About

Dreams and memories

I started my shop in the summer of 2011.

I've been taking photos for many years, so I had tens of thousands stored up. I was just fed up of keeping them hidden. Time to try to share them!

It may seem weird, but I was pretty nervous about the whole thing because I'd never really published or promoted my work before. Almost no one had ever seen my photos, and it seemed strange not just to be showing them off, but to be selling them to complete strangers! But once I'd got started and had my first few sales, it all started to fall into place.

My photography has always been about memories, dreams. People and things somehow removed in time and place. I always strive to create images which look like they're on the edge of your mind: somehow familiar, but remote.

To achieve that effect I use a variety of techniques and tools. Sometimes a simple photo taken with my Holga "toy" film camera will speak volumes. Other times I will process a photo from my high-resolution Canon 5D to give it just the quality I had in mind when I took the shot.

To me the key thing is not to become obsessed with technology for its own sake, as so many photographers do. The most imporant thing is to have a clear vision of what you want, and to use the right set of tools to get that look.

    In 1995 I borrowed my dad's old Canon SLR film camera for a couple of weeks. I was hooked! I've been addicted to photography ever since.

Shop policies

Last updated on April 3, 2012
I particularly love using heavy matte papers, as they give the prints a warm, granular, almost painted texture.

I offer square format prints in 5x5 or 8x8, and quite a few at 8x12, although in most cases I can offer larger sizes on request.

All colour prints are on a choice of thick, textured, matte papers for an almost watercolour effect, or Kodak Endura Metallic for a lustrous and metallic effect.

Black and whites are printed on classic Ilford pearl using lambda printers, or on smooth German etching paper.

However if you'd like your print on another paper please let me know.

theprintspace is a London-based professional fine art and photography printer. I use them for my prints, and hopefully you'll appreciate the care and professional quality of each print.

I hope you enjoy my prints as much as I've enjoyed making them and viewing them.

Accepted payment methods

Payment
I only accept payment through paypal. I aim to dispatch an order within 5 days of receipt of payment, but typically I'm much quicker than that! I'm happy to cancel any order prior to dispatch.
Shipping
All packages sent 1st class Royal Mail within the UK. Standard Airmail for all other destinations. Your print should be with you within a week of purchase, depending on destination.
Prints come packaged flat, in sturdy card-backed envelopes. Each print is carefully wrapped in protective acid-free tissue, and placed in a film front bag for extra protection.
Refunds and Exchanges
Full refunds apply if a print arrives damaged. If you do somehow feel dissatisfied with your print once it arrives, do let me know and we'll work out what's wrong and how to make you feel happier about things.

Note that I take every effort to ensure that my prints' colours match how they appear on screen. But of course I have no idea what your screen looks like. If you feel the print doesn't look right, do let me know. But I don't offer refunds based on fidelity of reproduction by default.
Additional policies and FAQs
I will gladly take orders for a range of dimensions or print paper types on the prints on offer in my shop. Please contact me to discuss options, pricing and delivery details.
