photo of Albert Dock. Shot with a DJI Phantom 4 Drone. 27th October 2016. In the early 80's Margaret Thatcher wanted to tear it down as part of a "managed decline" operative for the city of Liverpool. Kinda glad she didn't get her way! These incredible buildings still stand majestically on the Mersey River. The afternoon light hitting them perfectly. Get on down and check them out if you're popping into Liverpool for a visit...

Expressions of a Princess... the day HRH Princess Anne visited the city of Liverpool

Another magical day of photography in Liverpool - with the christening of the new Atlantic Container Line vessel - Atlantic Sea. HRH Princess Anne made a special trip up for the event - and I had the pleasure of photographing her visit. I've photographed her on 3 other occasions, which in comparison were rather hurried affairs. This day there was plenty of time for her to relax and enjoy the wonderful hospitality that Liverpool brings! As you can see from her many different expressions - she had a fantastic day!

Ben Fogle tells his incredible tales in the Anglican Cathedral Liverpool

One of my favourite venues on the planet - the Liverpool Cathedral. I first spotted Ben Fogle early in the evening looking a little lost. It was the first time he'd been in the cathedral and was in awe of the sheer size of it. He wandered over in the near darkness and asked me if I knew where the client was. So we wandered through the incredible structure to the ornate Lady Chapel where guests were arriving. Lovely guy, totally chilled and just how I expected him to be. It never ceases to amaze me just how many British people have never heard of, let alone set foot in, the Liverpool Cathedral. Here's a few photos from the evening.

The Iconic Liverpool Skyline - a panoramic photo on a lovely clear evening

Such a beautiful still evening in LIverpool town. The Liverpool skyline is ever changing and is always such an engaging subject to photograph. Was loving the interesting cloud cover and the chance to see stars over a big city is always a bonus!

Fantastic day's photography today in Liverpool for the Sky Ride cycle round the city

The first thing I did before the Liverpool Sky Ride was look up to the sky. And all I saw was dark grey ominous clouds. But the sky soon cleared and the green leafy streets of south Liverpool were transformed into a sea of high-vis cycling vests cruising their way into the city of Liverpool. I jumped on my own bike and captured some of the action. Here's a few photos below:

Wayne Rooney in Liverpool - some photos from his recent visit

Was great to see football legend Wayne Rooney in Liverpool last week on the eve of his testimonial for Manchester United FC

He visited Alder Hey and Claire House - some of his chosen charities for his foundation. Was very impressed with his easy going and relaxed attitude. He really looked comfortable spending his precious time visiting terminally ill chiidren. Here's some photos from his visit. Nice work Wayne!

UK Prime Minister David Cameron. A photo from his recent visit to Liverpool

Arriving on his helicopter and leaving soon after - there was only a short window to photograph David Cameron on his recent visit to Liverpool. With the fastest growing economy outside of London - Liverpool is the place to be!

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...

An 'Azamazing' Evening - some photos from the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral...

With the last major Cruise Ship of the season in Liverpool, the Azamara - the stage was set for an amazing event before she departed. Passengers from the ship were treated to some incredible performances in the grandest of venues. Once again the Liverpool Anglican Cathedral turned it on with atmosphere a-plenty. Local opera singer Danielle Thomas gave an incredible performance. Her voice resonating gracefully through the hallowed grandeur of the largest cathedral in the UK. Following on from Danielle the Cavern Club Beatles gave a rocking perfomance - much to the delight of the mostly American audience.

Again, feeling privileged - I had the honour of photographing in this amazing space. I really don't think I could ever tire of 'working' in this incredible cathedral.

Special mention must also go to Adlib who set up a stunning lighting display and also the staff from the Liverpool Cruise Terminal and the Anglican Cathedral.

Awesome effort everyone!

Gianni Russo plays Static Gallery Liverpool - One Night Only.

To have a legendary Hollywood actor from The Godfather come to Liverpool is amazing. To have him perform under the same roof as where you work is simply unreal! As I was finishing up some editing from the aerial photography earlier in the day - Gianni Russo was warming up. He was still getting to know the musicians that were banded together from across Europe.

They rehearsed, they jammed, they joked. This was going to be a good night.

I went down and introduced myself. What a guy!

I asked if I could take a few snaps of him outside Static on Roscoe Lane. It's a typical little Liverpool lane that I thought might be an interesting juxtaposition with his yellow pants. He was obliging as ever and happy to be photographed wherever.

The rest of the night as they say, is history...
