I was very happy to be asked to produce another set of photos for Jewellery Maker Rachel Darbourne. Her newest collection is made from discarded jewellery, re-purposed, and is titled “Pearl Necklace”. I was very happy with the images, and Rachel said “they’re beautiful” – we completely agree.
You can see more on Rachel’s website, here.
Today I had the privilege and the pleasure to photograph an original sculpture by Barbara Hepworth. By massive coincidence today is also her birthday!
Very happy to be photographing this amazing glass made by Toni Fairhead in Plymouth.
I was really happy to see one of my prints in the window of Homeframe Gallery on Union Street in Plymouth, it’s titled “Drama in the Yard”.
It is a photo of Royal William Yard looking across from the steps at Devil’s point. If you are passing why not have a look. I’m hoping to get some more prints done soon.
It’s 10 years to the day since i took this photograph. This was from my very first commissioned jewellery shoot. The jewellery was made by Rachel Darbourne and it was after this that i set up my business Optimo Images. In 10 years we have photographed hundreds of pieces of jewellery and other art and design. Do photos have Birthdays? Well if so, Happy Birthday.
I have been photographing a lot of food recently, for restaurants, cafes and take-aways. i’ve always loved photographing food, and it can look so good. So let me know if you need any food photographed - any job considered - big or small!!
I was very happy to be asked to cover the Plymouth Art Weekender again this year, it was a great event and lots of great images were made. Fran from Ocean Studios said this: ” Your pictures are great, thanks so much!”.
We have been getting all ARTY and adding more images to Redbubble, where you can buy prints of my work and other goods, have a look here: Redbubble
We love shooting fashion. This is from a recent shoot for a university design student.
