The Importance of Looking

I went to a life drawing class the other day, taught by the talented Dan Whiteson.

I forgot how incredibly difficult it is and was reminded of the importance of looking and seeing - something as a photographer I should probably do more of.

The Photocopy Club – London Show

On a bitterly cold Thursday evening a few weeks ago, I squeezed into a packed Beach London for The Photocopy Club‘s first show in the capital. I’d submitted some work a while ago and didn’t know if it would feature or not, so it was nice to see a small print from Heart-Shaped Box up on the wall.

Big thanks to the Photocopy Club team for all their work in setting up and running the whole thing – which, by the sounds of it, is turning into quite a large operation. They’re currently taking submissions for the next Brighton show for all those who are interested.

Guest Talk

Today I had the pleasure of being asked to do a guest talk back at Winchester School of Art - I had the impossibly large shoes to of Peter Kennard to fill, who had to reschedule at the last minute through illness.

So, after hastily putting together a slideshow of my work, as well as timely advice for Final Major Projects and applying for MA’s, I crossed my fingers and desperately hoped I’d be able to fill an hour’s worth of time…

As with all these things, I rambled on for more than enough and had to rush the end a little… Hopefully the current students got something out of it – I thank them for not grilling me too intensely as I’m a total newcomer to the ‘lecturing’ game. I was only sitting in the very same hall about 18 months ago, so it was a little surreal to be down at the front this time, but it was great to be asked and a really decent experience to get under my belt.

Downturn (revisited)

I’ve been spending some time scanning some old negs recently, and came across a few shots I’d totally forgotten about – a couple of which may make it into the Downturn edit so far…
