Earlier this month, Tim Andrews invited me to photograph him for his Over The Hill project, where he's been photographed by over 300 photographers in the last 6 years since being diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. I've known Tim for a while now, and followed his project for even longer - back in March I co-curated a whole day of discussions and talks about him and his project with the Miniclick team in Brighton and it proved a fascinating look into the relationship between the photographer and the subject, as well as a great look into how so many people approach photographing the same person. A lot of the people who have taken portraits of him are photographers that I really respect (and a lot of them are friends too), so it was a great honour to be asked. More info and a video (with nudity!), after the break...

In May last year, Jim was commissioned to photograph Clerkenwell Design Week again, which is always good fun. Often he gets asked to photograph projects and designer's work that isn't formally on the brief but is a part of the festival, and this year he was asked to head to Zaha Hadid's new Design Gallery to get some shots of the interior.

2013 has been a pretty good year all round. I've been given the chance to travel the UK, Europe and the World to photograph some amazing architecture (all in the name of work...) and generally had more fun with my photography than ever before. I've been looking back through my Instagram feed for the year and thought I'd post some of the pictures up on my blog, of the places I've been to, people I've been with and things I've seen...

Earlier this month, I was very pleased to find out I'd been shortlisted for the Architectural Photographer of the Year Award by ARCAID. Specifically, I was shortlisted in the 'Buildings in Use' category, which I was especially pleased about because it's documenting how the buildings are being used that gets me most excited.
My work was exhibited, alongside the other shortlisted folk, in Singapore during WAF and will go on show in London early next year as well.
Big thanks to Andrew T Cross of An Architecture for commissioning me to photograph his Shangri La structures at Glastonbury Festival this year and providing me with the stage for the winning photo!

Gibraltar has been in the news a fair bit over the last few months, and back in May Jim was invited out there to photograph the stunning Mount Barbary property for the Morgan Carn Partnership.
Morgan Carn are a design orientated architectural practice based in Brighton. They work with a diverse series of projects, aiming to create beautiful places to live and work in. The house at Mount Barbary was certainly no exception; Jim spent a good few days photographing the large private residence which is perched on the rocks, overlooking the bay, and offering spectacular views of the water.
