Hell's Princess

I've always liked the look of "goths". I really don't know why but I always have. I thinik it's because they're different, consciously different. Nicole put out a casting call for a collaborator and I responded

Cropped Top

Here is a selection of shots from teh second outfit Lena wore. We took some in St Dunstans but were chased off by a wedding party

St Dunstan's in the East

The first collection of images was shot in St Dunstan's in the East, a ruined church in the middle of the City of London that has been turned into a beautiful secluded garden. The dress Lena arrived in just seemed to work perfectly for the location.

"Lennie"

Lena is a professional model. She was let down at the last miinute and so I grabbed the opportunity to work with her. We shot four locations in three different outfits during the course of our time in London.

Summer's here!

As I type the weather has turned from record highs to rain. I know it should bother me but it really doesn't. The photographer in me just sees weather and wonders what he can shoot. I accept that most of you will have a different view on that subject although based on the facebook posts of some, you'd think the hot weather had heralded the end of the world!

Strike a pose!

This shot of New York's finest was staged on my behalf when I asked them if I could take a picture. I have a candid shot of these guys, they are not nearly as cool looking...

It's been a year(ish)

About a year ago, as a form of therapy really, that I launched my Facebook page as a complement to my website. I've long been a photographer but I'd never really pushed it at people so I decided to be a bit more "in people's faces" with it. As they say in the movies... it's been emotional! I really have to thank the band of faithful followers and friends who have encouraged me to push my work out there. Without that encouragement I wouldn't be writing this today. I also need to thank the people who have allowed me to take their picture, either of them or their families! That said I'm reasonab…

"Will"

I recently saw an old black and white picture that had been taken of me, my father and my brother. It used natural light from a window and was very grainy and contrasty.

Autumnal Blues?

{{ content.title }}{{ content.caption }}

I can't kid myself any longer... Summer is officially over but that means the autumn is here! I know people from all around the world will probably same the same thing but there is no more beautiful country than England in the autumn. The land turns from greens to golds and browns. Forest landscapes that had been mostly uniform in colour suddenly vie with each other for which can display the brightest reds, yellows, browns and golds. The forest floor becomes a sea of colour. Early mornings will see the mushrooms and fungi pushin…

Hemlock Morris

Earlier this year at the Leighton Buzzard Canal Festival I chanced upon a slightly alternative Morris dancing troupe.

Sand, sea and concrete

Recently I found myself by the coast. I love being by the sea

People in the uk are funny... they see you point a camera at them

Top of the world

This lady was at the top of the Queenstown gondola, we had a chat, shared the view and I took her picture. She was Czechoslovakian!
