I am in awe of the precision skills involved in architectural model-making. 

I accompanied Laurence Day from Grain London to visit one of their beautiful models in the client's marketing suite.

Really lovely to see how the design of the model and presentation case perfectly complemented the interior design and styling.

Back in January, I shot some photos of three of the team from Hayes Davidson, who were training hard in the wintery early mornings for a big six-day 1500km bike ride with 150 other professionals from the property industry, from London to Cannes to attend the MIPIM property fair. The annual sponsored bike ride is in aid of some great charities.

A site I've worked on for the last three years. Great to see huge panels of glazing being craned into place. I even got a wave from two workers monitoring the progress.

Damson Wassailing.

Crook Morris from Kendal, Cumbria, wassail their tree in the damson orchard each January.

Banging drums and shouting to drive away any lingering evil spirits, everyone processed up to the tree. Traditional wassail songs from around the country were sung, before warm damson beer and cake were passed around. Finally, the beer was poured on the tree to "libate the roots", toasted bread hung from it's branches, and hopefully all will bring a better harvest.

A visit to document a project on Oxford Street, London. The site is in a very busy location, with works going on from basement to roof as Paragon strip, open up and rebuild the interiors. All the materials - from steel girders down to bags of cement - are being delivered through the small aperture at the centre of this shot. Impressive!

Over the last year I shot the timelapse sequences for this short film by Hayes Davidson, showing what the future skyline of London might be like. Hayes Davidson art directed and rendered the sequences with proposed buildings that we may one day see.

Some nice little image with sliders too.

Corrupted digital files..... interesting and somehow poetic.

A weekend in Kendal, visiting family and seeing the St. George's Day celebrations of Crook Morris and the Kendal Singers.
