Liverpool Architecture Walkabout – Visiting Liverpool Central Library and Picton Reading Room.

As part of my photographic tour of cities around the UK (slow moving tour, but definitely happening)… I visited the striking, impressive, alive and generally amazing city of Liverpool. I stopped by Liverpool Central Library first, you walk a few metres inside and look up to be confronted by this abstract spiral design with walk-way criss-crosses going right up to the top. The angles allows it to look almost spaceship-like. The next photo shows how it appears once you’re right up to the top.

Twitter Portrait Series: Photo Shoot with Artist Catherine Marsh

Although a good chunk of my photography work is in and around Bristol, I often travel around the country. I had a corporate portraiture job come up in central London a couple of weeks ago.. and I was pleased to realise that I had a few hours available to do some blog photography on the way…so I asked about on Twitter if anybody lived nearby and wanted to do a portrait session with me on my way. Artists Catherine (@Catherinelm) volunteered and we organised a session by a nearby lake in the beautiful Reigate.
