Stockholm Insights: For Reds, By Reds.

“…there’ll be thousands of Reds, we will be pissed out our heads, ’cause United are going to Stockholm.”

That’s how the famous chant has been going since we dreamed of winning a European Cup in Glasgow in 2002. The big difference between then and now is that Manchester United are now in the final of a European competition, we once considered to be reserved for smaller clubs like Fulham and Liverpool.

One year in Sweden

It was this weekend last year that I packed my bags and moved to Sweden. During this past year I have spent most of my time in Stockholm, where I have met many great people and built some lifelong friendships. In addition to that, I have noticed that Sweden and the great people that inhabit this beautiful country are just a little bit different in every way. Thus, what follows […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Selfies

In the run up to Christmas a simple project that I began in 2010 managed to catch the attention of the media, from New York to New Zealand. It was a simple experiment that I started in Gothenburg, Sweden as I attempted to travel by train from the Arctic to the Equator (Narvik, Norway to Singapore).  The objective was to talk a photo of myself each day at 3pm with the background […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Majorca

Majorca, or Mallorca is the largest island of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean Sea.   The Balearic Islands have been an autonomous region of Spain since 1983, with the capital of the island, Palma, being the capital of the autonomous community of the Balearic Islands.   All phoneographs captured on a Nokia Lumia 1020, using my 1MinutePhoto technique.                                 Got an event coming up?  Want to create a buzz on social media?

The Phoneographer Explores: Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has a documented history that spans over 3,000 years, but there are facts to suggest that Sri Lanka had pre-historic human settlements dating back to at least 125,000 years.  Its geographic location and deep harbours made it of great strategic importance from the time of the ancient Silk Road through to World War II.  Sri Lanka is a diverse country, home to many religions, ethnicities and languages. An undiscovered island, you […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Barcelona

Set on a plain rising gently from the sea to a range of wooded hills, Barcelona is Spain‘s most cosmopolitan city and one of the Mediterranean’s busiest ports. Restaurants, bars and clubs are always packed, as is the seaside in summer. The city’s avant-garde chefs whip up a storm that has even the French reaching for superlatives. You might get the impression it’s dedicated exclusively to hedonism, but it’s a hard-working, dynamic place […]

The Phoneographer Explores: U Magazine ‎HighStreetStyleAwards‬

Friday 10 October 2014 – the date that I attended my first ever fashion award show. My feeling this morning is that I hope that it won’t be my last. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I can’t wait for the next one. I will openly admit that when I received the invites to attend the U Magazine event at Lillie’s Bordello I was not overly enthusiastic. However, […]

The Phoneographer Explores: Beach Rugby

Beach rugby is a sport that can be based on either of the rugby codes, union or league as, unlike beach football or beach volleyball, there  is no centralised regulation of the sport. Leagues are common across Australia, South Africa and Europe, but I found it quite bizarre that the sport was particularly popular in the Spanish island of Majorca – not exactly a traditional Rugby stronghold. Casual games are played across the world […]
