Back in March I went to Belgrade to photograph a feature on city life for National Geographic Traveller.
I timed my trip perfectly to coincide with the Beast from the East. The weather was mostly awful, although I got a two hour window towards the end of my stay when the sun came out.
The problem was the pictures were for June Issue of the mag. It was certainly a challenge, contending with the snow, hats and scarves, and Christmas decorations still hanging around town. I've never had to think so hard on my feet and come up with some creative angles. Fortunately there was a lot to photograph inside the beautiful churches and museums about town.
Here is a selection of images and cuttings from the mag, and a BTS pic courtesy of my friend and travel buddy Chavala Madlena.
Back in February I did a feature for Easyjet Traveller mag, joining Thom and James from Pizza Pilgrims on a whistle-stop tour of the Naples pizza scene. Hands down best Margerita I've ever had.

My friend and fellow photographer Richard Bradbury recently sent me a copy of his new book Rich Photographer Poor Photographer, in which he included a section about me and my work as an editorial photographer. I'm really honoured to be included in this excellent reference guide for budding photographers looking to set up their own business. My advice - be decisive! If you have a hobby you're passionate about and want to pursue as a business then you have to throw yourself into it. When I started out I didn't have a clue what I was doing. In the beginning it's important to create a business plan, to network, build an online presence. At the same time it's hard to disguise the fact that you're acting blind. Personally not knowing what's around the next corner was part of the excitement, as well as meeting new people and making new friends.
