This is a shot from my continuing Wall Of Death project with Luke Fox’s Original Wall of Death shot last summer. This was all about trying to find a different way of looking at the wall and how it might feel for the riders. I spent a week on the road with the family and this was on the final day. In-between shows while Luke rode around the top of the wall I laid on the bank at the bottom facing up in an attempt to capture the feeling of the speed they travel at with the graphic nature of the wall and canopy.

Portrait of Author and TV Chef Paul Merrett for The Caterer shot back in November. We arrived at the pub at about 9 o'clock on a Wednesday morning, thinking that it would be easy to shoot in various areas inside to get a handful of environmental portrait options before people started coming in for lunch. As it turned out The Victoria pub, serves  coffee and pastries and is adjacent to a school so we walked into a packed pub first thing in the morning. After an hour or so, a couple of coffees and a croissant a few areas became free and we were able to shoot 3 inside, 2 outside and this setup in the corner of the restaurant. Thanks to @hospitality_media and @thecaterermag  for the commission. #portraits #editorialportrait #blackandwhite #hasselblad #profoto

An unpublished image from a shoot back in October for @buzzfeed.
I was a fly on the wall at Sussex Uni Conservative club and then at the end of the meeting shot some portraits of the group's leaders. If I'm being honest, after agreeing to the shoot I was a bit torn on how to approach it and remember feeling quite uncomfortable going into the shoot. 
I don't think I've previously come across a situation where my own prejudices had an opportunity to play such a big part in how they would be portrayed. In the end I decided to give little or no direction and keep everything simple allowing for me just to record my experience of them on the day, which culminated in this chap dressing up as Theresa May and leaping into another of the subjects arms.
Thanks to @lauramgallant and @mrtimlane for the commission.
