You know what they say interviews can be a bit like buses know wants to talk for ages then suddenly three Interviewers rock up all at the same time. In the last month I’ve had three interviews published in three different places each focusing on something different.
On the Wednesday 29th of November I will be giving a short talk about my work documenting the construction of the British Airways i360 at ‘Modern Brighton & Hove’. I will be joined by fellow photographer Rob Orchard who will be talking about his project were he photographing every single pub in Brighton and Hove. In all there will be four short talks which will be followed by a panel discussion Kate Cheyne (University of Brighton), Claire Potter and Architectural Photographer Jim Stephenson (founder of MiniClick).
The Brighton and Hove calendar 2017 is now available, this is second year that Finn Hopson of the Brighton Photography gallery has producing the calendar since taking it over. The calendar is comprised of the work of local Brighton Photographers including two of my images.
One of my images of Dave Sawyers has been printed on a beer mat along with 9 other photographers work for the Brighton Tap Takeover beer festival. The 10 different beer matts will be on the tables of 10 Brighton pubs over the weekend (9th-10th April), if you visit all the pubs you can collect a full set (maybe stick to half pints, drink responsibly and all that).

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.

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.
