Many industries adorn the edges of small towns across the States. Often large in structure, they provide a local community with work, and one gets the impression that the very small towns rely heavily on the success of these places. One of my favorites was the huge structure above, which was situated along the side […]
This post is a collection of images that were shot when we stopped for fuel, food or lodging. I am interested in these places as much as any other; snapshots of moments, possibly bland places, essential to someone for their journey. At times there was a certain peace in these places, probably due to having […]
Not much to really say on this one, just a collection of old vehicles located from east to west. Some are seemingly still in use, others are very much not.
I could not tell you how many small towns we passed through on this trip, but I can say that I wish I could have stopped in every single one for a duration of days to get a feel for each place. Passing through is great and all, but there is a lot to be […]
Where to start with this one!? Arriving in Nevada, I was eager to pay this place a visit by night. I did so to amazing effect with the help of the Milky Way, which I will document in a much later post. I was so impressed and intrigued by the site, that the following day […]

The American truck is an iconic part of the road trip which is cemented in many a movie and other forms of popular culture. When you do a trip covering so many miles, it starts to make a lot of sense as to why the drivers have such pride in these machines, after all for […]
By means of an opening act, allow me firstly to explain my recent lack of interaction and blog updates, which has sparked questioning regarding the imagery which is now set to follow in due course. The expectancy was that there would be an instant uploading of imagery following my return from the USA. However I […]
Following on from the previous post which saw me capture the models physique in quite an abstract fashion, this small set of images show the more traditional images that I also took during the same shoot, at the models request. Once again this model was a delight to work with.
Having worked with this model before to great effect, I was delighted to have the opportunity to shoot with her once again. This time it was decided that instead of the traditional type of poses within human form photography, that we would take a more abstract approach, which was further aided by her flexible nature. […]
The second installment of the recent trip to Lisbon, comes in the form of 35mm black and white film imagery. Choosing film over digital for most of my daytime based photography meant it was a natural decision to work this way in Lisbon as well. The additional challenge came in the shape of me attempting […]
