Ok, I put my hands up, I've been terrible at blogging in 2015. I have been lucky enough to shoot lots of film and just haven't had the time to share everything I intended. So I thought I'd put together a little mix of some of my favourite work from the year and, I promise, I'll be better in 2016! Happy new year!
Back in June, I teamed up with the wonderful Katy Orme from Apartment Apothecary, to photograph an event she was organising with Charlotte from Lotts & Lots. It was sponsored by the online interiors community, At Mine, where members can share photography of their own homes - if you're a fan of interior design then do check it out. It all took place at the crafting heaven of Home Made London and was a floral wreath workshop attended by some rather special bloggers and creatives. Flowers + clever people = lots of pretty pictures. Here's how it looked.

My lovely friend and talented stylist and blogger, Katy Orme, contacted me a little while ago. Along with the very clever Charlotte from Lotts & Lots, they were starting a monthly blog series called Styling The Seasons. It's all about observing seasonal changes and trying to reflect those changes in our homes. Next week, the pair will be hosting an event at Liberty to launch the project and I'll be photographing it, so, since I love interiors, I thought I'd get involved too. Now, I'm clearly not a stylist, so I wanted to my focus to be more about light than about props and decor. This October has been a great month for autumn light; even though our days are shorter we have had some wonderful sunshine and the warm weather has brought us vivid colours that make waving goodbye to summer a little easier. My sitting room is bathed in that sun all day and my favourite time is when it just starts dipping behind the chimneys, when it's at its most golden. So here's a little corner of my home that always gets the last of that light and hopefully celebrates a little of October too.
Just a few still life photographs from a little project I am working on. Film is Ilford Delta 3200 a favourite of mine at the moment. I love the grain and tone of this film. Developed and scanned by the UK Film Lab
Not to sound all smug and generally quite annoying and all that but working for myself is really rather wonderful. It's days like today, when the drizzle is relentless, that I cherish being at home and just pottering, only my camera and the radio for company. So just thought I'd post a few nice ones of what I get up to when most of you are on planet Office.
