Botticelli, Elytra and random legs


I went to the V&A today to see Botticelli Reimagined – an exhibition charting the painter’s influence on everything – from F1 car designs, to retail, fashion, film-making, and obviously all forms of art. Outside the exhibition however, in the V&A garden, I spotted Elytra. Elytra is a “Garden installation by […]

Where Waterloo Bridge ends…


…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 […]

Not quite noir, but …


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 best of (my) Lumiere London 2016


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 […]

Storehouse: how to kill a great app


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 […]

I’m now part of Apple’s World Gallery


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 […]

My London street photography – 2015 so far


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 […]

Chasing the African storms


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 […]

Dungeness at twilight


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 […]
