In the always varied world of freelancing, this past month I have interviewed architects in far flung places – Moshe Safdie in Massachusetts, USA, and Barrie Ho in Hong Kong – for profile pieces to be published in Property Report, a magazine which covers architecture, design and technology. I should perhaps clarify that I didn’t go to these far-flung places; …

The Indie Book & Zine Fair on Saturday was very enjoyable. An interesting and enthusiastic bunch of stallholders were there, and it was really nice seeing their work and chatting in person. This was a new event I only recently decided to organise, and so those signing up didn’t really know how it would go – but there’s a certain …

Exciting update: there has been plenty of interest and it is happening, with a fabulous range of people taking part! Below is a very small selection of work by the 20+ stallholders; but of course …

I enjoyed doing an interview recently with Ron Bakker, a Dutch-born, London-based architect whose varied portfolio includes The Edge in Amsterdam, dubbed the smartest office building in the world. On arrival at the state-of-the-art office employees’ phone apps locate an available parking space; the electric cars are charged for free; a room with a sky view can be virtually booked …

My second book, Build A Fire, combines writing and photos, documenting a trip from Maine to Florida in vignettes and snapshots. Because I was travelling mostly off the tourist trail, and am naturally curious about people and ‘real’ life, I captured many idiosyncratic images that are – in my mind anyway! – more interesting than a selfie in front of …

A satisfying aspect of my job is starting with the seed of an idea and getting to the completion stage – and it’s satisfying not just for me, but for clients too. A recent project involved producing a book containing recipes, poems and songs. These had been handed down by my client’s mother – songs had been sung and poems …

What’s it all about? It features observations, brief encounters, adventures, mundanities and day-to-day delights, all experienced while I was on the road in …

When people ask why I self-published my first book, there’s a particular image that comes to mind: the box arriving from the printers, opening it up and scooping a copy from under the polystyrene packaging, like a kid who’d won a lucky dip prize at the fair. I felt such excitement and an immense sense of satisfaction. Here was my …
