Earlier this week a fairground rolled into town. I already had a roll of Agfa film (£1!) in my Olympus so I set out to see what I could document. As the ISO of the film (hows sensitive it is too light) is just 200 I used the flash to give the film a chance to capture what was going on.
The fairground was fairly small so afterwards we headed out to explore Brighton after dark..
I first shot ‘lines of city’ in Canterbury and then again in a Sussex village. Looking for patterns and repetition is a great way to take in your surroundings and as I am back in Brighton for a few months before I start my MA in London I thought it’d be a great way to look at my hometown from a new perspective.
If you’re in a creative rut or struggling to find something to photograph try this out, it’s a great excuse to get out with your camera and enjoy exploring.

My latest project is a little different to my normal street photography/ documentary style photography but I really enjoyed putting it together and shooting it.
Each image represents an idiom.
So here it goes, my latest project ‘Playing to the Gallery’..
Here are the images with the idioms in their captions..

I really enjoyed testing the Sony a7RII by ‘shooting from the hip‘. So I took the camera on a day trip to Brighton to photograph the eclectic mix of people who make up the seaside city.
The camera once again performed incredibly well and it allows you to customise controls which comes in really handy when using manual mode doing street photography. The camera itself is mirror-less making it much smaller and compact compared to similar DSLR camera such as the 5D series.
I’m heading to Iceland next week so look out for a brand new travel diary, film and hundreds (most likely thousands) of photographs!
