John and Uli 31st Dec 2015 John Ellison - Peaceful Warrior

“I would like people to be able to say that I made them laugh and gave people good memories. As the saying goes « You can't do anything about the length of your life but you can do something about it's width and depth » and this is what I hope to achieve in sharing my passion for life with those around me” I first heard of John Ellison via a mutual friend. I was sitting at a table in...

Strider Horizontal 2nd Nov 2015 Bring on the Clones

  CLONE - "A person or thing regarded as an exact copy of another"   Some time ago everyone I knew had a "hooky" Rolex Submariner, you could pick them up for a $100 in Hong Kong and apart from its weight on your wrist and the movement of the second hand you could hardly tell the difference from the £2500 real thing! More recently it was the turn of Handbags. The must have "IT" bag from...

Kendal 30th Oct 2015 For one night only - Artist Foundry at the 2015 Kendal Mountain Film Festival

When the clocks go back and British summertime ends, for me winter has truly arrived! I actually prefer cold weather. Cold, not wet! Lets get that straight. I love snow and Ice, so long as they're accompanied with Blue skies and the occassional warm carress of sun on my cheek. But here in the UK that, rarely occurs. Winter months usually mean Short grey days so I have to have little beacons of...

Tagger T 3 9th Oct 2015 The Tagger TShirt

I recently shot the photos for a collaboration with SSC (Sidney Street Clothing) for what would affectionately become known as the "little Miss Tagger T's" The original photo of fitness model Ruth Marie Dales was taken here in Sheffield. We slightly changed the original image taking off the obvious "branding" from the paint manufactures can! I really like the finished design - What do you guys...

Hannah 7th Oct 2015 Pretty In Ink - B & W or Colour

I had the pleasure of having Model Hannah Middleton in the studio earlier in the week. We were shooting portraits when I noticed this amazing tattoo on Hannah's hand (she covered in tattoo's) its the nose and jaw of a skull. When Hannah raised her hand up to her face the effect was quite striking - the problem I now have is does the image work best in Colour or Black and White? What do you guys...

Skull Gasser 02 27th Sep 2015 @ 09:00 Black Snow

I had a lovely parcel in this weeks post from custom Jewelry maker Black Snow. They're based in Israel and I first saw them on the popular social media app, Instagram. I say them, its actually just one person Nati Amor. He specialises in rings, pendents and knife beads, and offers both an off the shelf as well as a custom service. The ring in the photo usually comes in silver, I asked him if he...

Medford P 19th Jul 2015 Carrying and using a knife in the UK

I've carried a pocket knife off and on for most of my adult life. My brother Richard carried the same Puma folder in his pocket for well over 25 years. For me carrying a knife is a bit of an inconvenient necessity. It wears holes in my trousers and is a little bit of extra weight I have to carry into inaccessible locations. But its more often than not in those same locations that my knife has,...

para 2 1st Jul 2015 Paracord and Beads

Paracord! I'd heard the name, but I wasn't really sure what it was. Looking at the photos it looked like a Kernmantle rope "in miniature"  I've used rope both in climbing and rigging for my photography for well over 30 years and in that time I've used just about every conceivable "Genre" of rope, so what exactly is paracord and why has it become so popular over the last couple of years and...
