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.
Some recent photos from the River Thames series.
From two rolls of 35mm Kodak Tri X shot in 1985. More reference shots whilst searching for a car location in the City, near the Museum of London. This street, Little Britain, was boarded up, ready for demolition. I can’t remember why, but the location was never used in the end.
One of those moments when you’re sitting around the office wondering how to illustrate a tame article about car lights, when someone says, “I know….”. Probably from 1986. We tried to do this in Notting Hill, but were accosted twice by drug dealers, and got spooked. So we ended up in Bermondsey, where a local resident called the police, thinking we were shooting something a bit more hardcore. When they arrived it was quite obvious they weren’t there to ask us to move…they wanted to watch. And were sadly disappointed!
Searching for some London shots, I came across this today. Taken I think for Classic and Sportscar in 1985-6. Little caption info is included with the image, but a quick search leads me to believe it is an Amphicar 770, built between 1961 and 1968. Happy to be corrected! Taken in Twickenham by one of the ramps adjacent to Eel Pie Island.
More test shots: A selection of images from a walk yesterday between Walton Rowing Club and Hampton Court Bridge.
