Dad – “People and Passion”.

I’ve been photographing Dad doing his everyday “thing” as part of a university multimedia project called “People and Passion”. He talks about his career and his thoughts as an actor and guru of poetry.

Here’s one that I think is likely to make the edit.

New photo story on its way…

I’m in the middle of captioning my new story and have asked my kind subjects Kate, John and Alfred to check over what I’ve written in order to make sure I’m not about to misinform anyone about their lives!

The story is about the relationship between Alfred and his Mother Kate. Alfred has Asperger’s syndrome.

Here’s a sneak peak of the story.

STORMS – A Collective Photography Exhibition, Number 20 Wine Bar, Penryn, 20th February – 20th March 2014

ANYBODY IN, AROUND OR NEAR(ISH) TO FALMOUTH (Yes – including Devon people!! Although on this occasion I would highly recommend the A30 as opposed to any form of barely existing public transport), please come and visit STORMS – A Collective Photography Exhibition, which documents the recent storms which have hit the South West. The exhibition is likely to contain some pretty epic pictures, and there’s one of mine in there too.

The Private View will take place tomorrow, Thursday 20th February at 7pm and the exhibition will be running for one month. Please come and tell all your friends to come too.

Number 20 Wine Bar, Lower Market Street, Penryn, Cornwall

A Person At Work: Garry Johnson – Artist Blacksmith (work in progress)

Garry Johnson started blacksmithing after spending many years working as a civil engineer both in the UK and abroad. Having made the decision to further his design skills and develop his craft, he was accepted onto the Artist Blacksmith degree course at the Hereford College of Art and Design.

At present, Garry Johnson works mostly to commission, although he particularly enjoys the freedom of creating sculpture and artwork for exhibitions. His work has been exhibited in locations such as Trafalgar Square, Glastonbury Festival and The National Trust’s Lanhydrock House as well as galleries in Islington and Chealsea and more locally in and around Cornwall.

Garry kindly allowed me to photograph him in his workshop, which is set on the edge of the beautiful Tamar Valley in Cornwall.

I was lucky that I had a brilliant choice of light to work with and Garry was happy to get on with a hot forged steel lilly he was making from scratch, whilst I worked around him, trying not to become a hazard to us both! To my great surprise and delight, I am now the owner of the lilly I had been photographing Garry making.

So thank you Garry. Here’s some pics…

It was agreed in today’s group critique that this is the photo that I should print professionally for my portfolio.

Unfortunately this portrait does not fit the project brief, but I’ve printed it for myself as it demonstrates the lovely lighting I was working with and marks the end of a successful shoot.
