Some musing on social networking…
For the past three and a half years, Flickr has been the site where I share new work and the place I have considered my main ‘portal’ of communication with my viewers. Nearly 30,000 people on Flickr call me a contact.
I first joined Flickr in 2006. It’s the photo-sharing community vibe [...]
I’m in this month’s Digital Camera magazine (issue 91), a 6-page feature with an interview by Geoff Harris. I enjoyed the interview questions and the whole feature is well-written and possibly one of my favourite articles to date. Grab a copy…
Here is the first spread of it, I’ll post the whole thing into my press [...]

My last status update on Facebook read ‘Had best day in Bradford with best family and best boyfriend’. And I was not kidding! On Saturday 5th September, I spoke at an event called Photocamp at the National Media Museum in Bradford. It has been running now for [...]

I have known of Rossina’s paintings and photographs for a while now, through her Flickr photostream. I started to share interesting conversations with her online a few months ago when [...]

When first told I was to see our dad
My young mind imagined bandaged heroes laid in dormitories
Not a sea of rock flotsam,
The invasion of walking across them
Stepping in and about and around them,
in an all-but twitching void. Flapping of flower wrappings

I’m on the cover of American Photo (May/June) which I was over the moon about! Big news, but slightly different publicity than usual for me, because the article is all about Flickr and its ’superstars’. Alot of people on flickr have inevitably, and understandably, felt it’s their right to discuss whether they ‘agree with’ the [...]
I was in Palm Springs the other week, to attend the Photo Festival (PSPF) and give a presentation on my work on 2nd April. This opportunity was thanks to Blurb, with whom I publish my book ‘Self gazing’. They also wanted to use the time at the festival to have a meet-up with the other [...]
