Hey friends What a strange year this has been, right? Yet curiously this has been a year in which I have probably taken the greatest leaps in my photography for some time. I’ve been pushed into being more creative, more expressive and more imaginative with less resources that I have for a long time. It’s […]

Hey folks, How are you doing right now? I hope things are good wherever you are. This is Diana today, hello! The more we are in lockdown the more Anthony and I are asking ourselves, what are we learning from this experience? What can we do with this time to help us live and create […]
Hey everyone, Hope this finds you very well. Today I have swapped the wintery life of London for the heat and vibrancy of Mexico City. I am a little tired of course from the long flight, but there is nothing like beating jet lag with the excitement of being in an incredible country like Mexico. […]

Hey folks, Today I want to bring you some very relevant and useful pieces of creative wisdom from the late, great writer Henry Miller.

I spend a lot of time shooting at dawn. I have created several projects around the cities at dawn theme. I love the light, the emptiness and the serenity of the hours around sunrise. People often say to me about my dawn escapades – Oh I could never do that. I’m too much of a […]
“Your days pass like rainbows, like a flash of lightning, like a star at dawn. Your life is short. How can you quarrel?” Buddha Last night I arrived in Istanbul. I was greeted by a sultry, warm city. As we drove through the dark streets, illuminated by the many cafes and little shops, and into […]
Hello everyone, How are you? Last night Di read a piece to me from a book she is reading by Brene Brown (It’s The Gifts of Imperfection, she’s loving it.) She got excited when Brown started discussing creativity and how we are all innately creative. Listen to this! She said to me. When thinking about being creative […]
