Yesterday I was watching my three year old daughter at her art table working on a picture. She had a shaker of glitter in each hand plus one in her mouth. She was shaking her little arms and nodding her head furiously in an effort, I suppose, to get as […]
“I am not interested in shooting new things – I am interested to see things new.” Ernst Haas Over the past few months I’ve been interviewing a number of people who’ve come on my workshops to find out how I can keep making them better and better. One […]
I talk a lot about when I go out to shoot early in the morning how empty the streets are of people, that the city is completely deserted. Well, it not absolutely accurate – I do meet some people in my wanderings and on workshops, here and there. And the one thing they […]
I’ve been calling London my home now for near 15 years and in all this time I have spent ages and many many miles walking its street in search of great places to shoot. In this time I’ve come to know a few places very well. They are locations that […]
When I was picking my next city to shoot at dawn after London I was super resistant to Paris. I had been to Paris on a few weekends with my wife since I arrived in London from LA in 2000. To me it was a pretty, dinky little city that […]
This morning my family and I woke up to the best email – the news report about my Cities at Dawn project was on the BBC. There were many screams of excitement and joy (you can see the BBC report here) It’s exciting to all of us because for the […]
So the crazy Christmas season is upon us. I hope it’s treating you all well and you aren’t getting overwhelmed by the run up to the big day. I have of course a few good suggestions for presents for said holiday which if you love photography, or know someone who […]
I had a great workshop last weekend with some more wonderful people. We had a great time wandering the sunny(!?) dawn streets of London. Maybe it’s been the terrible spring weather but for some reason knowing it was finally going to be a spectacular morning made me genuinely giddy with […]
I am fascinated by Leake Street, off Lower Marsh in Waterloo. You can stroll through everyday and see some new work or someone in the process of painting over another’s.
My main camera is the Hasselblad 503, a film camera, but recently I’ve become a bit tired with the format so now digital is taking pride of place in my kit.
I hope you are all getting on well with 2012. Beginnings can be hard but remember 2012 will be 2013 in no time so lets make the most of it. As Steve Jobs said “Soon you will be dead.”
[wpmldate format=”%d/%m/%Y”] Hi All! I am in the process of migrating my blog onto www.londonatdawn.com, my photography workshop website. Thought a little integration would make my life simpler. WRONG! What a pain!…but it looks like it’s almost done. What’s going to happen now is that you will receive an HTML newsletter […]
Hello Folks! Two good things to report this week. Firstly, my next London at Dawn workshop is June 18th and 19th. It’s going to be a small group wandering the dawn and early morning London streets creating amazing images. It’ll be a huge dose of information and inspiration! (The workshops […]
Paris is such a wonderful city and regardless of what the guidebooks say July is a great time to be here. We are staying in the 15th arr. on Rue de la Convention in a brilliant flat on the 7th floor with a view of the Eiffel Tower in the […]
As you may well know already I have shot bellies for a few years now. This year I will continue to do the same – the only difference is this year I will exhibit the project. Promise. All my friends and associates say the time has come. I feel I could […]
