I have loved making photographs for a great many years.

Introducing… the Quite Delightful project

Back in September 2014, I placed an order for the the first issue of a new erotic magazine for women called Quite Frankly.

Other side of the line

When I was living in Manchester, I met lots of wonderfully creative photographers via the analogue 'mother' of Instagram - Lomography. One of those photographers is Vanessa Short who is now working on a fascinating personal project documenting the coal miners who returned to work early, breaking the 1984-1985 strike. She is looking into getting... Continue Reading →

One of the many benefits of knowing so many talented and creative people is that I get the chance to cheerlead for their exciting projects.
