World Class Gelato
September 1st 2022
Oooo, this is exciting!
A few days ago The Financial Times published an article listing the world's best ice cream stores and Gelato Village, who I've had the joy of working with were named!
Antonio and Daniele run their business in the centre of Leicester and create some of the finest, wholesome gelato you can find. 

1,346 miles
March 5th 2022
On the 10th day since Vladimir Putin ordered the invasion of Ukraine and in Melton Mowbray the Polish community has organised the beginnings of a relief effort which will see vital supplies being donated, sorted and shipped to Poland and the Ukrainian border.
A communal effort from the small town, which responded rapidly has grown as people here seek to do what they can for a country being torn apart 1,345 miles away.

New Year News
January 17th 2022
It's the October half term and I'm in Wales, perched on a rickety chair in a spare room of the cottage my family and I are staying at. I'm on a Zoom call attending the Association of Photographers AGM, and I'm about to find out if I've been voted onto the Board as a Member Director...
Melton Mowbray's Foodbank
It is disconcerting that we are entering another Christmas of the pandemic and I hope you have been well and stay well over the holiday.

Rather than posting Christmas cards to quite possibly empty offices and studios, I have instead made a donation to the foodbank that serves my town. They are called Storehouse and have been doing incredible work before and throughout the pandemic, to help individuals and families in my area cope with an already difficult economic landscape.

To those of you who have commissioned me during this year, thank you so much for your trust and support, it has been immensely appreciated. And thank you too to those of you who have offered your help and encouragement during 2021, it has and continues to mean a lot.

Wishing you all a restful Christmas and peaceful New Year.

Graduate Portfolio Photography
School of Art & Design, Nottingham Trent University
On the 20th anniversary of graduating from the Photography course at NTU and in a beautiful twist I was commissioned along with a fellow alumni, David Baird, to film and photograph the graduating Art & Design students work for their portfolios.
With the absence of in-person  Degree Shows the school had decided to offer their final year students an opportunity to have their work professionally photographed and filmed for their portfolios and as a resource for promoting themselves.
To also support the BA Photography course several 2nd and 3rd year students were given the opportunity to work as paid assistants throughout the shoot, learning the workflows and practices involved in producing a large scale, high volume shoot and gaining valuable industry experience at the same time.
Save British Farming
October 29th 2020
The signs that greet drivers upon entering the Borough of Melton proclaim it to be the 'Rural Capital for Food'.
You'll probably of heard of the Pork Pies and Stilton cheese. In fact its livestock market is one of the oldest in the country and is a hub for surrounding agricultural community.
Back in October 2020 farmers from in and around the borough met to protest against the UK Government's stance on the legal safeguards for agriculture and food standards in future trade deals.⁠
The concerns were multifaceted ranging from the potential for substandard imports into the UK market to the financial and environmental implications of competing against lower quality production from abroad.⁠..
After the Storm
Images of Lockdown in 2020
It's April 16th 2020 and the first lockdown begins in the United Kingdom. Life abruptly halted and busy streets in our country became silent. 
Like many photographers whose primary work involved people and locations, the diary became similarly deserted. 
So, whilst taking regular exercise I took the opportunity to document my location and how our national response to the global pandemic played out around me.
Association of Photographers
I was interviewed by the Association of Photographers in March 2020 about my professional career and current work as part of their series of FOCUS articles.

First Hundred Days
"What are you hoping for?"
A series of conversations and portraits with one person for each of the first hundred days of Boris Johnson's 2019 Conservative government, asking the question, "What are you hoping for?"
Following the polarised division that erupted...

I was interviewed by Creativepool back in May 2020 for a Member Spotlight article in magazine. 
They were very kind.
Its a 5 minute read and covers a younger me wanting to be a GP, dancing in the studio, the dangers of comparison and being an introvert in lockdown.
There are some pictures too!

Following the journey two brothers take in running a working dairy farm in rural Leicestershire to its gradual closure and final sale.
