As well as for work, I also like to photograph things I’m interested in for myself. This is a small selection of images of one of those little projects.
One industry that has seen massive decline in recent years is traditional tailoring in West Yorkshire. Despite the provenance West Yorkshire fabrics being in high demand all around the world, tailors around West Yorkshire and the rest of the UK. One tailor who has recently hung up the tape measure after a lifetime in the industry is Mel Woodhead, from Farsley (near Leeds), West Yorkshire. I spent a little bit of time with him to photograph him in his workshop.
