  1. Covet

    Earlier in the year I shot a still life project of all the things that caught my eye. You can view the whole project here and see if you agree that I would make a good magpie.

  2. Personal Project

    Leave a Comment

    It has always struck me as odd that nursery rhymes are told to children as a means to soothe and calm when the meaning behind the words tend to be sinister, eerie and often misunderstood. In this project I have revisited 5 nursery rhymes and through lighting and props have given them a malevolent feel rather than the pleasantly illustrated ones of our childhood. The full project can be viewed here:

    Ring a Ring o’ Roses – often mistaken for being about the black death the origins and meaning are unknown

    The Owl and the Pussycat – although this is a poem and not a nursery rhyme it has quite an odd feel to it despite being a poem essentially about love

    Humpty Dumpty – some people think Humpty Dumpty refers to a large cannon used during the English civil war

    Old Mother Hubbard – refers to Cardinal Thomas Wolsey who fell out of favour with King Henry VIII by not facilitating the Kings divorce from Queen Katherine of Aragon

    Three Blind Mice – mainly thought to be about the bloody execution of 3 Protestant bishops by the hands of Queen Mary I

  3. Seasonal Soup

    Here’s a couple of shots I did for the stock cube people Knorr before Christmas. The Pea soup can be eaten chilled so is perfect all year round but while the weather is still a little chilly warm up with the French Onion complete with an oversized gruyere crouton.

  4. Style

    This is my very good friend, the super talented stylist Nina Beresford. We’ve been friends for years but don’t manage to shoot together very often due to geographical locations. Here she is with one of the characters from a recent shoot we did and a shot of her I took when I was first getting into photography. Nina has a first in fashion and was able to rustle up a waistcoat for our stuffed owl in less time than it takes to say twit-ta-woo. Watch this space for the project we worked on together.

  5. Costa Christmas Campaign

    I was lucky enough this year to be asked to shoot the Costa Christmas Campaign. We had lots of festive fun shooting in the lovely July weather recreating our idea of warm and cosy Christmas time. Here are a few of the shots, see my Commissions page for more and of course drop into a Costa for a cup of something chocolatey too. With thanks to Karmarama and Art Directors Jon Iredale and Laila Milborrow.

    I’ve been busy lately working on a lovely Christmas campaign for Costa coffee but I managed to find time to make a video about baking. Watch it here:

  7. The Vegetable Patch

    Leave a Comment

    Last month I worked with the uber talented Lucy Ruth Hathaway from Hers on a lovely fruit and vegetable series. All of the ingredients had to be sliced very thinly so we could shine as much light through them as possible. We also managed to create time lapse videos which you can see here:

  8. Introducing the Costa Frostino!

    Here’s one of the shots from a great shoot I did with Costa and the lovely people at Karmarama. It was a miracle we managed to photograph anything with these delectable treats distracting us from the task at hand. Can’t wait for summer! There’s more in the Commissions section on my website.

  9. Healthy and Tasty eating

    If you’re feeling a little under the weather now that winter is nearly upon us then get some delicious nutrients into your system.  These Ramens are vegetarian and filled with fresh vegetables in a clear vegetable soup.  And the chilli kick will be sure to hold off a pesky cold.
