Images of the week…my baby broke & cheese sandwiches???

20:56 17/04/2015

  Totally missed my Thursday slot…apologies and 2 for my sins Romania seems to have a habit of breaking things ( bones, stomachs, film and cameras) . It seems like this project is out to test me in many ways. But I’m learning; not to drink unpasteurized milk, not to buy film off ebay and […]

image of the week…swapping decisions..

This week I need some help. I am delighted to report that just in time for the deadline I managed to squeeze in a last swap for Stuart Pilkington. (http://www.theswap.info/). Stuart is one of the most supportive shooters out there in the photographic community. He brings together image-makers and encourages them to embark on mini […]

  The latest trip to Romania was a real eye opener. I’ve seen poverty worldwide from Ghana to Glasgow but the Roma estate we visited was a real shock to the system. As we entered a lady in her late 50′s clambered out from a skip and crossed our path, my eyes following her as […]

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

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. […]

Image of the week…oui oui..(jouer avec les chiffres)

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 […]

Before I hit the hay after travelling to Amsterdam and back today (via Southend) I have a weeny post for you. If I dare try to tell a tale I fear I’ll either fall asleep, or write utter gibberish ,so Ill keep it short This image is from way, way back when I was on assignment […]

image of the week …Dammmm it’s cold- fail to succeed

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 […]
