  • Pigeons, Salvador, Bahia, 2002

    from the series 'Brazil'

    April 2013

    Someone once remarked that to get a good pigeon shot is a sign of being a good photographer. Presumably this is because the subject matter is quite boring so it takes a degree of skill in order to create something more interesting. I originally went to Brazil to try and document the beach culture in Rio de Janeiro but somehow I found myself gravitating towards the north of the country where I stayed for about six weeks. I still prefer the pigeon shot I took in Rio but this one seemed to become more popular on flickr.

  • Cardiff Castle, 1994

    from the series 'Happenstance'

    March 2013

    If I had to choose one picture I took that steered me towards street photography it would be this one. At the time I was studying at Newport and started to take day trips to Cardiff to look for different things to shoot. I was just making my way back when I spotted the peacock and stopped just for a casual shot. Then the guard came out and started a conversation with it, so I took a couple more. The picture didn’t fit in with any of the briefs we were given, except loosely perhaps the relationship one and it convinced me that I no longer needed to seek out dramatic subject matter in order to make good photography.

  • Preacher, Piccadilly Line, London, 1995

    from the series 'Underground'

    February 2013

    The London Underground has for a long time been a staple subject matter for many photographers. So when I was given a brief to photograph a project from a subjective perspective, I thought I’d approach it with colour film and flash as almost everything else I’d seen before was done in black and white. The main problem I encountered was the fact that once I took a shot I revealed my presence to everyone on the carriage and there was no means for me to move so I usually just took one picture and moved on. This situation was different however as it was the preacher who was drawing all the attention to himself. I managed to fire off two shots, the first made him face towards me and the second (this one) was of him trying to shield his identity from me.
