This shoot was very much preparation for what I hoped would be a great collaboration with another model. Unfortunately that model has had to cancel our shoot for health reasons. But Justine and I still had a blast!

I was invited to help BirdLife Malta at the British Bird Watching Fair 2011. I wandered around Rutland Water during my “down time” and took some nature photographs.

I hadn't seen Kadia in over a year, and having a day down south at my disposal we arranged to meet up. A short visit to a nature reserve near Ware was part of the day's catching up.

The idea is simple: bring your face, bring a camera, bring a friend... we're here to make new profile pictures!

Fans of photography — behind the lens or in front — are invited to come along and meet people, take pictures, and hopefully end up with some fantastic new portraits. Who cares if your Facebook profile picture is awesome already? This is your chance to get another! And you also get to practice taking photographs of people, become a bit less shy about having your picture taken, make new friends, and generally just have a laugh.

So grab your camera, hair brush and mirror and let's see what bonkers creative portraits we can come up with!


  • Sackville Gardens
  • Bridgewater Canal
  • First Street

Full set.

I decided to push my photographer self a little further and do something a bit more conventional (or unconventional for me): a “fashion” shoot.

Third batch of expired film from 2004. Llangrannog, portraits, and the most hipster photography I've ever taken.

Put your iPhone fauxlaroid apps away. Step away from Instagram. This is how it's meant to be done.

More expired film from 2004. This must have been just after the return from Ireland.

I'm currently emptying my fridge of expired and exposed films. Towards the end of the week I sent nine such films for developing and scanning (on the cheap) and this is one of them that came back.

It's always a little strange coming across pictures from the past that you've not seen before. It's also a bit strange when you find photographs of someone you lived with and loved for many years. What surprised me most, however, was the fact that I shot some portraits and didn't remember it!

Back in 2004 a group of us (led by Mark, the promoter of Infest) tried starting a club and gig night in Manchester aimed at the hard industrial and noise music genres. Unfortunately our venue, Sound Garden, closed a few days before our third event leaving us completely in the lurch. It was about six years before the venue opened again.
