In the 15 years since Jessica was born, I must have taken thousands of photographs of her; she’s now at the point where, most of the time, she doesn’t know, or care, that I’m taking her picture. When my daughter is aware, I’m photographing her, such as here, she has the most amazing sultry, ‘resting bitch face’ look; she can even raise one eyebrow when provoked, just like her Mum. This shoot was actually ‘commissioned’ by Jessica herself. Makeup and […]
I made these photographs with the very beautiful Hannah less than three weeks ago, yet for some reason it seems likes months ago? I did the whole shoot on film, which can cause ‘issues’ because it’s quite ‘revealing’, showing-up every flaw and imperfection – fortunately, Hannah doesn’t appear to have any flaws or imperfections, probably down to her regular pole-dancing and healthy eating (according to her Instagram account) All images were made using a Nikon F100 and 50mm 1.4G (1,3,5,6) […]
I remember, years ago, falling asleep on the sofa whilst listening to a Travis CD, ‘The Man who’. I must have gone-off around about the end of ‘She’s so strange’, what followed seemed to be an eternity of silence, then the secret track kicked in – well I nearly soiled my pants – I’d listened to this CD dozens of times and had no idea there was a secret track. I never listened to it again after that, I was […]
I’m driving through Norway for the next couple of weeks, and I don’t have any film images back from my trip to Japan, so I thought I’d post some more shots of the very beautiful, and half-Norwegian, Mimi Shilling. Mimi has never been to Norway… All the shots here were made using a Nikon F100, 50mm 1.4G and 28mm 1.8G lenses and Fuji Superia 400 film.
I made these images of Sophia and Abi and few weeks ago, all shot on 35mm film. The day after I sent the package of undeveloped celluloid off to Spain my life took yet another painful emotional nose-dive. I haven’t really taken any photographs since. My lack of portraiture activity has not gone unnoticed… People often ask me what the secret is behind a good portrait, how does anyone with a camera and a person in front of it transcend […]
“Storytelling is something of a Texas tradition. Tall hats and even taller tales are woven into the fabric of The Lone Star State, and singer-songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson can spin a yarn with the best of them. Hailing from Waco, now based in Brooklyn, Dickenson spends most of his time on the road bringing his own particular brand of soulful americana to a wide variety of music loving audiences around the globe” All images made with Nikon F100, 28mm and 50mm […]
The last 35mm camera I used before selling-up and switching to digital, around the time of the Millennium, was the Nikon F100. In fact, I had two – the rugged bodies had that weighty feel that oozed quality and reliability. I’ve always missed that reassuring gravitas that even today’s flagship digital models seem to lack… so when a friend of a friend offered me, out of the blue, a mint condition Nikon F100, I couldn’t say no. The F100 arrived […]
