Next Steps - New Website

Near the end of last year, I was commissioned by Next Steps Community Care, who are an independent care provider supporting adults with learning disabilities, autism, complex needs, challenging behaviour, mental health needs and physical disabilities. It was a privilege photographing such wonderful people and being able to spend time with them and to shoot a range of new images for their forthcoming website.


L & Q - For the love of a mother

Working on behalf of London & Quadrant,  I had the opportunity of meeting Annie who has recently published a book about her life growing up in Northern Ireland during the troubled times.  The story behind the shoot was to capture Annie relaxed within her home and at the same time featuring her book. It was interesting to learn and hear her talk about her upbringing in Northern Ireland and to understand the person behind her story.

ART ON A POSTCARD...FEATURED IMAGE 

The Hepatitis C Trust’s fundraising arm, Art on a Postcard will transform into Photography on a Postcard for the month of October. We plan to replicate the success we’ve had in the art world with photography and held an open call for upcoming talent to show alongside Wolfgang Tillmans, Martin Parr, Dougie Wallace, Edmund Clark, Tom Hunter, Simon Norfolk, Chris Steele Perkins, Jenny Lewis, Homer Sykes, Eleanor Macnair, David Hoffman and many many more well known and loved photographers. 

The public will be able to purchase a ticket guaranteeing them a photograph, although they won’t know which card they have won until the show closes. The winners will be drawn using a computerised random number generator on Monday 30 October.  Each photograph will be an edition of one and will come with a signed certificate of authenticity.

The photographs will be on display at theprintspace, Shoreditch from 12th – 24th October, with a Private View taking place at 7:30pm on 12th October. All the money raised will go to The Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate hepatitis C from the UK by the year 2030.

Nordoff Robbins 2017

Now in my forth year producing images for the Nordoff Robbins' Annual Report, the images are also well used throughout offline and online publications with new branding by Sherry Design (www.sherrydesign.co.uk). With a new brief this year which focuses on the individual playing an instrument, the images also create an ambience on the site.

It's always interesting to see how branding and images come together and rewarding to see my work featured on several of the new publications below.


Going Under !!

The winter is soon approaching and with my ongoing photographic series, I wanted to approach the cold water lido theme from underwater to see a different perspective of a Cold Water Swimmer. These are few images from today as an initial start to the project ! Also great to test out my new camera, new to shooting under water, but great fun while getting head freeze !
