These are a few of our favorite things ...

I created this advert as a concept for a campaign to encourage the use of sending air mail packages through the Post Office and Royal Mail. In todays society, it would remind people how pleasant receiving a package from friends and relatives really is, instead of text or email. Designed to show that the handlers care a great deal about what they do, this could easily be adapted and work well in magazines, newspapers, street billboards as well as online

Return from North Africa

I'm officially back from my mini adventure where I managed to take over 1,500 photos of life in North Africa. I visited the usual touristy destinations such as film locations of Monty Python's Life of Brian, Star Wars and Jesus of Nazareth along with the 3d largest Roman amphitheatre and the Sahara Desert. Other visits included Tunisia's cosmopolitan capital Carthage and Sidi Bou Said, the blue and white picture postcard village. I did venture off the track to many back streets of deprived small towns and villages along with getting quite close to the Libyan border at one stage! I managed to wander through the streets as an outsider with cameras in hand with my very basic spoken French and few Arabic phrases to get by. It was quite an adventure. With 'Survival' - the title of my final major project for my Art+Design course in mind, I hope you find these images captivating.

"Never stop taking photos"

... That will be my famous quote if I ever make it in the Art, Design & Advertising world! Here is a selection from almost 300 images taken from my photographic study of Oxford. Notice I have not adopted any particular style and like to experiment and capture everything.
I'm heading off to North Africa this evening which will be an another excellent opportunity to snap photos on another continent. Will be sure to post my findings.
