On Saturday 5th December we will be holding a print auction at the University of Gloucestershire to raise money for our London Degree show. It will be in the Pittville Campus gallery, with viewing beginning at 2pm. It is free to come along and we will be providing festive refreshments. I will be selling one of my Polaroid's. More information on the poster.

Deck the Halls is a Christmas decorating company and these are photographs commissioned for their website. The first set are product shots taken on a digital SLR, in the studio using a variety of lights including a Gobo light.
The second set are personal shots of staff and the tree farm taken on 35mm colour negative film using natural daylight.
For my final piece using my pinhole camera I collaborated with a close friend and illustrator Helen Ahpornsiri. Helen had made 2 3D paper masks for GF Smith Paper Promotion. She wanted these photographed on a model and for the photograph to look like a snap shot at a party. We shot on Polaroid, digital and my hand made pinhole camera.
These were taken on both the pinhole camera and a digital SLR. They were all shot on location and some with a speed light flash.

Again these formed a part of my people photography module. The brief was to choose a subculture and take portraits of them using the skills we has learnt throughout the module.
I choose bird watching for my subculture and met with the Sussex Ornithological Society for a walk at West Wittering beach.
