Always nice when the client is so pleased with the campaign you shot for them they send you some images of it up in situ. These are some of the European posters I shot for Naked not so long ago up in Ireland, seems like they bought every media space available.

Great to see mine and Nick Ballon‘s project El Alto up and gracing the walls of WCRS.
Very happy to see the project I shot with Nick Ballon ‘El Alto’ has a lovely spread in this years Creative Review Photography Annual. There is some great work in the book and it’s well worth checking out. See the set of images on my site.
We have just finished shooting the latest UK and European ad for Naked, the super healthy fruit smoothie. Plenty to shoot but strangely not many left afterwards. Watch out for the ad coming to a European country near you soon.

Who wants one? Special deliveries going out to those who are lucky enough………..
A treat to myself, a signed 1st edition of Stephen Shores latest book, ‘Survivors in Ukraine’. Although not a direct influence on my work I admire and adore his sense of freedom and wonder in the most banal everyday items, this book is full of stunning portraits and still lives and has a very strong message to us all with in those images.
My iphone glitch obsession continues.
Out to lunch for steaks at Smiths in Spitalfields to celebrate completing shooting a Christmas campaign for one of Britain’s largest Supermarkets.
I have just finished shoting again for the excellent “there’s a beer for that” campaign. This time a group shot of beers and ales, helped by the rather good drinks master Pete Saunders, here he is creating the perfect Old Tom ale.

I was recently asked to contribute to an article on humour in photography for the German magazine Page, no idea what it says as I have not read or spoken German since school, sure it’s all good though.
