Fragments is a work considering what happens when looking is interrupted.
Based on the thought that the transformation from land or space to landscape happens by the act of looking and subsequently ordering the space into a view, a picture, a painting or a philosophical thought.

What lies hidden?

This is the thought behind a series of images for an ongoing body of work. Many of us face illness, trauma or inner challenges that are invisible from the outside. Explore with me the effect this has on our lives, our relationships, our ability to feel part of the rest of the world and the difficulty in communicating how and who we are. It can become a burden to be avoided, a cause for a mask or a burning need, never satisfied. The focus of the work is on communication rather than on the illness/ trauma itself. If you would like to be part of this project or know someone who would benefit from finding an artistic expression let me know via the contact box here, on my website. You can also write to me with your story.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Brighton Dance photographer 01What a privilege to spend a day with wonderful Katharine le Roux. She is launching her new website soon and we needed to produce some stunning, clean and evocative imagery for her. So we drove all the way to Alresford to shoot in the amazing White Space https://www.whitespacealresford.com/. The White Space is a fantastic dry hire space to use as a studio, event venue or workshop location and so pretty.
Here are just a few images from our shoot. Enjoy!

Rainy seaside wedding

Beautiful sunshine accompanied by the stunning azure of the sea and nicely contrasted by the white wood of the pier. A wedding on the pier: slightly rustic, nautical, incredibly summery and refreshingly northern. Seagulls, ice creams, sunglasses and champagne… you get the idea. All followed by colourful cocktails on the beach and hours of relaxing fun with family and friends. Well, that was the plan….

But what do you do when it rains on your wedding day? Not just a little bit, but rain of the cats & dogs, buckets and torrential sort. Rain of the Top Gear classification FW. Well, you get married! And then you celebrate with your loved ones. Grotty registry office, greasy spoon caf, all of that is irrelevant compared to the vows you are making and the joy that fills your hearts that moment. This is only the start. There are so many days to come, days in which love can grow, be refined and made new. Such an incredible journey. And these two lovely people embarked on it together. In the rain. In love.

Malta destination wedding photographer Castello Zamitello MgarrCongratulations Sam & Rosalie! What a wonderful wedding on the beautiful Island of Malta. I don’t even know where to begin, but I wanted to give you a quick sneak peek before I start the full edit. There were so many special moments during the week as well as on the day but nothing shone as brightly as your happiness when you quite literally tied the knot. Thank you for trusting me with capturing those special memories for you and I hope you will treasure them for many years to come.

While exploring the island I found myself fascinated with old doors and peeling off paint. I think it made me ponder the passing of time and how precious and sometimes short the time is that we have with our most beloved. It made we want to savor every moment.
