Like most self-perpetuating media nodes, pictures often form part of my work, particularly in my blogging. I use a mixture of analogue, DSLR and iPhone. I mostly specialise in offbeat landscapes, long exposures and portraiture.

Portrait projects

Over the past few years, I’ve run a project at Green Man Festival, taking portrait photographs of festival goers there and collecting snippets of information from them; stories, anecdotes or festival advice. The idea was to create a picture of the festival through the people who attend it; a narrative threaded by faces from different places, all coming together to enjoy one beautiful event.

I’ve profiled hundreds of people at the festival – all their images are collated on the We Are Green Man Facebook page.
