Calais
 
Information
The Jungle camp in Calais is home to 6000 refugees from the Middle East and Africa. After spending several weeks and several thousand dollars more and more people are arriving at this make shift refugee camp daily. To describe the Jungle as a camp is misleading as this is unlike any ‘refugee camp’ I’ve visited before. It’s a stretch of open muddy ground that the arrivals have made home out of old tents, tarpaulin and hand me down sleeping bags. The lucky ones get a donated broken down caravans or a garden shed to live in, these are reserved for families with young children.

Since my previous visit last year the port is now surrounded by four meter high fencing and patrolled by hundreds of French CRS riot police. What remote chance these people had of getting across the channel last year has been reduced to zero. This is a situation that will just get worse as the winter arrives.

I’ve donated an image to the charity Prints for Refugees which has been set up to raise funds to help bring some relief for the growing number of refugees arriving in Europe. The site has received donations from photographers which are all on sale.

What Women Want
 
Information
Was on a panel discussion on the subject of ‘What Women Want’. It was part of The Drum Network Awards day in London. The talk was around ‘femvertising’ which is this ridiculous phase about advertising to women. As the only man on the panel I hope I didn’t make too much of an arse of myself.

Talk at LCC University of the Arts
 
Information
It's the season to be talking or so it seems. Did a talk to the BA(Hons) Photography students at LCC University of the Arts today. That's the third university talk in a month and it's something I always enjoy as I find it inspiring to chat with students about the photography business today. With the numbers of new hopefully entering the profession it's quite a daunting thing for people to do. I just hope I've given them so useful advise today.

Princes Trust
 
Information
CHI asked me to work with them on the new campaign for Prince's Trust. The idea was an overhead shot of a room or space showing a young person in some of the situations many of the people they work with find themselves in be it as a carer, unemployed or homeless. At first it was suggested we shot it in a studio and built a set which isn't really the best approach as I feel it's best to find real locations as they work much better. After some hard searching by Darren from Locate production we found the right locations and rigged up a supper wide from the ceiling.
