I’m exhibiting the results of my year-long photography project called The London A to Z Project. The project was an exploration into the unknown: every month for a year, I would photograph a different part of London based on where a flipped coin landed on the A to Z atlas. The exhibition runs from 11 […]

Many thanks to all the lovely people from The Camera Club who came to my Lightroom workshop last night.

I’m pleased as punch to donate my time as one of Festinho‘s official photographers. Festinho is a simply marvelous little charity music festival, where all proceeds raised go to support the ABC Trust and their amazing work with Brazil’s underprivileged children. I think Festinho is pretty special: I don’t think there is any other festival […]

A huge thanks to all the members of The Camera Club who came out last night to attend my workshop. We even had to pull in a few extra chairs – I had no idea it would prove so popular. I look forward to running additional workshops in future, so if you have ideas of […]
