URBAN TEXTURES – The start of a new collection

HI All

Here is a sneak peak at the new Urban Textures Collection I am working on. I must admit to having a bit of an obsession for photographing old structures, facades, roofs, scaffolding basically anything that creates a interesting patterns, shadows and textures in the urban environment. Any guesses where this, soon to be demolished, London Roof Structure is?

Also would love to know what you think. Please comment and share if you have a moment

Also all these sample are for sale, if you fancy an original piece, signed. £50 for 30 x 40 cm signed print (we can also print at 40 x 50, or 50 x 70 cm) All Professionally printed on highest quality Hahnemuhle German Etching 310grms museum grade fine art paper using Ultrachrome K3 archival Inks

MY LITTLE OBSESSION WITH SIGNAGE

Ok I have set myself the challenge of editing some of the hundreds and hundreds of photographs that are languishing in the brains of my laptop. I think some of them deserve better.

So this first collection ‘SIGNAGE’ indulges my little obsession with all things signage, the older and shabbier the better!. This section is from San Francisco and a little bit of California sunshine certainly helps. All images have had some layers and filters added to give bit more depth of colour and texture.

How do I Love Thee? With more awesome people…Bronagh Kennedy

A big thank you to Dissemble Design for this lovely blog post. x

Last week I braved the elements in the wake of St. Jude’s storm and journeyed into Craft Central to meet the wonderfully talented artist and photographer, Bronagh Kennedy, in her lovely studio in Clerkenwell. We chatted about work and Bronagh’s background and she showed me lots of her lovely images.

London’s vivid scenery is the starting point for Bronagh’s creations and her work is full of the iconic and recognisable but the best bit: the twist in the view. She plays around using various digital techniques to produce wholly new images that, while still recognisable, subvert the familiar and allow for something a little playful and a lot lovely. She showed me some new images that she is “having fun with” and we talked about how and why she ventured into this brave new world of art.

Always a keen artist and creative, Bronagh started her professional life as an…

A RECENT COMMISSION FOR THE ISLAND NEWQUAY

I was very lucky this summer to be commissioned by a private client to create some bespoke artwork for The Island Newquay. If you don’t know it its a wonderful seaside town in Cornwall and the site was the iconic Island with its dramatic suspension bridge to a private island retreat.

I flew down and spent a couple of days photographing the site before heading back to the studio to create the bespoke artwork. Although I normally photograph architecture and cityscapes this was a great opportunity to translate my technique to a new subject matter.

I was exceptionally lucky with the weather which is a bit of a must to get the best shots, crisp shadows and a sharp silhouette of the subject. Here are some images of the process from photoshoot to finished artwork. The prints are now happily installed in the clients house which by the way is available for rent through http://www.uniquehomestays.com
