The London Magazine

A recent commission for The London Magazine took me to various wonderful small independent shops around London, where I met the owners and photographed their shops for an article about the challenges independents face, with raising business rates and shoppers buying online. I sincerely hope these wonderful shops continue to thrive and keep their individual, independent charm!

NEW WAVE-Hove

My first job in January was a lovely commission from Rapacioli Studio to photograph a selection of independent businesses and the friendly folk in Hove for the property developers New Wave. Here is the newly released brochure and a few outtakes from the shoot. 

Women's March on London

On the 21 January 2017, the first day of Donald Trumps Presidency, women around the world led marches in solidarity for the protection of women and girl's rights, for tolerance, for equality, for compassion, and for the inclusion - not discrimination - of all people.

I marched and photographed the event with Action Aid UK, alongside Coronation Street actress Natalie Gumede who supports Action Aid. It was a remarkable day. 

Stella Magazine

A beautiful sunny morning shoot with journalist Elizabeth Day and her personal trainer and now close friend Delle. It was lovely to witness their closeness and it turns out having a good catch up whilst working out is a great distraction from the quad burn!

This honest feature touches on many issues around mental health, and how a new puppy has helped change Jane's outlook on life. It was great to meet and photograph Jane and Zorro and see the joy this energetic puppy has brought her.  

Solidarity with Refugees March

Tens of thousands of people gathered to march from Park Lane to Parliament Square in solidarity with refugees, London, 17th September 2016.

This September, world leaders will meet to discuss the refugee crisis at two crucial summits. Activists gathered to tell the government they are ready to support and welcome more refugees to the UK.

It now uses cheaper greener fuel made from biomass briquettes along with sawdust and cashew and macadamia nut husks.

Biomass briquettes.  Through donors, Living Earth Foundation UK provided Makomboki Tea Factory with a briquette press machine where they are able to produce their own biomass briquettes which are used to fuel their boilers. This has reduced energy tremendously and saved tens of thousands of trees from being cut down to serve this purpose.
