…100 Years since Charles Booth – Video of installation

November 22, 2016


I thought I would make a small iPhone video of the installation at Oxford House for my archive and to show those who can’t make it to Bethnal Green. I think it looks pretty good, but of course I a very biased. Certainly the most ambitious exhibition I’ve staged (so far). The video is on Vimeo […]

Oxford House Exhibition Video Shoot

July 13, 2016


For the last two days I have been at Oxford House in Bethnal Green working with a group based there. The idea was to shoot some video footage of members of the group talking about their views on the social issues raised by Charles Booth’s survey – but in the modern context. The final version […]

Oxford House – Prospective Exhibition

April 30, 2016


I have been in discussions with John Ryan, CEO of Oxford House in Bethnal Green, about a possible exhibition in November of this year. The aim will be to commemorate the centenary of Charles Booth’s death. OH was originally a University Settlement along the lines of Toynbee Hall and was founded in the late 1800s. OH […]

After Marville…

November 5, 2015


I have decided to rename my project, which is exploring redevelopment/gentrification in the East London districts of Shoreditch, Spitalfields and Whitechapel, After Marville… The previous name Blueprint presumed the use of cyanotype as the means of printing the work. At this stage it seems much more appropriate to leave things open. My tentative version one artist’s […]

Antique Black and White Version of Video

November 5, 2013


One of the projects I have to complete for YOP concerns using Photoshop’s channel mixer to alter the mood of a digital black and white image. I plan to use some images from my East End work for this project. However, rather than randomly playing with the colour sliders on the channel mixer I have […]

Always Follow Ur Dreams!! Latest work and Test Video Format

November 5, 2013


One of the key factors I need to consider with this project is how I will show text along with the images. There are many options. So far in presenting the work I have included the text as a side panel alongside each photograph.  This option is quite common. For example it is the style […]

Place of Memories…video version with ambient sound

October 8, 2013


I have made a second version of this video with ambient sound from a jungle location…better still would have been to record the sounds at the place itself but I did not have the time nor the equipment to do this well. I think I prefer this version. Click on the photograph below to see […]

Place of Memories

October 8, 2013


I have been having fun with my photography whilst I have been on holiday in Hawaii. For the most part I have been working on a short series of images around Waimea in the North of Hawaii where I have been staying. I plan a separate post on this series later. I also made a […]

Urban Artists at Work – final shoot and new version of video

April 5, 2013


Yesterday I spent the day with a group of artists working on a collective work at Leake Street near Waterloo in London. It was very cold….still warming up. This was my final opportunity to shoot images in time for submitting work for assessment (by the end of May). The painting was in a dark tunnel, […]

45 seconds….

January 19, 2013


I have been progressing with my diptych portraits of friends and Rotary colleagues as per my previous post here. I have now completed 8 portraits of which I think I may use 6 in my final submission for the assignment. One of the ones I have retained so far is also a possible for exclusion. […]

Final Cut Pro X

December 2, 2012


I have been using video as a medium for showing some of my work. Specifically I have made two videos which will very probably form part of my submission for the assessment at level 3. So far I had made the videos using the Export Slideshow facility of Adobe Lightroom. This works very well but […]

Venezia Camera Obscura – The Movie

October 17, 2012


I have turned my Pinhole photographs of Venice into a short movie…thought this was a good way to look at them as I am able to control the pace and order of the viewing…add a bit of atmospheric music and it hangs together as a nice package.the photographs are  a series of urban landscapes/interiors captured […]


October 10, 2012


Just got back from Venice….I set myself a couple of small photo projects. First, I decided to try to capture Venice in black and white with my Zero 2000 6×6 pinhole camera. Somehow the soft focus and historical connotations of the pinhole seemed appropriate. I went out early in the mornings and concentrated on urban […]
