Thurso, Scotland

I was on assignment up in Thurso, at the very northern tip of Sctoland last week, to photograph the O'Neill Cold Water Classic. I spotted this chap, Mike, a kite surfer instructor and just had to snap a portrait. It's shot on my 600SE with some old Polaroid film they no longer make called 'Chocolate' - I had been holding back from using it, as it was my only packet, and I didn't think I was going to be that excited by the results - however they look great. I have a bunch of other portraits I shot with it, but they'll have to wait for now. I will be posting them up here at some point in the future though, so keep your eyes peeled.

A few images I took a month or so back in Brixham, Devon as part of a travel feature I shot for the Guardian

Recent Corporate cover

On a slightly different tone to rural poverty in Rwanda, in fact you could argue the complete other end of the spectrum. This was one of those shoots where I was glad to have spotted the opportunity for an interesting backdrop over the bland boardroom that I was being briskly nudged towards. Still a bit tricky to light when it's only you on a windy roof-top. Luckily there was an extra body from the magazine who was game to try out the strength of their arms and hold up my lighting rig!

Back from Assignment: Rwanda

Sorry for the slow rate of updates, only got back from Rwanda this weekend and I've had a mountain of post production and captioning to do before heading off again on assignment this Wednesday. In the meantime here's a sneak peak of some of the work from Rwanda.

These were both shot in the northern district of Shingiro close to the Ugandan and Congolese border and focus on the work of female farming co-operatives. I was working alongside ActionAid and the results will be in the Guardian (G2) and online in a multimedia platform. I will keep you posted!
