New Season / New Start


Autumn has finally arrived and summer now seems a distant memory. Summer 2012 for me was very busy. The Summer Exhibition at the RA closed on August 12 and I sold 15 prints in total which was fantastic for a first time exhibitor. So thank you very much for everyone who saw or bought my photograph at the exhibition. I received some very lovely and positive feedback about my work.

I have also added two more buildings to my 'Beautiful Brutalism' project, firstly Carr-Saunders Hall in London which can be seen on my behance gallery here and secondly, Park Street Car Park in Cambridge which can be found on my website here. My next building to add to the project will be the Sidgwick Site at Cambridge University.

I also teamed up with artists Manifold to document their work in progress for two exhibitions at the National Trust buildings, 2 Willow Road and Red House. The progress shots can be seen here and the installed artwork at 2 Willow Road can be seen here. This was a great opportunity to document an exhibition from making the pieces to installing it on site. The exhibition runs until October 14 so for more info about seeing it, go to news.

I also managed to finally visit and photograph this year's Summer Pavilion at the Serpentine Gallery, images to follow...

Autumn always feels like a new start so look forward to what the next few months bring!

Welbeck Street Car Park due for demolition

"In summary the existing car park building has no particular aesthetic or historic value, and detracts from the setting of nearby heritage assets by virtue of it's bland and uninspired elevational treatment"
KM Heritage Consultant 2017


The inevitable has happened and yesterday, Thursday 10th August, Westminster Council approved the demolition of Welbeck Street Car Park. Although it has been on the table for a long time it's such a shame that yet another stunning piece of brutalist architecture will be destroyed to make room for a bland, non-descript hotel with no particular aesthetic value. I still can't understand how Historic England and the heritage consultants used can't see it's aesthetic quality or structural ingenuity and therefore listing it so it might survive just a bit longer. It will be a great loss!

I have been shooting the last few months of it's life since March and hope to undertake a few more shoot…

Photography on a Postcard Artist

I'm very proud to announce that I have been chosen as one of the Photography on a Postcard Artist. The above image from my Beautiful Brutalism project will be on sale along with lots of other upcoming and more well known photographers. The public will be able to purchase a ticket guaranteeing them a photograph, although they won’t know which card they have won until the show closes on the 27th October. Each photograph will be an edition of one and will come with a signed certificate of authenticity. All the money raised will go to The Hepatitis C Trust’s campaign to eliminate hepatitis C from the UK by the year 2030. Hopefully a lot of money will be raised for this great charity.

Ode to Welbeck Photography featured in Parking Review

The Latest issue of Parking Review (September 2017) has published a lovely feature on my Ode to Welbeck photography project. Welbeck also made the front cover which is great to see! I'm so glad the demolition of this beautiful car park is getting so much coverage and to see how much love it has. Still can't believe it can't be saved, disgraceful.
