Pjazza December Issue On-Set

I just delivered the finished pictures for the December issue fashion shoot for Pjazza. Izzy (editor) was really pleased, which is a relief. I'm really lucky to have an editor who is:

a) Fun to work with
b) Understanding and trusting of what I am going for
c) Enthusiastic about the results

The mag is out on 4th December with the Times of Malta. In the meantime, here are some pics from the shoot:

A Parting Shot

This Sunday (21st November) FIRST magazine, which comes out with The Malta Independent on Sunday, started a new feature called 'Parting Shots'. In this piece, a photographer will be featured, talking about 2 of his or her images. I was the lucky snapper this time around. To see the article as a PDF, just click here.

Thanks to the editor of FIRST magazine, Colin Fitz.

Cinema Code of Conduct

BBC Radio 5 Live's Simon Mayo and Mark Kermode have hereby climbed Mount Sinai and returned with the coveted commandments otherwise known as the Code of Conduct for patrons of cinemas. Here it is in all it's glory.

The list touches upon my many pet hates and reasons why I approach each cinema visit with dread. As I enter the auditorium, I tend to scan the audience for potential offenders of such behavior... and I'm sure I'm not alone in this.

Feel free to pass it around. It can be downloaded from here.

A busy end to the year

I have been itching to update the blog, but I have been so busy lately that there just hasn’t been the opportunity. The run-up to the end of the year is looking very hectic and I cannot wait for late December when I return home to the UK for Christmas and the New Year with my wife and son.

Here's a quick update on what's been going on to keep me away from blogging...
