Just a quick update since I've not posted for a while.
2017 has been a great year so far; amongst other things I made the risky move of leaving my day job of 14 years to going full time in photography. So far it's been quiet whilst I set up, refresh my portfolio, make new contacts etc, but it's also been fun as I've had some interesting commissions for headshots from local business people (although working from home near the fridge and food cupboards is amazing/dangerous to my waistline).
Last month I curated the People of Leeds twitter account (and will soon be doing the People of UK one too) and I've also been looking into business networking, setting up trade shoots to improve my portfolio, dealing with HMRC and, finally, learning to drive (something I've avoided for a long time!).
One thing I've not been doing so much for the last year or so is location shooting, which is something i'm planning on sorting out ASAP. That said, here's a few of my favourite shots from recent months:-

Chapeltown Road, LeedsChapeltown is s suburb in North-East Leeds. I've lived in or around here for a few years now. Lots of street shot opportunities all throughout the year, especially on Carnival day, which is usually in August. Chapeltown is also home to the Northern School of Dance and the legendary (at least to me) West Indian Centre.
