2018 to 2019

2018 has come to an end and it’s time to look forward to the new year and the exciting prospects that lie ahead. 

This year will see the publication of my first book, ‘Urban Photography’, which will go on sale in May. The book is a practical guide to photography in the urban environment, predominantly featuring my photographs. It also looks at how some of the masters of photography approach the city. You can pre order it through the shop on this site, or via any good book stores.

I’ve made a change to my working pattern in 2019, in order to take a step forward with my freelance photography. I’m looking forward to having more time to focus on commissions as well as developing some personal projects.

The following are a selection of my favourite photographs from 2018, which include my home city, Birmingham, as well as a few European destinations. It was a great year for me, with the highlight being recognition of my astrophotography in the Astronomy Photo of they Year awards. My shot, ‘Belly Button’, made the shortlist in the ‘Our Moon’ category and got a feature in the annual book.

2017 in Review

2017 is coming to an end, so it seems like a good time to share a few of my favourite shots from the year. I’d also like to express my gratitude for all the support and kind words over the past 12 months, thank you all. 

It’s been an amazing year for me personally and professionally. Early in the year I got the news that I had received the Sony award, which has bought an amazing amount of exposure worldwide. My winning photo has now been exhibited in London, Paris and Berlin, featured by major international press organisations, and published in numerous magazines & journals. It has been humbling to see the impact of something I never considered would go so far.

My personal life has been changed by recently welcoming our baby boy to the world, along with our house move to the suburbs. There maybe won’t be so many Birmingham city centre shots to come, but it will be a good opportunity for me to try out some new locations and photographic techniques. 

2018 won't be able to live up to this year, but I have got some exciting projects in the pipeline, and I’m looking forward to sharing something special with you next summer!
