HMP Shrewsbury

Take a look at my latest shots from inside of HMP Shrewsbury.

Between 1902 and 1961 the seven people were executed by hanging within the walls of HMP Shrewsbury for the crime of murder. Executions took place at 8.00 am. All executed prisoners were buried in unmarked graves inside the prison, as was customary.

#BW Challenge

So As The Title suggests i decided to participate in the 5 day #BW challenge.

So for 5 days you had to post up a black and white image every day to your social media pages and tag other people to nominate to do the same. 
For me this was a great way to try to capture an image that was pleasing and could hold its own without a story behind it.

Here are my five :)


London Calling..

So earlier this week i was invited to a photography walk in London by a local photographer that i have befriended called Micheal Bhatia.

Being back in London was AWESOME, the whole vibe hits you as soon as you arrive on the platform at euston and especially so when passing through the underground tube system.

Me and micheal spent the best part of 3-4 hours chatting taking some snaps of the city, Michael began to tell me about the photography walk we had come to London for.

At this point i knew Little to Nothing about who was heading the walk and what it was about.


Well at 6pm i was introduced to Nasim Mansurov of

It wasn't until mid week that i found out after meeting Nasim, Who Nasim was and What Nasim meant to the photography community. 

I can honestly say in my naivety, Nasim is one of those people that is completely honest, humble and down to earth. He not only spent 4 hours dedicated to the group out of his time for FREE giving tips, advice and sharing knowledge to all ranges of skilled photographers but also at the end of the night gave critique and insight to peoples portfolios to which i am greatful i was apart of that evening.

Thanks Nasim for the Positive words and critique in my photography portfolio but also giving me guidance in where i should place my time and energy to grow as a photographer.

Thanks Everyone!

Tammy King - Musician

Pleased to hear that not only a friend is doing well but managed to get a photo published in a newspaper what a great day!

Here is some of the article

Tammy King, aged 22, was asked by her university lecturer to take part in the Roland (a Japanese manufacturer of electronic musical instruments) Academy Tour 2013/14, playing to BTEC/A Level 16 to 18 year olds.

Tammy added: "The tour's aim is to talk and promote how we as musicians would use Roland and Boss products, in our careers as well as doing a solo performance and a couple of band performances.

"We are temporarily endorsed by Roland right now and if we do a good job, we may be able to keep the gear and even become official endorsers!"

Aside from the tour which visits Edinburgh, Surrey and Leicester, Tammy is writing new songs with The Tammy King Band, making appearance's on other artists recorded tracks and appearing for the occasional function band.

Formerly a performer for Tamworth-band Everybody Looks Famous, Tammy has enjoyed a big year which has included performing at the LG Arena's Forum Stage ahead of a Pink gig to thousands of music fans.
