I always find it interesting that when I’m walking around with a camera someone always asks me to take their photograph. I like this, you get to capture real people. One day I may compile a book of all of these images but for now here’s this one. It was taken in Stockport, on a beautifully sunny day as I took photographs for Now Then Magazine.
Here’s a poster I did for the super fun events company Hush Up, just wish I was in Hong Kong to go to it!
I very much enjoyed a trip around the Imperial War Museum this week with Private White V.C.

Glitter jazz times you beauties
Today I have a new space to do my work in. The man that used it before was a train driver and used it to build models in. The outside looks like a train carriage and inside he made it to suit all of his needs. There’s even a pulley system that means the door at the end can be closed when he’s sat in his chair. There are all sorts of hooks and shelves in here that he must have used for his tools, what an amazing space to work in, I feel inspired already.

With many thanks to Hannah, Kat and Zoë.
Taken last year, this #flower makes me think of a #spine.
This week I did a shoot for NeoMam Studios and Infographic Design Agency in the Fred Aldous photostudio. Each person was asked to bring along a prop of their choice and I thought that was a really nice idea. It was lovely to meet everyone and to see what they had brought. What prop would you bring? I think I would take my kaleidoscope.
Here’s an installation I made in our old house using Now Then Magazines and Sam Buckley. Each magazine has been attached to nylon wire, page by page and then attached in various places to the wall. It took a long time to set up but really love this shot.
I had the pleasure of being a part of Nicho Nativity this Christmas, a Cornerhouse Micro Commision with Bren O’Callaghan, Natalie Dawson and Bryony Jackson. Massive thanks goes to Bren for my inclusion and for all of his work with the project.
We did a photo shoot of ‘Mary and Joseph’ in the Fred Aldous Studios which was then printed onto vinyl and stuck to a 5 foot board. Local handmade paper flowers were made by Pink & Green which was then attached to the large portraits.
I had the pleasure of making a Ojo de Dios which I found really meditative as I weaved the different materials onto the wooden sticks.
