This week I received news that the photographs I submitted to the Morpholio Eyetime 2012 photo competition have been shortlisted, which is fantastic news!
I entered 3 images from my Beautiful Brutalism project which got through the first stage of the competition.
To view my photos and vote please visit Morpholio.
On a grey Monday afternoon after a client shoot I went to Paternoster Square near St Paul's to photograph the vents designed by Thomas Heatherwick. I have wanted to photograph them for a while and the grey, flat light was perfect! The whole project can be seen here.
Autumn has finally arrived and summer now seems a distant memory. Summer 2012 for me was very busy. The Summer Exhibition at the RA closed on August 12 and I sold 15 prints in total which was fantastic for a first time exhibitor. So thank you very much for everyone who saw or bought my photograph at the exhibition. I received some very lovely and positive feedback about my work.
I have also added two more buildings to my 'Beautiful Brutalism' project, firstly Carr-Saunders Hall in London which can be seen on my behance gallery here and secondly, Park Street Car Park in Cambridge which can be found on my website here. My next building to add to the project will be the Sidgwick Site at Cambridge University.
I also teamed up with artists Manifold to document their work in progress for two exhibitions at the National Trust buildings, 2 Willow Road and Red House. The progress shots can be seen here and the installed artwork at 2 Willow Road can be seen here. This was a great opp…
On Monday I received a letter from the Royal Academy regarding my submission to the Summer Exhibition and was really excited to find out my photograph, Beautiful Brutalism, had been accepted! With over 11,000 entries I can't quite believe it but am looking forward to see it hanging up.
Private views are from Thursday 31st May to Sunday 3rd June and it opens to the public 4th June until 12 August. So if you are in London worth taking a look as it is always an interesting exhibition to see.
After a few months away from my ongoing project Creatives I am now ready to get back into it and looking for artists, creatives, anyone who works in a creative field and has an interesting or unusual workspace/studio. The project mixes both portrait and interior photography. I would like to progress the project with a bit more emphasis on the space people work in.
If would like to get involved with the project and have an interesting working environment, please get in touch. To see some of the shoots from the project so far please visit my website
This year I have decided to enter the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition for the first time. I've never really thought of entering it as always thought it was more for paintings then photographs but having looked into it more realised it was open to all art forms. I chose a photograph that I took last year down on the Southbank and one that I personally really like. I filled in the entry form and sent it off before March 13th, next job was to get the image printed and framed ready to hand in.
On Monday 26th March I headed into London with my framed print to 6 Burlington Gardens. I was amazed to see quite a small queue, I had prepared myself for the worse thinking I might be waiting for a very long time but after 5 mins I was walking back out into the sunshine with my picture safely delivered. I hope my photo gets chosen but all I can do now is wait with my fingers crossed!
