Merry Christmas one and all.
This year I've decided to go digital, and donate the money I would have spent on printing and posting my Christmas cards to The Salvation Army. The Salvation Army is there for people in need this Christmas. I went along to a local Salvation Army church to photograph their Christmas service. I'm hopeful they can get some value from the images I shot and donated to them. If you'd like to donate too here is a link: https://tinyurl.com/y8wsdt4f
I love photographing portraits, and I love taking super wide cityscapes. A recent commission for OC&C strategy consultants meant I could do both.
I was commissioned by top brand consultants Good Creative, to fly to Isreal and find and photograph the personality of 3d printing magicians Stratasys. Seeing first hand the future and the possibilities of this technology was jaw-dropping.
I was privileged to be invited along to see an open day of world-class ballerina students rehearsing. I, of course, took my camera and was blown away by their grace, strength and serenity. Their quest for perfection is an example to us all.

I'm always returning to Margate with my camera, due to the joy and wonder I remember from coming here for my holidays as a child.
Margate is a classic British seaside town that has had its ups and downs. It still retains its magic, but it can be difficult to see sometimes, unless you really look.
On what seemed like the last day of summer, a crazy day of weather ended with some magic hour late light. Margate revealed itself to be as spectacular as I'd always imagined.

I have a new website! Much like the old website, but with more bells and whistles. I'm talking to you from my new blog. You can now view all my images, on your phone, on your tablet, possibly your watch...It's all going on...Feedback to me, share with me, hey, lets go for a pint!
I was commissioned to shoot a “perfect perspective” photograph of the front of Taj Stores in brick lane. It’s a double fronted Asian grocers and one of the oldest in the UK. The photograph was then to be displayed life size at The Norton Folgate thoroughfare in East London in a sort of tromp l'oeil fashion.
