I first photographed Tim a few years ago for his Over The Hill project , I was delighted when he agreed to another shoot last week. Tim who has Parkinsons Disease started ‘Over the hill’ in 2008 and over the last 8 years he has been Photographed by over 400 Photographers. When I received an email to say that he was wrapping up the project I emailed him straight back and asked if he would be interested in posing for me again.
It’s rare as a Photographer to have the opportunity of someone offering to pose to be completely open minded and flexible, Tim is such a great sport an artist in his own right he is such a charming interesting person to spend time with. I wanted to explore my ideas around visually framing images of fragility and vulnerability he soon wrote back, “Dark, moody, feathers, eggs, naked, bubble wrap??? Are you kidding? Of course l am up for it!!!”
I tried doing a bit of video directly through twitter the other day, this is Thomasin Newton at my studio she is a colour and fashion stylist. We are working on a new exciting venture together so I got her just to chat briefly to me about accessories so I could try out the video. It actually turns out that it doesn’t appear in my gallery on my phone but on my PC I was able to copy and embed the code to my blog, so I will definitely try using it again in the future.

Some shots from a Product Photography shoot for the company Why Buy New . They wanted a model to use their product so their customers can see the size of the product and how easy it is to use. I hired a model and shot at my studio in Colchester. It was fun to shoot, good job I had fan going…
