Sorting through some old contact sheets….c1986, Pendine Sands. I think this sums up pretty much every car photoshoot I did in Wales. Art Director Nick Dixon on the left, me loading film. I also remember being accosted by the MOD Police for straying onto the beach on a red flag. They confiscated film on the grounds that my photos could have captured missiles being fired out to sea. These were sent back to us after they were processed….as the images showed nothing more than run of the mill hatchbacks in very wet sand!

Portfolio shots – abstract view of pink tulips on a white background.
From the archive, some shots of Richmond Lock and Twickenham Bridge, taken in 1997.
Printing my Thames photos taken since 1997 and presenting them in three volumes. Part of the Drawing Dark Waters project with Caroline Underwood and Liz Charsley. A few have previously appeared in exhibitions or concertina book form, but this is the first time I’ve put them all in one place. Essentially archival inkjet prints, with some as gate folds and a couple of original prints from 1997. I’ve promised to show them to a few people, and am happy to show others. The project is still evolving and will no doubt be expanded.
Fritillaria meleagris or Snakeshead fritillary. Three colour gum bichromate print on watercolour paper.
CND rally, Trafalgar Square,1980. Scanning more early work from London. Originally from a folio I was putting together to approach news agencies.
Making a few hires scans from b/w negs….oh the joy of dust specs in the sky! Forgot about these.
Some new images taken in Andalucia for the Coast of Light series, August and September 2017. Click on ‘Projects’ to see the full series.
A new book cover using one of my photographs, via Millennium Images. Published by Grove Atlantic, Mattias Boström examines the story from its origins with a young Arthur Conan Doyle, through to the TV series with Benedict Cumberbatch. The image was taken near Battersea on the Thames footpath..not sure if there’s a connection.
Some new portrait work for my friend, Aba Carboo.
