image of the week…. “I’m sorry you didn’t make it”

23:12 19/03/2015

With any project, the more you shoot the more you evict images from the edit. I’m holding back on showing works in progress as I am still very much figuring out the direction I am taking, what I am exploring, and how. This weekend is Photo-Meet (http://photomeet.org/) and I am thrilled to be involved although […]

Image of the week…embedded memories…

23:02 12/03/2015

There are some shoots that embed themselves so strongly in my mind and this was one of them. Mainly because I think I had the most monumental hangover of my life; I was obscenely impatient, groggy and rude (I have shockingly foul mood swings, but I’m working on it…. amongst many other negative traits). But mostly […]

When out and about it’s always a temptation to shoot from the hip, grab a moment, capture a frame … This wee snapshot was from a stroll in Ukraine. I ‘ve said before that I believe questioning a shot is essential and often the images I decide not to take outweigh those I do. Contradictorily, when […]

Yup I missed my Thursday deadline so more than one image shall be delivered. I excitedly announced yesterday that the wonderful wyatt-clarke&jones have welcomed me into their family! I have known the team for over 7 years, they’ve seen me grow and I’m looking forward to being part of their clan alongside their inspiring talent. […]

I love to travel and a day trip to Paris was warmly welcomed. Aboard the Eurostar, I daydreamed up poetic notions of strolling classily down cobbled streets whilst nibbling on a croissant. Paris exudes elegance and romance…even at 6 am. The Sunday Times asked me to meet mathematician Cedric Villani. After a quick Google search I found a 19th-century aristocratic spider, which had just stepped out of […]

It’s been an intense (and and chilly) few days judging World Press Photo in Amsterdam but the team really have looked after us! 14256 images down to a final 6 for singles and stories. The process was exciting, harsh and interesting. The psychology of the judging experience is eye opening. Luckily, my two sidekicks were […]

image of the week…out-takes and emotions

20:15 30/01/2015

Naughty…Thursday slipped by into the abyss of red wine and music and I lost my sense of reality…but fear not the hang over was/is karma for my slack commitment. As the rules clearly state I have posted several images. A few are the out takes from The Kate Tempest shoot for the Sunday Times a […]

A few years ago my little sister moved to Berlin. Whilst I visited her we naturally decided to break into a famous abandoned theme park that was neglected, draped in vines and promised adventure. This tale ended sadly and after climbing the 8-foot high fence she suddenly gained a new fear of heights, and fences. […]

Image of the week… I found my father

So this weeks post is a neg I found from about 8 years ago. Hoovering your archive can be cleansing and insightful. This image is from our family trip to South Africa. We were visiting my Auntie Iris in a home in Cape town and the whole trip was an emotional one. I was asked […]
