Personal Trainer Cherry, photographed last month.
I spent a bright an sunny day in October in Plymouth with some of the University's students. We were tasked with photographing a selection of images in and around some of the independent businesses found in the city.
Recent advertising work, photographed for Nuffield Health's Gym Group.
A couple of portraits photographed last month that I'm really pleased with. This is Jo Hill, an actor from Bristol. Her agent got in touch asking me to create a set of interesting still imagery for her casting portfolio.
Some of my photography used in last year's Welsh Organ Donation campaign. A brilliantly progressive campaign and change in law, let's hope England follows suit soon.

An image which caught my eye whilst searching through the archives for another portrait. My own ability to read in bed is severely stunted by near instant narcolepsy. It takes me a long time to finish books and there's always plenty of half finished chapter confusion. I've been reading 'Chasing the Scream' recently which is mostly a horrifying account of the hopeless and counterproductive "war on drugs". It really is the stuff of nightmares, albeit one I'd very much recommend.Read More
A few recent portraits I made of Rosemary Ferguson, 90's supermodel turned diet and nutrition specialist. Photographed at her beautiful old farmhouse in the Cotswolds.Read More
Alex & her son Henry photographed a couple of weeks ago. Last time I photographed Alex she was 9 months pregnant (with Henry) and I made her stand in a drenched nighty (pic here). Luckily she still talks to me.

A recent collaboration with the fantastic team at Secret Music. Actor Demetris Christopolous photographed on a set in a secret location in East London. I can say no more except make sure you catch the next one.
Scanning through the archives whilst the servers backed-up I noticed this image from a test shoot with model Abi, shot late last year. It must have not grabbed me at the time but looking at it a second time I think it's a beautiful photograph, thought I'd share it here. It's interesting how my taste in images changes year on year. Often an annoyance with photography, it's subjectiveness.
A fun summery portrait shot for Lighter Life magazine.
[cp_dropcaps]I[/cp_dropcaps] spent a few hours on Friday last week being reminded of my many muscular flexibility shortcomings. Sarah (seen above) practises yoga four times a week, I try (and fail) to touch my toes four times a year.
I've been looking to add some sports and fitness images to my portfolio and finally got around to shooting the talented Sarah who's a fashion model but also a superb yoga practitioner. I wanted the pics to feel light and bright but to also show off the delicate beauty of yoga in action. We were very lucky with the location having changed venues last minute, the yoga studio fitted perfectly with the vision I'd had for the images.
Here are a couple of images that caught my eye, plenty more great images to come....
I spent an afternoon in July photographing the Lady boys of Bangkok, a cabaret performance troupe which tours the UK for 9 months of the year. The idea was to photograph 8 members individually in a variety of poses. The Lady-boys loved their big over-the-top posturing which whilst fun didn't make for great portraiture. I wanted a quieter set of images from the session. Speaking no Thai I resorted to a half mime based communication with mixed results. In the end I just let the Lady-boys get on with it and looked for moments between poses. The Lady boys certainly all had fantastic figures, but it was the tighter head shots that caught my eye. I love that they look a little awkward and forced. I also converted these portraits to black and white, something I rarely do. I felt it helped tone down the loudness of the big bright and colourful subjects.
