I won’t be at the Crime Festival in Harrogate this year

It is with great sadness and disappointment that I have to report that I won’t be at the Crime Festival in Harrogate this year. After four (three in an official capacity) happy years covering the event, HIF has decided to try someone new for their 50th anniversary celebrations. I'm gutted that I won't be there [...]

Well done Evening Standard!

A photographer friend of mine just sent me a photo she snapped on her mobile, its a picture of part of a page in today's Evening Standard (Thurs 17th Dec). As you can see in the image (below) it's one of my photographs of Cathi Unsworth taken at the launch of her book Weirdo. Brilliant, [...]

Cathi Unsworth – Without the Moon

Thursday night was spent at the Horse Hospital photographing the Launch Party for Cathi Unsworth's latest book Without the Moon. The book is set during World War II, so a lot of the people dressed up in suitable attire for a night out in the 1940s. With music by Earl Okin and a special appearance [...]

Against the wall?

I was just reading a Facebook post by the author Sarah Hilary about posing for photographs and she said "I was simply told to avoid brick walls (as back drops) and to smile sweetly.". Now, some of you who know me will know that one of my favourite expressions when asking for photographs is "Can [...]

Fractalius what?

I've been playing with a new plugin for Photoshop called Fractalius after seeing a few examples on DeviantArt of images that had a weird wavy live fractal effect. Going through some of my nature photographs I selected a handful of them and processed each of them through the plugin, adjusting the the settings for each [...]

Theakstons Crime Festival 2014

It's been rather a busy couple of weeks: as you'll have read I was at The Village Festival on the 12th July and then (no rest for the wicked!) it was straight off to Harrogate for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Festival 2014. This is the second year I've been the Official Photographer and it [...]

Went to a new festival last weekend down in Chalkwell (near Southend) called The Village Green Festival. I was working at one of the events (Dragnet) and didn't know what to expect, "How big can a village green be?" I thought to myself. To say I was staggered by the size of the festival would [...]

Catherine Bruton – I Predict A Riot

Photographed a lovely little event yesterday in Bath at Mr B's Emporium of Reading Delights. Not only does it have one of the best names I've ever seen, but it is also one of the nicest independent book stores I've been to! Wandering about there are nooks and surprises around every corner and upstairs a [...]

Taylor Wessing… 2014

I've been thinking about this competition for a while now and even worked out what photograph I would submit if I did enter this year. So when the email arrived this afternoon saying that the call for entries this years Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize was open I rushed over to the website. I read [...]

WhiteWall Test Prints

Got my test prints from WhiteWall... They look really good, very pleased with them. I ordered three different types of print, using the same photograph so that I could compare the different finishes with the same image. This is what I ordered: - Original photo print under acrylic glass - Direct print on aluminium Dibond [...]
