Impact Magazine from D30 Labs

Tucked away on an Industrial site in Croydon is a firm making a remarkable orange putty that is protecting everyone from Motorcyclists and American Footballers to Military Personnel. D30 have produced a magazine highlighting their developments along with Content Agency Seven46.

Here are the results of a day being shown around their complex, with portraits of Sam Lowes, Moto2 rider and Ambassador for D30.

Sir Derek Jacobi

Its sad when your child grows out of things you yourself find fun or comforting. As my daughter hurtles towards her fourth Birthday, we no longer watch 'In The Night Garden' - haven't for a good while in fact, but she is very keen on her Ballet classes - no matter how chaotic they seem. So, as a thank you, I am posting this picture from 2008 of Sir Derek Jacobi at the Central School of Ballet. He looks a little bemused as the realisation dawns that he is doing my job while I bark instructions from behind the piano. 

I cannot credit the dancers unfortunately - any help would be gratefully received

London Midland for Timeout

...or is it Timeout for London Midland?

Possibly the wettest shooting day I can ever remember - but the UK's second city holds a great deal more than you are generally shown. I was trusted to capture as much as I could by Sarah Dawson and Laura Lee Davies at Timeout and the supplement was designed by true professional Patrick McNamee.

Many thanks to all the folks in Birmingham who helped us on the day - Bank, Yumm, Faculty, Sixteen, Mockingbird and the Sara Priesler Gallery.

Ably assisted by Joe Conway - who may just have dried out by now. 

Here is a selection from the shoot.


Corke Wallis Design

Head Designer Nicola Wilson at Corke Wallis orchestrated this campaign for the Education Charity, Ambition School Leadership. She got me involved, and this is the result of a chaotic but fun day in two North London schools. 

Royal Automobile Club Magazine

Recently I was very excited to provide photography for Pell Mell & Woodcote, the Royal Automobile Club’s Quarterly members’ magazine. Whatever you say about Private Members' Clubs, anywhere where the members are up in arms at the disappearance of Coronation Chicken sandwiches from the menu is okay by me.

Beautiful design by Rivington Bye

Cannon & Cannon

Amazing cured meats from Cannon & Cannon. They source the best British cured meats to sell at Borough Market and online. I was very pleased to have helped them as they get ready for the Christmas rush by shooting some of their packs for NotOnTheHighStreet. 

Our Neighbourhood

Its what you do on frosty mornings, isn't it? The new Boardwalk over the wetlands in Morden Hall Park... plus some details. Hats off to all who worked on this brilliant project.

Entebbe Rescue recounted

Noam Tamir recounts his part in the Entebbe hostage rescue mission in Jewish Renaissance Magazine. Brilliant working for old colleagues again - Editor is Rebecca Taylor and Art Direction on the rough layout by Becky Redman.

The Happy Tummy Company

Karen Collins is a Baker on a mission to help the digestion of the World!

What better than a fun shoot with a truly driven entrepreneur with healthy toast thrown in?

First Commission from ICON Magazine

I had the great  pleasure during Design Week to meet and photograph Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien, founders of and Architect Asif Khan - all for ICON magazine. Art Director,  the fantastic Anja Wohlstrom.

IKEA had a Pop Up

... So Time Out got involved.

One Step from the Beyond

Six Camden boys in the Guardian offices - stupidly I let two escape, but got this before they scarpered.

Lanzarote 2

Another collection from the alien landscapes and sculpture gardens of Teguise, Arrieta, Haria and the Bodegas of Lanzarote.


The white walls and occasional splashes of colour across Lanzarote

Time Out Cabaret Covers

From January 2011, 2 days shooting 10 Cabaret Stars in Wilton's Music Hall. David Hoyle, Dickie Beau, Dusty Limits, East End Cabaret, Le Gateau Chocolat, Jonny Woo, Kiki Kaboom, A Man To Pet, Scottee and Sarah Louise Young. I have great memories from this, mainly due to the professionalism, humour and creativity of everyone involved - As well as the main Cover shots we shot inside feature options and studio set up shots. Art Direction by Nick Booth


Small boys in the park, Jumpers for Goalposts, isn't it?

Fantastic to be involved in the Groundwork campaign to preserve space for all of us

"Just when I thought I was out...

they pull me back in......" Rekorderlig for Time Out - nice to be back.
