A collection of exterior and interior photos of St Matthew’s, a small church in Suffolk under threat of closure.

The Good School Guide book cover illustrations and design, for the London North and London South 2019 editions of The Good Schools Guide. The illustrative style is the same one I created for the special 22nd edition of The Good Schools Guide earlier in 2019 (see here), but with some London specific elements included. I created the front cover illustrations by drawing several school and London related objects and landmarks, which I then arranged to fit the shape of the space either north or south of the river Thames. I also created smaller groups of objects for the back covers.
The volume of good independent and state schools in London makes it particularly hard for parents to find the school that perfectly meets their needs. In response to increasing demand from local and international parents, The Good Schools Guide is launching two new guides, which will provide honest, straight-talking and un-biased reviews.

Published in May 2019, this was the 22nd Edition of the The Good Schools Guide. The brief was to come up with a ‘special edition’ cover design that breaks away from the style of previous editions. I proposed several design options, including this chosen ‘doodle’ style bespoke illustration, which was intended to reflect the witty and often subversive style of the school reviews.
I created the front cover illustration by drawing a group of 60+ school related objects, which I then arranged in the arched shape, and filled in the gaps with additional objects and embellishments. Amongst the items are several small references to the founders of The Good Schools Guide, such as initials and dates. I also created smaller groups of objects for the spine and the back cover.
The book is to be cloth bound in Wibalin Buckram, with the logo area debossed. The dimensions of the book are 28cm x 21cm, with a 6.5cm spine. The book is available to buy for £60.
Part of a documentary photography commission for the East Coast Sail Trust, capturing a taste of the type of trips they offer to schools and youth organisations. The ECST exists to preserve and maintain the Thames Sailing Barge Thalatta, and to introduce young people to the experience of living and working on board her.
I joined a group of eleven year olds from Norwich School on a five day adventure voyage, to photograph them as they worked as a junior crew on board Thalatta, helping with every aspect of running the ship. During the day they made coastal passages from port to port, sometimes stopping to take a trip ashore to a busy town or a remote creek inhabited only by seals. This part of the shoot focused on the night time routine on board, largely unchanged for the 50 years the trust has been operating. Children fill in the log books each evening, play some card games, read a book, then settle down to sleep in their hammocks.

A 150 page book containing the watercolours painted by the Reverend Richard Cobbold of a small rural village in Suffolk. Each painting is accompanied by a transcription of Cobbold’s records and descriptions of the people who lived in the homes depicted. In total Cobbold painted 111 watercolours of the cottages, pubs, mansions, farmhouses workshops and the church, giving a fascinating insight into life in Victorian rural England.
