So today is significant for 3 reasons.

1. As big a Star Wars fan as I am, May the 4th will always be, first and foremost, Audrey Hepburn’s birthday.
2. It’s also, as it happens, John’s and my (15th!) anniversary.
3. At the confluence of those two things is this moment, on the steps of Holly Golightly’s apartment in New York City. Because “life’s a fact – people do fall in love. People do belong to each other.”


Kicking off the New Year in style, you can see my latest fashion editorial in this month’s issue of Féroce Magazine! Celebrating the 55th anniversary of Breakfast at Tiffany’s, this shoot reinterprets some of Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic looks through the lens of men’s fashion. Shot in New York, and utilising the actual filming locations from the movie, John was styled using a combination of modern and vintage pieces to recreate Holly Golightly’s timeless style from a male perspective.

Our last day in the city, which left just one thing to do-


Featuring 70 hand-crafted costumes from all seven movies, this exhibition reveals the artists’ creative process—and uncovers the connection between character and costume.


A unique and imaginative exhibition that examined fairy tales through the lens of high fashion.


In which more or less every place we visited somehow ended up being on Fifth Avenue.


Because when all of your connecting flights go through Newark, it would be rude not to stop by New York. 🗽


I finally got around to compiling all the footage from John’s and my trip across the pond! (Watch it in full HD over on Vimeo.)

In a happy confluence of milestones, this photo will be my 2,000th image over on Flickr, where I just surpassed one million views, in the run-up to what will be – as of next week – my first year as a full-time photographer.

The jobs I’ve been lucky enough to undertake over the last twelve months have been pretty far-reaching: contributor to Getty Images, exhibiting throughout Scotland, working as resident photographer at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and seeing my work in print across the world – in news (The Glaswegian, Yahoo, MSN, and The Huffington Post to name a few) and advertising (Telstra Mobile, Rogers Communication, Viacom, the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority, and Logo TV’s NewNowNext to name a few more).

When I think of the photographers whose work inspires me most, the quote that always come to mind is one of G.K. Chesterton’s – that, “The duty of the artist lies in keeping alive a sense of wonder in the world.”

My initial fear in choosing photography as a career was that it would somehow diminish my love of taking pictures – that the moment it started to feel like a job would be the moment I would stop reaching for the camera. The reality, however, is that I’ve never felt more inspired, and couldn’t be more grateful to be earning a living by sharing – a million times around the world – the wonder I see in it.

Let’s hear it for New York.
