New Portfolio #DisabilityIsNotInability

Visit my new portfolio #DisabilityIsNotInability Having a disability places you in the world’s largest minority group, and there is an overwhelming chance you’ll be living in a developing country, without access to education or healthcare. As a group you would have the highest unemployment rate, and be the poorest on Earth....
My Favourite Place

My Favourite Place

These images were taken of parents, children, and staff at the Maison de Benediction at Haiti Hospital Appeal (HHA) in Cap-Haitien, Haiti. This is undoubtably one of my favourite places to be in the world. The love and joy which flows unceasingly though this place is beautiful to witness. A centre for...
My Paralympic Dream

My Paralympic Dream

This summer I had the opportunity to cover the London 2012 Paralympics for an NGO called The Dream. This was a dream come true for me. I have been working on a documentary following the story of Leon, a man who lost his wife, eight children, and use of his legs in...

Contax Zeiss 50mm f/1.4

This weekend I finally had the chance to test out my new Contax Zeiss 50 1.4. I got this lens some time ago but was waiting to get a Leitax Zeiss-Contax/Canon adapter which I’ve heard can’t be beaten. But decided instead of shelling out nearly €100 I’d get an interim cheapo one off eBay. I’m so...

Walkabout Foundation changing lives in Haiti

GCDS held a sponsored Walkathon, raising $47,000 for Walkabout, the equivalent of 156 wheelchairs, and a team from the school went over to Haiti to distribute them. Here is...

This week I’ve been taking the Below the Line challenge, spending only £1 a day on food for five days. Live Below the Line is a campaign aimed at challenging the UK’s response to poverty. Extreme poverty is defined by the World Bank as having the equivalent spending power of $1.25 USD a day. Whilst I’ve been hungry...

Russia Calling

Russia Calling

I’m currently waiting for a flight to St Petersburg after a stopover in Tallinn, as we are going to visit my wife’s friends and family in Russian Lapland. I’m really excited about using this time to get out into the wilderness in Karelia and the Kola Peninsula and shoot some raw timelapses of the epic...
The Miracle of New Life in Haiti

The Miracle of New Life in Haiti

Two years ago I saw the delivery of baby incubators to a hospital in northern Haiti, which was planning to open the only properly equipped maternity ward in the north of the country. I also visited the state hospital in Cap-Haitien, where tragically I witnessed a child dying due to lack of equipment needed for...
Packing for Haiti

Packing for Haiti

I love looking at other photographers travel gear posts to finesse packing my equipment. Gavin Gough has a helpful one here. Whilst packing for my upcoming trip to Haiti, I thought I’d post up a list of what I take on humanitarian photography trips, as I’m always trying to refine what I’m carrying to get the...

Devastated to hear about Adam Yauch today. The Beastie Boys have played a huge part of my seminal years, the fun & creativity that they always bought to their work is a huge inspiration. Here are a few of my favourites:
Mount Hagen Sing Sing - Papua New Guinea

Mount Hagen Sing Sing – Papua New Guinea

In the midday sun of this tropical paradise, hundreds of ornately decorated tribes people glisten with sweat and pig fat as they sing and dance their way around a sports pitch. Toothy grins with teeth stained red from chewing beetle nuts, a mild stimulant, meet my camera lens wherever I look. The annual gathering of...
