CEO of MEPC – Image of the Month – May 2014

James Dipple, CEO of MEPC wanted his new oppointment portrait outside their new building, 10 Wellington Place in Leeds. He was impressed by the sharp triangular corner of the architectural design which inspired me for his portrait. The sun was nearly behind him but with creative use of reflectors we got a powerful portrait. He loved it! Harry.

Triumph in the cold!!!

The recent 2013 model shoot for Triumph was in a very cold Norfolk.

The team was Gareth from Triumph who oversaw the production of the  shoot, Mark Hynds on art direction duty, modelling were Zoe and Mark, the lovely assistant Steve on lighting/equipment plus me behind camera.

The sun was added by assistant Steve using a double warm gelled Quadra head directed at the lens just off frame. This obviously didn’t warm the models, so we had a plentiful supply of good humour from everyone (and the car heating on full blast).

We produced some great shots and Gareth emailed some positive feedback which is always great to hear.

“Mate, love them, they are even better than I remember! Thank-you for a great two day photo-shoot it was a pleasure working with you, I’m so pleased with the clothing brochure and I believe it to be better than any previous version” – Gareth Bright.

Here are some snaps from Steve and some pages from the finished brochure. H


Attention Grabbing – Shot Up North Awards

Attention Grabbing

Good News Folks – I have been awarded successful entry to this years exhibition, website and book.

The Shot Up North’s 24th SUN AWARDS were announced at Matt & Phred’s in Manchester’s Northern Quarter on Thursday 13th September.  SUN’s remit is to celebrate and reward the best professional photography in the northern regions of the uk.

This image was shot in Mayfair, London, commissioned by Sutton Young Consultants and aptly entitled “Attention Grabbing”.

4 x 4 x 3 !!! – “three out of four ain’t bad”

Three out of four of these stunningly printed photo panels are from my recent shoots for Caldene, Harry Hall and Tottie. Mounted in my clients lobby, they look stunning – if I say so myself. Had to get a quick iPhone shot of them as a record! H.

Private Viewing of my Art In Landscape Exhibition

The opening evening of my landscape photography show, entitled “Art In Landscape” was a great success on 7th april 2011.

It’s was nice to see faces familiar and new, many thanks to all that came. Steve Evans from the Bradford Chamber snapped a few shots of the evening, plus I set up a quick studio in one of the meeting rooms where guests took portraits of each other on my camera – the results are below in a slideshow of the evening. Thanks also to everyone involved in the evening, your help was much appreciated.

Enjoy the slideshow. Cheers, H.

Art In Landscape – Exhibition

It’s really quite unbelievable but “Art In Landscape” is my first personal exhibition since college, many moons ago!

It’s on at the Bradford Chamber Business Park and has been a great journey for me. It’s liberating to free your images from the confides of the computer and release them as quality framed large art prints.

My landscape art photography is very clean and graphic in style. I use scale, depth, abstraction and surprise,  to grab the attention of the viewer and bring them into the photograph – often having to walk up close to get the full understanding of the detail to be absorbed.

The show is on for six weeks, starting with the private viewing on the 7th April 2011.

I’ll post up the images after the show opening, along with some snaps from the private viewing.

Cheers, H

Documentary Slideshow of Workwear Shoot

Rizues Workwear recently approached me to initially shoot a 16 page brochure with a bigger catalogue to follow – if we do a good job that is!

The client had had a bad experience with her last photographer, so was a bit apprehensive about how this shoot would go. Anyway, she sent us a very complimentary email the very next day – it pretty much say’s it all.  Thanks Lorna!

Morning Harry !
Just a quick message to say a very big thanks to all involved with the photoshoot, including, Ben, Pete, Kate, and the models.
Everyone worked very hard even with the few extra challenges thrown at us, and I hope the final results are a testimony to this – I am looking forward to seeing the very final finished articles !
An especial thanks to both you and art director Ben, for your tireless effort, attention to detail, professionalism, and care throughout the two days – and of course the many laughs ! If you were a bit younger you could be the next Ant & Dec ( Ben & Harry or was it Ben & Gerry !! ).
Hope you have a relaxing Bank holiday and look forward to catching up next week.
Thanks again.
Kind regards,
Lorna.
