Voodoo Room at Mac Arts Galashiels

This Hendrix / Clapton / Cream covers band produce excellent renditions of the finest tracks in the genre.

‘Scuse me, while I kiss the sky!


Fleetwood Bac, Galashiels, Scotland

Fleetwood Bac are an excellent Fleetwood Mac tribute band, playing all across the UK. They sell out some serious venues so having them come to the small town of Galashiels was a pleasure.


Terry Christian

I knew Terry, who has had a varied career as a broadcaster on TV and radio since the 1980’s, via a friend-of-a-friend.

He was happy to pose for a feature in Derwent Living Magazine about his early connections with Radio Derby.

Derwent Living

I was employed in a full time capacity for about a year back in 2014, when I was principle photographer and sub-editor of their ‘Derwent Life’ magazine.

See the ‘Photography’ category for more work that I produced for them (all images Copyright Derwent Living) – but here is a typical portrait for the front cover.  I would also write a centre-spread feature inside the magazine.


Corporate Events Photography

The Big Frog can attend conferences and trade fairs, when all the members of your organisation are under one roof, and take corporate portraits, group shots and the like. Here are a couple from a recent conference in the City of London, for a trade association working in the UK food safety industry.

Merlindale Holiday Rental

This website was built by The Big Frog, who also took the interior photos, for his longest standing client back in 2006 and has been maintained ever since.

Since then, The Frog has re-vamped the website about three times, having taken photographs and written all the copy from scratch, and designed the site in WordPress. So there’s not a word nor an image on the Merlindale site that hasn’t been produced by The Frog!

Marston’s Coopers

This image was taken for a Marston’s brewery company report cover in Burton upon Trent in about 1995. The older man in the image (who passed away in 2017) was retiring, leaving the only surviving cooper in Staffordshire, his apprentice, who in turn had just finished his apprenticeship.

The photo is taken in the ‘Union System’ room at the brewery, all those huge barrels in the background having been built or maintained by the men pictured.
