born November 4, 1946 – died March 9, 1989 On March 9 1989 I arrived at work in the London studio where I was an assistant to an advertising photographer and my boss walked in and announced Robert Mapplethorpe had died. Mapplethorpe was one of the most talked about photographer /artist/ image creators of his generation and his photography prints were achieving record amounts in the New York sale rooms. There was no internet in 1989, so news travelled slowly through people who worked in the business and news stories in London about him were rare and so one hung on to every last word you heard. He was an inspiration to me and so when I travelled to New York later that year to work on a photo shoot, top of my list was to go check out Bond St to see where his studio had been. My career in photography was just beginning while Mapplethorpe’s life had just ended, cut tragically short by Hiv / Aids at only 42 years. His work divided opinion and caused huge controversy, particularly when his exhibitions came to town. 30 years on from his death I still find his images enduring and […]

I bought my Canon70d in April 2014 from Camera World in Wells Street London I recently lent it out to a friend and it came back to me with a fault. The rear touchscreen monitor was displaying some hazy pink noise and then suddenly it completely failed and would not power up. I had taken over 9000 images with the camera and up until this point I had not experienced any problems at all. I can thoroughly recommend the 70d as a great camera for both stills and video, the 70d has an excellent auto focusing system which makes it great for fast moving video . Unfortunately the manufacturers 12 month guarantee has now expired and so I will have to pay for the repair. I took the camera into Jessops in Shrewsbury last week and I have now had the news that the repair is going to cost me £228.00 , apparently a circuit needs to be replaced and then the camera also needs a full service. This sounded rather a lot of money but I feel it was worth it as the camera to buy new is still close to £1000. My moto from now on is Don’t […]
