Shangri-La at Glastonbury 2013

Earlier this month I headed off to Glastonbury to take some photos of the heaven and hell stages at Shangri-La, designed by long time client (and friend) Andrew T Cross from An-Architecture. I've worked with Andy on projects in the past and it's always good fun and a bit different to your usual shoot. When I turned up he showed me to the backstage camping area and then bought me a 2 litre bottle of cloudy cider before giving me a tour of the stages he'd designed and built on site.

Studio in the Woods 2013

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Je Ahn from Studio Weave about shooting this year's Studio in the Woods in Wiltshire, UK. As it turned out, Piers Taylor of Invisible Studio had, at the same time, contacted fellow architectural photographer and good friend, Andy Matthews for the same project. Rather than competing on it, Andy and I decided to work together to produce stills and video of the five structures built in the woods as part of the workshop.

Architectural Photography Masterclass for the V&A

Last weekend I was invited by the V&A to run an architectural photography "masterclass" (their words, not mine) at the museum. Always nice to be asked, so I packed up my kit, wrote down some notes and headed up there to mould some minds.

Press Scrum! At the Serpentine Pavilion Press Day

Being an architectural photographer I work with space. Literally. I usually have a lot of space to work in.

I also tend to work alone. I can afford to work at a relaxed pace because the building usually isn't going anywhere fast (although that isn't always the case).

I'm not really used to having loads of photographers frantically running around, fingers jammed on shutters. I only ever see that at the press day for the Serpentine Pavilion...

Sou Fujimoto's 2013 Serpentine Pavilion / London

This year, thanks in no small part to Ludwig Abache (thanks Ludwig!), I was asked to document the construction of the Serpentine Pavilion, by Sou Fujimoto. Today was the press view so after a couple of months of wading around in site boots with a hard hat on, I headed down in my sunglasses to photograph the finished project.

I had high expectations, partly from seeing the project take shape, but also because Sou Fujimoto is an architect I really admire. I wasn't disappointed! Here's a few from today. Video (including an interview with Sou) and construction shots to follow.

Incidentally, and off topic, I'm uploading these images on Matthew's Yard wifi - a fantastic, independant cafe / theatre / events space / work place in East Croydon. Well worth a visit!
