I have recently noticed that when I am photographing, my camera instinctively turns to a vertical position. I am not sure why this subconscious act is. Perhaps when shooting landscapes it allows large amounts of foreground and background or perhaps the camera feels more comfortable in my hand in this way, however I do this a lot. As a portrait photographer, you would think this is a good trait to have, however the reality is, modern portraiture is not necessarily good in a vertical format. Most people have a horizontal space on their wall they want to fill, so trying to correct my vertical inclinations on a daily basis is sometimes difficult.
Anyway, here are a few vertical landscapes from my honeymoon in Mauritius a week ago.



So, I'm currently winning the Little Face of Venture competition with this image, however with 3 days left until voting ends, I can do with as many votes as possible.

There are loads of nationalities represented at ECC Norwich, so they held an International Evening to learn more about each-others cultures, cuisines and attire.

Josh Bunce Music

Ok so at midnight you are able to download the brand new single from Josh Bunce.

His Second album is due for release later this summer and we have collaborated together for the last few months to fine tune artwork for the album and single release.
Josh's music is amazing and I challenge you to at least download the single to get a taste of what the album will be like!


New Lucozade Advert

I just saw this advert on tv and had to watch it again.
I love the filmography, the music, the skating, the everything.


Pointless call

Sunday 8th May 00:03am.
So, one quick phone call to the police and the music from next-door has stopped. Unfortunately it was not my phone call that did the job; because aparently they 'don't have the power to deal with loud music from a private property'! In fact what made the music stop was a couple of taxis to take my friendly neighbours into the city so they could spend my tax money (their student loans) on overpriced vodka and cheap women.



I was just browsing the web...as you do, when I stumbled upon this.
I love the typography, and the illustration,...well and everything.

As you may know, I am currently working as a Venture photographer in Norwich. You probably don't know that Venture is currently running a nationwide competition to find the little face of venture.
This is not only one of my favorite shots submitted to the competition, but also one of my favorite shots taken recently. Please click on the photo and follow the link to the website and vote. The more votes, the more likely I am to win!!


Some of you may have seen this already, but here is the invite to the wedding of myself and Jem. Inspired by Roy Lichtenstein, we recreated "the kiss".
The physical invited will be photographed at a later stage with the other stationary.



For the last year, my father has been the proud owner of a BMW z4 3.0 si. When he originally purchased it, he was actually after a slightly larger car. Now he has that slightly larger car, he is selling the z4.
In order to sell it, he has asked me to photograph it. So this is what I've done. If you're interested in buying it, please ask and I can send you more details.


Cornish chains

Seeing as St.Ives is a small fishing village, there are a lot of boats, rope and chains laying on the beach, in the harbor and generally everywhere you go. Here is a selection of chains I found while in there.

winter, blue skies and sand

After 2 or 3 weeks I've decided to pull my finder out and put up some more photos from my stag-weekend in St.Ives. This small selection is from an afternoon spent on the beach. As you can see, despite being there in March it was bright and sunny.



I am currently working on a project with musician extraordinaire Josh Bunce. With the forthcoming release of his second album, I have been collaborating to create album artwork and other promotional stationary. If you haven't heard what this guy sounds like you're missing out.
This album is going to be MASSIVE!!
Check out his blog soundofyoursummer for updates and news on the album


Odyssey BMX is one of the worlds most well known BMX brands. They have been producing high quality BMX components for years, many of which I had on my bike for a long time.
However I am not here to talk about BMX parts, but the media that comes with the BMX industry. For years companies have been producing Videos, DVDs and web movies of clips from their team riding to promote their brand, their products and their team. When I rode BMX I was only really interested in the videos due to the tricks the riders were doing, however now as a photographer and designer, I watch them for their photographic merits instead. A few years ago, Odyssey BMX released their movie "electronical" which was a worldwide success, not only to its BMX merits, but that of the photographers also. Please enjoy this trailer.


don't you just love it when...

Don't you just love it when you stumble upon something you like.

96 green (and otherwise assorted) bottles (and jars)

Soon after moving to Norwich, we had our glass recycling box stolen one morning when we put it out to be emptied. Rather than paying the council the ridiculous amount they want for a replacement bin, my housemate Pete and myself have decided to simply keep all empty glass bottles and jars: we have a couple of lines of them along the fence outside our back door.
It is interesting to see how quickly the clean rinsed out Nuttella jars soon fill with scum and grime and water along with the Martini bottles and other mixes of miscellaneous glass packaging. Please enjoy this small series of images taken to honor this collection.

Breaking Tradition

If i were to ask you to picture a church you would probably think of a traditional stone building with a tower and a bell.
Inside you would picture hard, wooden pews and a vicar/priest at the front wearing a long gown, chanting with incense and candles.
Now I'm not here to badmouth those churches at all, more to show you the possibilities of what church can be. For the last 6 months I've been attending Eternity Norwich s a vibrant and contemporary church of all ages and nationalities on the western fringes of Norwich.
This is far from a traditional stone church with chanting priest.
This is God inspired.
This is life filled.
This is exciting.
This is musical.
This is powerful.
This is meaningful.
This is educational.
This is Biblical.



Federal BMX- Bruce Crisman

This is another video that kept inspiring me when riding BMX.
Even though I no longer ride BMX, I still love watching these videos.

Bruce Crisman-Fakie Hop

This video by Federal BMX has been a one I have watched repetitively over the last two years.
It amazes me every time I watch it. Bruce Crisman revolutionised the freecoaster hub and inspired me to ride one; So I did.
Unfortunately I only rode this hub for about 5 months until one final BMX related injury prompted me to stop riding. Throughout that 5 months I fell in love with free-coasting and this video kept prompting me to ride faster, harder but most importantly backwards.



"If you’re not already familiar with S M Lockridge’s My King – then you should be!"

I first saw this video a year or two ago and have since seen it a few times at various places.
It is rare to find a piece of design that communicates this message so powerfully.
Do you know him?

over a thousand views

I just noticed the counter on my blog was saying 1006 and would like to say thank you to all of you who look at the stuff I put on here. This year I aim to blog more about things I have found as opposed to only using this as a creative outlet to show the world my own creations.
Stay tuned folks...
