A bit last minute, but I entered the Magnum Photography Awards 2017. I’ve literally just pulled some images out of the blog and entered them. There’s two categories, one being a series of up to ten images linked thematically or aesthetically, and the other is for single images. Although I have ongoing motifs, I’m more […]
“There’s a giraffe that’s been waiting to give birth for six months on the internet”, said a woman in the charity shop. I was clutching a giraffe funny noise maker, turning it over and over. “EEEEOOOOOOWWWWWOOOOO”, “EEEEWWOOAAAWWOOOAOOWWOOOO”. “Will you stop it, Nathan” “But, you bought it for me” “It doesn’t matter” Two days later, April […]
Happy International Women’s Day 2017. Shot on a recent shoot with the Pussy Liquor gang.

These are some of my favourite personal photos for a while. Nice n’ loose style with friends after a lot of of highly […]
She said, “You must do the ride to Bexhill; Giant Sea Cabbages, Colossal Daisies. Kingdom of Beach Huts and Overgrown Cliffs.” It was an intriguing introduction. The ride does not disappoint. It is perfectly magical. You come off the normal path onto dusty gravel, which then turns into a kind of chain mail behind kaleidoscopic […]
24 miles on the Cuckoo Trail. “Aren’t you worried about going in the woods with someone you just met?” “Oh”, she says, “We’re meeting my friend, who is a champion shooter”. #plottwist
