A couple of weeks ago my sister Suzanne got married in St Peter’s Church in Woolton, Liverpool. (This is the very church hall where John Lennon met Paul McCartney for the first time, 55 years ago.)
It was a beautiful day; Champagne and strawberries at the house before heading to the church, a relaxed service with a harpist playing Beatles tunes during the signing of the register and even an old Routemaster bus to take everyone to the reception at Liverpool Marina.
There was no way I could possibly get away with not taking a camera, but thankfully the official photographer did all the hard work and I could relax and take some nice snaps.
Great news for Tamsin; her company, iwishiwasa, was featured in the Telegraph magazine on Saturday. Nice for me too; the lead picture for the page was one from our second photoshoot with Archie and his friends running around in our amazing back garden at Grove Park.

- Take responsibility for your own work.
- Make yourself visible.
I’m proud to announce that I’ll be part of a group exhibition in New York City with 9 other artists. ‘Surveys From a Small Island’ features work from 10 photographers who are loosely collected together by John Donaldson under the moniker of Meatyard Arts.
The show runs from 24th to 30th June 2011 at Umbrella Arts, 317 East 9th Street, NYC, NY 10003, with the private view/opening being Thursday 23rd June from 7pm.
And the latest news is that we’ll be there!
After much discussion about Finn being able to handle the flight, daytime naps and the late[ish] nights, we agreed that its an opportunity that is too good to miss - so we’re off to the Windy Apple!
There are already millions of blogs on the internet, so what is Foggy Nervosa for?
My current thinking, and this may well change over time, is that it will serve two functions:
Firstly, it will act as a main conduit to my Flickr and Vimeo accounts for my family and friends who are based around the UK and the rest of the World. (With Foggy Nervosa as a central place to provide context and stories for the images and video posted)
Secondly, it will be an outlet for incidental images and photographs/projects that are ’work in progress’, thus encouraging feedback and debate about any of the projects and areas I’m exploring in my work.
Furthermore, by being a place where I can quickly publish and share work, I’m hoping that I can get back into the routine of regularly shooting and completing projects. The first major project is to completely redo my commercial portfolio; that is producing 20-30 high quality editorial & corporate portraits.
So here we go…
