Thanks to everyone involved in the Ernest Jones shoot. Despina Curtis for the props styling, Georgina Hodson for the styling and Caroline, Jennifer and Kajsa for all their hard work.
First jewellery campaign. It was all about the emotions so the model casting was really important. They all worked so hard. I haven't worked in black and white for a long time but I think it looks classic and beautiful.
More of the Parker campaign. This is Tobias, an engineering student. I love meeting all these different people. Thanks to @georgiegwyer for the styling, @1_am_becky for production and @deechops for the props styling.
It was great working with the street cast talent for my Parker Pens campaign. I love the brand and it was challenging to find people with different jobs and passions to match the various pen types.
Amazing frosty and foggy conditions in Victoria Park and along the canal yesterday. It was worth the early bike ride to see the park transformed into an unrecognisable place for a few hours. The day was still and it was such a hard frost overnight that the hoar frost covered all the surfaces with little spikes.
More portraits with Isabelle at the open studio exhibition at Somerset House.
So foggy today. This is a shot from my project along the lesser known London rivers. I love the way the fog completely changes the landscape. I could hardly find my way around when I shot this, although I knew this stretch of the river Lea.Read More
This retro police car in Brooklyn had a Gotham City badge on the side. I also saw some Arri lights being pushed around, Maybe it's the new #BatmanvSuperman #dawnofjustice film due out in 2016. #filmlocation #gothamcity #brooklyn #NYCRead More
This is James and Max of London band, The Proper Ornaments. We shot the portrait for Soma magazine Music issue. Their music references late sixties psychedelia and has been compared to Velvet Underground and the Jesus and Mary Chain. Max's guitar was put together from parts of different instruments with the help of James's father.Read More
Peter Jukes is tweeting from the phone hacking trial at the Old Bailey. He has raised over £20k through crowd funding. He is there every day and tweets every one or two minutes. He's just been voted Best UK Reporter on Twitter & Social Media. We did these pictures for a profile on Twitter.Read More
I'm shooting a trio of ads with Adam Suschitzky who is helping me out with the video element of the shoot. There is a self imposed technical difficulty in that we have a live projection in a day-lit room. It gives a great effect, but it would have been easier to do in post production. We like the challenge though.
Then there was just this moment of light on the table when we were packing up.
The Qatar Airlines lounge at Heathrow has been voted one of the most luxurious in the world. Luckily, I didn't have to buy a ticket to get in there as I'm shooting the new campaign for the airline. It's been interesting to learn about the fashion in thobes and abayas worn in the Middle Eastern countries and all the customs associated with the dress. The men look great in the thobes and gutras, all white and crisp - you do need the sun to go with them though.Read More
I've been waiting months for the winter light and weather for my river and canal project. This has been the first really foggy day and the fog was so thick it lasted all day and rendered familiar landscape almost unrecognisable.Read More
I'm working on a new series documenting the London canals. I have always used them to get from place to place, but now I am looking a little closer and going a little further. It's a place where people and nature converge, each trying to get the upper hand. People I stop and ask to photograph are very generous with their time and trusting of a stranger approaching them. I'm looking forward to Autumn and Winter when the light and scene will change to reveal another side.Read More
Sam's 1st book of poetry, 81 Austerities, won the Forward prize last year. The poems were originally posted online and he uses twitter as a more direct communication for his ideas and language. He trained as a visual artist and takes care with the layout of the words on the page. He has a reading coming up at the ICA on 6th June celebrating Independents Day.
This picture was part of a series for Soma magazine.
I'm always looking for ideas and great places to shoot. It's been so grey and cold for so many weeks, I have been researching online rather than getting out there.
When you get a bit of sun through, it brings everything to life and there is nothing like seeing people and places for real.
The Photographer's Gallery are showing Ill Form and Void Full, the new series by Letinsky. The still life works include objects, cut-outs of previously shot and printed subject matter and found magazine images. The resulting large format prints are so subtle of light and colour it's hard to believe they weren't painted. Whispers of Sellotape holding pieces of paper in place are visible only through textural change.
My favourite image is a dented, white paper cup hit by light in a sea of grey. Above is Untitled #37 from 'To Say It Isn't So' series, 2006.
