My Ultimate #TBT (2010)

Seven years ago when I was fresh faced and far cooler, I couldn’t go anywhere without my camera. The only thing I wanted in life was to be just like Nan Goldin, I positively worshipped her. I loved (& still love) the raw emotion of her images, the uncensored moments of human intimacy.
With all these grand ambitions in mind I took my camera everywhere including a trip to Edinburgh. A group of us stayed in a house that had yet to be touched by anything described as modern. So many things happened that year, we had all left university, the future uncertain and terrifying. I felt that I had to document it all. Over that summer I fell in love, fell out of love, cemented life long friendships and learnt never to ask my friends to watch my camera in a bar.
I find myself looking at this series of images more than I care to admit, but I truly love them. To me they are completely evocative of such a specific time in my life, and regardless of their merit I will always look a them with the upmost fondness.
So here’s to my ultimate #TBT, Edinburgh 2010.

HYPEBEAST x Matthew Miller

I count myself lucky enough to say that my first job of the year was fun and something a little different from what I normally shoot. Hypebeast commissioned me to photograph behind the scenes of the Matthew Miller casting for London Fashion Week Mens Collections.

Apart from feeling approximately 100 years old next to the models, I love shooting behind the scenes. Unlike other jobs, it is an opportunity to be invisible, to blend in (laughs at self ‘blending in’ with male models) and look out for little unguarded moments.

I have put my favourite shot from the day here, and if you wish to see the full article, press right here : Hypebeast x Matthew Miller

New Year, New Blog

For some time now my blog has been sitting lonely, unloved and sad, lost in the depths of the internet. But no more! As the old adage goes, ‘new year, new you’ and an integral part of my ‘new me’ is my blog.

This will be a place showcasing new work, personal projects, photographers who inspire me and exhibitions that excite me. Perhaps even a musing or two…all strictly related to the still image of course. So, please watch this space, this is my public promise to keep this blog up to date and hopefully interesting for those who read it.

Whilst everyone awaits the deluge of new work to come, here is a small selection of some of my favourite shots from 2016 to enjoy.
