Hello people! It has been a long while and much has happened but before I get into any of that, I wanted to share some photos of London I took recently. It was only after graduating from King's College London that they decided that the time was right to open up the next 6 floors…Read more London
What Do You Do?
So what do you do? I stared at the young lad who had come to rent my camera and my mind struggled for a few seconds. It was the first time I’d been asked that question by a total stranger since graduating from university. I find myself in a position difficult to describe; on one…Read more What Do You Do?

They wonder if I have been…Read more Thanks Hackney
A Few More Photos

He had to do it again. This was the worst part of the job. As a young child, he had hated school assemblies and even now, whenever he would see his son standing on stage, his eyes would tear up.

I am a ‘Logger’
My essays were due the following day but when I was summoned to do some video logging for the On Assignment team at ITV, I jumped at the chance. Now before you tut tut and mutter priorities, let me reassure you that I had mostly completed my courseworks and so I was able to say…Read more I am a ‘Logger’
