I had great fun travelling across the north of England to a super cool location to shoot this set of Game of Thrones cosplay images. With the lovely Jessica and her excellent Ygritte cosplay! Check our the images I shot, and watch the video below with funny bloopers reel at the end.

I teamed up with the lovely people at FoodNation to create a short Keto friendly food video.
What is keto?
A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.
When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin. Since the glucose is being used as a primary energy, your fats are not needed and are therefore stored. Typically on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will use glucose as the main form of energy. By lowering the intake of carbs, the body is induced into a state known as ketosis.
The end goal of a properly maintained keto diet is to force your body into this metabolic state. We don’t do this through starvation of calories but starvation of carbohydrates, making your body burn its stored fat for energy.
BUT… you can’t eat pizza, as bread and flour have lots of carbohydrates in them.
So here is the solution to that!
Returneeship is a pre-employment program for people over the age of 40. In conjunction with the BBC for the Department of Work and Pensions, it is created and run by Release Potential. I had the great pleasure of teaching groups the language of film, production and editing. As well as sound recording and editing. At the end of the two days, the attendees get to film and produce a live TV show. The Returneeship program gives attendees the chance to gain nationally recognised qualifications, and helps on a path back to work. The live show featured Henry Howard as a guest, representing the North Shields Fishermen’s Heritage Project. A community based project dedicated to creating a fitting and lasting memorial to fishermen who left the port of North Shields and lost their lives just doing their job.
Here’s a video I put together from the two days of filming and working with groups.
I was hired by the Cleveland Centre to capture their Wimbledon Tennis Event. Featuring Wii Tennis, games and prizes. I filmed the Wii Tennis competition and took photos of the event in Middlesbrough. A small gallery of images here:
I was hired by the Cleveland Centre to capture their Super hero Dance Off Event. Featuring Captain America, Spiderman and Optimus Prime from the Transformers. I filmed the Break dance competition and took photos of the event in Middlesbrough. A small gallery of images here:
I was hired by the IPA Newcastle to capture their latest City Event in Newcastle. It featured five member agencies, hosted by Phil Coverdale (North East City Head), new North West City Head Jackie Holt, Northern Ireland Chair Stephen Roycroft, Andrew Wilson (Midlands City Head), Andy Reid (South West City Head), England & Wales Chair Ben Quigley, IPA President Ian Priest, IPA Director General Paul Bainsfair, Director of Marketing Janet Hull, Membership Director John Oldfield and Membership Senior Executive Lynn Hogarth in Newcastle for the latest city event on 10th February 2015. It was great working with the IPA Newcastle. With my background in media I knew, and had worked with, most of the agencies and members attending the City Event. I was also pleased to find the IPA had used my image as their main cover image for the Events page (above).

My latest video is a short testimonial video, filmed for Villabela Properties in Newcastle. They wanted a relaxed piece to camera, from one of their most prestigious clients to showcase the great work they do in Newcastle. This involved setting up a mini studio in their office:
It was cramped but you don’t get a feel of that in this video. I then shot B-Roll around the office and included it in the testimonial video as cut away shots. This helps break up the video, but also disguises edits in both audio and video from the original interview.

Here’s the video I shot from this years Middlesbrough 5K run! I filmed this for their main sponsor the Cleveland Centre, who I have a great working relationship with. The highest number of runners ever for the Middlesbrough 5K run turned out on Sunday 31st May 2015, for both the Cleveland Centre 5k Riverside Run in association with South Tees CCG. Starting at and finishing inside the Middlesbrough Riverside Stadium the 5k Race was won by last years runner up Wondiye Indlebu who finished in a time of 14 minutes 58 seconds. The winner of the womens race was Justina Heslop in time of 16 minutes 40 seconds.
