The Blog of North East photographer and motorcycle enthusiast
I love life working as a Professional Photographer in the North East of England and enjoyed supporting charities across the UK and around the world through the Design Aid charity I founded.
I enjoy a genuine passion for Photography, Design, Art and Motorcycles.
I began work as a professional photographer in Newcastle upon Tyne back in 1980 working for the North East’s leading Photographic Studio “Photogenic” 10 years later I went into business for myself and established Allinson’s Photography.
I now have millions of professional photography commissions and other photographic assignments behind me, (from Industrial photography, Commercial photography and Advertising photography to PR and Wedding photography). I continue to enjoy the daily experience of using my skill and passion to deliver a professional photographic service.
This Blog is simply about the things that interest me or that I think other friends, clients, beneficiaries and colleagues might find helpful, interesting or entertaining. I hope you find the posts and links I find interesting, don’t forget to look me up on twitter and like my page on FaceBook
