Second award for Norfolk Photographer James Neale

Last week Professional Photographer magazine announced the winners of the prestigious Photographer of the year awards. How shocked was I when I received the email telling me that I had won the category of Commercial Photographer!

Adam Scorey, competition judge and Group Editor of Professional Photographer
magazine said:

“When we saw the final quantity of images entered, we were
flabbergasted. However, what did dawn on us that we needed to shortlist 6,000-
plus images to just 16! It took far longer than we initially thought, especially as,
at virtually every other image we were exclaiming “Wow!”

I would like to thank everyone for all your texts, tweets and facebook messages congratulating me on receiving this award. I'm looking forward to the awards night at the end of the month at the Print Space in London, and to meeting some of the other winners and runners up.

A funny 'ole' day in the big smoke! By Norfolk Commercial Photographer James Neale

Yesterday I headed off to London to do a commercial photo shoot for Mune Healthy Water along with my assistant for the day Tiffany. For the photographers reading this, Mune is owned and run by Derek Sanders, brother of the well known American Photographer Dane Sanders.

I had a couple of hours to spare before the shoot so i arranged to meet up with Former Apprentice Star Jamie Lester a former client, and now a friend. Jamie has recently launched his new Property Company Haus and i wanted to drop in and see his funky new offices in Fulham.

Its always good to chat to Jamie as he is such a positive guy and I'm really pleased that business is going well for him, He recently had a fantastic piece about Haus in the Independent which you can read

The shoot was on Kensington High Street in the Whole food store, and we were going to be covering the launch of a new water. Actor, Adam Garcia was going to be there to help promote the launch. Adam is a man of many talents. He has been in movies such as Coyote Ugly, many west end musicals, and currently a judge on sky 1's Got To Dance show.

The shoot went well, and Adam created a buzz around the whole event. (Mainly with the ladies)He was a great laugh and posed for many photographs with passers by. All in all, a good afternoons work.

And the reason Tiff came all the way to London.

On the way home we decided to have a wander passed BBC Radio 1's studio. There were a few paparazzi photographers waiting for girl band, Stooshe to make there way out of the building. We waited for 5 minutes and soon got bored and began to walk off, as we turned the corner we bumped into DJ Scott Mills! Scott was a great guy and began telling us about his interview with the girl band,and that he needed some fresh air because they were so draining! He posed for a photo with Tiff, before rushing back in before the song finished.

So as the sun set over the London skyline, and the rain clouds began to disappear, we made our way to the car and headed back to good 'ole' Norfolk.

Thanks for having us London!
