About The Artwork

This image was created for a series of food portraits shot for The Sunday Times magazine. It's about the relationship between the figures as I call them, like they are waiting for a subway/at a party making light conversation & so on.

I shoot upstairs & live below the shop with my long term partner & our little boy, Dylan.

I was asked recently to submit a piece about my approach to what I do, here it is:

Theres a point at which the object in front of the camera should transcend how its generally perceived, either by design, serendipity or a fortuitous mixture of both of the above.
I visualize my ideas on paper first, trying to get rid of the obvious and develop a more interesting way of seeing the subject or in this case combining unlikely elements within the same image so they appear naturally linked.
Mostly its about observation, what makes this object so special, what may have been overlooked that I can see when I look closely or simply try to see it in a different light.
Many of my images may appear quite different because of this approach; its the subject matter thats the hero, not necessarily a particular brand technique imposed on everything regardless. Sometimes you get it right, on other occasions the definitive shot eludes you.
Its constantly getting back on the horse, you never truly know when youve taken your best ever shot so you keep shooting.Its where the drive comes from, that one glorious day you may achieve perfection.
