Firstly I have to say a HUGE thank-you to everyone who has supported me professionally and personally this year. It’s seen some big changes and growth to my career and photography.

Roof Unit, the new shared studio resource in Roman Road was born and has grown from strength to strength. It is now busting at the seams with 18 amazingly talented photographers who I am proud to call both colleagues and friends. The mutual support from the ‘Uniteers’ is our biggest asset and is something I couldn’t build from timber.  We are all grateful to Alexa and Tim who’s input and dedication has pulled it all together.

I’m pleased to be working even closer with the “Reportage by Getty” team as we move in on more corporate and commercial clients to compliment a pure editorial output. Some of the highlights include a creative shoot from the roof of Somerset House with Burke McCarron and a recent assignment from National Geographic to be published in February.

Sitting here getting ready for Christmas with my family is a stark contrast to the insects and rice rations of the Peruvian Rainforest. The final photographic ‘present’ of the year was scoring the cover of British Journal of Photography for the January issue.

I hope you are as excited about 2012 as I am.  New projects, destinations and partners are in the pipeline but the economic down-turn and the Olympics are not.
