Hidden Hut cookbook

11 May 2018

I’ve worked with the team at the Hidden Hut for the last few years, photographing their feast nights. In that time, through all winds, weathers and seasons, I’ve gathered a library of photos of life at the Hut. It’s been a real privilege to be able to work on a photography project over such a long period of time. The opportunity to capture the way the light and the atmosphere changes according to the time of year down there is a real luxury, it deserves the hype, it is truly a special place. Over this time friendships have been formed and a lot of good food has been eaten.


So, taking all this into account, it’s been very exciting to see the Hidden Hut’s cookbook come to life when it was published by Harper Collins on 3rd May. It’s a beautifully produced book with some lovely Scandi inspired layouts and sumptuous food photography from Susan Bell. It’s lovely to see that a bundle of feast night photography has made it into the book as well, forming the introduction to the book and are dotted throughout the subsequent pages, helping to set the (often smokey) scene. Congratulations to Si & Jem for producing such a beautiful book, it's been a real joy to work with you both over these last few years. My Nikon has been well and truly permeated by the smell of smoke from the Hut fires!

Enjoy a few snaps below of the book and of the lovely launch that took place in Borough Market:

Campaign photography for Invest in Cornwall

31 Jan 2018

We've been working with Invest in Cornwall for the past 18 months or so, shooting portraits, workspaces, infrastructure and landscapes around Cornwall. It's a task that has led us to all corners of the county, meeting some genuinely creative, interesting and talented people along the way. 

The most recent assignment for Invest in Cornwall has been a series of portraits for use in a new JC Decaux digital campaign that's been rolled out across some of London's busiest train stations. The aim of the campaign by Earth Branding is to drive awareness of Cornwall as a viable location for the next generation of tech businesses.


All portraits were shot in a short space of time at the beginning of January in various creative spaces belonging to Nixon Design, 3 White Hats, Radix Communications, Crowdfunder UK and Sanders Studio.


We were lucky with some lovely wintery natural light (there's been a lot of grey days!) on the days we were shooting. It made for some atmospheric shots, particularly outside Radix's Jubilee Warehouse offices in Penryn. 


Here are four portraits shot for this campaign and some snapshots of them in situ on the streets of London.
