Escape Wavefold






Last weekend I went back to Scotland after two years. On Saturday morning I met Kimberley Grant in Edinburgh and went for a walk trying to find some locations. I had worked with Kimberley before when I was living in Glasgow and we shot the Graveyard Girl session inspired in M83. This time I wanted to shoot in Glasgow again but finally couldn't so decided to do it in Edinburgh, I wasn't sure if we would be able to find some nice spots but ended up in the abandoned buildings you can see in the photos, they were amazing.

Kimberley Grant also takes photos and has made the Touris.ms guide to Glasgow, so make sure you check it!

There are some more photos from the shoot, if you wanna see them head to my Flickr or Cargo Collective.

Beside the sea - Article Magazine Issue 03




Published in Article Magazine Issue 03
Models: Cally Higginbottom & Leila Walker
Styling: Emma Pud
Production: Ben Dunmore

First of all it seems like everytime I upload an image here the quality is even worse than the last time, is someone else having the same problem?

These are part of a editorial I shot for Article Magazine before Easter. The mag is out now and you can get it for free in Sheffield, Leeds, Manchester, Liverpool, Nottingham, London, Glasgow and Edinburgh, you can check the stocklist here.

If you're interested in checking more photos from the shoot (and in definitely better quality) you can take a look at my Cargo Collective or Flickr

Swatch MTV Playground

Here's another video from Swatch MTV Playground. I'm sure you've heard about Rankin, he has portrayed celebrities as Madonna, Katy Perry or even Prince William, as well as being the founder of Dazed & Confused. In this video he explains why you need to love your work if you're doing something creative and what it takes to become a successful photographer, quite an inspirational advice.
If you wanna take a look at more of the interviews with Rankin you can do it here, I wouldn't miss them! And you can also take a look at this talk with singer Kelis.

Toxteth





Yesterday I went for a walk around my neighbourhood, the guy in the photos is Russell Frew. I don't know why the portrait orientation photos have so low quality in here, anyway, there are 12 more photos from yesterday. If you are interested (and wanna see them in bigger quality) you can take a look at them at my Cargo Collective or Flickr. By the way, going back to Scotland tomorrow after two years!!

Touris.ms

A few days ago I was featured in Touris.ms, the website launched some weeks ago and when I first saw it loved the idea: city guides with a focus on the images. There are amazing photographers featured and believe me when you look at the guides you will want to go to each of those places.

So when the contacted me for doing the Liverpool guide I couldn't say no. I also added some places you definitely have to take a look at if you come here and some music and a book for reading while you stay in Liverpool.

Hope you enjoy it.

Robertus Fanta 2011


I took this photo last Sunday at James Blake gig and thought it was perfect for promoting the Robertus Fanta grants
. For participating in the photography grant you need to submit some photos that remind you of Fanta (I chose this one because the colours are similar to the ones in a Fanta can) and then submit a video talking about the photos and how you got inspired, how did you take them or anything you come up with. If you need some help you can take a look at some of the videos that people have already uploaded here.

Remember that you can also participate in two other categories: personal shopper and beta tester. You can find all the information here. There are 6 prizes for each category and all of them consist on a trip to NYC to learn more about your type of grant during one week.

Start making your videos and best of luck!


Saqué esta foto de James Blake en el concierto que dió el domingo pasado y he pensado que es perfecta para promocionar las Becas Robertus Fanta. Para participar en la beca de fotografía sólo tienes que cargar en la página fotos que hayas hecho que te recuerden a Fanta (yo elegí esta porque los colores son similares a los de las latas de Fanta) y luego subir un vídeo hablando sobre las fotos, cómo las hiciste o cuál fue tu inspiración...Si necesitas ayuda puedes echarle un ojo a los vídeos de los demás participantes ´aquí.

Recuerda que también puedes participar en otras dos categorías: personal shopper y beta tester. Toda la información aquí. Hay 6 premios para cada categoría y cada uno de ellos consiste en un viaje a Nueva York para aprender más sobre tu categoría elegida durante una semana.

¡Anímate a participar y mucha suerte!
