York Design Awards
The York Design Awards recognise great architecture by encouraging and promoting excellence in design and conservation. I've photographed the awards a number of times and am also a sponsor, which means I get to see first hand, some of the amazing work produced by architects and designers.
I've also photographed many of the entries for architects, developers or builders, so it was great to see my architectural photography on display in the foyer and during the presentations. To see more of my architectural work click here.
If your team is pictured here, why not get in touch to order a print for the office?

As well as photographing the winners, my brief was to capture the atmosphere of the event, shooting key moments, speakers and people:
The pictures were used in the press and on the YDA twitter feed.
Awards evenings are notoriously tricky to shoot as part of my job is to ensure the event keeps moving, whilst getting enough shots of each winner to ensure there's no-one blinking! Inevitably someone always does, and there may be a bit of post-production 'eye-swapping' to ensure everyone looks at their best!
I've shot awards and conferences for RIBA, York Design Awards, York City Council, Visit York, York Minster and many others. If you have an award or presentation evening coming up, why not get in touch.
