Summer Editorial Book

This edition features model Taylor Empey, and influencer Megan Clark, as well as product editorials featuring Le Labo, Givenchy, Harris Gin and others.
Featured in the in-publication section, my commission of Climate Advocate Tom Brookes at COP26 was featured as the leading image for Politico Europe on that days edition, and has also a won a place in the Scottish Portrait Awards Long List Exhibition. Actress Evangeline Young is also featured as the ABC Network announced her new role in a US sitcom in Variety and Deadline. 

Finalist in the 2022 Scottish Portrait Awards Long List Exhibition

I’m delighted to have had two images make it through to the Scottish Portrait Awards Long List Exhibition again this year. One each in the Fine Art and Richard Coward Scottish Portrait Award in Photography categories.

The portrait of Tom Brookes at The New York Times Climate Hub at COP26 was the headline story in Politico Europe on the day it was published last November. His kind and quiet demeanour hid well his outsized influence in the realm of client politics.

I had been hesitant to enter the long exposure image into the competition, even though the series has sold well, and I’m proud of it – long exposure shots can sometimes appear more of a parlor trick than fine art and I wasn’t sure it would be well-received. But it so reflects the mood and madness of that pandemic summer: Free and confined. Stifled and unscripted. A hanging question mark of when things would ever be normal again – whatever that means…

A Recent Commission for Politico Europe

My image, commissioned by Politico Europe of Tom Brookes, appears alongside their lead story today.

With an equanimity that belies his outsize influence in the world of climate politics (“After all, someone’s gotta check Greta Thunberg’s email.” – Politico), Tom and his international team have been ever-present as a white label comms and a advocacy group, whispering in the ears of the media. “From the rise of youth activists to climate change’s link with fires and floods — chances are the GSCC was there behind the scenes, turning up the volume.” (Politico)
