Models – Abigail Horne and Matt Corcoran Makeup – Kimberley Berridge Assistant – Hannah Yeowell Thanks to Christy Whitton and Max Grelewicz for the loan of the camper van The bottom 5 images were made using Pentax 67 / 105mm with Fuji Pro 400H and Kodak Ektar 100. The rest are 35mm, using an Olympus OM2 / 50mm 1.4 Zuiko with Kodak Ultramax film.
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 […]
My two primary fields as a photographer are portraiture and photojournalism; a lot of my images are straight, natural, environmental portraits, such as those I shot in the migrant camps of northern France and for my project last year in Spain. Other times I get an idea into my head as to how I’d like someone to look or a situation I’d like a person to inhabit. However, that person or place may not be available, or even exist. For […]

“Focus on the journey, not the destination. Joy is found not in finishing an activity but in doing it” All the images here were made using an Olympus MjuII 35mm compact and various film (Fuji Superia 400/800 and Kodak Gold 400, mainly). Processed and scanned at UK Film Lab.
Here’s a few portraits I shot while I was last in France and Spain. All made using either an Olympus MjuII 35mm compact or a Fuji GW690III 6x9cm. Film is Kodak Portra 160/400/800. Developed and scanned at UK Film Lab. This will probably the last post for a while as I’m off to Calais tomorrow to make portraits and document on the various migrant camps in the French coastal town. The last time I was there I had great difficulty […]
This is the last of my ‘The things I saw’ series, my visual meanderings and notebook of the banal from a month in The Netherlands, France, Spain and Andorra. Some people have enjoyed these shots, others have not, finding them… well, banal. You can’t please everyone – which is why I don’t try to. As the Canadians say, “It is what it is”. Over the next couple of days I’m going to be re-packing my camper van in readiness for […]
I thought I’d add an entry from my travel log with this, the second ‘The things I saw’ article. All the images here were made using an Olympus MjuII and various 35mm film, including Kodak Portra, Agfa Vista, Fuji Superia and expired Kodak Tri-X 400. This images are my analogue notebook, visual sketches of my travels. ‘Sunday 18th October, Calais, France – I never, for one moment, realised that the migrant situation was so dire. Arriving in Calais is like […]

When I was a kid my parents never used to tell me I was going on holiday… I’d just become over-excited and unbearable for the days or weeks before departure. I remember, on several occasions, getting home from infant school and being asked if I’d had a wee and a poo – then being bundled into the back of the family VW Beetle, falling asleep almost immediately and waking-up, hours later, in a campsite in Scotland or North Wales, or […]

As is fairly normal in my life, plans have changed – this September I was supposed to be going to France to shoot a project on the Atlantic coast, documenting migrant surfers for three months… however, I’ve changed my mind, I’m now going to Canada to finish a long-term project I’ve been working on for about four years now. This decision mainly comes down to money – last time I was in Canada I got $1.2 for my £1 Sterling, […]

These images are an homage to my love of family run, independent, budget hotels, B&Bs, motels and guest houses. I’ve been staying in such establishments for years, for both business and pleasure. Years ago, I had a few commissions with The Times Newspaper – they’d give me £100 a day (which was a lot for a daily hotel allowance – even 15 years ago), I’d always find somewhere really cheap, never more than £30 a night, and spend the rest […]
