Last September I was lucky enough to be in L.A as the Space Shuttle Endeavour was being towed to its final resting place at the California Science Centre. The resulting series of work ‘ Endeavour comes home ‘ was posted on the this blog earlier this year.
I was looking though my contact sheets again and found this series of onlookers.

This kind of thing never happens. We were shooting a story for Le Monde in Yellowstone national park when we saw this huge elk wondering through a burnt out forest. I moved closer thinking the elk would see me and run away but instead the elk stayed. Crouching down I waited with my Alpa…. the Elk walked straight towards camera until he was about three meters away. Even in July it was pretty cold up there at 8’000 ft, I could see the steam coming out of his mouth….and hope’d he wouldn’t charge.
There will be a small edition of prints available in various sizes.

First Point, Malibu California. The setting for The Endless Summer and home to many a soul surfer.
This is the first in a series of work that will examine the surfers landscape as an art form as opposed to simply documenting a sport.

On the 20th September 2012, Space Shuttle Endeavour took the last slow steps towards her final resting place, The California Science Centre, Inglewood, Los Angeles.
It was ironic to observe this amazing vessel that once orbited our Earth at thousands of miles per hour, now slowly being towed down Crenshaw Boulevard slower than walking pace.
There will be an edition of just 10 40″ prints.

I shot this new series on location above Grindelwald, Switzerland and in Chamonix, France. It’s an idea that I came upon whilst reading ‘Mountains of my Life’ by seminal alpinist Walter Bonatti. The saying goes that black crows (choucas) are the souls of climbers lost to the mountains.

I’m starting to delve into the mountain of personal work that came out of our last trip to Monument Valley. Having never explored the area properly I thought the best way to cover ground might be on horseback.
Here is one of the first prints. The colours were inspired by some old gold tone prints I once saw by photographer Edward S Curtis.
