Commissioned to photograph the Tweed Lounge’s collection of a stylish new soft furnishings range to be launched in time for the Autumn and Winter 2012/13 season. Shooting in studio and on location at Almscliff Crag.
Designed and hand-crafted in Yorkshire from locally woven wools, Tweed Lounge is the brain child of clothing buyer turned interior designer, Sally Green from Rawdon, Leeds. After a career spent sourcing clothing fabrics, often in India and China, Sally saw the potential for an interiors range that utilised fabrics much closer to home.
After a week of processing raw files here is a selection of images from my Whitby by Night Portfolio.

Whitby is a quaint, traditional fishing village on the North Yorkshire Coast. Famed for its connection to Dracula and its author Bram Stoker, Whitby has a long and rich history as a port and fishing town.
I am now looking for a whitby retail location.
Whilst on a photo recce of York I dropped into St Martin Le Grand Church on Coney Street.
I was chatting to the Warden he told me it was impossible to get a good photograph of the mail stainglass window due to the arch in the forground. I said I would shoot his window if I could take a shot from the top of the bell tower, deal on! Using a 24mm shift lens and lighting to balance the light thru the windows and the inside foreground.
Its one of the most beautiful churches in the city, according to The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland, 1868
The church is named after St Martin of Tours, the patron saint of soldiers, founded in the late 11th, there are still remnants of masonry from that period. As you enter the church, an enormous window is ahead, surprisingly located at eye level, as it was reconstructed here as part of the rebuilding of the church. It was originally the west window of the nave, and dates from 1437. It had been removed from the church earlier in the war, and so escaped bomb damage. Hutchinson and Palliser’s guide to York calls this “certainly the largest and arguably the finest of the city’s parish church windows”.
Shot at 4 o’clock in the morning. Stars are seen as moving trails of light due to long shutter speeds. Part of a body of work of local landmarks photographed at night.
Almscliffe Crag is a Millstone Grit outcrop at the top of a small hill near the village of North Rigton, between Leeds and Harrogate in West Yorkshire, England. The crag was formed due to the softer adjacent strata of shale and mudstone eroding at a faster rate than the hard wearing millstone.
