First Wedding Meeting of 2018!

Today was my first wedding meeting of 2018, a great young couple tieing the knot only the week after next.  It brought me to realising that I’ve never actually blogged many of my wedding photographs and so here are a set from last summer between Mark and Rachel.

Been wanting to shoot this location for ages!

Queen Elizabeth Country Park Star Trails

Loving the clear winter sky’s recently! Snapped this beauty at Queen Elizabeth Country Park in Horndean earlier this week.

Isambard Brunel Car Park

As part of an ongoing exploration of the non-place I am closing in on several categories of space.  The view is to create a typology of non-place.  A photographic record of the world around us.  A world which we frequent on a regular basis but rarely think of as anything special.

In this particular instance I visited a 24 hour car park in the city of Portsmouth.  Car parks at night have always been photographically attractive to me and I’ve often referred to them as ‘playgrounds of light’.

The car park in question has motion activated lighting, so as to save on energy bills.  This feeds directly in to the notion of place and space.  This mundane of structures stands in the darkness while disused but springs to life when the motion lights are triggered.  This illumination converts that place in to a space with the presence of humans.  The presence of a purpose.
