I’m a professional photographer first and foremost, so I’m assuming that you will want to see some of the commercial work I’ve produced for my clients.
I’ve done a lot of work for Lloyd’s Register over the years, and here is the atrium of their Fenchurch Street headquarters in the City of London. This is a Richard Rogers designed building (completed 2000), but they’ve been careful to leave Thomas Collcutt’s nineteenth century facade facing Fenchurch Street, and to incorporate the original General Committee Room into the new layout.
Whether old or new, spaces like these need ventilation and temperature control to keep them habitable, so behind the scenes there’s always a Plantroom somewhere. (though I photographed this one at another company’s offices)
And just in case you thought it looks as if the building is deserted – here’s the Lloyd’s Register Committee in a meeting.
This is the (hidden) front facade of Lloyd’s Register. Richard Rogers designed another iconic London building, of course – Lloyd’s of London
These pictures make it look like it’s only London that has impressive buildings – so below, there’s a detail of Mendelsohn and Chermayeff’s De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill-on-Sea, and a few I took for the Brighton Pavilion.
Brighton has such a range of quirky, interesting locations – here are two I photographed for a book on 111 Places that You Shouldn’t Miss …
Finally, catering on a rather smaller scale . . . I had photographed case studies for Business Link Hertfordshire, so I was familiar with the location when they needed shots for a brochure illustrating the venue. I hope you’re amused by the sticker under the lower ‘catering’ photograph. It covers the original caption, which talked about the ‘brassiere’ on the ground floor. Time heals most things . . .
