Romania Project Diary - The Ebb and Flow of the Creative Process

For the duration of my ongoing work in Romania, I will be writing a series of articles for On Landscape detailing the creative process. The articles will feature behind the scenes images taken on my D-SLR/iPhone/whatever I happen to have on me at the time as well as pictures taken by the rangers. The first piece is available to view here

Please note, these articles are only available to those with a subscription to On Landscape magazine. 

These daily excursions saw us leaving the villages behind us and exploring landscapes deep within the project area. The rangers would try their luck with the 4x4 as far as possible, but for the most part, it was on foot. Trudging through tangled forests in waist deep powder, I struggled to find compositions in a confused, seemingly never-ending maze of black and white.

Doers of London - The Modern Sportsperson

For the past seven months, I've been working on a fascinating portrait commission across London. Commissioned by Do Sport, the series presents a showcase of the modern sportsperson throughout the capital. The photographs and accompanying interviews will be produced as a photobook towards the end of 2018. Many thanks to the team at DO, producer Tom Whittle and designer Anna Clark from Blunt Crayon.

I'll be sharing a selection of the portraits here on the blog over the next few weeks.


RPS Environmental Bursary

In 2017, I was awarded The Royal Photographic Society Environmental Bursary in association with The Photographic Angle - over the coming months I'll be working on a new body of work in the Carpathian Mountains, Romania documenting the formation of a new European Wilderness Reserve.

This image was made in January, on one of the first shoot days for the new series. Eyes peeled here for more updates as the work develops.
