This is the former little chef site where Paul Graham made this image from his A1 series. The Little Chef itself has been demolished within the last few years and the petrol station forecourt enlarged so it's not possible to re-photograph the view which is slightly disappointing in the context of my current photo project.
At the end of July I travelled to Slovenia with my wife, who is working on a photo/video project around her father's escape from post-war Yugoslavia. We walked from just north of Ljubljana to just over the Austrian border over three days, in honour of the walk that he made. We were joined by Tina's… Continue reading Austria

The while space is clad with a translucent panel which gives a lovely airy feel to the space which I tried to capture. The images were taken on a Sony A7r, and using a second… Continue reading Work
My wife and I have an affinity for Piers due to our work with Hastings Pier trust. Last weekend, we visited Clevedon Pier on the way to the southwest. It's absolutely lovely and no surprise that it's the UK's only Grade I listed pier. Just a few snaps from there...
My wife and I visited the South-West of England over the weekend past and one of the places we took in, albeit far too briefly was Wells Cathedral. As a student of architectural photography I was only too aware that one of the most famous early 20th century architectural photographs - 'A Sea of Steps' was… Continue reading A Sea of Steps
Some shots of Madness at the launch event for Hastings Pier last Saturday... All taken with a Canon Eos 5D. What a pleasure to be able to focus properly in low light in a way that my A7r just isn't capable of .
