1. A month ago I shot a couple of homes for Made Unboxed - a new project to showcase customers real homes and the fabulous Made products that reside in them. If you need some inspiration for your home… it’s now just a click away. More images from this series on my website.

     
  2. I shot the Talland Bay Beach Café last week on a very hot and sunny Thursday. The weather was fantastic and the view was even better. Check it out if you’re over near Looe sometime! 

     
  3. Some of my photos are featured at Nixon Design’s stand at the Royal Cornwall Show.

  4. Last week I shot the lovely Amanda Taffinder (and her dog Basil) at her studio on The Roseland. Her beautiful sense of colour and texture produces amazing arrangements for all occasions. I was lucky enough to take the bouquet featured home with me, and it makes me smile every time I see it on my kitchen table.

     
  5. Some of my photos of Felix McCormack were recently featured in the London Design Journal. Check out the article here.

     
  6. A couple of weeks ago I was commissioned to shoot the Lander Gallery in Truro, Cornwall. The gallery is located on the top level of the Lemon Quay. Its a light and welcoming space that’s the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee and some fine art anytime of the year.

     
  7. I wrapped up a shoot this week for the newly refurbished Godolphin Arms. The space has been completely transformed. In the summer I’m going back to finish up some final touches, and I’m looking forward to enjoying their fish and chips again. 

    To see more of the photos from the shoot please visit my website here.

  8. The Home Makers - Rosie Sutcliffe Glassware

    Last week I spent the afternoon photographing Rosie Sutcliffe’s studio in Penryn, Cornwall. Rosie’s studio was originally an old bakery, and full to the brim with interest. To me the process of glassblowing seemed almost like a dance, full of repeating movements all over the space. Rosie’s sophisticated colour palate is complemented by sand-blasting images of flowers and other patterns onto the glass. Her beautiful creations will add colour and depth to any space. Please visit Rosie’s website to see more of her work.

     
  9. Finally got around to making my winter scarf. Found a brilliant easy to use step by step video by CraftingWithClaudie. Check out the link here.

     
  10. 1. Double over fishing line or string (make sure to give yourself plenty of length).

    2. Make a slip knot.

    3. Slip a piece of glass behind the knot, and make another knot to secure the first.

    4. Repeat the process until you reached your desired length. Then tie a triple knot to secure.

    5. Once you’ve finished all the strands to your mobile, use a paintbrush to apply super glue to all the backs of the sea glass (or you could use brushable super glue).

    6. Once dry, cut the top loops to your strands.

    7. Tie a slip knot to mark where you want the strand to hang on the driftwood.

    8. Tie on string, and hang in a sunny window.
