A Sequence Of Sri Lanka

A Sequence Of Sri Lanka is a short film that I have FINALLY put together, taken whilst solo travelling Sri Lanka at the beginning of the year. The warm ocean, tropical palm tree lined beaches, welcoming people, stray dogs, crazy streets and beautiful light, that’s what Lanka is to me. It’s meant to be a messy…

A Welsh Summer

You might think I’m lying, but summer in Pembrokeshire has become one of my favourite things in the world. I’ve always lived by the sea, but in a small seaside town, winters can be quiet and (sometimes) pretty bleak. Dark stormy nights become rainy grey days, the winds can be bitterly cold and no one…

Surf Photography in Southern Sri Lanka

One of the reasons for my month long trip to Sri Lanka was to get in the water and improve my photography amongst the waves. Shooting in the surf is a lot more difficult than people imagine and you have to have some knowledge of that environment before you even get in. Tides, currents, rips…

A Different Kind Of Christmas

“Do your research. Read labels. Buy less. Buy local. And support brands that care.” Christmas is coming, we’re in the countdown stage and already some enthusiastic neighbors have excessive neon lights and decorations blinding you from their sitting room windows. ‘Tis the season to be jolly (although slightly annoying). Christmas is less than 4 weeks…

Get The Boys A Lift

I recently wrote an article for a local newspaper called The Western Telegraph about Get The Boys A Lift, a not for profit organization based here in Pembrokeshire helping local and national mental health organizations (and if you haven’t already heard of them, where have you been?!)   The organization was set up in 2016…
