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

Published by MiniClick
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.
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.
Below are the three Photographic publications I have purchased. I should buy more photographic books but rest assured when I do purchase a photo book / zine it’s always of the highest quality.
At the last MiniClick along with nine other photographers I gave a five minute talk on a portrait I wished I’d taken. The format was that each speaker had five minutes and were only allowed to show the image they were talking about. For a little more context, I thought I would show some of the other images I referred to in my talk in this blog post. MiniClick has a blog post where you can see see the list of the photographers that were speaking with an example of there work plus the photo they were talking about here. After talking to some of the other speakers I found that I was in a minority in that no portrait had immediately sprung to mind for me like it had for them. After some thought I decided to talk about Frank Hurley’s 1915 portrait of John Vincent, The Bosun of the ship the Endurance.
The portrait theme was due to MiniClick launching their second publication which theme is portraiture. You grab a copy here but hurry it’s a limited edition of 200!

My Family and I recently submitted to Alma Haser’s Ten Seconds Project. The project is based around the childhood game of hide and seek. Participants hide in front of two cameras, one with a 10 second timer and the second shooting video, the idea is to capture a photograph / video of yourself hiding in plan view like a child. Any one can submit to the Ten Seconds Project, it’s pretty simple you can read all the rules here. Because the Project is based around childhood it seemed a good idea to get my three year old daughter Matilda involved.

As part of the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival MiniClick is bringing a slice of Phoot Camp to Brighton in the form of an exhibition and talk. Phoot Camp is an invite-only photography retreat where photographers get together for a few days and create new work. It’s been held in San Francisco, LA, Marfa (Texas) and upstate New York. I have been lucky enough to attend three of the four camps. I have met some amazingly creative people at Phoot so I am really proud to bring a little slice of the camp to Brighton for the Photo Fringe.
Jim Stephenson has put my 76 minute MiniCLick talk online for your viewing pleasure. The talk is about the photographers that I find interesting and inspirational. I spoke about a mix of photographers from people I know to famous shooters from the past and present. If you want to discover more from any of the photographers work mentioned I have put links to all of them in this blog post.
While on the subject of talks there are loads of MiniClick related talks coming up and I will be speaking at the Margate photography festival in mid August. More details below.
