More Awards

The Trees for Cities campaign continues to go down a storm, receiving a gold and two silvers at this years Cream Awards.


Really pleased that my Trees for Cities campaign for Big Communications was recently awarded a Bronze and a Silver at the Fresh Awards. In the Best Photography/ Art Direction and Best Charity Ad respectively.

They are also featured in the latest issue of Luerzer's Archive Magazine.

Milky Way

Here are a couple of images shot on a recent trip to Crete. I've never seen stars like it, an awesome sight.

“The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.” 
Carl Sagan.

The Orangutans

This is a project I have recently finished called 'The Orangutans'.

Orangutans are widely found in british zoos. Although they are well looked after I always get a pang of guilt upon seeing them in this environment. 
With this series I wanted to re-imagine their surroundings, placing them in a setting that seems idealistic and slightly magical, giving the images a completely different context.

Here is a little sneak into the process of how one of them was made.

Sugar Skull

Here is a pic that didn't make the cut, created a few months back but not really feeling the end result.

Starry Seascape

Took this whilst in Cape Verde, looking out west from the coast of Boa Vista...

Made from 'stacking' 10 separate images of the same scene to help reduce noise, although its still pretty noisy. I love the milky sea in contrast to the bottom of the Milky Way!
