Master Shipwright’s House

Fresh back from our first ever stateside Fashion Shoot Experience in Brooklyn (so much to come later from that!) we’re adding a new London location to our Fashion Shoot Experience event for the spring and early summer.
The location is the Master Shipwright’s House in South London, a humongous and beautiful location with 5 centuries of [...]

Your comments chart ‘the human parasite’ »

Your comments chart ‘the human parasite’

The beautiful and broken human parasite. I have loved to see the comments so far on Flickr which have cited the look of Dali and H.R. Giger, as well as taken on other interpretations of the creature as a seed of new life, the germination of a better humanity, life-making as well as life-taking. But that is not all. Having been inspired and stimulated by the comments on my images on Flickr recently, I want to place the words of my viewers directly onto the image, making it into an anatomical chart.

What I loved and learnt in 2011

What a year!
By no means has it been an easy year, or a year where I’ve got everything I want.
This year has been more about making things happen in the face of not being able to get quite what I want, and learning slowly about what my goals actually are.

Above: my favourites of my [...]

Review of Lara Jade VS Joey L, Photographer Shoot Off

I was asked by Lara Jade if I would review her new DVD. Though I have never ‘reviewed’ anything on my blog before, neither have I ever really had something given to me that I want to review. So, thanks Lara. And here goes my impartial take. I hope Lara knows what she got herself [...]

And your iPad becomes useful again…

I don’t whoop and shout about every single feature or publicity piece I get, but I just have to blog about this.
There’s a new iPad magazine out by Ilex called ‘Photographer’s I’ which is “a revolutionary departure in the world of photography magazines”, and I have found to be a delight. If you have one [...]

It’s that time of year again

…when the landscape strips itself bare. (click the image to view larger),
Thought I would put together a montage of b/w nudes. Three are from last winter, and also one I produced the other day, Against the grain, bottom left.
B/w is not something I do generally do a lot. But when I have an image which [...]

Why the John Lewis Christmas advert is so much better than the Littlewoods one

Yesterday on twitter I felt the urge to tweet my reaction to seeing the latest Littlewoods TV advert. Kids on stage, instead of performing the Nativity play, sing a popstrel ode to capitalism, naming an array of branded gadgets, the audience full of proud smiling parents. The voiceover talks of interest free credit, [...]

Flash[ing] at sunset

‘Deliverance’
An unexpected one – which goes without saying for most of my images – but particularly ‘unexpected’ as I didn’t set out to do a happy dynamic ‘multiplicity’-type picture, as a result it doesn’t fit anywhere in my current series but I just went with the flow.
Whilst working in the [...]
