    Bailey the cat will feature in the Story of the Creative photographic exhibition in New York. The exhibition will run from July 25th until September 10th. Two more of my images will also feature…along with thousands of other photographers, so it’s not too exclusive, but it’s nice to think of...

    Another treat today as I visited the mighty NHS therapy department at Cheltenham General, where I was stretched on a table, that looked positively medieval in design. “Does this hurt?” She quizzed in a self delusional way. They know it hurts. You wouldn’t be there otherwise. She also swapped my...

    Bailey insists on helping me research illustrators for a book cover, though his attention is momentarily drawn to the strange white object that his feline instincts are telling him is a wee mouse in the house…

    The art of engineering. Made in Germany. That’s the header that decorates the top of Leica’s new camera launch on the website. Ever since they teased its hard core red dot audience with the phrase, Mini M, the photographic net buzzed with anticipation of what Leica would bestow on the...
