A recent commission in Dublin to photograph behind the scenes at the kitchens of the rather luxurious Merrion Hotel. I spent a couple of days with the executive chefs and their teams documenting the work across the two Michelin starred Patrick Guilbaud restaurant and the Garden Rooms restaurant.
A recent photography commission for Barclays: ‘In The World’ . I spent a day photographing Lee Faulkner a volunteer with the Central Brecon Beacons Mountain Rescue Team out on a training drill.
A recent portrait commission with Chery Foster for the Guardian Weekend Magazine. Cheryl holds the all-time record appearance for the Wales women's national football team, having played 63 times. She also became the first female referee to take charge of a men’s Welsh premier league game. Pictured immediately after she’d refereed a Welsh premier league men’s game at the Deeside stadium in Connah’s Quay, Flintshire
A recent photo commission from the Dutch magazine Elsevier Weekblad. The feature focussed on the impending removal of the UK form the European Union and the effect that a 'no deal' may have on certain sectors and industries within the UK.

Over the last couple of years I have had the opportunity to shoot behind the scenes with the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car project on a number of occasions. The above is a small collection of my favourite images from these great commisisons, taken at their HQ in Avonmouth. The team and driver Wing Commander Andy Green recently took the car up to 200mph on a test run in Cornwall. The aim next year is to hit 600 mph, then 800 mph in 2019 with the final aim of 1000mph to be hit in 2020. An ambitious and exciting project to follow.
A recent photography commission for British Land. Stalking the streets of Paddington shooting street portraiture with Westminster's best dressed.
As someone who actively avoids attention and favours blending in, I'm always fascinated by people's desire to stand out from the crowd through outward appearance. Fascinated and slightly envious.

Amy with her support dog Stanley the black Labrador. You are not allowed to play with Stanley when he has his working dog jacket on. He's pretty proud in his little blue jacket.

A day out photographing two young chaps on the Dorset Coast, learning to coastal forage with Scouting Magazine.
I'm very fond of this portrait taken towards the end of last year. It was actually shot during a break between other setups and ended up being my favourite photograph.
I've driven past the imposing steel works at Port Talbot hundreds of times whilst wondering exactly what goes on inside the post apocalyptic structures visible from the M4 motorway. I was lucky enough to photograph a job for the Welsh Government that took me inside the Hot Strip Mill, this is the part of the steel works where a 23cm thick slab of molten steel is transformed into sheets 2.5cm thick.
The steelworks is one of the most incredible places I've ever visited. It felt like an alien world, something out of the Ridley Scott movies. Scorching heat, plumes of steam and molten metal. A truly unusual place to photograph.
Over the Summer of 2016 I received a fun set of commissions from the Telegraph, which involved travelling around the UK photographing a series titled 'Bizarre Blighty'. The series focused on eccentric events and peculiar pastimes particular to our funny little island. From Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling to Black Pudding Tossing competitions. I haven't had a chance to edit through all the images shot for the commission (time time slipping through my fingers), but here's my picture story from the Ferret Racing event at the annual Chatsworth Country Fair. I'll endeavour to get the other photo stories up on the blog as soon as I get enough free time.
