It was a pleasure photographing the great airy spaces in this new higher education college recently completed by Austin Smith Lord which seemed to be equally enjoyed by the students.

It was good to be working again late last year with the lovely and amazing interior designer Yvonne Jones from Chameleon Interiors on a couple of her recent projects. As usual stunning interiors and a delight to photograph.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.
