That was 2017

Another year, nearly over, so while I’m sat here nursing a hangover, I’ll post my yearly review. As usual, these are a selection of my personal favourites. I’ve unquestionably shot a lot less this year, but that’s been a deliberate attempt at quality over quantity. For the first time, all the photographs in my final lineup were shot on film.
I never make New Year resolutions; whenever I notice my stomach expanding, I find it easier to do do something about it at the time rather than waiting until next year. I think intentions are more manageable than resolutions.
For most of 2018, I intend to concentrate on ‘Holmtown’, my ongoing project to document the fishing industry around the Isle of Man. I also intend to get back into the swimming pool at least three times a week…

Thank you, everyone, for the continuing support. And happy new year, peeps.


  1. Your portraits seem to see right into the person. I especially love the one of the twin girls who seem a little puzzled but compliant. I’m glad you’re going to concentrate on the fishing industry series – so far you have some really evocative images.

  2. This would be an exceptional lifetime portfolio, it is therefore made even more impressive that it’s just 12 months work. I’m excited about the fishing boat project, I genuinely believe it will become as important as the body of work produced by Chris Killip.
