Some of the questions I am frequently asked by strangers are things such as who or what do I shoot and why? And how did I get into photography? I’ve sort of struggled to reply to those questions in the past because I don’t think my work fits into a genre of photography, and I…

The Watcher

I was going to prefix this post wildly declaring the end of my nighttime jaunts, but I don’t think that would be the truth. I already feel the urge to go out and shoot again, despite what occurred only a few days ago. The park in my neighbourhood which had become a sort of safe haven…

This is probably going to be quite a short blog entry, in word count at least, but there are pictures. Lots of pictures. I needed a distraction today and hey, this is my website blog so let’s talk about me and what I’ve been up to. What I’ve been up to is shooting someone other than…

Domestic Disturbance

Manchester has been experiencing a much appreciated (at least by me) heatwave over the last week or so – possibly longer, I lose track of the days sometimes! The air has had that muggy, electric feel in it as the sun goes down, so it was no surprise to have the humidity punctuated by the odd thunderstorm;…

Time Zero

There are an infinite number of things that I love about film photography but one of its major attributes has to be the community surrounding it. No-one quite enthuses about photography like a film photographer, and no-one has quite had my back like the film photography community. Everyone is so supportive of one another and I’m always…

Sans Peur

I’m very lucky to have ticked another country off of my list, as I find myself exhibiting in Rennes, France this month. I am in great company in the exhibition which is showcasing the work of many other wonderful artists, as part of the Expolaroid event celebrating art created using Polaroid film. The show opened on Saturday and…

Social Butterfly

I was recently sent an Instax Wide camera to test out from the lovely people at Lomography in London. There’s a little interview that has gone up today on their magazine (thank you to the lovely Eunice). You can have a peek at my usual rambling replies to work related questions here: www.lomography.com/magazine/319468-newcomer-of-the-week-elegia I must…

In the wee small hours

I feel like artists (in any form) adapt to and are inspired by their environment. During these cold, dark winter months I’ve been making the most of the night hours by spending much of my time outdoors shooting self-portraits. I’ve always been a night-owl, having had terrible insomnia as a child that I didn’t shake…

Keep on keepin’ on

So 2016 is here and mine is beginning with a few print publications impending. I’m excited and chuffed, but mostly I’m working on where to go next. As someone who works with tangible imagery, print work is one of two main end goals that I have when it comes to creating; the other being exhibiting. I can’t express…
