Portrait: Edith Bowman

I recently had the pleasure of photographing TV and radio presenter Edith Bowman for the Observer Food Monthly magazine. Despite having a horrible cold on the day of the shoot she was full of energy and a joy to photograph. I felt too embarrassed to tell her that I was still in uni when she used to have her radio show 'Colin and Edith' on BBC Radio One.

Female kickboxer- Hazel Gale

Last week I undertook a commission for an experimental publication called The Good Times, put together by The Church of London design agency. It's aim was to combat the January blues. The whole thing was commissioned, written up, designed and printed in 7 days and handed out on Monday 16th, statistically the most depressing day of the year. The paper was full of good news stories and interviews with inspirational people of all kinds. You can see more about the project here. I was tasked with photographing Hazel Gale, a hypnotherapist who also competes as female kickboxer. We shot these at the gym where she trains over in East London - you can find more about Hazel here.

Portrait: Andy, Iraq War Veteran

This was part of a commission I had just before Christmas, to travel up out of London and photograph Andy, an Iraq War veteran and PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) sufferer for the Legion magazine . It was a really interesting and enlightening job, having the chance to hear someone like Andy's experience and to be able to understand a little better the subject of PTSD. One of the many reason's I really enjoy the job and the relish the opportunities it gives me; photography is only a small part of it.
