Case study coverage for Odd London's Grand Designs Live stage design for Siemens at the Excel in London.
With one of their dishwashers in the kitchen and that F1 Model my in the drive way, my life would be complete.
Brochure showroom shoot for one of the largest suppliers of fitted kitchens in the UK.
Left me feeling like I had just spent a day at the Ideal Home Exhibition.
When you turn professional, shooting for fun should never be a rarity.
Remind yourself daily.
Recent magazine fashion shoot highlighting some of the best designers London has to offer.
Covering the launch day of Studio Juice's new branding and identity for South Town Red Ale.
And the ale wasn't to bad either..
I enjoyed the challenge of art directing this project.
Maybe its another sign of things to come in the future.
On stills duty again, and I'm coming to realise that as a photographer your ultimately asked to capture key moments in peoples life's, select moments of people reaching closer to their dreams and those currently living their dreams.
And in some cases - such as the Immersion Theatre's adaptation of Shakespeare's wonderful and iconic comedy - you may find yourself being asked to capture a nightmare..
Reebok's launch of the coffee book built to biblical proportions at Footpatrol London brought the man Michael Dupouy himself, and those that refuse to sleep on culture.
All Gone 2013 is here.
This was such a seamless shoot.
That's what happens when you tour and learn with the best I guess..
I could get used to these 5 minute shoots. Im just wondering what we could have done with 30 minutes..
An interviewing masterclass witnessed. With stories told over the table for days.
Looking forward to seeing this in Breaks Mag.
Being on stills duty for this CIA flick was a great experience.
I think that Bru Productions and Dir. Jennifer Sheridan have a little gem on their hands..
A house of joy. Free of inhibitions towards life and creativity. Hearts of art, smiles hidden within a moment of a London town night.
I like his house.

Great day and a great experience working with the team on this.
And most defiantly the side of retail I prefer to be working on.
Those 'Wash your Painties' days now feel so long ago. Always take a chance when given..
The. Beats. Were. Immense!
A very intelligent performance. Looking forward to seeing and enjoying their rise.
Energy. Energy. Energy. Energy. Energy..
Seeing a vision you had once being brought to life is an overwhelming, but very enjoyable experience if done well.
Educated, invited into different authors worlds while being wittily entertained?
We served courage to the meek, highly boastful and beautiful, while they danced the night away before of us.
We humoured the chancres advances, accepted the tips from the happy and entertained those gentle conversations because we our paid too.
Only too a few did we tell our story.
We took a sip, had laugh chased by a red bull, and watched time. Reminded ourselves of our goal, reapplied the gloss, and actually allowed ourselves to find the bass we had to ignore.
We caught his eye, she caught ours, both served with a smile. She'll forget with a kiss later we're sure.
But the feeling from The Hatch will never been forgotten - Because this was our place.
See you all again soon.
I had a really good feeling about this shoot.
Coffee inspired, London street moments were found with each corner turned with ease.
Coffee maybe the future..
You don't call it work if Wookie is playing on your earth day..
Sketch is Alice's (from that well known Wonderland we all know and love) Michelin Star Dream.
Each room a pleasantly curated visual pieces of story like day dream. And like most dreams, every each one of them is different..
Protein, Cereal and a Black Cow..?
I know what your thinking and yes, it was most defiantly a deliciously prepared end of day meal.
It's amazing what a bit of sun can do for a carnival vibe.
In actuality it is a must though it was the smiles, grins and everything joyful that added to a ridiculously eventful sun bless day in Kingston-Upton-Thames.
London is slowly catching on that Notting Hill is not the only one that knows how to throw it down..
Maybe the universe is looking out for me.
I think it's time..
In the couple times that we have met I saw how his aura screams humility.
To witness a depth of calm after working on displaying such a large body of work, and have nothing but a genuine smile for every fan and friend that took time to congratulate him on his latest achievement, is something you rarely see in a world where everyone wants to have that celebrity from nothing.
Letting your work be an extension of you, and never letting it be who you are rang home tonight.
I've know about this event for over 5 years, so being invited down to cover the 'Superheros' edition in connection with Nick Makoha's 'My Father & Other Superheros' which had been showing at the Showbank Centre was a pleasure.
Being entertained, while traveling with a collective of humble personalities, viewing and taking in the hidden moments of London is an experience all must take part in.
London is never boring.
She gave us beauty. She gave us passion. She gave us love.
The next person I love, will be loved like this.
Where she was in the moment is where I've needed to be for a while.
Space with a hint of the familiar, backed with a physical warmth of words, made me feel a comfort away from home.
Home is always needed, but new experiences are what inciting stories are made from.
And with that, she told a few..
Being transported to a world that you only now know spawned the beginning of your musical education is rare.
Hints of 80s gems, mixed with the now, are what I feel these guys are about.
Looking forward to the future; always remembering the past is the foundation.
With the upgrade to there new website pending, The Chequers asked for a few pictures to capture the uniqueness of Walthamstow Markets latest local.
East London born, the feeling is warm when you can attach a job back to a memory of being dragged up and down Europes longest outdoor market.
The tone of this unique performance was set instantly with the stage having no light at first.
He allow his voice to bless the imagination of all before both a blue and red beam gave his audience - and us photographers within the pit - a soul to capture.
The immensity of this gentleman is overwhelming.
The shining example I live by that tells me that you can be a master of all your talents.
And so I keep on..
I've had this idea of what the word family actually means for a number of years now.
But a night with Eric Lau and his 'family' confirmed my hearts feelings, which now boast no more doubt.
The bench mark has raised yet again.
In between interviews, unknowingly I lead the Everything Everything lads down my school day's memory lane, as the location for their photo shoot was within a stones throw of my mecca of education.
I love shooting in the Shoreditch/Old Street area as every corner give you a different feel, vibe and the shadows hidden in the close-nit streets are always different every time you visit.
Looking forward to reading their feature in TMRW Magazine, with my photo's as an aid, all that bit more now..
Effortless. Beautiful. Pure.
I heard voices within her voice that told me everything I needed to know behind such a still personality.
Humble, she knew she was more than just a musician with happiness found in genuinely sharing life with us.
For all of this I thank you.
The reminder was that newness is always around the corner. Whether it's a metaphor for the personal or universal, newness was the feeling.
A newness of being around actual musicians with more than just a cord or three. Her smile and sound was new to me, but I know I've been there. I am there.
Just wish I had an inch of her hair..
People make promises.
I decided to apply the levels of expectation to this promise, adjusted the camera to the occasion, found a position, sourced my angel and waited.
Superlatives came to stop after her first song, and I just allowed myself to be taken where ever she told me we where going.
An age of innocents was felt within her performance.
Songs that reminded me of how pure relationships should be, were, before the complications of the prenup "factors" we add when we become "adults".
Never forgetting the young person you were will always keep the wiser you youthful.
The sun makes all the difference.
A great shoot with such a humbly excited and talented young man. And after Olly told me this was his first official photo shoot, it was only right we had fun with it!
It will be interesting to see which picture will be selected for his article in TMRW magazine.
Either way Mr Chamberlain, your future is bright..
When someones stage presence is a perfect picture, it makes capturing it that much easier.
Valentina's set for the Put Me On It show was an emotional piece of art, coupled with a soundtrack provided by her band of talent which was short of genius.
I love to be inspired.
This gentleman is a true poet.
Armed with 6 stings and a harmonica, he strummed personal stories that all related to because they, and myself, clearly were in need to hear a story that evening.
Covering the Put Me On It Live events has found me being closer to the talent that needs to be experienced by all.
After being able to capture Hello Skinny's performance for Put Me On It's christmas party I am convinced that their should be a live performance only chart - As there are certain experiences that you need to be there for, that can't just be absorbed enough your Apple Mac speakers after a click on a forwarded Soundcloud link.
Humble in there approach, with little words between sharing smiles and their sounds, Hello Skinny's set sweetened me nicely in between shots.
On this day a lot was learnt. A lot will be remembered.
I had the pleasure of videoing a very intimate studio session with internationally-acclaimed Reggae and World music artist Ben Okafor, capturing the moment in-between spiritual gasps.
The depth of peace experienced with his performance and the day's out of London travels was needed indeed.
Live music will always bring a wondering mind home.
I'm sometimes able to apply the hindsight seen, desires allow me to have dreams. But sometimes in music I am able to see into the future.
Capturing Psylus' London Jazz Festival debut was an inspired blessing, humbling in parts, that I am glad I was able to witness.
The future will be their's for sometime..
My London Jazz Festival coverage for Serious kicked of in emphatic fashion with getting as close and lost in the experience that is Robert Glasper at the Southbank Centre.
Showcasing music in one of it's finest forms is clearly the message for this festival.
Being able to capture the talent of the future at Oxfam's 'Oxjam Festival - Shoreditich' was a blessing. Was really impressed with the way the shots of Jacob Banks, Purple Ferdinand Chockz turned out.
rather than the usual, I used the event to try out the SMC Takumar 55mm lens for my Asahi Spotmatic F. I think it just became my new favourite..
Promotional shoots should not be this fun.
A great team, perfect attitudes which naturally enticed passers-by to get involved within a great project to help out their respected communities.
London, threw down a few shapes and stood up for the cause nicely.
