1. It’s always so nice to see your photos in print… and there are about 5000 of these kicking around Porthleven at the moment. Really happy how they turned out.

     
  2. Some of my selections from on board Bessie Ellen this week. I hope Dave didn’t mind me following him around too much, he was photo gold.

     
  3. Bessie Ellen is Britain’s last wooden coasting ketch still under sail. She traded during the final era of sail when these ships were an everyday sight in the small ports and harbours throughout Britain.

    Last week I was lucky enough to sail on her from Fowey to Falmouth alongside The 32 meter schooner “Tres Hombres” which has been transporting fair trade goods around the world and coming to port to deliver a barrel of 15 year old ‘New Dawn’ fine rum, distilled by Oliver and Oliver and Traded by the New Dawn Traders.

    I shot this short film clip while taking photos for The New Dawn Traders.

     
     
  4. I’ve spent hundreds on books published by Gestalten over the years, so I was pretty happy when they asked to use some of my photos in their new book ‘The Outsiders’. So happy with how they turned out and I got a little intro. (That’s not my cover image)

    Pick a copy up here.

     
  5. A couple of the photos I have in ‘The Outsiders’ book are used in the promotional video by Gestalten.

     
     
  6. I’ve just finished working on campaign assets for Porthleven Food & Music Festival. The theme of the festival this year is ‘Local Food, Global Stage’, so working with local seafood restaurant Kota Kai, I shot a dish that combines the two with a range of instruments thrown in for good measure.

     
  7. Gestalten are using one of my images on their homepage. Stoked.

     
  8. Excited about being involved in this. More to come soon…

     
  9. I’ve been sifting through albums of old negs lately and came across this series I shot years ago of an Old barber shop opposite the house I grew up in in Cornwall. I think it was my first experience of shooting someone I didn’t know.

     
  10. I spent the early part of this week working with a film crew, shooting stills for a film about retired Welsh professional boxer Joe Calzaghe and his Dad and trainer Enzo at thier gym in Wales. It’s cold and wet in the Valleys this time of the year but kept entertained by Enzo’s rellentless energy.

     
  11. I just found one of my pictures re-drawn by an Illustrator called Jess Nicholls. Looks cool Jess.

    I found this picture on tumblr recently, of a cabin in Tasmania by Tom Powell. I really love the colours and light in this kitchen, so originally I did a painting study of it for a fun personal piece. At the last minute I thought I’d stylize it a bit as well, to make it more flat and painterly than realistic, because I like that. Later when I was planning my showreel, I realised I needed a 3D environment, and remembered this kitchen. So I decided to model it and texture it, give it a camera move etc. That is still WIP, but here are the beginning steps. The top one is the stylized version in 2D, and the bottom the original photo by Tom Powell

     
  12. I shot my grandad a few times over the last 20 years and he’d always been a willing subject. Rest in peace Grandad Stan.

     
  13. I’m missing winter in Canada.

     
  14. I’ve recently returned from a year in Australia where I spent a few months over the summer there living with some awesome people in Tasmania surfing and hiking and tending small animals. Here are some shots of my time down there.

     
  15. John Fairhurst asked me to shoot some promo shots for him and his band while recording this weekend. www.johnfairhurst.com
