Last June MiniClick published a small print run publication of some of my work documenting Brighton Swimming Club. ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ centred around David Sawyers: one of the clubs more eccentric characters. The first print run sold out super fast, I was on holiday when they went on sale, so I didn’t get a chance to promote the release, soon after I was back they were sold out. I know there was a few people that were disappointed that they did not get a copy in their hands.
I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save

This is Technimatic’s debut album ‘Desire Paths’ which was released by Brighton’s very own Shogun Audio label. They asked if they could license a preexisting image of an Oakland telegraph pole for the cover art of there album. Technimatic are a Drum & Bass due so it’s right up my street. It’s available vinyl, CD and digital formats at shogunaudio.co.uk and of course Amazon, iTunes etc.
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.
My montage portraits are currently featured in the new issue of Hungry Eye. Last year Anton interviewed me and filmed me shooting some of my montage portraits for his new documentary film series Analogue Tribes (which you can see here). He has now turned our discussion into an article. Hungry Eye is a quarterly so it will be available until September 2014, look out for it in all good news agents.
MiniClick has started publishing small photo books focusing on one project. For those of you that don’t know MiniClick has been organising free photography talks in Brighton and further afield since 2010. I have had the pleasure of speaking at MiniClick on several occasions. So it’s with great pride that I can tell you that my work will be published along with 4 other photographers in the first set of photo books. They will launch on June the 25th at the Old Market in Hove.
If you follow my blog you will probably know that every so often I post a selection of the montage street style portraits that I shoot for Brighton Source Magazine. After seeing my montage portraits of the Phoot Camp attendees Source Magazine asked me to shoot their trend spotting section for the January 2010 issue as a guest spot. Four years later I was still trend spotting for them. Unfortunately after all that time Source has now ceased as a Magazine due to shrinking advertising revenues – you can read more about it on Source’s site here. It’s a massive loss for Brighton as Source was a champion of local talent. Their main editorial rule was that whatever or whoever is featured it had to be local to Brighton. Initially Source was going to carry on as an online entity but it looks like that will not happen as even without a full time staff they can’t make the website work with the available advertising revenue. I hope that James Kendall (editor) and all the other Source staff luck with their future endeavours.
Last month the buzz seemed to be about Facebook celebrating their first 10 years of existence so Flickr’s 10th birthday a few days later seem to pass by without too much of fuss. To celebrate, Flickr has put a little video together of different images (including twelve of my images). I watched it three times before I realised that the images were actually counting up to 10, it’s quite subtle, or maybe I was having a dumb moment!
This is an unabridged version of an article of phone photography tips I wrote for an in store magazine distributed by O2 in the UK. It came off the back of the video I made with O2 in 2012. I thought I would post it now before it goes out of date. I don’t really take photos on my phone anymore, even though I am an avid Instagram user (i’m @lomokev) I’ve been shooting with the Samsung NX 300 (review) and Olympus OM-D E-M1 (review) that I can wirelessly transfer photos to smart phone for easy posting, wireless transfer is becoming a more common on newer cameras. I have also been taking it one step further with the Android powered Samsung Galaxy NX which you can post directly to the internet (review coming soon).
