This afternoon I received an advance copy of the book I shot with Katie Rushworth and Tara O’Sullivan last summer. Really pleased!
The Safari Rally with Colin McRae and the Ford Rally Team for Top Gear, February 2000. Over the Rift Valley, Kenya, all teams used helicopters as a viewing platform to instruct their drivers and warn of obstacles in their path. One of the most memorable and scary shoots. Looking back at the other helicopters was a like viewing a scene from Mash, as they zig-zagged down the valley, rising and falling as the approached power cables. Many things were learnt here. The most important was never drink copious amounts of vodka the evening before a helicopter ride.
A selection of work taken recently for the RHS at Wisley.
Revisiting part of a walk I completed 12 months ago – through Brent River Park, Hanwell.
Wasn’t sure if this was a memorial or not. Placed on a tree over the River Brent, there was nothing to suggest why these flowers were there, but it looked quite deliberate.
I have photographed the Wharncliffe Viaduct many times. Wandering around beneath the huge arches is like being in a film set. Maybe ‘Logan’s Run’ …..nature reclaiming a derelict city.
I haven’t uploaded many new images from the Coast of Light series for a while, but these are selection of recent images from walks around the town of Conil, in Andalucia this summer.
From a walk along the Grand Union Canal, Brentford.
A shoot for SAGA Magazine, Foamlea Gardens, Mortehoe in Devon. A brief visit.
From a selection of images submitted to Millennium Images yesterday. I’ve never quite worked this one out. It looks like the leftovers of a strange ritual. On Waterloo Bridge in the rush hour, with thousands of people walking by.
Not spring colour, but some infra red images from a roll taken whilst I was at college….circa 1980. They came to mind after a conversation this morning. Requiring the old E4 process, which was pretty much obsolete, even then, it was a bit of a palava to use. And expensive. But turning anything containing chlorophyll bright red, it was interesting to play with.
