Spitalfields Market

Spitalfields is the largest wholesale fruit and vegetable market in London. Originally in the City, it relocated in the 1980 to Leyton in East London. Since then it has become significantly more diverse as traditional grocery stores have either been replaced by supermarkets or taken over by minority populations most notably Turkish. The market opens from midnight to around 8am but most of the action is over by six.

City of London Academies

Over four weeks I visited six City of London Academies taking photos for their websites and prospectus. All seem to be doing amazing work giving their pupils a great opportunity.

City events

Over the summer of 2019 the City of London put on a number of events across the Square Mile culminating in the extraordinary Générik Vapeur and Gorilla Circus night parade.

Guildhall Art Gallery

Influential blogger were invited to a tour of the Guildhall Art Gallery and the work done behind the scenes to store and conserve the collection

Artichoke sound and light show

Artichoke work with artists to put on events in public spaces. This was a spectacular sounds and light show in Aldgate.

Marina Rinaldi

Marina Rinaldi is a beautiful shop selling clothing for normal-sized women. They were having a refit in the summer and it was a great pleasure to take photos of the new set-up with some stunning interior features.

Career Ready

Career Ready is a charity that places promising kids from disadvantaged backgrounds with mentors in businesses. I visited a number of them doing internships at locations around London, mostly in the City and Canary Wharf. There were some inspiring stories.

Addison Lean

Taxi company Addison Lee recruited Olympic champion Laura Kenny to publicise a cycle safety campaign aimed at reducing “car-dooring”. The purpose was to teach drivers to open the door with their opposite arm as this naturally positions their head to be facing backwards so they see cyclists approaching from the rear before their door is fully open. Laura was a real pro and we got some great shots in a very short time. Images were quickly edited to make afternoon papers.

Jon Snow and Hilary Ineomo-Marcus

It’s a great pleasure when one’s profession brings allows you to meet your heroes. I’ve always been a big fan of Jon Snow and have seen him in the background of a number of ITN commissions. This time he was very much in the foreground posing for some photos while chatting with former prisoner and now talk-show host Hilary Ineomo-Marcus. Jon is a patron of the charity Reprieve and was interested in helping Hilary in his new career.

After the News

ITN are launching a new news show with Emma Barnett and Nick Ferrari. The latter is someone who’s never appealed to me on the radio/tv but in person he was charm itself. Nick and Emma were having a run-through with production staff playing the role of the shows guests. I couldn’t help feeling they might have outperformed them.
