Week 93: Daydream.

Day dreams mean more to me, I think. I can remember them and edit them how I wish. My subconscious is still present but allows much more manipulation. I have been in a dream like state for a while now and I would not wish it away. I will keep this short as there is not much to say that can keep anyone else from relating to it.

Week 92: Walk away.

I try my best to just get along in the world. To try and get on with everyone I meet, and please everybody I speak to. Very occasionally I will drop this personality (as I have noticed recently) if I am feeling upset about something. Due to my appalling bad luck, it's normally when I have to make a first impression on somebody and I tend to get judged as moody or sometimes even arrogant. Everybody is allowed to be sad.

Week 91: Ovation.

Whilst looking over my years of being a portrait photographer, I realised how much I adore the people who have participated in my images. Their dedication to my camera work has made it possible for me to capture the photographs I'm known for. The subjects are the motor that drives my potential to keep extending itself. I would like to thank every individual that has taken part in my photography, even the candid ones. I have no idea how to show this appreciation other than to post it on this personal blog of mine. So if anybody reading this has been in one of my photographs, thank you, seriously thank you.


I do not have any favourite models, but this was certainly one of my favourite shoots. This day consisted of such an interesting family with a simple, lovely living style. This photograph was taken on 5x4 transparency, a long with a series of other photographs for a project that I indulged myself in last year. I will not go into much detail concerning the concept, but I would like to thank Penny Fillingham and the rest of her family for including me in such a great day so that I could capture some fantastic photographs.

Week 90: Conformity III.

My week has been full of spontaneity but also sadness. A sadness that describes the longing to be with the ones I love. I miss them. I feel like I need to separate from the opportunity that have arisen and stick my soul to what matters most. This week links in with the past two weeks in a way that I find deeply tragic. I do not wish to conform to what is needed of me within the social world, friends are a fantastic blessing to have, however you cannot mould yourself to fit in with what you have been originally forced into.


This is similar to the last photograph, just take it as a singular image. Well, try to, if you cannot separate the two, I don't really mind.

Week 89: Conformity II.

I am still thinking about it so I will still photograph it.


Last week's photograph was a lot more subtle than this.
