During a recent trip to Manchester while photographing for the Anthony Nolan Trust, I’ve previously read about Shaun who was diagnosed with early on set Parkinson’s at an early age, He was more then happy to take park in my project. Every time I meat someone with Parkinson’s they find there own way and method of dealing with Parkinson’s, Shaun’s way is expressing himself through his tattoos and regular sessions at the gym. Again I wanted to use natural light and capture Shaun in his home-life enviroment.
Now in my 4 year photographing for kirk Originals, I have just completed shooting the new summer range for 2019 soon tone released. Take a look at www.kirkoriginals.com and also being featured on RAKE.
The latest shoot from AgeUK sent me of to Wonderfull sea side town of Blackpool ! I met Colin who recently lost his beloved wife. On meeting Colin we instantly had a good chat before shooting. Colin has recently started to use the benefits of AGE UK and has been in touch a friendly person he can speak to on a weekly basis over the phone, not to feel on his own and to share his weekly stories.

As part of my Personal Photographic project and new book to with ‘Early onset Parkinson’s’ I had an unexpected email from a glossy Italian Magazine wanting to do an article on Parkinson’s and requested to use a few of my images featuring Emma Lawton. https://www.donnamoderna.com/news/societa/parkinson-cure
During the Winter of the beginning of 2019 I captured Mitchell after a 1KM swim at Parliament Hill Fields Lido.
"Having suffered with disc bulges and anxiety, the beautiful Lido is both my medicine and therapy. I love the silence in the cold water and as the father of new born twins, it gets me out of a feed"
