I like the idea that New Year’s Day is the new New Year’s Eve! There’s so much pressure to have so much fun on New Year’s Eve that if you haven’t drunk enough you might notice that the service is a bit crap and the sound system isn’t that great, and your ticket was overpriced…Continue reading

For some reason it feels quite exciting to sit in a big chair! You can’t help but feel a bit silly and delighted at the same time! This chair is the largest rocking chair ever made and is at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! William Tempest in a big chair at Kensington Palace. American comedian…Continue reading

I love carousels. They are just so beautiful and magical. I’ve wanted to rent on for a shoot for ages!

This carousel is currently outside the…Continue reading

Over the years I have had the pleasure of working with the lovely model Max Rogers (you may recognise him from the recent Tommy Hilfiger campaign). I recently worked with Max at the Birmingham Clothes Show and I noticed a t-shirt he was wearing in the finale. This shirt was actually in support of a…Continue reading

I saw this picture at a location house that we were shooting in and thought it was perfect for Christmas Day. I used to love Christmas Day when I was little but as I got older it lost that magic. A few years back I found the magic again by simply going for a walk…Continue reading

I have always been a huge fan of sportswear. Sportswear is more exciting than most people realize as it’s really all about innovation of fabrics and technology. Speedo’s revolutionary LZR Racer swimsuit was so effective that it was able to reduce race times by around 2%. During the The Beijing Olympics 94% of all swimming…Continue reading

Too many people think that a photographic studio is just about white walls – but many studios have lots of options inside. It’s great for editorials or commercial shoots to have a selection of furniture and even different textures of walls. Sometimes a couple of props can add so much to the mood of the…Continue reading

Love this super cool BarryM Instant Nail Effects – nail paint. You need  to start with coat of nail polish, any colour red, purple, gold – for my shoot the model was wearing a beige nail varnish. Then you paint a coat of ‘Instant Nail Effects’, it goes on like a normal black polish but…Continue reading

This afternoon my taxi passed by Trafalgar Square and there were several hundred Santa Clauses singing Beatles songs. I wasn’t sure if it was a genuine flash mob or an iTunes promo but whatever it was it was very festive!

I love this hat – it’s not me, I couldn’t pull it off but I would admire the person that does! I love the tweed lining too! It’s by Emmanuel Katsaros, who has quite a few cool and quirky pieces.The collection consists of a limited number of pieces, each individually made and entirely sourced and…Continue reading
