Since I began my driving job in summer 2012 I have driven an incredible 250,000 miles, enough to take me past the moon, if I could find a road there!
Over that period of time I have taken more than 50,000 photos and am still holding my trusty camera, looking out for the next one.
wish me luck......
Through hard work, sheer determination and perhaps some luck, I managed to get a job, driving with one of the largest private hire company’s in London. For me, this was an opportunity of a lifetime, allowing me to discover London and see the city through the eyes of the people who live there.
Ironically, Londoners are fairly uncomplimentary about their city and I have heard my fair share of complaints about London from them, but to me it remains the place that gave me a second chance: and is now the place which I am honoured to call home. Its streets enrapture me, and I cannot refrain from appreciating all the magic and beauty that the city has to offer.
That’s why I decided to try and immortalise it with my camera: to capture the every day wonders, which we take for granted.
Camera: SONY A77

About My project:
The idea for the project came to me in the summer of 2014. I was fascinated by the way that cities evolve over time, taking on the characteristics of the people who live in them and I wanted to represent this inevitable march of change in visual form. This took me on a wonderful journey through London’s streets.
All art is sustained by the people who patronise it and I am eternally grateful for every piece of encouragement that I have ever received. This is why I wanted to self-publish this work, because I want to have a connection to every single person who experiences it with me.
Finally, a photographer is only as good as the thing that he is shooting, and I am fortunate enough to have a wonderful subject: the ever-changing city of London. The aim of my Photo Book is to capture the essence of life and change, and I hope that you enjoy book half as much, as I have enjoyed working on this project, because if you do, my mission will be complete.
BOOK COMING OUT IN AUGUST
