Once again time has slipped by at an alarming rate. I have not been able to sit down and address my blog for those out there that enjoy it. Speaking of which, I need more readers so please tell your friends, colleagues etc to come and check out my work, contact me if they need a photographer and generally get me out there and known more, I also would love to write some guest pieces if you have a blog or know anyone who would be interested.

Since I last managed to find a minute and to be on here I've been occupied with mostly photographing interiors for brochure production, continuing on my personal project "The Collectors" and excitingly purchasing a car!

I put the exclamation mark there for those who know me and know that I have owned no other vehicle than motorcycles since 1997. I am now the proud owner of a beautiful (in my eyes) Ford Mondeo Ghia X, it may not sound like the most exciting car in the world to some of you, and maybe in the future when I finally get the recognition I deserve I will get the Ferrari 250 Short Wheelbase I dream of. I think however that will be parked next to my Ghia X. I have already become strangely attached to the Mmmmmondeo, it does everything it says on the tin. So far Mrs L and I have enjoyed a trip to Dorset (I have pics and will post). I have used it to transport me and kit to photograph Mr Keith Lawrence, his son Manny and an outstanding collection of vinyl, I headed in to town to shoot some commercial wedding shots, so much easier transporting models and kit in a car than on a Suzuki GSXR, better for the hair too. I then went to Bristol to photograph BStorm in his police station cell studio, what a cracking place and fella, I look forward to seeing him again. Finally I went to Fishguard, stood up a mountain for 2 hours and made one of the best landscape photographs I have ever made......


I have to make all my images that I post now very low res' I am afraid, I am sure all you lovely people who follow my work wouldn't dream of lifting an image I have worked so hard to make. Sadly the government don't see it the same way. For people who supposedly encourage small businesses I find id very strange that they pass a change in copyright law enabling the removal of data from a photograph posted and then free use without payment to the creator of said photograph. I have spent many years learning my craft and now the government thinks it is ok to give away my product for free, my only choice is to make the images I post smaller in the hope that it will encourage people who like them and wish to use them or own prints to contact me. It isn't hard to do so and for a piece of work that will give you many years of pleasure then it is well worth it.

I am off to Sussex this weekend to collect another couple for "The Collectors" series, I am very much in need for more. If you know a record collector, vinyl enthusiast or anyone connected to the industry that supplies vinyl to the market please tell them about me, send them my way or tell me how to get in touch with them. Here are a couple more from the series so you can see where I am coming from....



As ever spread the word, tell all your contacts, friends, family that if they need a good, reliable photographer to contact me.....

Until the next time I get on here (hopefully not so long), here's to keeping the fingers crossed for an amazing summer.....
