Star & Tom

Back in April I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Star and Tom at the amazing West Mill in Derby. They were such a great couple to shoot for alongside Rosie Kelly of Rosie Kelly Photography. I kicked off the day covering the groom, his brother the best man, and the father of the groom getting ready at the Old Cheese Factory in Belper, before heading off to the main venue to cover the rest of the day with Rosie who was with the bridal party that morning. 

West Mill is an amazing old industrial venue with beautiful light, which coupled with the thoughtful details that the couple had included in their decorations, made for an incredible location for a wedding! I loved everything about this wedding, from the custom newspaper titled The O’Donnell Times, to the blue and white bone china which they had collected for the day. The whole event had a really stylish yet family feeling to it. 

Check out some of my favourite shots from the day below.

This week in street - half year review

This week marks the half way point in my street photography journal project this year which goes under the title of “This Week in Street”. Every week for the last 6 months I have endeavoured to get out on the streets of Birmingham as much as possible to try to capture everyday life in the city on a weekly basis. The start of this project also marked a return to colour photography for me, after a year of focusing on content and composition by limiting myself to black and white photography only. Throughout the course of the first 6 months of this project I have further developed my tastes in relation to the particular the kind of light I like to shoot in, how colours play together in my images, and the kind of content I look for. It has been hard to stay focussed on the project with commercial work taking a lot of my time, my current solo exhibition with The REP - PRODUCTION - also taking a lot of time, and of course the unpredictability of weather in the UK. However, despite the challenges for the first 6 months of the project I have managed to build a good collection of images that have a consistent feel and look to them. Below are 26 of my favourite images from the first 6 months of the project.

Thank you for supporting me in this endeavour over the last 6 months!

Junction Project

I don’t ever take images of street art really, as is clear from my current and previous work. I have never really been attracted to it as a subject matter for my own photography if I am honest. However, when I met with Tracey Thorne from Ghost Streets and heard about her upcoming Junction Project I knew it was something I would have to turn my hand to. The project is focused on documenting street art on display along a section of canal in Digbeth, running from East Side to the Camp Hill locks. Over a two week period I made multiple visits to this stretch of canal in an effort to document the area and its art in as original a way as I could. Using my Leica M6 with Zeiss 35mm lens, Kodak Portra 400 and Ultramax 35mm film, I focused on the interplay of the artwork with the urban space, nature, and life in the area. Below is a selection of images from the 4 rolls of film that I shot for the project. For more information please visit here.
