I met singer songwriter, Kojo, nearly 20 years ago and we’ve kept in contact ever since. When Kojo reached out for an updated shoot I thought it would be a great chance to catch up and shoot at the same time. Kojo was flying off to Barbados the following day so time was crucial and luckily for him the stars alined and we met up on a very wet day in Nottinghill.
Kojo hasn’t changed a bit in 20 years and he was vibing to do some shots together. I did a few shots against some wicked wall paper in a pub to get us both warmed up, followed by some street shots around the neighbourhood.
I wanted to get more out of Kojo and break his hard look so as we took shelter from the rain under the doors of what use to be the club Subterranea, I asked him to start shaking his dreds around. The results were amazing!

The Revenger:An Unromantic Comedy
Throughout the whole of July I was employed as stills photographer for this low budget UK feature film.
Written and directed by Mark Murphy starring Rob Kazinsky, Samantha Barks, Tony Way, Rachael Hurd-Wood, Ed Speleers, Ivan Kaye and Anna Chancellor.
Rare for me to be employed for the entire length of the production but with a great cast and cohesive crew I enjoyed every second of it.
Here are a few of my favourite shots.

Hidden Charms The Cellar Oxford
Finally managed to hook up with the best unsigned band on the circuit.
One of the last gigs on their UK tour the band did not disappoint the punters with an incredible performance at the Cellar Bar in Oxford. 17/02/17
As their hair has grown longer over the years so has their music evolved into an inevitable progression of pure self indulgent hedonistic, electric rock.
