This is Etch House by Fraher Architects and their sister joinery company Shape London. Lizzie and Joe - the directors of Fraher - gutted their Victorian terraced house and totally reconfigured the floors, walls and staircase to create a completely different space. It was fascinating to shoot something so different within the familiar confines of a South London terraced house (very familiar, 'cause I live in one!). There is more about the project in a write up on Dezeen: https://www.dezeen.com/2017/11/08/etch-house-fraher-architects-renovation-extension-london-uk/. Lots more photos below...Read More
A couple of weeks ago I shot a real feel-good project: local, environmentally-aware and beautiful. Chris Newman lives a couple of streets away from me, and over the last six years he has been transforming a typically cold and leaky Victorian house into a high-performance, warm, energy efficient family home.Read More
A pretty special assignment - taking photos of the rising sun from within Box Tunnel on the London-Bristol mainline. The tunnel was designed by Brunel, completed in 1841, and legend has it that the sun shines all the way through the 1.83 mile tunnel on his birthday (April 9th). I joined an expedition organised by GWR to see first hand if that is true.
Results were inconclusive,: the sun certainly aligns with the tunnel, and if it wasn't for the light mist it may have shone all the way through. The photos were featured in several national papers the next day.Read More
I recently did a shoot for Café Viva in Peckham (www.cafeviva.co.uk), just around the corner from my house. They have just had a refurbishment and will use the photos for their forthcoming website. I can personally recommend the banana bread with yoghurt, which I happily consumed a few seconds after photographing it.
I was in Margate earlier this week. As we drove into town in the late afternoon, the sky was a leaden grey and it was raining lightly. I walked along to the Turner Contemporary with my camera thinking that the light grey building against the dark grey sky and mid grey sea would be a rhapsody in grey-ness. But then the sun dipped below the clouds and set the sky on fire.
