Happy Christmas

Personal 23 Dec 14

Hello there. Well 2014 has been quite a year. I feel like I’ve been through a journey with blogging. I started the year with the idea of bringing Vanilla Days back. I did as Over the Water. I also had an idea of having another blog to write on. Half way through the year I had 4 blogs. Mobile, Over the Water, Little Time Machine and yay.wtf. While on my honeymoon I read the Steve Jobs book by Walter Isaacson. He reminded me that you should focus and declutter. So I came back and did just that. One blog. It’s been going 10 years. It’s Little Time Machine.

This year I’ve photographed major events such as the Liverpool BiennialLiverpool Irish FestivalEveryman re-openingLiverpool International Music FestivalLight NightCraig Charles homecoming show and the amazing return of the Giants.

I was incredibly happy to be asked to help produce a new image library for University of Manchester ranging from portraits of staff and students to photographs of various departments and facilities around the university.

This blog turned 10. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 years. It predates twitter and instagram. Back in those days there weren’t many photoblogs around. Now there’s loads. It’s been great to see the community grow and be a part of it. I’ve got plans for the blog in 2015.

In other cool news a portrait I took at Remembrance Sunday was selected by VSCO to be included in their selection of Best Black and White images of 2014.

The real highlight of the year is that in September my fiancé and I were married in Liverpool and spent 2 weeks touring Europe. A week on a beach in Croatia and a couple of photo essays in Venice on washing lines and the selfie stick. What’s a honeymoon without sun, sea and photo essays?
