A blog about photography from



Dr Sophie Read

I’ve been photographing female fellows at Christ’s College, Cambridge, for a couple of years now, and Dr Sophie Read was my last commission in the series. It’s been a massive honour to shoot this set of pictures – fascinating people in wonderful surroundings. What’s not to like?

Last week I was dispatched by The Saturday Times to photograph Chris Jones, a reader who had his personal finances analysed for a feature in the Money section of the paper.

Farming in The Gambia

Spending a week in a small village in rural Gambia still ranks as my my most enjoyable job as a photographer to date. I was commissioned by the Medical Research Council to photograph the activities that happen in and around one of their field stations, which range from nutritional research to healthcare.
