I’m finally sharing the results of a very interesting art commission.
This is the Kai Face.
It is the biggest thing I’ve ever worked on, in terms of time I spent on it (indescribable), and also size – this is a piece not made for the internet. It’s going to be printed at least 2 metres tall.
I am featured in an astounding new book ‘Altered Images’, compiled by RomanyWG.
The book has 50 contributing photographers from 18 different countries, including artists you may have heard of through Flickr and other photo-sharing sites. The artists include Max Sauco, Aaron Nace, Solea/Carmen Gonzalez, Mattijn Franssen and Lissy Elle. My images [...]

This is my first music video made for LA-based band Gunslinger, filmed on location in one day, in Ashdown Forest in Kent and an abandoned house in East Sussex.
This video was originally planned and filmed for Gunslinger’s track Run for your life. But it was in editing, one night in the early [...]
Last year I shot Tim Andrews as part of his unique project, where he put himself forward to be shot by over 100 photographers including Rankin, Jillian Edelstein, and Harry Borden.

I met with the management and the band at my East London exhibition in August, and we’d been on the lookout for interesting locations for a collaboration since then. The brief was to produce publicity photos using styles and techniques from my own [...]

In September I was commissioned to shoot images for a fashion label called Apple & Eve. The theme was to be quintessentially English, using quaint locations, which was very much to the taste of the Phillippines-based brand. There were a lot of images resulting from the one-day shoot…
The shoot involved two different [...]
Only this week have I announced my first London workshops for 4 & 5 Sep, but I’ll waste no time in also letting you know I will be doing collaborative workshops with fellow art photographer Brooke Shaden on the US west coast in November!
MASTERCLASS: Bringing art into photography
This course is for photographers/aspiring artists who want [...]
Recently I had the pleasure of photographing a man called Tim Andrews. Since retiring from his job as a lawyer because of Parkinson’s disease, Tim has been photographed by over 100 different photographers, from photography degree students, to ‘established’ artists including Rankin, Harry Borden, Mike McCartney and Jillian Edelstein, who have all interpreted his character and [...]
Last week I went up to London to judge on the panel for POTY09, Photographer of the Year, one of the world’s biggest photography competitions. Hosted by Digital Camera magazine, the competition was open to everyone, was free to enter and had 10 different categories covering everything from wildlife to fashion.
The deputy editor from DC [...]
Here is a commissioned photoshoot I did for a very lovely lady called Jane who saw me in the newspaper in May, and came down from Bridlington to Brighton (on her broomstick) to get shot for 2 days in various places round Sussex, for images to celebrate her 40th birthday.
