Hope Event / Leeds / Fuji X100

04 July 15

Ended up doing a little spot of impromptu street photography this afternoon when we stumbled across the Hope For The Nations event in Leeds city centre. I didn't have my SLR's but my wife Charlotte had our little Fujifilm X100 in her bag so we stopped for a while and I took some pics as it was too colourful and lively to miss.

George / Leeds / Pride

02 July 15

Untitled

I'm super happy with this shot, I've wanted to shoot something on Lower Briggate (Leeds fruitest district for sure!) for a while. When we saw this painted outside The Viaduct I knew how I wanted to shoot this straight away, I wanted to try and echo the facebook profile pics in composition but with the real physical flag. And George was super fierce and great to shoot with even though it was absolutely boiling! Check her out on Instagram @pupsincups

Big Trouble in Little(borough)

01 June 15

This is easily one of the silliest things I've ever shot. All the clothing in this series were made by my amazingly talented friend Lindsey James for her Violet Flamingo Bespoke brand. Lindsey is always looking for original ways to shoot her pieces and happy to let me indulge in my obsession with the small northern towns around the area I grew up in in the late 90s/early 00s. So here we are in Littleborough, Rochdale with no fancy set-ups, no proper lighting, just "Martin Parring" it with horrible on-body flash and no plans at all other than to go out and cause trouble and hopefully get some, erm, unique photos of Lindsey's beautiful dresses. Thanks to our performer/actor/artiste Gemma Daubney for being a big crazy show off and Louise Rielly for hair design and Chloe Louise Gorton for make-up. We had a ridiculously fun time shooting this; I wish I could just do this everyday.

The City Talking - Susannah Darby and Luna

20 May 15

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

I shot some fashion images for the cover of the most excellent The City Talking in Leeds. The concept was based around the real story of the tragic death of circus owners wife Susannah Darby, who died in 1848 when an amphitheatre that used to be on the Headrow in Leeds collapsed during a performance, leaving her as the only fatality. Great, bizarre, eccentric theme for a shoot and a great team of people did amazing work to make this happen, especially our stylist Georgia 'G-Money' Thursting. 30,000 copies in and around Leeds and West Yorkshire so go pick one up. Full credits below!  

Stylist: Georgia Thursting 

Make Up Artists: Chloe Gorton & Jess Auty

Hair Design: Heather @ Northernroots

Model: Mellissa @ J'Adore 

Accessories: Belles Bejewelled

Clothing: Bolongaro Trevor and Lamberts Yard, Leeds

Special thanks to David and Luna, Jake at J'Adore and Shang-Ting Peng and Dan Chapman at The City Talking and Charlotte.
