I was asked recently to produce a small set of self portraits. I decided to take five photographs of my morning routine.
The image above is the second photograph – you can see the whole series on my website by clicking here.
Over the last year or so I’ve taken more self portraits than ever before – Previously it was always something I tried to avoid but as I’ve grown older it’s something I’ve embraced – perhaps it is connected to fatherhood and a realization of mortality?
The above photograph was taken last month and it’s from a shoot for ‘Carnival’ with model Hollie Chekov.
We shot it in a large manor house just outside Kidderminster and I’ll be uploading the photos to my site very soon.
Speaking of which my site has undergone a dramatic change (I thought it was about time) and hopefully now the galleries and information are easier to view on all devices including iPhones and iPads.
Please take a look and let me know what you think…
Sorry about the lack of posts recently – I had a new computer arrive and as always it’s taken an age to get everything sorted…
The shot above is from a shoot last week for ‘Julia Smith Jewellery’ the model is Laura Ding. I got loads of shots from the shoot with some really cool fine art concept pieces which I’ll edit and upload very soon…
Last month I officially became a ‘Snap My Life’ ambassador. Snap My Life is really cool site for anyone to upload and share their pics. You can check out my ambassadorial profile page here.
Lots of shoots coming up and I promise I’ll try and blog on here a little more often.
Thanks very much reading. x
Had a spare couple of days this week so I’ve been scanning in (yet more) old negatives.
Found some pretty cool ones, including this one above which was taken in Woolacombe Bay, around 2002 I think.
I’ll try and post some more as I come across ones I like…
The sunset looked beautiful outside my house the other evening – so I grabbed my camera and tripod and took the photographs above – I also took a load more but haven’t really got round to editing them just yet… Busy, busy!
I’ve scanned in more ‘Polaroids’ for my ‘Expired’ project which I’ll be adding to the ‘Projects‘ section of my website very soon…
‘Legs’ is a series of images I completed a few weeks ago with the model Nicki Adam.
You can view the whole series by clicking here.
I’ve been interested in doing this project for a few years, ever since I shot ‘The Absent Murder Of The Mind’
I’ve said in previous posts that I like exploring the idea of anonymous portraits, where the face is hidden or not included. I spoke with Nicki about this, whom I’ve worked with for several years, and we decided to create this series. All of the photographs were shot in my house with very small lighting rigs.

This is a new self-portrait ‘Hidden’ which will be a part of my 2012 exhibitions.
Over the next few weeks I’ll be adding photographs, both new and never before seen, that will be displayed in the forthcoming exhibitions.
