Undoubtedly, the highlight of my photographic career so far was the opportunity to photograph, meet and spend time with Nelson Mandela while on assignment in South Africa; arguably the most inspirational, charismatic and compassionate icon of our times. In fact, meeting Madiba is arguably one of the greatest moments of my life to date.
I was very excited to see the results of my studio session with Andy Murray recently published on the front cover of Wentworth’s Club magazine. I’ve also included below a couple of other shots from the day with the shoot taking place just a week after Andy had won the US Open after beating Novak Djokovic in an epic final. Here’s hoping he can repeat the feat this week at the ATP Master’s tennis series at the O2 in London.
Over the course of the past few years I have been working on a global commission for a large golfing publication photographing some of the world’s most prestigious golf courses for a feature called “One Course Meal”. Read More
Recently, I’ve been running a studio shooting a selection of images for Moss Bros, one of the biggest and well known suppliers of suits and formal wear in the UK.
Home to some of the world’s oldest trees, dating back over 2000 years, the Redwood Forests really need to be seen to be believed. The size and beauty of these majestic trees spread across Northern California are a photographer’s dream.
On my recent trip to New York, I was recommended by a friend who knows I’m a fan of urban art to take the subway out to Long Island City to check out 5Ptz. The 200,000 square foot complex consists of a graffiti covered warehouse, adjacent garages and railway lines and is widely regarded as the global epicentre of the aerosol-based art.
I recently decided to take some time off commercial shooting and traveled to Northern Norway to photograph the Northern Lights. After extensive research, I decided to base myself out of Tromso. This small university town sits about 300 miles inside the Arctic Circle, is appropriately cold (about -17 degrees Celsius!) and has a healthy reputation as one of the world’s best places to see the Aurora Borealis; a natural phenomenon caused by the collision of solar charged particles and atoms when entering the earths atmosphere and magnetic fields.
I recently was commissioned to go on board the HMS Diamond for the Royal Navy and Aston Martin to photograph a story to be published in both Octane Magazine and The Daily Telegraph. The published results are shown after the break.
The Olympic Stadium hosted some of the most memorable moments of the London 2012 Olympics: Usain Bolt retaining his 100m and 200m sprint titles; Jessica Ennis’ magnificent heptathlon triumph: David Rudisha sensational world record breaking 800m and of course Mo Farah’s triumph in both the 5,000 and 10,000m. Throughout my work with various Olympic sponsors, I was fortunate enough to witness many of these events.
