I am not what most people would consider to be an average photographer. Armed with a selection of compact film cameras, I never leave home without one and I am always ready to capture anything that happens around me. I always have on going projects witch I am always adding weather it be my photographs of Brighton swimming club (http://goo.gl/9M8JE
), montage portraits (http://fragmentedportraits.tumblr.com/
) or Festival Wellies photos on Flickr (http://goo.gl/AX68a
In October 2008 my first solo book Hot Shots (http://goo.gl/GWPj6
) was released in the UK, it sold out its UK and US print runs in under a year. It is an instructional book for everyday people and is intended to help them sex up their photography, without being too bogged down in technical jargon. Since then I have written a 2nd book Photo Op (US title) / 52 Photographic Projects (UK title) (http://goo.gl/zomTD
). This book goes more in depth in to 52 different photo graphic techniques. I have a passion for passing on my knowledge of photography and regularly teach photography courses (http://goo.gl/GJeSI
). At the start of 2011 my 3rd book Toy Cameras (http://goo.gl/6J0Fp
) was published, this book is lists 40 different toy cameras and lists the quirks.
I have also had work published in two Lomo photographic books, one called "Spirit" and the other, "Don't Think Just Shoot." My work has also featured in a range of publications including Photo Pro Magazine, DSLR user magazine, Olympus User Magazine, Russian Esquire, Sonntagszeitung, and the BBC news website. I was a regular contributor to JPG magazine from when it first launched in 2005. In 2006 I was on the panel of judges in New York for flickr.com
's "Blink of the Eye" photo competition and judged again in 2008 for pixish.com
's "The SXSW Gallery Show" competition. I work commercially as a photographer for a range of different clients which have included Phillips, The Times, The Commonwealth Games 2002, Dr Martens, Stomp, Dell and Imogen Heap.
