September teaching at Morley College

Following my busy summer working on commissions around holiday adventures I am finishing off my preparations for my up-coming teaching through the academic year, where one day a week I like to share my enthusiasm for photography and my professional practice experience with students. As well as running progressive Digital SLR courses through the year up to Advanced level I teach term-long courses that will further enhance and enrich photographic skills within various genres of photography such as – Portrait photography, Studio Flash and Speedlight, Urban (street) photography, and Documentary photography (encompassing social documentary and photojournalism).

I am looking forward to meeting and helping new and past students to enjoy and improve both their technical and creative photographic skills. Always happy to share insights in to my professional practice as a commission photographer.

Zoe Murphy – Liberty Print Furniture

The bespoke printed furniture and textiles designer Zoe Murphy is now re loving furniture with a little help from Liberty Print.

I remember very well my day trip to Margate to photograph Zoe at her studio for BBC Homes & Antiques magazine, I really loved her designs and it was a privilege to see her at work at her studio. Thanks Zoe for directing me to the best local Fish & Chip shop after the shoot. I enjoyed every mouth full as I sat looking out to sea before my trip back around the M25. Also, big thanks to the Homes & Antiques team for such a nice commission. Here are a few shots I took on the day.
