Commercial Photographer - Allinson's Photography Newcastle upon Tyne

Time has gone by so quickly, as they say.

It only feels like yesterday that I established Allinson’s Photography to boost my income with some Social Photography, while I was still working for Kevin Radcliffe at Photogenic Studios delivering Commercial Photography shooting jars of coffee, frozen chickens, Scarpa Boots and flymo lawn mowers etc. It was in fact 1989!

It was only a year later after almost 10 years working for Photogenic I had been in and out of a few weeks working at Chromazone and started up on my own “proper” as a commercial photographer with Nissan as my only client.

So much has happened in that 25 years. I founded (and in recent years wound up) a charity (Design Aid) that delivered in excess of £1.4m worth of aid to Charitable projects and I worked for a short time with the a cooperative of creatives delivering a full range of advertising industry services, “the Studio Cooperative”.

I have enjoyed many different roles in my working life from fundraising to website building yet over 30 years after starting in the Photographic Labs at Ravensworth Studios, here I am still enjoying my work in photography with the same small business I started 25 years ago.

Somewhere in amongst all that I found the time to; ride lots of miles on motorcycles through many countries, get married, get divorced, move in and out of several business premises, as well as moving house several times, twice after meeting Sue. First to live at her home in Makemland and more recently a move to live in “our new home” in Low Fell where I previously lived until I was about 9 or 10 yrs old.

I’ve also gone full circle with business premisses I started out working from home in Heaton in 1989 and recently after years of renting expensive city centre business premises I have returned to working from home in Low Fell all be it a much bigger home better suited to the task.

25 years eh?

500px / Street View of Grasse by Bruce Allinson

So, yesterday I noticed that the Perfect Effects 8 App and plugin for Lightroom, Aperture and Photoshop had gone free for a limited time I of course grabbed the download straight away and after work last night looked for an image to test it out with.

Iv’e not used Aperture for a couple of years so I thought I’d open it up for this. I found this old holiday photo from a good 5 years or more ago in France and here is the result.

I think I’ll be using Perfect Effects 8 again

▶ VALVOLINE – MAN LIKE HORSEPOWER – YouTube

Great ad makes me want to grow a beard and bite the heads of live chickens!

MJW’s new campaign for Valvoline pays tribute to horsepower and its effect on man. With every grunt of the engine, modern man is taken back further to his primal self. Only when he emerges from his high-powered car does he go back to being a regular guy.

I’m not so sure that this will have the same effect on me with our 96bhp diesel Picasso!

Spectacular Moleskine Doodles Explode with Energy

This is what Moleskine books are for – Creativity and Fun!

Philippines-based illustrator Kerby Rosanes proves that doodling can be so much more than scratching unintelligible scribbles on paper. Through his Sketchy Stories blog, Rosanes shares his wonderful world of doodling in a simple Moleskine sketchbook. Equipped with an ordinary Moleskine, a few Uni Pin drawing pens, and his innate gift for drawing, the artist is able to transport viewers to a world where tiny, cartoonish creatures explode with gusto to make up larger entities.
