Placemaking Shoot - Smithfield

Back in November, in that tiny little window of opportunity we had between lockdowns, I was commissioned to photograph Smithfield – a new mixed-use district of Stoke-on-Trent.

The area includes residential and office space, a hotel, restaurants and a generous central public square and boulevard, as well as some really interesting architecture. The brief included placemaking / property / architecture photography, interiors and lifestyle, with a view to building a suite of images to promote the development to a new, dynamic, young professional audience. Shame about the lack of people passing by in the photos but that’s outdoor photography in a pandemic for you.

Here are a few selected images from the shoot. Learn more about the area and the development:
