…a subway begins. The bridge offers some of the finest views of London (in fact I think the finest view of London – I used to cycle to work across Waterloo Bridge every day, and every day it was a mind-blowing experience). But the subway – while not equally charming […]

Yesterday was one of those rare days I was able to pick up my camera and roam the streets of London taking pictures and filming for pleasure, not for money. So I shot what I love shooting: street. I wanted to use just one 85mm lens, but ended up using my […]
The festival of light has been and gone. I’m sure it’ll be back, it was delightful. Mostly. When it worked. I went with a group of friends on Saturday night and judging by how popular some of the installations were – and how completely packed the temporarily traffic-free roads were […]
I got a huge parcel – and an even bigger surprise – this morning. It came from the nice guys at Apple. Although to be perfectly honest, I suspected it might be on its way after Brendan Ó Sé, whose pictures – like mine – were featured in Apple’s Shot […]
I’m really really sorry to say that, but the new Storehouse 2.0 app is dreadful. And I know I’m not the only one feeling completely disappointed. It’s been my favourite app for months. Wonderfully easy to use, a clever way of creating rich, visual stories based on a combination of […]
Have you ever seen the Shot on iPhone 6 images? I bet you have, they seem to be everywhere – tube, billboards, online, newspapers. The Shot on iPhone 6 campaign by Apple has become one of the most recognisable campaigns of the past 12 months. Launched in March, the campaign […]
Taken at a bus stop near London Bridge, London. Camera: Fuji X100S. My b/w street photography and colour street photography galleries have had a refresh, have a look.
How can being curious help your career? This is the main question behind our video series called Curiosity & Opportunity, I’ve co-created with Ian Sanders (iansanders.com). In episode three, shot entirely on an iPhone 6, we meet Dan Rubin, photographer, designer, creative director, for whom the iPhone has become one of […]
Here I was, thinking that I have no time for street photography and that film production has overtaken my life completely. But a quick rummage through my 2015 files (unbelievable how quickly they pile up) made me realise it’s actually not been as bad as I thought. True, I haven’t done many […]
Did 500px.com just give photographers a simple, but effective publicity boost (and Flickr another kick in the ass)? Unless you’ve spent the last week or so in a cave, you probably know that Flickr has just released a new version of its mobile app. It’s got tons of reviews, mostly […]
What do you do with your mobile images apart from uploading them to Instagram or Facebook? If you take more than selfies, sunrises and food porn shots, check out Stockimo. Backed by Alamy, Stockimo has been created exclusively with mobile shooters (iPhone only for now) in mind. Their strapline – “Cash […]
I’ve recently come back from South Africa, so please excuse the persistently African theme on this blog over the next few days. But to begin with – no lions or any other of the Big 5. Just an African storm. A lightning, in fact. We were very lucky with the […]
I was doing a bit of location scouting last weekend and ended up in Dungeness just before sunset. (That’s an achievement for me as I’ve been planning the Dungeness trip for ages and ended up there almost by accident.) It was freezing cold and almost empty, which made the normally […]
I’m not sure whether that’s pure street art or something else. I’m not even sure who did this or how long it’s been there. I found this on a hoarding in front of a dilapidated house in Union Street, Southwark. Just several unfinished “Before I die….” sentences and hundreds of […]
Stoke Newington, north London, yesterday afternoon. It’s a mobile shot. I was so amazed by this – and I was laughing so hard – I forgot I had my camera in my bag.
