I meant to post this last week but lack of time got the better of me. Another good show in the Birmingham Post with Handmade Burger Company, who are receiving investment from Finance Birmingham for their new store at Grand Central. A behind the scenes photo from the shoot made it out onto Twitter as well, so now the back of my head is famous. Happy days.
Working with FourFourTwo magazine I get to see and take pictures of some interesting football related things. The most "different" so far, is the feature we did on former Stoke City striker Mamady Sidibe, who has opened a patisserie in Stoke with his wife.
Firstly I have to say well done to Mamady, he was a great sport, often footballers are very image conscious and it can be awkward to work with them on something quirky like this. However Mamady did everything asked, with a good sense of humour, and didn't complain once.
I also like FourFourTwo's editorial style for this type of story. They make it humorous and lighthearted without making the subject look silly.
Stoke isn't the first place you would think of for a patisserie, but Mamady has a nice shop and the pastries look great, and believe me the coffee is good. So if your in Stoke drop by.

I've been a photographer for quite a long time now. So hopefully I have something to say about it.
