I can’t believe Chester Bennington is no longer with us. I was on a bus yesterday when I heard the news and I couldn’t hold back the tears. His words and his music meant so much to me growing up, I am truly heart broken!

Hybrid Theory was the first album I bought with my own pocket money when I was nine years old. I was in Asda Longwell Green, and I had to convince my mum that it was ok, even though it was Parental Advisory for explicit content. I’d seen "Crawling" on a music channel and it was the first time I’d heard music like that; I was engrossed!

I hope where ever he is now, he’s found peace at last. A troubled and complex man, one I’ll always love, and never forget. 🙏🏼

Ciao! Hope everyone had a good weekend, a good start to the week!🤘🏼☀️

Happy Friday! I don't know about you, but I can't wait to get to bed.. 😴

(See you at Hausbar later, yeah?)

Anyone else going to @NASSFest next week? Excited to see Method Man & Redman, and I’m probably gonna lose my shit to Pendulum! Will be good to hang out with my homie @josh.perrett, better known by his stage name “Joshie P”. 🤘🏼

I took this shot at last years’s @bristolballoon on the Sunday morning ascent. The wind was really odd, the balloons went up and just floated around in circles above the site. @porthjess herself landed merely metres from where she took off 45 minutes previous! 😂

At first it seemed there wouldn’t be much opportunity for photographs that morning, apart from the abundance of cute doggos, but when I saw these three hovering close together I ran to the helter skelter to take one of my favourite shots of the weekend! I could have stayed in the press hut sulking, but instead I went out determined to make something good of the situation and ended up with a photo I loved. It’s one of the times I chalk down as an important lesson, and that lesson is “YOU’VE GOT TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT!” 💪🏼

Now that summer has begun, that means it’s less than three weeks until the greatest weekend of the year is upon us.. BRISTOL HARBOUR FEST! 🍺🍺🍺🍺

I’m often guilty of not making the most of the activities around the harbour during @bristolharbourfest, but this year that will change! I’m going to make use of @bristolferry ⛴ to avoid the crowds and get around quickly so I can squeeze more in! Don’t get me wrong, you will still catch me getting beano’d on Queen Square and King Street on the Friday night! 🎉🥂🍺🍹

It’s also six weeks until the Bristol International Balloon Fiesta! A weekend where we have all the fun, and very little sleep! 😴 I was lucky enough to fly a couple of times last year through @igersBristol, and I can’t recommend it enough! I’ve flown solo before, but flying as part of a mass ascent was truly incredible, and this year already has 130 hot air balloons signed up! If you want to try it out, head to @bristolballoon’s website to find operators to book with! Alternatively, if you’re a bit skint as I often am, this year’s partner @bristolenergy are giving away three pairs of tickets to fly during the fiesta! I’ll put a link in my profile to the competition. ✌🏼

This photo was taken at last year’s press launch, which was conveniently minutes from my house. You’ll never enjoy a 5am start as much as you will when you get to fly! 🤘🏼🎈

Hi. Haven’t posted in a month on here as most of you probably know my camera gear was stolen so I’ve not really been in the mood for sharing photos! 🤷🏻‍♂️😥

Thank you so much to everyone that has taken the time to send me a message, it’s the only thing that kept me positive and got me through what has been a really shit few weeks! The response I got was amazing and it shows what an amazing community there is within photography! 🙏🏼

I don’t know what I’m going to do about buying a new camera, I will probably get one in a few months when I can afford one! I’m thinking of switching to @fujifilm_uk as I’ve kinda fallen in love with the X-T2? Who knows, it’ll be a while before I can buy one so my iPhone and GoPro will have to do for now! 🤙🏼

Shouts to everyone I met at the @canonuk meet in London last night, great to meet new people and see lots of familiar faces! Big thanks to Canon for lending me an EOS M5 and the mega-impressive EF 16-35mm f/2.8 III USM. A really cool mirrorless camera and an incredibly sharp lens! I’ll post a photo of the set up on my story!

Hope everyone is good and you’re enjoying the weather, but please don’t forget to look after our homeless community in this heat. Please provide them water, sunscreen and antihistamines as this hot weather is just as dangerous as the cold winter weather! 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

Hi. Did anyone see the sunrise this morning? It was one of the most incredible sunrises I’ve ever seen! As soon as I saw it, I threw on some clothes and sprinted across the downs to the Seven Sisters. Unfortunately I was a bit late to get a photo, but sometimes you just have to enjoy things whilst they happen! 🤷🏻‍♂️

Anyway, here’s a shot of Bath I have been meaning to take for the last two years. I first went to this spot two summers ago, which was way before I even knew what an ND filter was, let alone owned one. I was with @josh.perrett and @alka.lloyd during the afternoon to see in @bath_festivals, hoping that some clouds would form as without clouds, sunsets just don’t work. In hindsight, I like the simplicity of this image and it’s definitely one of my favourite shots I’ve taken this year. 🙌🏼

Have a great week! 🤙🏼

Instagram has brought me many great experiences over the last two years, but last years press launch at Bristol International Balloon Fiesta / @bristolballoon was probably the best! I had been up in balloons before, but this was my first as part of a mass ascent, and the nearly three hours we spent drifting across the city were absolutely amazing! So grateful for @weareplaster! 🙏🏼

I’d highly recommend buying a flight for this year’s fiesta, it really is a unique experience. 👌🏼

I really love the light in @stnicksmarket on a sunny day! I spent a day shooting in black and white (in-camera) with my pal @mizzban, but once I loaded this RAW file into Lightroom and saw it in colour, I knew that was the move! 🤓

There is so much going on in this photo which would normally put me off, but weirdly it draws me in on this occasion. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Hope you’re all well, and not too wet after today. 🤙🏼

This photo is on the cover of this month’s @bristollifemag, and in full on page 18/19 at the start of The Seven Wonders of Bristol feature. When I arrived at the @bristollifeawards last week, I had no idea my photo would be on the cover of the May issue. I even walked past a massive placard of my photo on the way in until Deri sent me marching back out to go and look at it! 😅

A few weeks ago, Deri (the editor) had asked if I could foregather some photos for a Seven Wonders of Bristol article, and I was happy to help. I picked photos from my pals @jimcosseyphotography, @mrbenadams, @neiljamesb and @louisds as well as myself. What I didn’t know was that one of the photos was going to be used on the cover so it was a lovely surprise at the start of an already lovely evening! I had @jimcosseyphotography marked down for the double page spread, so even that was a surprise to me (Sorry Jimmy). 🤙🏼

I should also thank everyone who made the Bristol Life Awards such a great evening. The guests, the hosts, the hospitality. It was such a fun evening and I can’t wait to do it all again next year!

So yeah, pick up a copy of @bristollifemag, check it out, and also check out the other photographers. I’ll tag them in this photo! 👊🏼

Hi. Long time no see. I hit up some rooftops last night with @bentiley and @alexmillichamp, but I left my tripod mount on my other camera. Many tears. Here’s a photo from a previous mission. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Hope you’re all well! 🤙🏼

Whenever I have people in my photo, I like it to be just one. An isolated figure. That’s just my style, what’s yours? 🤔

Here be @_fukq, taking a feet dangle photo. Who would do something so dangerous? 😱😏
