Seabird

There’s a song that was introduced to me quite some time back. Introduced by someone I keenly listen to – and very much to my benefit. He has not only a knack for patience but a wonderfully eloquent affection for music.

It’s called Seabird, by the Alessi Brothers. It’s extraordinary and has a certain but effortless melancholy, enough to suit your very own and quickly dispel it.

And I have been away from land too long and need to come home…

…so I am back with great excitement and enthusiasm – and a familiar sense of calm and serenity that follows an outpouring of words – not indulged for years.

It’s exciting to be again rolling with the blog-post-punches and expressing a little of my one true love and motivation…other than my most beloved motorbike, of course.

Here’s a few from a recent jaunt to the Brecon Beacons in Wales. Skirrid Mountain it’s called, or to call it by it’s real name, Ysgyryd Fawr or ‘Holy Mountain’.

It’s the first time in years I’ve taken pictures only for myself and me alone. Oh how I loved it, running and darting about, falling over and perspiring energetically.

There’s nothing really more to them than a re-stoked fire, picking up a fiercer flame.

And that’s the beauty.

COLDSTREAM

Welcome to a PDF book of an imploded project.

Very much to my chagrin this work has fizzled and popped into little more than nothing at all. Consequently I ve decided to make a small photo essay of the photos taken to date.

I am frustrated, annoyed and hunting for a resolution!

Footy

Last week I had to shoot some video and stills as part of a project commissioned for a sports brand. It involved visiting two junior football clubs in both north and south London.

Great fun it was.

Here are some photos.

Thrill

Yesterday was a hugely productive day. My new camera and lens were both taken for a spin, proper.

Absolutely thrilling.

Again, these photos form part of an ongoing project that has now entered its second year.

Whirlwind

This last week  has been  a particularly exciting number of days. A job in New York was pushed my way and I – with absolute joy – jumped, hit the ceiling and then began to shake uncontrollably.

Jobs similar to this wonderful assignment rejuvenate and wash away those dithering doubts that  hinder development. It’s good.

Welcome to New York:

The Tower

These following photos again comprise a small part of a large ongoing project with a Guards regiment.

Guarding the Tower of London is one of their core public duties. I’d never been before (oddly enough) and enjoyed every minute.

The images follow their departure from Wellington Barracks to their respective guards.

And Another Exercise in Understanding

These images comprise part of an enormously exciting ongoing project.  In the not-so-near future they will be collated and put into an extensive photo essay.

Welcome to exercise number three.  Number two and the first and most comprehensive post can be seen through their respective links.
