I made a promise to myself that this year I would put my work out into the world more, and whilst I think I did this with my commercial work it’s time my self directed projects took centre stage. After some help and guidance from someone I now consider a mentor I am close to officially releasing my latest series.
I have however been entering images from my upcoming series ‘Peninsula’ into relevant competitions. I’m grateful for opportunities to submit my work. I’m incredibly grateful that currently I am in a position to be able to afford the cost of entry and I’m proud to be alongside some amazing photographers in the Peoples Choice Category of Feature Shoots Emerging Photographer competition. This stage of the competition is based around an online vote, the images gathering the most 'likes’ winning a prize, before the official competition judges start the task of selecting grand prize winners.

I’m pleased at my current progress with the 'Peninsula’ project, especially that the end is in sight and the work will soon be seen and out in the open. Currently I’m fine tuning a book layout which will no doubt be self published and also making plans for exhibitions.
So as one project draws to a near plans begin for new work. I’ve been busy enquiring about spaces and generating budgets and promotional material for a small portraiture project which will take place in the village in which I live. As a result a lot of the work I’ve been reading about or seeking has been portraiture based. Two of my favourites are featured below.
