In one wet week of June just past I managed to clock up over 2,500km on an Irish road trip. I visited close to 25 Super Valu’s around the country and photographed Barry’s Tea shoppers for a special edition community box that will be launch nationwide this September. It was a great way to see Ireland and meet a lot of nice people.
This is an interview from a recent shoot I did for Vodafone where I had 120 minutes to make a Black & White image based around their promotion of the new range of Blackberry’s and the 120 free minutes that come with them.

The YMCA was established in 1844 in central London. Unfortunately the original building was destroyed during the Blitz but today on it’s foundations is the Central YMCA community gym with over 6,000 members of which I am one.
For the Summer advertising campaign I photographed a cross section of the membership, from the creche to seniors clubs. It was a fun project. The images will be displayed in the windows, on the web and in the London Underground stations in central London.
Recently in Cuba with fashion writer, Sally Miura, we were amazed at the fashion culture that exists in a country were foreign media is forbidden. This project has just been published in London based fashion magazine Let them Eat Cake .
These photos were taken along the Malecón which is 8km of esplanade in Cuba’s capital Havana. This walkway is a huge hangout for local youths and Florida gazers. During the day it’s a lounge while at night it offers a cheap substitute to a bar with young people dotted all along the wall with rum and salsa.
My new business cards are in hand. They were designed by Dublin based agency Make it Work.
