Working in Belfast – Part 1

Working in Belfast Part 1: Keeping us all timbered up.

A while back I decided I was going to do some kind of personal project. The idea was to push me to do something a bit different. I think you learn a lot by getting out of your normal environment. Hopefully it will make me a better photographer!

So with all the economic doom and gloom, I wondered ‘what are people actually doing to earn a living’. So I’ve decided to get out and about to a whole load of companies and places in Belfast to create a snapshot in time as to what people are doing.

To ensure it’s totally different than my wedding work, I’m going to go for an old, film look. I think the majority will be in black and white. I’m going to take some on real film too – will have to dust off the old camera!

So the first of these shoots was in a timber yard. Only spent about 30mins with them, but enjoyed it loads:

The office staff are a bit camera shy 🙂

Check this location out!

The project is mostly about people, but love all the patterns in the yard 🙂

Thanks to the team at IJK Timber Group for letting us in. If you have any ideas for locations, let me know!

  2. Lovin that shoot mate and the concept behind the whole thing. I see a lovely nice hard back book at some point to capture Belfast in a moment.
