Unlike the rest of the images, this collection has already been exhibited both at Brick Lane and UCA Farnham, as part of my end of year degree show. They have all been taken through Perspex, inspired by my wheelchair ‘tray’ images...

 

 

My frozen leaf photographs I rediscovered from a university project, which I had never used before. It has been really exciting looking back through these images and remembering how I took them...

 

 

These photographs came about as a result of a project I did to illustrate a musical composition I wrote after seeing a Barn Owl. I was so moved by the experience that I felt I had to compose a piece of music about the encounter... 

 

 

All these images believe it or not, were taken right in the heart of London, at Barnes Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust (WWT) nature reserve. I strongly believe that wildlife can be seen almost anywhere if you look hard enough and I feel that few things encapsulate this better than this project...

 

 

The images in this collection were taken in my garden, which is probably one of my best-loved places to take photographs. When I first got into photography I used to spend hours just driving round the garden taking photographs of whatever happened to catch my eye...

 

 

I have always had a strong connection with Wisley as a place of inspiration and somewhere I find rest. I particularly enjoy focusing on the small details that most people overlook...

 

 

These images were inspired by a workshop that I attended at Wisley Gardens, with the acclaimed photographer Andy Small; who has been a big inspiration...
