I am a Uganda-based freelance photographer, and this is a receptacle for whatever I'm toying with at the moment, varying greatly in quality like the goat stew which so often powers it. Personal blog etc.

I’ve been doing lots of work on my website for the past few days, stretching my very basic understanding of HTML to the limit (read: copying and pasting other people’s advice into my site until it works) and it’s now … Continue reading
I teach photography to people occasionally- nothing particularly complex, just basic handling of SLRs and the outline of how to make pictures a little better. Recently a couple of students from the first class I ran contacted me. They wanted … Continue reading
(I was using my new old Nikon F2 all weekend so some film-based images will arrive as soon as I process the films)
If you haven’t heard already, Vogue Italia’s most recent issue is titled “Rebranding Africa”, and from what I’m reading it hasn’t managed to save the continent. My issue hasn’t turned up yet of course, the post must have been delayed. … Continue reading
Six years and two months ago I was in Lima, aged 18 and enjoying the tail end of a very good gap year. I posted on my blog (which was called Eloquencias, despite being nothing of the sort) something about … Continue reading
In amongst my frustration (and later concern) at the Invisible Children “#Kony2012″ video I have still been working, and this post is about a fascinating day I spent this week with Shelter and Settlement Alternatives at one of their projects … Continue reading
During the This is Uganda festival last Saturday I put up a bit of cloth backstage and shot portraits of some of the performers (it was easier in the early afternoon when it was less busy, so there’s nobody featured … Continue reading
I was in the Ssese Islands over the weekend to shoot something for a UN publication on the subject of the HIV/AIDS rate amongst the fishing communities there, and I did the work. However (as Andrew Green, the writer I … Continue reading
Yesterday was one of the most fun days I have ever had. The Uganda Cranes playing the Kenya Harambee Stars at Namboole Stadium, Kampala, and I had press passes. Absolutely wonderful. I’d never been to a large football game before, … Continue reading
I knew I had a blog somewhere… Gosh, I have been silent for too long. First nothing was going on, so I didn’t write anything. Then life got very busy all of a sudden and I didn’t have time to … Continue reading
All will be explained shortly.
It’s one of those things- if you’re surrounded by soldiers, OF COURSE you’re going to get a picture with them. This is the latest addition to my photo album. This is for my niece Sophie, who apparently doesn’t understand why … Continue reading
I have seen RPGs before. They’re funny because they look like toys. A gun is a gun, but an RPG is a stick with a rugby ball on the end and it looks comic unless it’s pointed at you. What … Continue reading
My blog made it past the 10,000 hit mark today at around 2pm. This is a momentous milestone for me, and for my blog which is still two months away from its first birthday. So to thank everybody who has … Continue reading
Riding in a campaign motorcade is an experience which is hard to quickly summarize. There is a constant din of horns, the cars swerve constantly and whenever they stop there is a flurry of activity as the security personnel jump … Continue reading
I’ve noticed a certain amount of traffic reaching this blog via the search term ‘Slumberland Hotel Arua’. I stayed at the Slumberland and I suppose it would be remiss of me not to do a brief review for the benefit … Continue reading
Running through my Ugandan archive today I found a few shots which had been overlooked for various reasons- some because they didn’t fit a particular narrative, some because the students had shot similar images, but here they are:
These are a few of the rushes from my recent Busoga Trust work. I will put up more once I have shown them to the trustees.
I’ve recently done a little work for the Busoga Trust, a water and sanitation NGO working in Uganda. It’s been brilliant work (though I still have to get down there to finish off!), and such a worthwhile charity. More pictures … Continue reading
