Reportage Shoot Around Leeds
I was commissioned to produce a set of images to promote the marketing of The Leeming Building, which is basically the offices at the Leeds Market. A major part in Leeds history, this iconic Grade 1 listed building has been rejuvenated to become a collection of unique, design led work spaces created to attract likeminded businesses. Dan, the creative director wanted me to capture relaxed natural feeling images of the hipster/artisan/independent side of the city’s local amenities. Armed with only my charm, wit and a cover letter to introduce myself to shop keepers and restauranteurs etcetera, I spent two half days seeking out interesting angles, people and cameo shots. It was a really enjoyable shoot, taking me back to my student days with free reign to use my vision, connecting with people and the environment. I also shot all the external and internal photography for the brochure. Dan was really pleased with the final set of images and I’ve attached a few of my favourites below. Cheers, H.

Central Square is an iconic new office building, with the best design and specification ever seen in Leeds City Centre to date, so when I was asked to produce a full set of images for the developers I jumped at the chance. It took two days to produce internals, externals and twilight shots, organising models, lighting and negotiating the last of the workman on site. Account director Claire described the images as “Fantastic”, which is always a welcome pat on the back . Check out the links and published pages below. Many cheers, Harry.

When I’m a Tourist I just Can’t Help Myself!
La Sagrada Familia is a calling for anyone who visits Barcelona. It’s just that when you go to these popular city destinations they are often spoilt not only by the massive numbers of tourists from all over the world but by the way they behave -in public! Anyway, I just can’t help myself taking their pictures, I pretty much forget about the attraction and focus on the tourists, I find them fascinating and they make great models as they seem absolutely oblivious that I’m taking photos of them due to the sheer numbers of photos being taken around me. It’s great fun observing this behaviour, I’ve started building a collection of “TOURISTS” and will publish more when I travel in the future.
This is my portrait of The Deltic Engine Driver at the North Yorkshire Moors Railway Diesel Gala Weekend, it’s a weekend full of characters and trainspotter types rubbing shoulders with holiday makers! The Deltic was the main east coast intercity engine for twenty years before the High Speed Trains (HST) replaced it in the 1980’s. I wanted to capture his intensity, most of the time he wore a smiley face for all the tourist snappers, but with a little patience I captured him in with an intense mood and great lighting -I’m really chuffed with his portrait. Enjoy, Harry.
I photographed the marketing pdf and brochure for Project Latin in The City of London. The light proved really difficult and I tried a few times over the day, to get this cover shot. Late in the day thought, the light became glorious with sin skimming down the main front side and reflecting back onto the darker narrow right side with a dabbled sparkle. I was really pleased in the end! I’ve attached the full pdf showing my complete shoot from the day. Cheers, H

Whilst shooting for an office development in Hull, my brief included capturing some iconic scenes of Hull. Anyway, this full moon ascended over the deep and it took a while to seek out the optimum long lens angle to compress the depth in this image. My client loved it. H.
