Photographing the Southbank with Energy

1

My lovely clients at  ‘energy design’ gave me a great job recently down along London’s Southbank. My shots were to be used in a local area guide, marketing the swanky new ‘Grange Garden’ housing development down near Bermondsey. These are the sort of jobs i just love!! Me, my camera, lots of walking and hunting out interesting places, features, and funky people.

The weather was glorious, so i jumped on my motorbike and headed down there early. My brief was to show the local area, its atmosphere, the characters, the bars and restaurants etc. If there is one aspect to documentary/reportage photography i love it is capturing the things that are there, happening under your nose… I love people watching and seeing people going about their busy lives.

Have to say the cover shot was my fave also, so glad it made it there!! 🙂

If you are down that way, why not pop into Grange Garden and see some of my images displayed in the reception area… here are a few shots from my iphone of me having a peek myself last week 🙂

Latest Project 'BBC Documentary ~ My Life: KARATE KIDS Saturday 13th March BBC2 11.30am'


Karate Kids follows the friendships of two children with cerebral palsy. Tim cannot speak, so best friend Francis is his voice. However, when Tim embarks upon marital arts training his life changes forever. Karate Kids is a unique glimpse into a world that is ignored by mainstream society and often misunderstood by many children. This film challenges the perceptions around childhood disability. From award-winning and BAFTA nominated film-makers Walsh Bros.

I worked during the making of the film, producing all the stills for use to promote and document the show.

The whole experience of working amongst these kids was very humbling.I’m very grateful to John Walsh and his production team for giving me the opportunity to work with them on this, and hope now to be doing more of this work and eventually some movie set stills…

Watch this space! …
