I'm very lucky that my line of work allows me some amazing travel experiences, as well as helping me justify personal shoots in far flung places.
One of the surprising things I have learnt along the way is just how adaptable flamingoes are. I've encountered them in The Caribbean, on marshes in France, on The Galapagos Islands, 3000 meters above sea level on a salt lake in Chile, & now in Bristol!
It amazes me the endurance in the species and the vast range of habitats they live in.
Every now and then I stumble across long forgotten images in my archive. These Koala shots are from a trip I took in early 2007.
I'd discounted them at the time, the light had been tricky and I wasn't getting what I wanted from them, but fast forward to 2018 and the technology we have on hand now can bring images back to life, pulling out detail I thought was lost.
As an extra surprise, and not noticed until now, I've realised I had caught a special moment between a mother Koala and its joey.
When my friends Mark & Emma Webb contacted me to chat about doing a shoot with their new puppy Monty of course I said yes. And when I met Monty if there was such a thing as a double yes, well he had my seal of approval. Such a sweet natured pup & rather handsome to boot.
I had a great day in the studio with these lovely British Silver Tabbies. A huge thanks to the AMV team and all the crew for making it such a fun shoot.
My latest Eukanuba dog food commission is now live.
Myself and the team had a great 3 day shoot, with boats, bikes and country walks all making an appearance across the campaign.
Here's a little selection of my recent pet food commissions.
With a bit of studio and a bit of location photography, with dogs and three generations of cats, it's been a great start to the year.
Have you spotted my operatic sheep friend around London?
Commissioned by Rose Design.
After a very busy year it's great to have a moment to head to the editing suite and be able to share a new personal project with you all.
Joining back up with animal handler Mark Amey, my creative collaborator Emma Taylor and with the help of Leica's Sven Kupfer and Thomas Schmidt; with a Leica S007 in hand I set about photographing a beautiful and inspiring set of owls.
With an Ashy Faced Owl, a Scops Owl, Snowy Owl, Eagle Owl, Little Owl and a Barn Owl to work with it was great to see how the camera effortlessly brought out incredible detail in the feathers, especially when it came to subtle and unusual tonal range on our Ashy Faced friend.
I hope you enjoy looking at the project as much as I enjoyed shooting it!
