Daniel Grant.

Categorised as ART., PHOTOGRAPHY.

Spending two months on a P & O cruise taking photos of all the pensioners on board would be cool in an “actually, these guys are pretty interesting” way for about a week. After that I’d imagine it would get soul-destroyingly dull, but what do I know? Daniel said the engineers on board the ship were way better models for photos, so I’m basing my analogy exclusively on that.

Daniel Grant is a young photographer from Ipswich who sent us a charmingly meek email about how he’d only just plucked up the courage to get in touch. He should have showed us his photos time ago because we love them all. I asked Dan how he got in to taking pictures and he told me this: “I fell into photography last Summer, going around photographing old cars and progressed from there. I see photography as more and more something that is out of my hands.┬áIt’s the most natural thing to me, focusing increasingly on the unpredictable.”

This is Josey, named after Josey Wales because she is a legitimate outlaw, and our newest pooch who is an English Bull Terrier, pulling an incomprehensible face.

Some freezing cold night on top of a car-park rooftop, phosphorescent in that darkness.

I had a two month contract on board a P&O cruise ship as a photographer, and the engineers were far better models in comparison to the octogenarians that were a few decks above us on that floating retirement home.

Bringer of rain.

There’s so much I could say that would be obvious, so much I could say that would be misinterpreted, either way, no time.

We cycled to the top of Almeria and found this amazingly desolate basketball court, I climbed a flight of boulders and snapped this shot overlooking all that was in the town.
