Centrica Offshore

​In March 2012 I was commissioned by Centrica Energy to do some PR photography to illustrate a pilot medical scheme that used the NHS to provide medical support to people offshore.

I donned my survival suit and boarded the helicopter from Blackpool with 2 NHS consultants for the short flight out to the Morecambe Bay gas rig. They were on a familiarisation visit to see how things run offshore.  It was fascinating to get a tour of the facility whilst we set up shots. I had also been asked to grab any other photographs of the rig and it's operations as I worked so it was great fun to shoot the helicopters coming in. The food on board was a real treat!

As an OPITO BOSIET certified photographer, I am qualified and insured to work on any oil, gas or renewable fields in the UK.
