A quick post as it is waaaaay past my bedtime.   Romania as I explained in my last post was a challenge and I’ve decided that my short trips are proving too fleeting and unproductive. Loaded with ample assistance they are a good way to recce and plan future adventures but I think I need to prepare […]

Moan proceeding: I booked a last minute flight to Romania and after 2 days contracted a vile tummy bug. Awesome. I’m so shit to be around – ratty, impatient and vexed. Moan over However the trip has been brilliant fun despite this. My translator Cornelia had little idea of what the week would entail and […]

This shoot was a genuine pleasure. It comes at a time when I am yearning to learn and explore new techniques. The editor of the Sunday Times thought of the idea of projecting the strong words of Tempest into the frame. After a few test shoots and much dabbling with projectors we eliminated the obstacles […]

Revising old techniques, learning new skills and experimenting is a must. As part of this project I am exploring the idea of producing wet plate collodion on site. Since first trying it 2 years ago I have become hooked. The craft and nostalgic smell of developer create a lustful desire to test my patience with […]

Generalising on a nation would be madness wouldn’t it? However I wonder how many people would welcome strangers to gate-crash their family picnic in the woods on a calm Sunday afternoon? Then insist they join, share their home made food and drinks and relax in the company of their relatives? Welcome to Romania. Perhaps I […]

Staring at the 6 prints the day they needed to be couriered to the National Portrait Gallery, as always I reached out for advice from anyone standing within 3 meters. Much debate was had over if to enter the portrait of the beautiful young girl with red hair. Would the cliche of twins and red […]

This weeks post is the result of me drunkenly purchasing new furniture off of ebay recently and therefore completely re decorating my room. Whilst moving my entire archive of negs and books I felt the need to revisit some old memories. This is a scan of some old negs from South Africa. – a family holiday at Christmas. […]

My eyes are heavy so a dashing post. This is an image I shot for Straighttalking, a charity that employes teenage parents to go into schools and teach young people about the realities of being a parent as a teenager. The mothers and fathers somehow managed to persuade their little minxes to participate in the […]

I was recently asked by The Saturday Telegraph to photograph a man who spends his days saving the lives of minuscule premature little nippers at a London hospital. Unfortunately we were informed that the shoot would be taking place in his office as all of the wards are strictly out of bounds. I knew this whole shoot […]
