January saw us return to Grange Estate to document the start of the year with pruning the vines. A very mathmatical and physical job that will prepare the vines for the rest of the year.

We stood on the banks of this whispery watery bleached-out world, breath held, in silence apart from the sound of the shutter as this magnificent beast glided by.
A looming misty giant of a pine towering above its wooded congregation.
Well, that's it from me . . . 2016 has been a fantastic year. I've travelled to the Arctic, through Japan, across Iceland and many more towns, cities and countries along the way. Thank you to all my kind clients, both old and new for making this such a great year. It's now time to rest up, fill up on food, fine wine, family time and prepare for a wonderful 2017. See y'all in the new year!
I've recently returned from a bit of time out, as after 14 years together, myself and Jen got married! We had the most perfect day, topped off by a fantastic honeymoon. Without a decent jacket, yet armed to the teeth with cameras, we were off, travelling down in my old Land Rover to Mousehole, a small fishing village on the South East Coast of Cornwall. With plenty of time spent by an open fire, long blustery walks in terrible weather and having too much to drink in the most wonderful village pubs, I've returned to London with a spring in my step. It's time to start this old work horse up and get cracking with what's left of the year . . .
I was recently commissioned by HSBC Premier and The Telegraph to photograph Conker Spirit and their Dorset Dry Gin.
Taken the night I got stuck at Eagle Plains due to extreme snow drifts on the Dempster Highway.
A lovely two days photographing this week in Plymouth. Lovely to be out early enough to catch the sunrise across the harbour.
Zam loads the grapes ready for pressing . . .
Last weekend we embarked on a new stage to ‘The Farmer’s Year' project with a trip to a Hampshire Vineyard. A magical weekend of photographing, topped off by fine wine, BBQ’d haunch of venison and the sun on our backs to celebrate the end of harvest.

Exciting things are on the way . . . I was really pleased to be asked by Patrick Grant to help out with his latest venture 'Community Clothing'.
Community Clothing is a manufacturers cooperative with a simple mission; to make excellent quality affordable clothes for men and women, to create great jobs for skilled workers and by doing this help to restore real pride in Britain’s textile communities.
Out now . . . The new issue of Lodestars Anthology - Canada. I'm incredibly proud to be part of this magazine and the latest issue features my work from my journey north through the Yukon along the Dempster Highway and along the ice roads and up to Taktoyaktuk. An amazing trip and a once in a lifetime commission.
I'm back from Japan, for the past 8 day's I've been travelling around northern Japan, for Lodestars Anthology. An experience I shall never forget. Breathtaking landscapes, crazy cuisine and the most incredible hospitality. I'll be back . . .
Great to be commissioned by BBH London to shoot this recent Barclays Campaign.
Lovely to be back at Sheepdrove Organic Farm to document the next stage of my ongoing personal project, 'The Farmer's Year'. Thank you to everyone at Sheepdrove for being so accommodating and letting me stand in the sun and watch the harvest.
After the rain fell in the valley, along came this glorious sky. Had a wonderful weekend in the woods in Cleave, Devon.
I spent the best part of a day watching these intriguing birds dive for fish between the moving icebergs.
It's always lovely to come across frames a few months after the initial edit. This was just outside Vik, whilst trying to find a place to spend the night.
