Bristol Zombie Walk 2012 Teaser

I am very excited about editing the images I took yesterday during the Zombie Walk in Bristol. We had more sunshine on Saturday then during the whole summer so the event was a bit less apocaliptic but with a much more play ground spirit.

Here is one of my favourite photograph so far. The Rolling Zombies.

There is much more to come. I know many of you are very keen to see the pictures. I will be as fast as I can. Watch this space.

My Photograph of Bola Agbaje in the Guardian

I am very pleased to see my photograph printed in a lead article of the Guardian's G2 magazine. I took this portrait of Bola Agbaje on the last day of my work experience. I was only given fifteen minutes to complete the assignment at the London Royal Court Theatre. Thankfully Bola was a great person to work with,  open minded and willing to try different things in the short time we had together. We shot against different backgrounds and this picture was one of the last I took.

The event will be held on the 26th of February, 11-5 in the Turner House, 12 Church Street, Cardiff, CF10 1BG

It is a free entry so it could be a great day spent with celebrating books and self-publishing.
Looking forward meeting you there.

Exhibitions and Events of 2011

2011 was rather eventful for me and before the hopefully even more successful 2012 really begins I thought it would be a good idea to make an account of the achievements of the past year.

                                                    Photograph by Christian Sinibaldi for the Guardian

   This photograph was taken in November on the Guardian Student Media Awards were I was runner up in the Student Photographer of the Year category. The prize was given by David Levene and Susanna Reid. For this competition I have entered three photographs from the Sisters of Sclerder series. Here is a quick link to view the whole work

   The South West Graduate Photography Prize 2011 Show opened on the 7th of October in The Create Place in London.  It was a lovely event and was very inspiring to meet all the nominated graduates and to see the amazing works.  As a result Millennium Images have chosen two of my images into their online graduate gallery.
I also have been named as the winner of the award and won a residency with Fotonow.

One of my  photographs (Sister Ann and her jigsaw) was selected into the Foto8 Summer Show in Host Gallery in August. It felt like a great achievement and was great to see my photograph among many great works. Sister Ann has got a really good place at eye level right in the middle of a wall front of the entrance. I really liked the floor to ceiling display and it was interesting to see that in this "chaos" she was still able to reflect her piece and quiet.

I was shortlisted for the Student Street Photography Award 2011 and from the finalists' works there was an exhibition in the Orange Dot Gallery in July. It is always good to get recognition and of course to see your work on a wall. It was a privilege to be part of the first London Street Photography Festival. A sort link to the series

Sisters of Sclerder on the Hung degree show in Bristol. It was a hard work and was great to see the whole project, photographs, book and audio complimenting each other on the exhibition.
