When I visited Venice with Mum in May of 2011, Mark loaned me his Holga and some rolls of colour and B&W film, although neither of us thought to have a run-through of the camera and its’ workings before I went.

I am a member of two of the specialist groups within the Royal Photographic Society, the Visual Art Group and the Digital Imaging Group, and both of these have annual members exhibitions, so naturally I entered some images into both.

Here is a photographic journey into the heart of what was once someone’s home, an intimate port[......]
In September 2009, I spent ten days alone in New York City, staying in a small self-catering apartment on the Upper East Side. While I was there, I kept an online blog, to amuse myself in the evenings, and to entertain my friends and family back home. This is the book of the blog, with man[......]
Having spent all afternoon on this image, I have decided once more to share how I did it, and which individual images went into making the final artwork.
