Hiraeth, a feeling of homesickness for something or somewhere that does not exist anymore or has never existed in the first place was always a word that struck a cord with me and a feeling that resonated through me and my nostalgia towards places I have never visited or have only seen as a result of other people’s creative work, mixed with how rarely I am able to leave London I had to do something about it.
My love of art nudes and working with nude models and creative souls has always been something that I wanted to push into landscape work. It has taken years for me to develop the easy relationships and confidence needed to start putting things into action, not to mention months of planning and scraping the pennies together to try and make it happen.
presented in chapters
Hiraeth is presented in chapters shown below, each chapter has corresponding prints available, strictly limited to only one of each being available to purchase.
We opted to bring in some specialist fine art papers to print them on, 305gsm cotton rag with a light texture, each print has is hand produced to order and given a one inch art border, signed as 1 of 1 and then framed up in beautiful deep box frames with a black colour, gallery sealed to protect the print and then fitted with a hanging wire.
Stunning images shot to be incredibly collectible, I consider much of this project to be some of my finest photography and hope that you enjoy it as much as I loved making it for you. Our large editions on Ninjaprints are unavailable elsewhere as we wanted to offer something exclusive to our members.
Shot in the stunning hills and valleys of the UK’s Lake District, Chapter One gets off to a flying start thanks to the ever amazing Valentina who braved the freezing conditions to help me bring the first part of the series to glorious Life.

Chapter Two was shot a little more locally, in the surprisingly versatile and beautiful Epping Forest of London which consists of glades and woodland in the North of London.
Suzzi is an outstanding professional nude model I have worked with in the past and the opportunity was too good to miss on her UK tour so I snapped her up to help me capture Chapter Two among the cracked dry earth and woodlands of the forest.
