Exhibition at Brooklands Museum

I’m very excited to announce that the Spirit of Brooklands project is is being exhibited at Brooklands Museum, officially opening this Saturday (June 15th) to coincide with the biggest event in the museum’s calendar, the annual Double Twelve weekend. There will be a number of the prints on display in the art gallery in the Clubhouse, all of which are for sale with 30% of the takings being donated to the museum.

It’s a great day out, especially if you have kids. They have the first Concorde ever to travel at Mach 2 in the museum and trips aboard can be booked, which is worth doing. They also have the old scale model Concorde that used to sit on the roundabout on the way in to Heathrow Airport, now sitting at the entrance to Brooklands Museum and Mercedes Benz World.

The exhibition runs for 6 weeks, so there’s plenty of time to head down there and check it out!

Brooklands Online at the AOP

I’m very excited to announce that the Association of Photographers (AOP) will be showing my Spirit of Brooklands project as part of it’s online series of members exhibitions. The exhibition will run from May 9th until June 5th and further details can be found at the AOP site.

The AOP have chosen this image of the Clubhouse as the lead image for the promotion, and it was actually the last image that I photographed in the entire series, thanks to a nudge from the editor of the Brooklands Trust Magazine! I quite like the way the lights and stairs look like the headlights and grill on the front of a car.

There’s been a fair amount of publicity for the event so far including online coverage by the London Evening Standard, 55 Baker Street, LondonTown, and Vicinitee.com

I will shortly be announcing another exhibition of prints at the Brooklands Museum so watch this space!

British Spirit Exhibition Online Now

The Association Of Photographer’s (AOP) online exhibition featuring members work that celebrates the theme of British Spirit in this Jubilee and Olympic Year is online now (see it here – http://home.the-aop.org/current-online-exhibition). My submission entitled Jubilee Flags is part of the current exhibition and is being used as the lead image in the article about the show in the AOP’s Image magazine (cue whooping and cheering). A lot of the images are available as limited edition prints direct from the AOP, and the exhibition runs until September 12th, so check it out when you get a moment.

Olympic Must See

If you’re in London during the Olympics, please take time to visit photographer Tom Stoddart’s Perspectives exhibition. It is free to visit and is at MoreLondon right by the Mayor of London’s office and near to Tower Bridge and the Tower of London.

I went to see it yesterday and was extremely moved by the power of the images and the stories that they tell. It’s hard to imagine that these situations occur to everyday people who just happen to be born in a different part of the world to you and I.

The website is here – http://78perspectives.com/ but please do visit in person if you are anywhere near.

British Spirit

The Association of Photographers (AOP) is hosting an online group exhibition of members work to show what Great Britain has to offer in the context of this summer’s Jubilee and Olympic celebrations. The AOP curator has chosen one of my images to be in the exhibition, which runs from July 19th to September 12th. Here are 2 images that didn’t make it in, and I’ll put up the one that did on the Opening Night.
