David Stephenson Artist Blacksmith

David makes a range of sculptural and functional items at Lockton in the North York Moors National Park. He works using traditional hand forging techniques, often applying these to contemporary designs, producing work which is beautiful to handle and which reflects its origins in fire. All pieces are intended to outlive their maker and those for whom they are made. I enjoyed recording David at work and cataloging some of his stunning work, however the spark shot has cost me a pair of trousers !!
Small payment for a great image and we do have to suffer for our art !

One Ethical Boutique in York

One Responsibly Gorgeous is York’s only ethical fashion boutique. Boutique owner, Anne McCrickard opened One in 2006 to ensure that stylish clothing from ethical sources were made available on the high street.

One Responsibly Gorgeous ensures that you can choose fashion that is made using organic, recycled, vintage and eco fibres together with fair trade manufacture. One Responsibly Gorgeous recognises that every item of clothing we wear tells a story of production, trade and manufacture often at the expense of the planet and people.

I did a shoot around York to get images of the new Spring collection helped by two very patient and “cold” models Barbora and Fiona whilst Janet from One Boutique provided help with the lighting and essential things like coffee !!

Helen Portfolio Images York

An outdoor shoot seemed like a good idea but -3 eventually made us run for the coffee shop Helen did well putting up with the my demands and no coat !! Thanks to James for being a lighting assistant for the day.

Tim and Jade’s big day

Tim and Jade tied the knot on a blustery and showery day in Harrogate last Friday but this did not stop them and their family and friends having a great day.
