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.

Greece has been in the news a lot recently and I wanted to show my support for the Greek people and their brave stand against the nonsensical rhetoric that is 'austerity'. Last year, I was lucky enough to photograph several destination weddings on a few of their lovely islands and so thought I'd post a few shots from my travels, just as a small tribute to a beautiful and dignified nation.

This summer I was lucky enough to be given a ticket for the tour of one of London Underground's abandoned stations - The strand at Aldwych. It really was quite an extraordinary experience; familiar yet utterly strange, we wandered down the tunnels, stood on closed platforms and learnt of the short but rich history of the debunked tube station. Awesome and slightly eerie, I have to say. Despite the low light and slight underexposures, I rather like what I took down there. Although most of us take it for granted today, the network's architecture and iconic design really is timelessly beautiful.
