Mercury Rising

Recently, I have been shooting lots of photos of the upcoming band Mercury Rising at their studio and at their (amazing) gigs! Thought it was about time I shared some of my shots with you all :]

And a few little scans/screenshots of where the photos can be seen...

A revelation in the light of day

Back in March I was asked by a magazine to shoot an editorial for their next issue. The team I worked with have been wonderful ever since keeping the photographs hidden and offline while the publication date was pushed further and further away. We have now had to come to the decision to withdraw from publication as an unseen editorial, which means we can finally share the images with you! Hopefully the publication will one day go ahead (and if it does I'll be posting links all over the place for you all to see!). It is strange how far this shoot feels from my usual work, even though the only real difference was the theme, but here it is anyway. Thank you to Twiglet, Lyanne, Kate and Aisling for making the shoot what it was. Shot in Sheffield, Yorkshire. Title from 'No Light, No Light' by Florence and the Machine, because it is stuck in my head :]


And a little shot of Twiglet after the main shoot in her stunning custom made dress :]

Journey through the Peaks.

I'm pretty sure I've become addicted to posting photographs online. It has been odd not sharing a daily photo, though I've still been snapping plenty of them! Here are a little selection of the photographs I took on my journey through the Peak District today in the fog. Hope you like them :]
