Morgan Motor Co – 15 years on…

If you’ve have a scan through my site you probably have come across images of Morgan Motor Co. I spent a few days back in 1999 documenting the life in the factory which was my final degree work and helped me gain a 1st BA(Hons). Armed with a Bronica ERSi with a few fixed lenses as far as I can remember I had no real aim or brief for myself other than to ‘shoot life’ in the factory.

I love the power of photography and capturing a moment that is then recorded for history. The older the images get the more captivating they …

Have you ever driven blindfolded?

I’m sure the most of us have not driven blind folded but for a recent shoot, I was asked to document a world record for a blind driver. Miles-Hilton Barber lost his sight in his 20’s but for this Zimbabwean it has not held him back. He is a motivational speaker and international adventurer with a list of achievements and records that a sighted person could only dream of. This record was to set the fastest speed whilst driving a Morgan three wheeler. Aided by his sighted co-pilot Colin Terry of ‘3 Wheel Drive’ Miles reached a speed of over …
