Data Protection Observations

In the light of new European data protection regulations coming into force, future commissioned work featuring people in European territory will be shot exclusively on film.

Forthcoming Projects

I've been quiet on the personal work front for a while, and it's time that changes.

Part of what's held me back was obligations at home, and the sheer logistical hurdles of planning and executing any kind of photography expedition to the places I like to haunt. A major setback was some severe damage to my vehicle when I hit a cow on a remote stretch of roadway in northern Namibia; it's taken a long time to get that sorted out properly. But now, inshallah, I should be back in a position to get some trips done.

Site Update

It's been a while since I spent much time with my website; there were some configuration difficulties that have now been resolved. With a bit of luck there will be more activity here in future.

Some gentle updates were necessary; I've updated the CMS (This site is powered by Koken) and rearranged the content to make it a little easier to navigate and – crucially – a lot easier to update. I was happy with the general look and feel of the site, and I do like the CMS (though the "blogging" part needs some review, guys), so most changes have been under the bonnet, so to speak.

A more general update: I am now rocking the absolutely stunning Fujifilm GFX50s – this is the first digital camera that has actually drawn me in and made me feel right at home like this. The price for entry into this system was high, but I have to say: thus far, no regrets. The files this thing spits out are just magnificent, and I can't wait to get back to Namibia and get my teeth into some new projects I have in mind.
