I was interviewed by Viva Brighton for their January Edition. It’s first the of a new series of interviews / project highlights which is a collaboration between MiniClick and Viva Brighton. Each month MiniClick will source a Brighton based photo project to be featured in the magazine and Viva will interview the photographer. MiniClick organises free photography talks / events in Brighton and further afield.
If I am in Brighton on Christmas day I will always try and document the Christmas day swim you can see a selection of images for previous swims in my portfolio here. Brighton beach was meant to be closed to swimmers on Christmas day 2014 and the Christmas Brighton day swim canceled. In 2012 and 2011 the council / sea front office took the decision to close the beach because of bad weather to prevent people from swimming, no one tried enter the water in those years. In 2014 the decision was taken to close the beach two weeks before Christmas day. It turned out that Christmas 2014 was sunny and the sea was flat so small group of people went swimming despite the beach closure.
I’ve been shooting Christmas day swims science 2005 you can see a selection of images for previous swims in my portfolio here.
Since 2000 Nigel Swallow has put together a Calendar of Brighton and Hove photographs which has become a bit of Brighton institution.
The calendar is comprised of the work of local Brighton Photographers, this years calendar includes two little pictures from me and one from my wife @rockcake, it’s always nice to be a part of the calendar even if it’s just a small part.
Brighton Photo Fringe business: MiniClick talk, Tim Andrews Over the Hill Exhibition and The Shot I Never Forgot
The Brighton Biannual and companion Photo Fringe festival are now in full swing. I’ve not got any stand alone shows in this years festival but I have images in two group shows and I am speaking at a MiniClick event. Combined the Biannual and Photo Fringe is a massive photography festival and would be well worth a trip to Brighton from London and further afield. If you are from London and this post does not tempt you down I recommend you go to ‘Make Life Worth Living‘ and ‘Open for Business‘ at the Media Space at the London Science Museum.
In June 2014 MiniClick published 5 photo publications including ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ which showcases a collection of photographs by me based around one of the more eccentric members of Brighton swimming club: Dave Sawyers. Originally they just wanted to publish a set of pictures of Brighton Swimming Club. The Club is the oldest swimming club in the world with continuous membership and which I’ve been documenting since 2003. Early during their edit MiniClick realised that there was such a wealth of images that it was going to be tricky to edit it down so they decided to focus on one club member in particular.
It’s not often as a photographer you get offered long term projects. It’s usually a day or a week so it’s with some excitement I can tell that along with Gary Eastwood I have been contracted to document all aspects … Continue reading
It’s that time of year again and the Brighton Festival has once again rolled around, which in turn means it’s time for Brighton Open Houses. There is an absolutely overwhelming number of open houses, more than you could ever hope to get around even if you visited them on every weekend of the 4 week festival.
