Contgratulations on the PhD, Dr Smith 👏👏👏 Steve is a Londoner and he won't let you forget it. We've spent many years wandering the (often less trodden) paths of the city in all seasons and all weathers. This bearded font of knowledge never fails to bring history alive to the places we pass through. He is as inquisitive as he is knowledgeable...

Architectural Photography - Japanese Inspiration - RIBA East Shortlist 2020

September 30, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
I had the pleasure of photographing this Japanese inspired house for Haysom Ward Miller. The story behind it is a fascinating one, one which challenges our tendency to accept design. Instead of overseeing a proposed structure (the plot they bought came with planning permission), the owners here used their cultural influences and design ideas to set...

Kilkenny Avenue, Ely

September 17, 2020  •  Leave a Comment
Video completed for Palace Green Homes at a former MoD site in Ely. ‘The homes at this development are particularly light and airy inside, with good size rooms and generous storage space, so we felt that it was really important not to clutter them but at the same time, we wanted to show how different types of households could live really comfort...

The Leys Great Hall by Bland Brown and Cole Architects and Charcoalblue

November 27, 2019  •  Leave a Comment
It's amazing how some buildings find a way to hold their own in terms of time and design. This is certainly one of them. A stunning building, which includes this theatre space. I photographed this for my clients back in November 2013 and it still looks as fantastic today. Architect: Bland Brown + Cole Acoustics Consultancy: Charcoalblue Constr...

December 02, 2018  •  Leave a Comment
And it won! I cannot tell you how pleased I have been this past week - we found out that all of the effort photographing Lochside House in the freezing cold Scottish winter has helped its cause. This house has not only won a RIAS and RIBA National Award, but now has been crowned as House of the Year 2018 by the fabulous Kevin McCloud on Channel 4'...
