Taken in 2009 in Montego Bay, Jamaica, I woke up one morning to look up at this amazing sight of the Sun. Never before have I witnessed it with this perfect halo, containing rainbow colours at the rim. I walked around and took snaps for at least an hour, probably nearly blinding myself in the hot carribean sun, this shot however was one of my favourites.

Recording artist Aruba Red sits amongst beautiful marijuana plants in Jamaica. This image was part of a series of shots documenting Aruba's visit to the Island to record with reggae superstar Jah Cure at King Jammy's Recording Studio in Kingston.

Springfield Park in Stamford Hill. Most people that see this image are surprised when I tell them that it was shot in Hackney. Overlooking the river Lea, this picture was taken on a tranquil day in the park, sometimes you don't have to get out of the city to relax...

Breakin Bread @ The Rhythm Factory in Whitechapel Road. A monthly night of crazy b boy battling that took place in the rear of the club. While the funk was spinning I took a break from the action to see what the DJ was up to and took advantage of the red light sitting on the desk, combined with the little Nikon fisheye lens I produced this eye catching image.

A popular image of mine, a lot of people have often expressed feelings of "the last days" when commenting on this. Unfortunately enough, this was taken and a very dark day. On 24th Dec 2004 a man suffering with mental illness problems woke up and went on a mad drive-by stabbing spree across Edmonton and surrounding areas, stabbing 6 people, one of which sadly passed away.
