  2. Essex Chronicles

    Date 09 Sep 2016
    Earlier this year I started on a new series documenting the Essex estuary where I grew up. I hope it will be a long-term project and I intend to show how the coastline interacts with the local population, architecture, industry, leisure and nature that sits along it Traditional landscapes or seascapes are not really my…

  3. VG16

    Date 22 Jul 2016
    I set up my free ‘pop-up portrait studio’ at the Village Green festival in Southend again a couple of weeks ago. This is the second year I’ve done it and I came away with a nice little gallery of portraits. It was a fun day and to top it all…

  6. Village Green

    Date 29 Jul 2015
    A couple of weeks ago I set up a Free Portrait ‘studio’ at my local music and arts festival, Village Green, at Chalkwell Park in Southend, Essex. I’d never done anything like this before but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a long day and hard work, though, and I picked up a lot of ideas…

  7. Family portraits

    Date 19 Jun 2015
    Earlier this year I decided to set up a new venture photographing families - it’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while and is a natural extension from photographing my own daughters. So please bear me in mind if you know anyone in the south east Essex area that might…

  8. The Swap

    Date 30 Nov 2014
    This week I’m featured on The Swap, an ongoing project curated by Stuart Pilkington. The idea is simply to team up with another photographer, and take portraits of each other - being as simple or as elaborate, as literal or as abstract as you like My ‘swap’ is Kirsty Mackay,…

  9. Street portraits

    Date 07 Nov 2014
    Some random street portraits, from an Owen Harvey workshop I participated in this week, organised by arts charity IdeasTap. We spent the morning on studio portraits and the afternoon on street portraits. I asked lots of strangers to pose - half said ‘yes’ and half said ‘no’, so it was…

  10. New blog

    Date 23 Oct 2014
    This is my new blog, which I’ve decided to start after past failed flirtations with the likes of Flickr and Tumblr. I’ll use it for occasional news and bits and pieces – nothing too profound, though – starting with this little gallery of archive images that didn’t make it to…
