  2. Mo Kolours

    A few weeks ago I enjoyed an afternoon in the company of Mo Kolours for One Handed Music. We enjoyed a little wander around Peckham followed by some bacon and cucumber sandwiches. A very pleasant afternoon all in all.

  3. Beni - Modular People

    The good folk at Modular People commissioned me to shoot some studio portraits of Australian DJ - Beni. The brief was to shoot strong, clean portraits for the excellent Hattie Stewart to work on and make into a series of covers for upcoming releases. This is the first EP - Love on the Run

  6. From Concept to Creation - Mccaul Goldsmiths

    Over the last few months I have be working on another craft maker film following on from Semblance, made for illustrator Von.

    Mccaul Goldsmiths, based on Exmouth Market in Clerkenwell got in touch and commissioned me to make a short film showing the some of the processes they use in making their jewellery. Unlike a lot of larger jewellers they make everything from scratch in house. It was fascinating to see the beautiful equipment in use and modern style they have developed. Long time collaborator Andy Telling came onboard to make a unique soundtrack and Jon Leese did a great job grading the final film.

    You can see the film here

  10. Semblance

    Von is an illustrator based in London who releases limited edition prints under the title Semblance. He commissioned me to shoot and edit a short film documenting the process that goes into making the Intaglio Gravure print. I visited the lovely guys Artichoke printmakers in Brixton and Von in his studio. See the film below.

    Tip - Try using the arrow keys when navigating pictures. Its pretty nifty.

  12. Paper Journal

    My friend Patricia has started a new site called Paper Journal, an online magazine focused on contemporary visual arts.

    She asked me to undertake some studio visits photo stories and we evolved this idea into a series of audio slideshows.

    The first is of Bobby Evans from Telegramme Studio.

  14. Norwich University of the Arts

    The good folk at The District commissioned me to shoot a bank of images for the new 2014 prospectus and website of Norwich University of the Arts. This included student portraits and images of the campus and facilities. Its always great to work with The District as their design always gives photography space to breathe alongside the vital information that needs to be conveyed. You can see some screen grabs for the website below along with a few of my favourite images.

  15. Just before Christmas I was commissioned to shoot Palma Violets, fresh from performing on Jools Holland, they played an intimate show in their practice space. I would say it was the smallest gig I have ever been to, let alone photographed. I was pretty glad I had my wide angle lens with me.

    The pictures are starting to make the rounds including a feature and calendar picture in Japanese music magazine, Rockin On’.
