NEW Portrait of Photographer Martyn J Adelman

I had just got one of my Hasselblad A12 film backs repaired by the good people at The Camera Museum in London. Now I just needed to check all was well so asked good friend Martyn J Adelman to sit for me. He's a great photographer, by the way, as well as a top friend. I shot one roll of Ilford HP5+ and this was my favourite. Thanks Max!

NEW Portrait of Sergei Podobedov

I finally managed to photograph the very talented concert pianist Sergei Podobedov on location in Crystal Palace. There wasn't much light in the hall so I had to push the film two stops to 1600 ISO. Thankfully the negatives came out ok. Here's my favourite shot from the day.

Max Porter in 7 Nights Supplement

Really chuffed to see my portrait of the talented writer Mr Max Porter being used in an interview in Israel's '7 Nights' Supplement. Just a shame I can't read Hebrew....

Portrait of Changli Zhang

Here's my recent portrait of my good friend Changli Zhang shot on the Hasselblad on location in Southwark, London. I experimented with the printing and whacked up the contrast to Grade 5 to make it more punchy. I really like the results and will probably do more high contrast printing for future black & white portraits.

NEW portrait of Emma Rice

Finally got round to printing up the black & white portrait from my session with the very talented Emma Rice, Artistic Director of Shakespeare's Globe, London. Emma was very patient with me and gave me plenty of time, even though it was cold out there up on the roof. She put her lovely coat on and I quickly asked to shoot a roll of black & white. Thankfully she agreed!

NEW Colour Portraits of Amanda

A few months ago I went to Greenwich Park with my Hasselblad, a roll of out-of-date Kodak 64T film and the lovely Amanda. I wanted to do another roll of portraits with Amanda and cross-process the results. And here they are. I quite like them....I think she liked them too.
