Photographing People of the South

Street photography provides an opportunity to see towns and cities from a new perspective. Even if its on your way to your local store its a great way to absorb whats going on around you.

Photographing the disposability of nature

I am currently photographing a project in collaboration  with a fashion designer. The clothing collection and photographic exhibition surrounds the theme of disposable and what the word means to you. Like photography, disposability is subjective. What someones deems disposable others may not. When I think of the term I think about disposable income, cameras, and…

But as I began to take photography more seriously and studied at university the inconsistency  became more of an annoyance and money sapper. Days before I headed of to Iceland I spotted…

Filming February with the Sony A7Rii

At the end of January I got my hands on a Sony A7RII. I’ve already taken thousands of photos but I wanted to test out the video capabilties. So I decided to shoot footage every day throughout February to get used to a mirror-less camera. After a couple of days and ironing out initial problems…

Back to Black & White in 35mm

I have been experimenting with colour film a lot lately, mainly Portra and Lomochrome purple. But a late-night purchase led to me buying some HP5 Ilford Black and White film (accidentally in bulk..). This was the first film I ever shot back in college when I was 16, I really enjoyed using this film again and experimenting with double exposures….
