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.

Paul and Joshua featured on Cartel Photos homepage

Cartel Photos photographic agency have kindly featured my story Paul and Joshua on their homepage this month, in preparation for what should be an exciting start to a more interactive website that will encourage open discussion and involvement on topics that surround the medium of photography.

In a few weeks time, my homepage feature will include a sound byte, where I will be discussing my experiences, challenges and the specific issues I faced surrounding ‘access in photography’.

I will be looking at three projects from the last academic year: Paul and Joshua, Eileen (which is not yet published) and Longevity. These projects have been specifically chosen by myself and Cartel Photos as examples of where access has had a direct effect on the work I produce and on myself as a photographer.

The idea is that my discussion will encourage other photography students from Falmouth and dare I say it – from beyond those-there borders, to share their experiences with us so we can discuss the topic further, building on each others thoughts and pushing the topic to its absolute limits…

I will post when the discussion will be available. Watch this space and gather your thoughts people!!

MOD Marine Engineers Doug Stembridge and Tom Street volunteer at Diggin’ It, Plymouth, 4th February 2014

As I’ve previously posted, Diggin’ It is a charity that aims to support schools and isolated members of the community in the development and sustainability of gardens using organic techniques.

Since our 24 hour university project where I visited Diggin’ It for the first time, I’ve continued making trips trips, partly to volunteer myself and partly to continue photographing. 

On this particular day, they had engineers from the MOD volunteering as part of their compulsory training. As they worked and chatted, I photographed their interactions, hoping to capture a moment between the two of them for my current university project – ‘The Relationship’.
