While You Were Sleeping

While you were sleeping, I was out in the dead of night looking at the stars.
I've not done any night photography in a fair while. This was more of a test shoot to go out and shoot at night properly another time, but I am really stoked with this one particular shot. It was the clearest night I have seen in a long time, stood in a field, nobody around for miles, so much love for the sticks.

Winter Wander

On a cold February day after a snowy night, I went for a wander along the Orwell river. I noticed the birds going crazy, diving into the water for food as a couple of boats went by so I paddled in as far as my wellie boots would allow and started snapping. The top photo is the result. one of my personal favorites I've ever shot, stoked!
The next three are some other shots from the same walk.

The French Alps

Almost forgot to post these photos, These should have come after Nice and Monaco! Anyway...
I spent an entire day on my trip driving through the French Alps up from Nice. On the lower half of the drive I stumbled upon some small mountain villages. But once at the very highest point I found what was easily the most breath taking scenery of the entire tour. 1604 meters above sea level, not a sound to be heard besides the shutter on my camera. Bliss.

A Belgian Dip

After Paris I made my way to Belgium to see my friend Cindy Frey. I hadn't  seen her for a year since the last Brighton tattoo convention & I hadn't been to Belgium since the summer of 2009 for her Ink Passion exhibition and book launch. When Cindy picked me up she took me straight to her newest project, her very own gallery/photo studio/tattoo shop. When I was there she had only recently acquired the building, besides the tattoo studio being in action, most of it was still a work in progress. However I think it is almost complete from what I have heard, you can check it out here, it's fucking awesome...

Here a few random snap shots from my visit, the first one is a shot of the Brussels "Hollywood" sign, the rest are at the Cindy Frey Gallery in Kortrijk, and a couple of me and Cindy after she tattooed me.

I am going to having my very first exhibition hosted by Cindy Frey, here at her gallery at the end of this year, it will open on December 1st and be open for the whole month. I am honored to have the opportunity to do it, and cant wait! More details on it all very soon.

Oui Oui Paris

Paris,  a city that I left feeling slightly confused about. Don't get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed myself there, saw and did as much of what I could in the time I had. As beautiful as this city is, it still felt very cold and impersonal, a lot like London, except a slightly ruder populous dare I say... however on the flip side of things, when I was sat in a bar listening to a beautiful fifty-something year old female jazz singer & drinking wine there was nowhere else I wanted to be. I'm sure I will be back in one day.
Any way, here are a handful of photos I took during my visit. Next stop, Belgium.

Nice & Monaco

Two beautiful places which were a pleasure to spend some time in relaxing by the water, eating, drinking and wandering. I can see why so many ex-pats live here. I stumbled across some eye catching wheels to, Ferraris, Aston Martins, Lamborghinis etc, but these ones for some reason really caught my attention...
