Well it’s been a while since my last post – regrettably.
Anyway, I am back on.
Each and every year I mosey on down to Notting Hill carnival with a fine group of friends. It’s great and this year was no exception – and the sky remained blue!
Happy, very happy indeed.
I consider this my first ‘proper’ magazine cutting. The Weekender is a Kent focused freemium that looks at lifestyle, food and culture. This is the first issue, and I certainly hope it continues to develop. I love this work.
These pages are ‘rough’ and haven’t yet incorporated print-ready photos, but you get the gist.
I must also thank two very important people, for without their expertise and guidance, I just wouldn’t have had the experience necessary to shoot a piece like this. So many thanks Xenia and Edward!
Welcome to a sun-filled Sunday and bicycles. Yesterday saw Festival of the Bicycle play out on Mabley Green, Homerton. It was a great and eventful afternoon of racing, posing and entrepreneurial excitement.
I am particularly fond of this area. Having spent a super two years here, it was good to be back.
Oh, and I am now horrifically rose-red and my face feels a little warm.
Shooting for the website, I traipsed miles and miles of well-paved, cleaned and pristine streets, parks and gardens. What struck me more than the actual properties, was the abundance of beautiful floral arrangements. On each-and-every street, at least one household paid tribute to summer’s fantastic flora.
The assignment was divided over three long days. On the third day, I was sent to a house in Fulham. It was under construction and my job was to shoot the builders and close-ups of tools. I preferred this to the monotony – and slight shame – of photographing the houses of anonymous others. At least there was a degree of communication between myself and the subject. A love of mine.
