River Thames footpath


Rev Richard Coles, presenter on BBC Radio Four’s Saturday Live, once described the plastic bags suspended along the roadside on his drive home as looking like “Unfortunate wraiths snagged in trees”. Sadly a common feature along the River Thames. More ‘wildling’ trees along the Thames footpath near Mortlake. A ‘wildling’ Plane tree growing out of the cobbled embankment along the River Thames between Chiswick and Kew.

Tate Modern


Nice to see Tate Modern using one of my River Thames photos for an event poster. Called Ten Days Six Nights, the event is being held between 16th and 25th March and incorporates performance, film, music and sculpture. The original photograph was taken at Mortlake, towards Kew Rail Bridge.  

What Car Magazine


From the archive – For What Car magazine, 1986. We borrowed the ‘new’ Renault Savanna from the Paris Motor Show as it closed on the first day and did night shots around the city with two other cars. Ended up doing this dawn shot as a last ditch effort to get a cover before returning the car to the show at 8am for the second day. A deadline dreamed up by someone still tucked up in bed!  The final cover and layout, from What Car? December 1986.
