Influence-her: Jessica Ross Photography By Kian West by Kian West

Catching up one morning at Whitebridge’s Pegs Café between juggling child drop-off and collection, I sat down for a coffee and a chat with Jessica Ross about her photography craft – and, as it turned out, a little bit about moving to Newcastle, discovering the city as a new resident and with a new family.

Gabrielle Clement, by Ryan Williams by Ryan Williams

I am one to get very affected by the takings-place in blockbuster movies, TV shows and books. If Jaime Lannister has a runny nose in Game of Thrones, I have a runny nose.

If something horrible happens to Theon Greyjoy in Game of Thrones (no spoilers, please), pray for my safety.
