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!

Bistrot Pierre

I’ve photographed a few more of Bistrot Pierre’s latest restaurants as they continue to expand their successful business into new areas throughout the UK and also been involved in photographing their new spring/summer menu. It’s also been pleasure to sample some of their delicious menu at the shoots!!
