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!

Hard-earned/Well-deserved

Last week a dear friend of mine was awarded an OBE. It was hard-earned and well-deserved!

Surgeon Commander Anthony Lambert OBE has dedicated enormous amounts of his life to wounded servicemen (and NHS patients) – from the operating theatres out in Camp Bastion to the surfing shores of Cornwall. Known informally as ‘Doc’, his extraordinary efforts have undoubtedly made a remarkable difference to the lives of many broken lads and his determination to not just stand-by seems to increase exponentially, year on year.

The Medics Rugby Challenge is an annual event organised by Doc. Do take a look.

Welcome to his surprise party:

Well done Anthony! He’ll never wear the bloody thing.

Building a Team

Yesterday I shot some photos of an NGO team building exercise. They were on a scavenger hunt about east London.

Welcome to the brilliant people of youth engagement charity, Brightside.

Making a Little Movie

A month or so ago I was asked to shoot photos and video for an 18th birthday party.

It was hugely exciting and the whole process involved, from shooting to editing, was brilliant fun. I am absolutely enthralled by the collating of footage and then piecing it together as you would a jigsaw puzzle. It’s great.

The Collectors Convention

Never have I had the opportunity (nor the thought) to explore the meticulous world of collecting…

…until last month.

An underground car park found mere metres from Charing Cross tube station was our port of call – and the collectors present our subjects of the morning.

Coins, stamps, postcards and cap badges were in absolute abundance.

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:
