Portraits: Prohibition

These are some recent portraits I took following an idea I had a while back but needed to figure out how to achieve. The images were taken at a night called Prohibition that runs at various clubs across London every month or so, all the subjects were punters attending the event who were kind enough to allow me to take their picture. You can find out more about the night here

If you go down to the woods today...

Last month I was lucky enough to be invited (I say invited - I much pretty much invited myself) to stay with Nick Weston in his awesome treehouse that he built in the woods near the South Downs. Nick's blog has been on my radar for awhile and I've been following his amazing tips on foraging, wild foods and general bush craft manliness (but delivered in a very humble and down to earth manner). Anyway the jist of it is that I stayed two days with him the woods and couldn't have dreaded coming back to London more, I wish I could have stayed longer and absorbed even more bushcraft know-how. I wanted to document what he was doing buy choosing to live the way he did (he spent around six months living in the treehouse, leaving at the end of October 2009) so I took some snaps, which in these situations can be a bit of a sacrifice as you've got one part of the brain focusing on learning, paying attention and interacting and the other half on making the most of picture opportunities - it's always a bit of a juggling trick. Anyway I thoroughly recommend if you have an interest in cooking, bushcraft, wild foods or even just the great outdoors that you head over to his blog a keep an eye out for his soon to be published book. Click on the images above to see them bigger.

I'm still alive...

Apologies for the lack of action on here recently - been a bit snowed under with work and a few jobs that I can't put up here yet until they go to print - but watch this space. The shot above was from a recent light test. Coming soon - images from my time staying with this chap in his treehouse.
