I was commissioned to photograph fishermen in Devon and Ireland during the winter as part of an exciting new restaurant in Mayfair. The Black Roe is brainchild of restaurateur Kurt Zdesar and all its food comes from sustainable sources. My 1.5m high black and white prints seek to celebrate these heroic guardians of the sea.
Richard Eyre's production of Eugene O'Neill's Long Day's Journey Into Night opened at the Bristol Old Vic this week to rave reviews.
What an honour to be asked to shoot the poster for the play, featuring the electric pairing of Jeremy Irons and Lesley Manville.

My portrait of my pal and unsurpassed master of kirigami Marc Hagan- Guirey. He has just opened his latest show. In Cut Scene Marc has fashioned 12 models inspired by Star wars each cut from a single sheet of A4 paper. They are a wonder to behold. The exhibition runs from August 8th-16th at 5th Base Gallery.

......he's a very naughty boy.
I'm showing my age here but I must admit that these words are still amongst the funniest I have ever heard.
Perhaps it's down to the strictures of my Irish Catholic childhood or the fact the Pythons regularly made my father cry with laughter. Either way I am very grateful to them all.
Photographing Terry Jones was a joy. He is an incredibly nice man and makes a mean Americano.

For the first time in its history the Turner Prize was held this year out side London. Derry-Londonderry is 2013 City of Culture and was given the honour of hosting the prestigious prize. The React campaign, brainchild of advertising agency Kindred aimed to engage the people of Derry and further afield in contemporary art and to record their reactions. The resulting images formed a city dressing linking citizens of Ireland with the art that showcased in Derry. Seamus travelled for ten days around Ireland, North and South, in a specially converted campervan studio to record the reactions. To see more click here.

The Paperdandy. We worked together to take this tongue in cheek shot. Kirigami is an incredibly complicated version of origami that involves cutting and folding and Marc has created a unique branch of this ancient art. His Horrorgami project presented 13 famous haunted houses, each cut from a single shoot of paper. If you share my love of true craft do visit his website.
