In particular I really love his nighttime shots which I feel do a great job of capturing the essence of the city. It gave me the inspiration to go back through my […]

Happy Halloween!

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, I’ve been busy with work and not had that many opportunities to go out with the camera. As Halloween is almost upon us I thought I’d post this recent shot which I think looks rather spooky. It’s an abandoned cottage near where I grew up that’s been empty […]

Liverpool

Since moving up north three years ago, I’ve been meaning to visit Liverpool. Finally the opportunity arose last month, so I jumped on the train with fellow photographer and Fuji enthusiast Richard Gascoigne, for the one and a half hour journey to Merseyside. I think it’s not a stretch to say modern Liverpool is most famous for The Beatles and […]

Darwin’s Seat I love this image of Darwin’s statue in the Natural History Museum in London. It’s a beautiful building, full of intricate details and flourishes. The natural light streaming in […]

Project: Leaving a Mark

I’ve been photographing street art and graffiti for several years now, where ever I come across it. From hasty scrawls to detailed artworks, abstract patterns to political messages.
