  • Smoker, Canary Wharf, 1995

    from the series 'No Smoking'

    December 2013

    The ‘No Smoking’ series was the first project I shot after ‘Underground’ but for some reason it didn’t prove to be as successful from a personal point of view. From the beginning I was using flash, as in this picture but somehow I wasn’t very good technically at using it in mixed environments and I felt the subject matter didn’t lend itself to anything more than a dozen or so shots. I pretty much gave up after a few weeks but have returned to the subject in more recent years especially since the ban in England took effect since 2007.

  • England Rugby Team Victory Parade, London, 2003

    from the series 'Up West'

    November 2013

    Wow, it’s already ten years since Jonny Wilkinson famously drop kicked that spectacular goal against Australia to bring home the Webb Ellis Cup. The following fanfare of the victory parade through central London was well deserved as was the cricket team who brought home the Ashes two years later. It was a great atmosphere that day with thousands of people lining the streets but it was also very difficult to move and see anything different. Then along Haymarket I came across this group of local school children who had been given some time off but with all the waiting around to catch a minutes glimpse of the England team it looked like they preferred to be back at school. Sadly I can’t see our footy boys bringing home any major championship any time soon.

  • Spanish Horse Show, Broadgate, City of London, 1995

    from the series 'Happenstance'

    October 2013

    There is currently a great exhibition of Tony Ray-Jones on at The Science Museum in London and he has been a big influence on me from an early period. So when wandering around the City, I came across the back end of this horse that was part of a Spanish show, I just couldn’t resist echoing the key element of one his more famous shots taken on Derby Day, Epsom in 1967. I think Tony’s one is better as it has a dog in it but I rarely see any dogs being walked around the City so I don’t think I’d have been lucky enough to get one had I waited there all day.

  • Leyton, London, 2011

    from the series 'To The 7 Boroughs'

    Autumn 2013

    I never thought I’d see the day when I’d come across something decent to photograph on my way to the local supermarket and until I got my little Fuji X100, I found it too much hassle to constantly lug a big DSLR camera around everywhere just in case something amazing happens. On this occasion however I was lucky. A number of people have commented how strange it is that the bench has been placed in an odd position facing the wall. I know why it was like that but it would probably take away part of the enjoyment of the picture of trying to figure out why.

  • Whitechapel, London, 2010

    from the series 'Car Trouble'

    September 2013

    It is nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of central London every now and again but for someone who has been somewhat spoiled by an abundance of subject matter there, it can be quite difficult to adjust your visual thinking when wandering around more residential parts of London, especially when people don’t expect to see people wandering around with cameras. For someone who was bought up in East London, albeit around Waltham Forest I am not that familiar with Tower Hamlets, the London borough made famous by the likes of Jack the Ripper and the Krays. A lot has changed in Whitechapel since those days though and it can be difficult  to find anything there that’s really quite as dramatic.

  • Marble Arch Subway, London, 2008

    from the series 'Up West'

    August 2013

    I’m not one to usually hang around anywhere for any particular length of time to get a picture but when a friend of mine fell ill in Hyde Park and had to go to the nearest toilet, I could do nothing but wait outside and hope that she’d be okay. After a couple of minutes I decided to make use of my time and started shooting random stuff when all of a sudden this boy started playing keepie uppie in the corner. I immediately saw the potential but had to work the scene for quite a number of frames as there were so many people wandering past the frame. I never noticed the broken security camera in the background with the stencilled graffitti “What Are You Looking At” attributed to Banksy, so I was very thankful for my friends misfortune at that particular moment in time.

  • Barry Island, South Wales, 1994

    from the series 'Early Colour'

    July 2013

    To celebrate Britain’s balmy summer I’m offering up this seaside classic. Barry Island became famous for its Butlins holiday camp which was a great little place for locals and tourists to spend their sunny weekends at the 1960′s designed resort with its constant entertainment, local radio show and outdoor swimming pools. Problems however with the chalets flat roofs and a subsequent storm caused the company to have severe maintenance problems and sadly it was closed down just a couple of years after this picture was taken. The space was later demolished and converted into a housing development.

  • Whitehall, London, 2009

    from the series 'Up West'

    June 2013

    Every year thousands of people line the streets of London to cheer on the brave souls who run the 26.2 miles that is the London Marathon. I used to attend events like these on a fairly regular basis but I tended to find you got the same sort of pictures happening like of people trying to clamber onto something in order to obtain a better view. So it was with some surprise that I came across this unusual scene of hundreds of balloons being stored outside a building with this man coming to the door to keep guard of them.

  • 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.

  • Happenstance

    Black and White Photographs 1990 - 2007

    Happenstance is a collection of my earliest street based work, shot mostly when I was studying Documentary Photography in Newport in the mid 1990’s. The subject matter varies from the Road Protesters in Leyton to Wall Street Bankers in New York and shows some obvious homages to my earlier influences such as Tony Ray-Jones and Garry Winogrand.

  • Underground

    Released simultaneously with ‘Happenstance’, ‘Underground’ is the product of my first series of pictures of my home city London. Inspired by Bruce Davidson’s epic New York Subway series, this was shot in colour with flash over a short but intensive three month period between 1994 and 1995.
