More Personal Frames From A Week

I actually make photographs everyday, it’s what allows me to be me, it’s my way of understanding not only myself but also the world around me. It’s my escape whilst also being my connection. It’s not all art, not all beautiful, hell most isn’t even interesting but these are moments, scenes and fragments I see that fire something inside my brain telling me it’s worth a photograph. Maybe I won’t use it today, maybe not even next month but perhaps in the larger scheme of things each image I take is a sketch from which I can learn.
Plus these little excursions into life sometimes come as a handy escape from retouching images & doing the accounts, along with a number of the other less “rock n roll” aspects of business as a fashion photographer.
So enjoy these, or don’t, I honestly don’t care too much. These are my moments and this is my blog, my place where I can put whatever pictures up on the walls that I like.

Time for a little personal note to the blog. It has been and still remains a busy Summer period, more work is being picked up by publications and some positive vibes coming my way from various outlets. So now is certainly not the time to take my foot off the pedal, I’m still going 100 miles an hour, only this time I feel it may not be a dead end track. It’s the passion that keeps me running with 4am starts and 12pm bedtimes, the love of my craft that sees me accepting commissions despite a full diary and the faith in my ability that sees me do this with a smile on my face.
Still with all that’s happening I still find that photography also acts as my way of dealing with the world around me and remembering it’s unseens and easily forgotten. Here are a few pieces from a couple of days down in London a few weeks ago. You’ll notice a heavy lack of people in the shots yet the feeling of human presence, this seems to be something I’m drawn to in my personal work lately without really looking for it.

A quick post just to confirm I’m still here. Busy with submissions, shoots, concept building and portfolio updates so just figured I’d post a few in betweens for you to stay in the loop.

Fashion portraits made in the in betweens, that moment just after one lie ends and another begins.

Away from the hustle of the studio, just the simplicity of my subject and myself.
