Clifton Cathedral

This was an enjoyable commission once again for Purcell UK to document the latest stage of works in the refurbishment of Clifton Cathedral, a fascinating piece of architecture produced in the 1970’s.

Bistrot Pierre

Bistrot Pierre have continued to expand their business over the summer with the opening of stunning new restaurants in the Mumbles area of Swansea, Kidderminster and Middlesborough. It’s been enjoyable working with their marketing team at each of the new bistrot’s (and also sampling some more of their menu!).

St Fagans National Museum of History

I had the pleasure of photographing the completed refurbishment of this well loved museum on the outskirts of Cardiff over the summer for Purcell UK Architects. The redevelopment of this Grade II listed museum building designed by Percy Thomas Partnership in 1975 is the latest stage of an extensive programme to transform the National Museum of Wales. The £30 million Making History project was awarded £11.5 million by the Heritage Lottery fund in 2012, Wales biggest ever HLF grant.

Cocktails!

I spent an enjoyable day photographing these amazing cocktails in the studio over the summer for a bar menu. We did stay sober - honest!

The Grove - Spring

In addition to their guest chef evening, I’ve also been at The Grove during the spring season to cover the extensive gardens in their spring glory and also the new food menu developed by executive chef Allister Barsby. It’s no wonder The Grove was voted Welsh Hotel of the Year by the Good Hotel Guide for 2016.

The Grove - Guest Chef Evening

I had a great day/evening at The Grove in March photographing their latest Guest Chef Evening with the renowned Michael Wignall and his team from Gidleigh Park. Truly incredible food was enjoyed by a full dining room of guests who seemed to be having a great time!

Public Health Wales offices, Cardiff

After over 20 years in the business, it’s not often that I’m totally taken aback by a project. I was contacted late summer by Rype Office regarding an upcoming office fit out they had coming up in Cardiff. What was different here is that Rype Office take used furniture and refurbish and remanufacture it to enable an attractive, sustainable office fit out. The finished scheme was way above my expectations and a reminder as to what can be done with a bit of imagination and by exploring sustainable alternatives.

Another architectural highlight photographed in early autumn for Purcell UK. Here there was a combination of a new visitor centre and conservation and restoration work of the chapel.

Ysgol Bro Dinefwr

It’s been a busy year for architectural photography with an interesting range of projects that I’ve visited for a number of great architecture practices. This shoot made an impression with the vibrant atmosphere in the new school of particular note.

The Grove, Narberth

Over the summer, I’ve paid a few further visits to this amazing gem of a hotel located in beautiful countryside near Narberth in Pembrokeshire. These visits were primarily to photograph the new luxury suites designed by renowned interior designer Martin Hulbert. It was a pleasure to work with Martin and Jay from Martin Hulbert Design to photograph these beautifully detailed rooms which promise a true 5 star country hotel experience.

Bistrot Pierre, Birmingham

It was good to be involved in the launch of Bistrot Pierre’s latest restaurant in Birmingham earlier this year. Situated in a Grade II listed building on the city’s bustling canalside, the bistrot is located in Gas Street, close to The Mailbox, Birmingham’s most stylish shopping destination.
