Vini Vini Vini

High in the Tuscan Hills hides a spectacular vineyard, growing the finest grapes for the most delicious wines. I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph a year in the Vineyards life, at the moment we are halfway through and it has been glorious, looking forward to the next six months

The Keep

I was delighted to be invited to shoot a range of stories for the quality new magazine The Keep which is Made in Hay on Wye.

One of the best stories was The Potent Green a series of portraits of Nina Lyon the author of Uprooted, on the Trail of the Green Man. Captured here with and without the Green Man.

Tuscany Love

A good few years ago now Conde Nast Traveller sent me on a journey along the coast of Maremma, it began a love affair that has lasted. One of the most beautiful places I photographed was Castello di Vicarello, a breathtaking Tuscan Castle on the top of a mountain. A lasting friendship began and I have recently returned to photograph their new website.

Last Supper

Shooting this for The Guardian every so often makes me very happy, Last Suppers of chefs and other creative people is a truly expressive piece of work. Creating the food and atmosphere of someone's last supper.
