Mayfield Lavender on a hot summers day 2018

On a hot summers day, I ventured down to Mayfield, a field in Sutton which is full of Lavender. Lavender is one of my favourite plants and I always love visiting fields of the purple haze. Once you arrive at the field, the smell hits you straight away, the beautiful fragrance wafting up your nose. This is the smell of summer, and it seems a lot of people have the same idea, as the fields are packed. It has become so popular because of Instagram, taking pictures in the fields has become a past-time for the selfie generation.

Bees buzzing around the Lavender

I arrived here as part of a meetup group called London4all, Matt and colleagues had arranged a model shoot in the fields. This is one of the opportunities I don’t turn down. Even though it was an early morning trek from Watford to Mayfield via 2 trains, underground, bus and walking. Arriving at 10.45, it had taken more than 3 hours after leaving early in the morning at 7.30am. But it was great meeting old friends and making some new ones.

Below are a few of my photographs I took on the day, in all over 700 of them were taken with the delightful models. More will be added on my Flickr in the coming weeks, the links are below.

Leave a comment below and tell me your favourite lavender product. I just love lavender ice-cream.

Christmas Tree

December Events 2023

The last month of the year is upon us; I hope you have had a good year. I certainly have, with lots of projects bearing fruit and with lots more planned for 2024. It was the first year I shot over 110,000 photos and attended plenty of events that I still think I have been lucky to attend.

November Events 2023

As the chill in the air deepens and the nights embrace us earlier each day, this is the time of the year when the skies burst alive with the dance of fireworks and our streets become a canvas of twinkling Christmas lights, there are plenty of lights switching on this month. from Oxford Street to Watford Town. Which are all great to photograph.

October Events 2023

October has arrived, and after a record-warm September, will the month continue in the same way? There are lots of events listed below, some of which I will be covering at various press photocalls. Look out for an article later this month on how to get into these events. My annual calendars are nearly ready to be sent to the printers; they will be added to my website in the 2nd half of the month. There will be four calendars: Watford, Fashion, London and my favourite photos from the last 12 months.
