Team Underground MMA

My friend Danielle West of Team Underground MMA and New Wave Academy asked me if  I would be able to take some more shots of her for a fight that she may be doing in Asia for her sponsors  I'd had a day off on Thursday and suggested that it would be a good idea to fit her [...]

Crystal Palace Underpass

I took a trip to the underpass last night, its still very securly locked up, however I have no doubt that there is a way in somehow. There's currently a campaign underway locally to see if the location can be used for some sort of community space, gallery or bar. Either fo these would be [...]

Dakhla Attitude #2

Here's the camp (cheap seats) at Dakhla Attitude, I think that these may have been replaced by proper brick chalets this year. Although that accommodation was somewhat sparse, it suited me down to the ground, simple and adequate, after all all I did here was sleep. Once I found out where the drafts were coming [...]

J.C. Santana for Fighting Fit Magazine

This weekend I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot Juan Carlos Santana for Fighting Fit Magazine. I received a call in the week out of the blue to go and do a shoot of J.C. performing some exercises with a resistance band for a series of instructional pictorial features in FFMag. Although I [...]

Terres Rouge – Red Earth

I don't often include images of the people I explore with in my pics, but decided this was a good one of my friend RomanyWG, his son Ellis is sneaking into shot on the right too. It gives an idea of the scale of the facility we were exploring. The concrete structures were tainted with [...]

Terres Rouge

Terres Rouge is so named due to the red earth that covers this area. I huge industrial area ion the border of France and Luxembourg. There isn't that much left now, a few of these silos and  a powerstation remain, the rest is flattened. I particularly wanted to visit the power station again on this [...]

Italian Hospital B – The Last Song

Here's an image fron the reception of an Italian hospital. The hospital itself didn't look as if it had been empty for very long, this part on the other hand was stripped and empty, a little decay was vivible, but the property was watertight so not too dangerous. I heard that a few weeks after [...]

Private Residence #2 Kitchen

Here's the super-slick kitchen at the WixonGibbs home. All the fittings are top class along with the finish. This room would be unrecognisable from twelve months ago. all the walls have been removed and replaced with a large airy open plan kitchen and living area.

Dolittle at The Hope and Anchor

I've been a fan of Dolittle for YEARS, possibly the first time I saw Ange play was at Reading Festival somewhere around '91 in his prior incarnation as EAT front man, my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I think that they played twice that year, once on the main stane and as a stand [...]

In Pursuit of Rare Meat

I'd seen this mammal in RomanyWG's excellent book Out Of Sight and was pleased to find it hidden away in the Tannery. I shot some normal images straight on, but when I walked through the door Looking back I really liked the framing of this. The Deer looks startled, as if it's heard me and [...]

In Triplicate – Sea Creative

The great blue walls in the tannery provide an awesome canvas for the artists Sea Creative and Vine (right). Pretty much the whole of the factory wall is covered by the work of only three or four artists, their own private play area. The almost monotone colour set that has been chosen works really well [...]

Urbex Palace – How Not to Create a 360 Panorama

This was one of the highlights of the recent trip to Italy. I knew after seeing several images of this room that it would be awesome to create a 360 here. I wasn't going to post this image as I'm not happy with it on SO many levels, but decided in the end that it [...]

Hospital C – Dreaming Of Escape

Another wheelchair from Hospital C - there were loads of these about and I am sure its not the last one I'll put up from here. This was pretty much the penultimate shot that I took at this location, and was a bit rushed. The initial image wasn't well composed and somewhat wonky so I [...]

UE Palace – The Acid House

Here's one of the most colourful rooms in the UE Palace, its totally bonkers as I am sure you can see. I have no idea what the designers were on when they came up with this Moorish influenced room, but I'll have a pint of whatever they were on please! The image was quite hard [...]

Hunting Lodge – Main Stairs

After seeing where we were going on our day out I did a search to see what to expect and came across the stairs in the lodge. Pretty much everyone who goes here takes this picture and its hard to do something 'different' really so I just went with the flow and shot this. I [...]

Lavoir à Charbon A – Pincer Action

It wasn't all manor houses and hospitals on our recent tour of Italy. On the way we travelled through France and Luxembourg, stopping off at a rather tasty coke washing plant. This was an interesting one as the site that it is on is live with plenty of people around. thankfully we entered unnoticed and [...]

Centrale Thermique – Take It Away

I've been doing a lot of panoramas recently and although I really like doing them I wanted to get back to something more my usual style. I wanted PIPES this evening. I was searching through my images from last summer and came across this from Centrale Thermique, its a powerstation in Europe, disused of course. [...]

Tate Entertaining

I've done some work for Tate Catering a few times in the past and was lucky enough to get asked back last week. Tate Catering do the food for The Tate, both Tate Modern and Tate Britain, its generally high end cuisine accompanied equally fantastic wine. I really enjoy shooting this sort of thing, It's [...]

Royal Exchange and Bank in The City Of London

This is the image that I went out on Sunday to capture. There's not much to say about it apart from I'm very happy. It's a testament to planning really, I knew what I wanted, where to shoot and that there would be little in the way of either pedestrian or vehicular traffic at night [...]

London Wall At Night

I've been pining to get out and shoot some images over the last week or two. Trawling through past shots and discovering images that I've not jet processed is fun, but no substitute for getting out there and pressing the shutter release button. I think there is some excitement in getting home and sticking that [...]

Hellingly Asylum – Bricks and Mortar

The weather had been inclement throughout the explore and as we exited the main complex of the asylum it started to rain adding to our mood. The destruction of the hall had almost completed and we both knew that within the next week destruction would be complete. Both of us got on with our work [...]
