New book by Ishmahil Blagrove and Margaret Busby – to be released this month. This is the first ever book to be published on the carnival, based on two years of research, with narrative from early pioneers and community of Notting Hill, as well as photographs.
Thanks to Ishmahil, one of my photographs is included in the book, which is awesome. Press Release below.
The photograph used (it’s on the preface) is from the 2012 Notting Hill Carnival (Paraiso School of Samba)

Some photographs from MCM this weekend. The biggest by far as the organisers opened up both sides of Excel. As always, really great people there who were only too happy to pose for shots, but for me it was way too overcrowded. I like there to be enough room so you can find a plain background to take a portrait but this wasn’t a runner in the main venue. Didn’t help that the DLR was also bust but I’ll be back again for sure.
Thanks to Lindsey at the Londonist for using some of my pictures in their gallery and for the credit.
If you see yourself here – thank you – and get in touch if you would like the full res files.
I spent Friday dodging the rain and trying to get some shots. A few candids below and I have some portraits to post.
This one was picked up by the Londonist, which was nice. Posted on their facebook page, tweeted etc.
Some sort of impromptu shoot on the strand.
First set of shots from Notting Hill 2013.
