Snooper are a worldwide company who supply dash cameras, radar detection and satellite navigation for professional drivers. Again like many of my shoots time and budget was an issue so this whole shoot including editing was completed in a day. The following are a small selection of the images. The challenge for this shoot was to light the inside of the car/van to balance the light inside the vehicle with the daylight outside and still give a natural look.

An email popped into my inbox recently from a new gents vintage clothing stockist. David who runs Common Ilk wanted to photograph his stock for online sales but wanted to do it in very high quality using studio lights. The only trouble was that he by his own admission had no real experience in photography. So after a consultation with myself David bought a decent camera and lens, some tuition later and David is shooting like a Pro. He has a keen eye for detail, hence his amazing stock of quality vintage menswear, he is now shooting creative images for online but also of the interior of his fantastic mill building/shop.

Common Ilk is a new business and he needs a high quality website to show of his wares so we hatched a plan for a shoot to populate his website. It was a days work to shoot and edit, at the end of it I delivered 80 images. Not expensive at all for how his website is going to look is it? I’ll post his website when it goes live.

Thank’s also to the great models Jim and also Jake  from the band “The Darling Club”.

Just recently I photographed a great Community/Methodist building called The Salt Cellar. It’s a great architectural building that they are trying to make the most of, hence some professional images.

I also got some lovely feedback from them-

It is our absolute pleasure to write this recommendation for Tim Simpson and TSP Studios. Tim came
to the Salt Cellar with the challenge of capturing not only our building and facilities, but our ethos
and values.
After our initial briefing, just a few hours on site and the reprographic work completed in the studio,
Tim presented the Salt Cellar with a fabulous portfolio of stunning images.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with Tim, and came to know him as a truly creative asset with
extensive photography experience. He is honest, dependable, and incredibly hard-working. Beyond
that, he is an impressive problem solver who seems always able to address tricky requests with
strategy and confidence. Tim is someone who is inspired by challenges, and never intimidated by
them.
Without a doubt, and with firsthand experience, we confidently recommend Tim to fulfil your
organisational photography needs – be it architecture, products or people. With boundless energy,
photographic talent and as a dedicated and all-around great person, Tim would be a beneficial
addition to any organisation’s photographic project needs.

I’ve had the please recently of photographing a few times in the various Vets4Pets, Leeds. as ever with these things you have to be swift, you don’t get the luxury of time and working with models like you would on an advertising shoot. The vets were great though and really got into the spirit of things, they really got what the finished image would look like and did great job of posing with the animals. it was good to see behind the scenes too, a real professional set up.

Often when photographing busy actor and actresses you get very little time. I was very pleased to get this job photographing actor, Roger McGough, I’ve always loved his work. He came to my attention when I read ‘The Mersey Sound‘ an anthology of poetry which to my mind is partly at least responsible for 60’s british pop music. Roger Mc Gough now amongst other things presents Radio 4’s ‘Poetry Please’.

I was pleased but when I found out I would have as little as 2 photos to take, well it focuses the mind little. So 2 frames where shot and this is one of them, I had to pre plan and light the shot and just walk Roger into it but nonetheless less I’m really pleased with the image. At the moment it hangs large in Oldham Library.

Sometimes when you look at an image you have no idea how much work has gone into it. Why should you just so long as it’s a good architectural image, so I though I’d describe how and why I took this image.

This is one architectural image from a series I took of a house that had been up for sale for quite a while without selling. It’s quite an expensive house so the owners though that spending £200 on professional photographs to help sell their house was a good prospect . It worked too, within a few weeks of the photos going online the house had sold.

Just this one image is 5 images compiled together. Parts of the kitchen were very bright and others very dark. For example on the viewers side of the island it was very dark so this is lit with a flash. On the other side of the kitchen where the windows are it was very bright this needed to be a completely different exposure, as with the room at the side this needed lighting with flash. All these images are then balanced and put together to create one evenly lit pleasing image.

This was done in all rooms of the house (not so many images comped together) and this presented a lovely looking well lit house.

The following are 2 very different images from book cover shoots. The first is for a teenagers book who’s working title is “Suicide Angel”. The light painting from this images is done with torches in the dark. Its a great effect but doesn’t half take a lot of practice.

The second is for www.activedrivingsolutions.com .

This image was lit by 2 large portable studio flash, it’s quite dark inside a car so the image needs careful lighting to make the image pop.
