Had a lovely commission shoot with @iamannajohnson the other day so thought I would share. . . I caught the bug that’s been going round, so far my nose is just acting like a tap, anyone else that’s had it, how long should I expect this bull**** to last? Cause I’m already bored of blowing my nose 50 times in the space of 20 minutes. Help. Me. . . Shot with my @canonuk 5Dmkii and 85mm 1.4 and edited with @adobe @photoshop and @lightroom
(A diary entry) . . Victim. Villain. Victim. Villain. I treat myself like shit and then waste away crying about it. So what solutions are there?. . I need to get out more, clearly. I need to keep training. I need to seek out shoot opportunities. I need to seek out paid work. I need to just shoot for the fun of it, but really shoot something I really want to shoot instead of what's easy or what might get me likes. I need to stop looking at other peoples work and feeling like crap. I need to actually use what I have and actually seriously USE it. I need to reach out to more people, share more work, maybe write some blog posts. I need to take more GIANT photos. I need to take more photos with MEANING cause that is what I love. I need to save money, feel secure. I need to be nice to Will and the people around me. All the people. I need to let them live there lives without judgement in my head. I need to live my own life and not berate myself for it. I need to be kind. Concentrate on other people, Will yes, but not just Will. Reach out, make people feel good! I need to go and see Rosie, to see her, to drive, to shoot with her! I want to shoot more people I admire, and I need to make an effort to do it, even if nothing happens, even if I feel foolish. I need to STOP SHOPPING! Or at least, if I buy something, I need to fucking wear it! Not leave it one the side till a day where I feel 'good' enough to wear it. I need to eat better but also enjoy pizza and cake sometimes. I need to NOT FEEL SHIT ABOUT CAKE but also not make myself feel shit by constantly eating cake. I need balance and to feel positive about that balance. I need to train my hair not to turn into a greasy mess after a day. I need to not wash it for a while. I need to not pick my face and let it heal and then I need to have some makeup-less days even if that means I have to look like crap sometimes. I need to watch the sunset on my own sometimes, just me and my music and the sky. I need to drive sometimes, go home, home where I love the landscape. I need to do all these things so that when the house that Will is doing up is ready, it won’t be all I have, I’ll have all these other things too.
I made a playlist yesterday full of songs to sing at the top of my lungs, I mean to the point where I’ve lost my voice a little today. I truly recommend it 👍🏼 here is more of @wonderful_u from the other day and that pretty light. Anyone else not only f***ing thrilled that January is over but also feeling spring in the air? Heard it’s snowing next week so I’m sure that feeling will be short lived but I’m enjoying the light falling through the window while it’s here. . .

Throw back to the first confidence shoot I ever did with @superlativelylj - still adore these photos. Laura started me shooting chicks naked to help empower them and accept themselves and I can’t thank her enough cause they are one of my favourite things to shoot. I still do it, so if you wanna book a confidence shoot then drop me an email 👍🏼
Here is the frustrating yet wonderful thing about life, yesterday I was feeling so blue I cried 3 times and felt like I was in a hole, today I had the most wonderful day with @wonderful_u you, the light was magical, we laughed and vented and just had a really great time, and just now I spent the most money I ever have on something other than a car, I bought my first sofa. This is one of the most ‘adult’ things I have ever done, and even though the house it will live in won’t be done for a good few months yet, I know that when it is we will have the most beautiful @madedotcom sofa to sit on, to fall asleep watching a movies on, to eat our meals on, to live on! I am so happy today I can’t stand myself!
Sharing this gem from the summer with @smorgle as people were loving it over on my stories ☺️ made up a little tag so sharing loads of shots on there at the moment, go have a look! . . Taken with my @canonuk 5Dmkiii, @sigmauk 35mm 1.4 and edited with @adobe @photoshop and @lightroom
Here’s the thing, I never really liked women that much, they always intimidated me, my whole life I’ve pretty much only had male friends and I liked it, I liked the simplicity, I liked the banter and the silly adventures. I found women to be hurtful sometimes, my female friendships always seemed, well, complicated. In short I never understood why women always spoke so highly of their friendships with women, until I met Megs and in her I finally understood! I still value my male friends, I think they aren’t celebrated enough, but finding Megs I got it, I do feel safe with her, I feel encouraged and supported and on top of that just have fun with her! I get it now and @wonderful_u showed me, and I know, in her, I found a female friend for life. . . Shot with my @canonuk 5Dmkiii and @sigmauk 35mm 1.4.
