  • Something New I’ve Been Working On…

    … is now up on my site


    Traces | Birds Of Prey Motion Studies

    Some years ago I took photographs of a group of Parkour athletes, in an attempt to capture the art of motion. In one of those images I saw the reflection of a birds wings and ever since it has inspired within me the need to try a similar process with birds of prey.
    It’s taken years for me make it a reality but with a lot of help I have finally made some images.
    The images depict the traces of wing beats, attempting to both freeze motion and show the abstract beauty of it over the passage of time.

    A huge thanks goes to those who helped to make the shoot possible:
    Thomas Podkolinski, A-Z Animals, RiDa Studios, Pixi Pixel, Adrian Wolfson, Green Film Kit and Labyrinth Photographic

  • A Bit Of A Catch Up

    It’s been a while… What with 2 studio moves in 2 months and working on a new personal project, I’ve not had a chance to keep this blog up to date. So I thought I’d better check in for a catch up on my news.

    Sony World Photo Awards 2014 - I am pleased to say I was announced as a category winner of the Sony World Photo Awards, in the Campaign category for my images of jump Jockey’s, taken for Chanel 4’s ‘Original Extreme Sport’ campaign. Agency: 4Creative, Art Director: Alice Tonge.

    Creative Review Annual - The same work also appeared in this years Creative Review Annual recently.

    Magenta Foundation - The Magenta Foundation have announced that they will be publishing a 10 year anniversary edition celebrating The Flash Forward Festival which will feature some of my work. And I’m happy to see I’m in the company of some good friends.

    I’ve posted a couple of links below and will be posting some new images in the next day or two from a personal project I’ve been working on… Something a bit different.

  • Last few bits before the studio move. Sad to see the polaroid wall come down. End of an era.
