Week 193: Expansion.

Expanding on your skill set can be quite hard when you are in a box that doesn't stretch. My current mindset does not match my skill set. The atmosphere that is clouding my mind is holding me back from reaching my potential. What do you do when you cannot break through that barrier? I suppose I could find away around it.


This photo was taken for Hype's SS13 collection on Brick Lane, London. The reason I have posted this photo is due to it being taken in the centre of my old community, close to where I used to live. I loved the area and atmosphere of Shoreditch, Hoxton and East London in general. However, it was holding me back. It was a very closed community, much like the box I just mentioned. I want to break out and really see the world.

Week 192: Friendly Reminders.

This week I had to work at Hit The Deck Festival in Nottingham. Although it was a very hectic day, it was great to see some friendly faces that have been absent from my life for a while. These absences have only occurred because of my busy lifestyle. However, after so long of being away from my friends, nothing has changed. Everything is fantastic when I am in close proximity to them.


This is a photograph of one of my best friend's Adam, with his girlfriend Harrie. He understands love and he shows it. He loves that girl with all his heart. The main reason I value Adam as a friend, is that he wears his heart on his sleeve. He will express how he feels about a situation and not play games. He gets down to the point and makes sure that his feelings are known. You will always know where you stand with this guy. Both of us have been through a lot together, we've had hard times and great times but true friends never change. You don't have to know somebody for a long time for them to be a close friend. I've known Adam for about four years now and I would call him a closer friend than some people I've known my entire life.

Week 191: Back to work.

Taken time off work has made things really busy. It's stressing me out a little bit so I'm not going to take to long to write much down this week.


This is a photograph of Ben from Private Jet. I did a shoot for them at a much less stressful time in my life. In fact, that particular day changed me a lot. It's a good reminder that I need to just get my head down and take pictures.

Week 190: Post-birthday.

So my birthday was brilliant. Paris was brilliant. Spent it with the one person I care about. Things are going well for me and I'm enjoying it. I've never really decided to express myself verbally in front of people unless there isn't any reason or logic behind what I am about to say. However, with this one person, I tell them what is truly going through my mind. Whether it is nonsense or completely composed thought. I love that.

Thanks for reading


This a previously unreleased photograph of Robert from the Hackney Road shoots. He's a good guy that speaks his mind, and it's never anything negative. It reminds me of the way I'm feeling at the moment.
