Zebra and Giraffe Band

It’s been long since I really blogged properly but I have been super busy with work catching up after a super holiday in Europe with my dad. I played “happy snapper” on holiday and only used my little Lumix camera to shoot photographs which was really strange but fun and relaxing for once.

Anyway, I shot some photographs with the guys from Zebra and Giraffe last night. They are just about to launch their live act as a band and it’s starting to get exciting. I had an idea while on the plane back from the UK of a photo that I wanted to shoot and the guys agreed to let me give it a try. The only problem was that it was SUPER dark and SUPER cold last night so it was a LOT harder to shoot than I had thought. I couldn’t see what I had in my frame and I couldn’t see if the flash units were set at the right setting and so on. I got a few really cool shots though so I guess it was a success. Next time I won’t care about the people sleeping nearby and rather take my generator along to give us some light.

Check out Zebra and Giraffe if you haven’t yet.

Hope you all well, M

This photograph is quite old but I just found it backing up my drives and liked it quite a lot. I am posting it because Greg is the front man from Reach and they have just launched their debut album entitled Fire and Grace and you need to check it out if you can. You can listen to some of the tracks on their myspace page by going here

Euro Forest

I just got back from touring London and Frankfurt (Germany) with my dad and it was amazing. I really love the time I get to spend in Europe and cannot wait to be back there again soon. This photograph is just on of a tall tree in a forest in Frankfurt and I really like it.

I have just launched my new portfolio site and even though it still has a lot of work that needs to be done on it, you can see it on

I hope you are all well and want to thank you for the support, comments and feedback I have been receiving of late. It has inspired me plenty to try and create good things for you to see. Please feel free to comment and keep in touch. M

Sunny Cake

I shot a few more photographs today with the good people from Indulge that they are going to be using to print big posters that will be displayed in their new store opening later this month.

I shot this one for myself of the cake in the sun cause I thought it looked nice. Haha.
