A big thank you to all the wonderful teams I had the pleasure of working with in the extraordinary year that was 2020. I know 2021 is already proving to be a challenge, but you can’t dampen the creative spirit and I believe passion and positivity will help see us through.

Wishing you a healthy, happy, and truly inspirational new year.

I'm pleased and honored to have my photograph of the Buddhist Monk
Emma Slade chosen for the shortlist of The Portrait of Humanity Award.
This is a new global award founded by the British Journal of Photography
and Magnum Photos.  My photograph will be included in the accompanying
book and winners will be announced at the launch event on May 23rd.  

The picture unfolded between takes on a portrait assignment for Perfect
Bound magazine. The Long Goodbye shows a genuine moment of emotion as
Buddhist Monk & charity founder Emma Slade says farewell to her friend
Fitch, the graceful Great Dane who sadly passed away a few weeks after
the photograph was taken.  
Previously a London investment banker Emma turned to Buddhism after
being kidnapped and held hostage at gunpoint whilst on a business trip
to Jakarta.

Many thanks again to Emma, and Fitch's owner Michelle Parker.
Also Madeleine Smith, Julie Read & Betty Brigstocke-Williams.
