Lincoln Grand Prix 2019

May 13, 2019 | blog, Documentary

Every year I get the opportunity to photograph the Lincoln Grand Prix. A cycle race that’s part of the HSBC British Cycling National Road Series, which is a series of races that tours the country with each race giving points that go towards an overall title at the end. I photograph the Lincoln race for the local news website The Lincolnite and have the privilege of being able to use the media cars the event put on to take us around the course and drop us at various points to get all the shots I wanted to get. The following is an extended gallery from the one on The Lincolnite’s website which can be seen here:

Earlier this year I saw a call for volunteers to join the team for the Lincoln TEDx event. I’ve been a fan of TED for a long time and it’s great to support a local event such as this. Given my experience with TED and my photography it would be great to offer my help and take part.

Supplier Spotlight: David Fowkes Jewellery – ” Creating unique jewellery for discerning people”

When it comes to weddings we all love making things special. One of the things I think gets overlooked is the wedding ring itself. It’s fair to say that most of us are tempted to head for the nearest high street jeweller and find something that ticks most of the boxes but after meeting Rona Mackenzie & the team at David Fowkes Jewellery, I’ve learned that creating a ring that fits you perfectly in terms of style and comfort is not only achievable but can be a really rewarding experience.

Save Lincoln Usher Gallery – A protest story

“Art is everything you can sense plus whatever craps in your head” …reads the back of one of the protester’s jackets as he listens to a poem read out to the supporters on the steps of the Usher Gallery in Lincoln.

Lincoln 10K – A Photo Story

Lincoln 10K – A Photo Story

This is an alternative angle of Lincoln 10k run to that which I photographed simultaneously for The Lincolnite. It’s a more raw view of what happened and focuses more on emotional side of the runners taking on the challenge of the 10k. Captured from a documentary approach, this gallery shows the moments I saw unfold that were too subtle and would feel out of place in a gallery on a news website.
