Every year between between the end of October and the start of March tens of thousands of starlings can be seen flocking around Brighton Pier. I am lucky in that my office is only a 3 minute walk from the pier, so if the weather is good I will often wander down to the pier 20 minutes before sunset to watch and shoot one of nature’s wonders. That said they flock no matter what the weather, it’s amazing to watch the move in unison even in very strong winds. Below are some of video and photos of Brighton’s starlings that I have shot over the years.
Shot in January 2016 on a Samsung NX1.
The 2016 Brighton and Hove calendar is now available, this is first year that Finn Hopson of Brighton Photography has taken over it’s production from Nigel Swallow. The calendar is comprised of the work of local Brighton Photographers including four of my images.
A group of graffiti artists from the MSK crew were invited to cover 100 meters of hoarding along the sea facing part of the Brighton i360 site last Sunday (9th August). I went along to document the process, last year there was a smaller event where I met four of the artists that had returned. In total 14 artists: 192,Aroe, Alert, Aups, Avk, Gary, Jiroe, Morf, Msk, Owed, Rebus, Rench, Twesh, Vodka, Warg and Yesb were painting for pretty much most of the day. Usually when I’m shooting for i360 I am in trousers with hi-vis and hard hat, it was nice to be shooting in the sunshine with my shorts, baseball cap and Birkenstocks

This weekend was the first phase of the Brighton i360 foundation pour. A total of 2500 tonnes of concrete was poured into the foundations over 12 hours starting at 6am on Saturday morning. On average a cement truck was coming on site every 5 minutes to one of 3 pumps. The pumps can put the concrete anywhere in the foundation. There was a small group of men for each pump using vibrators to remove air from the concrete and to make it level. I was on site taking pictures and I also shot a time-lapse of the pour.
I’ve been working for the Brighton i360 for almost a year now. I’ve previously posted pictures from my visit to Cif in Holland where the tower is being made and I also posted posted the first 8 month of a time-lapse which is documenting the entire build.
I’ve been asked by Viva Brighton Magazine to give a Pecha Kucha talk at their new event Talent Pool. On the evening there will be a series of talks from different Brighton creative types who will be talking about their creative process. I’ll be talking about the work I’ve been doing for the Brighton i360 and how I was offered the opportunity of working for them.
As part of an ongoing commission to document the construction of the Brighton i360 I’ve been shooting a long term time-lapse of it’s building site. I’ve set up a camera that has been taking a picture every 10 minutes, from the start in July 2014 to February 2015 it’s now shot over 25,000 images. The edit I’ve made excludes weekends, holidays and nights, although I’ve included three nights when they were working 24 hours a day to divert a sewer.
This Saturday I’ll be appearing on CBBC’s new art show ‘Art Ninja‘. Art Ninja follows the artistic adventures of Ricky AKA the Art Ninja. In the episode I appear in Ricky comes to Brighton and enlists the help of some … Continue reading
