exhibit this..

Sitting back on my laurels for the first time in a while watching a bit of tv.. I've been super busy as of late but with my pictures finally hung on a wall in Bristol I can relax..for a moment.

I started the week seeing my photographs on a wall in north London for the Times and Canon where it emerged that the Times passed up having me work for them for the second year in a row. Matt Lloyd from north news was named for the job at the Times - see his entry and a group photo on the piss here.. Alternatively you can see my entry here on this blog and I will put my final photographs and an audio slideshow from the Weston beach race up here in the next day or so...

Just a reminder if you are in Bristol this week come down to the Centrespace gallery off of Corn Street and take a look at some of my photographs. My work focuses on Bristol's Gloucester road and the things that people don't see everyday. It has been really interesting and difficult to photograph but looks great on the wall. There are some other exhibits on the walls in centrespace all to do with Bristol and some great portraits by the lovely boo.. anyway don't be shy - it's free - see you there..

canon, tabasco and the times..

If you are around in London over the next few days head down to the Canon Pro Photo Solutions at the Business Design Centre - Islington. It's free if you pre register at the link above.. There are some talks from pro's the inevitable launch of a camera that can see more than you can actually see and probably doesn't require you anymore and they will announce the winner of The Times Young Photographer..


Bristol was at the mercy of the worlds media the other day when Southmead a small area in the South West News area of town was featured on the BBCs Panorama show. It wasn't entirely positive..

Undercover reporters on the primetime show were subject to a racist attacks and abuse on the estate which led to a fair amount of media coverage for a small and ignored part of the city. I went down and shot it for a Dubai based paper which is definitely a new one on me when asked who I am working for by the locals. See the fallout from the story here at

One step closer to the Tabasco kid. The final results for the Times Young Photographer get announced next week at the Canon Pro Photo Solutions expo at the business design centre in London. I've been shortlisted along with five others and a nail biting who wants to be a millionaire esque showdown will be our fate next week.

speed update..

headed to the weston beach race this weekend which was sandy. very sandy. it was busy and tiring but i met some really nice people and took some great photographs. I will put together a selection soon on the site. but for now..

in other news i have been shortlisted for the times young photographer of the year this year. yes i am still young enough. it has been running for a number of years now, basically the times newspaper offer one photographer a six month contract with them to the best young photographer in the country. it's a great oppourtunity and so i am going to get my head down and do a bit of revision..
