My latest craft tutorial for Dog’s Monthly magazine sees me turn a plain chopping board into a kitsch lead holder. If you’re a dog owner why not make one? Guaranteed to get tails wagging!

“Even from my very early days, the feedback I got was that my work felt close, not voyeuristic or sterile.”
Al Overdrive is best known for making images which reflect his cinematic approach to fashion and portraiture. His work emanates an air of relaxed honesty, capturing a moment of calm which is both empathetic and revealing. Heavily influenced by the Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi (perhaps in opposition to his previous career in forensic photography) he is able to reflect the personality of the people and of clothing he shoots in a way which feels natural. Unlike most photography which emphasises distance, his work embraces proximity rending the camera almost invisible. Read my interview with Al, published on the Autographer blog here.
I’m happy to have my feature ‘Brewing A Storm’ on The Exeter Brewery published in this month’s Devon Life magazine. It was an interesting piece to write and photograph – I discovered that The Exeter Brewery’s organic real ale is so popular it’s exported to France via sail boat and rebranded for the Army!
Issue 2 of Inspired Bride hits the shops today. I had butterflies in my stomach when we sent Issue 1 of Inspired Bride to the printers last month and when I first saw it on the shelves of WH Smith! I’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by all the positivity surrounding Issue 1 – thank you to everyone who bought the first issue and all of you who took the time to reach out and tell me how much you loved it!
