The power of the individual, the importance of personal brand and the ability for an individual to control what they do and how they do it has never been clearer and easier. All this, even though thanks to the internet, the personal brand has more facets to control, manipulate and keep track of.
I’ve been quite interested recently in repeating three-dimensional patterns. Specifically in lighting, architectural spaces and places where lights and objects can be used to give more life to bland spaces, but also as a way of creating a focal point.
So, I’ve created a new Flickr group to help combine these types of images. Take a look at the slideshow below, or check out the Three-dimensional Repeating Patterns group on Flickr.
Donald Judd describes John Pawson’s work as ‘The simple expression of complex thought’. The exhibition on Pawson’s work at the Design Museum, which ended recently, shows a great overview of his design approach and methodology to architectural practice.
I thought I would share this because, not only is the video really well put together but, the experience for me was amazing and i’d definitely recommend visiting Whistler and Vancouver again.
The video shows how brilliant the skiing and snowboarding in Whistler is, how beautiful the blue sky is in contrast to the snowboarders below and what an excellent playground for snowboarding Whistler is.
Scot Kelby’s Worldwide Photowalk is an event which takes place each year around the world where photographers come together in groups to take pictures within their local areas. Last year I went to the Bristol event, but since moving to London 9 months ago, I decided this year to take part in the Richmond event on this years photowalk day.
I have a few different cameras. The one I most use is my Nikon D90. I can take thousands of pictures and all it costs me is a little electricity and the time it takes to process them. Since the dawn of the new digital revolution with digital cameras popping out of people’s chests across the world at a rapid rate, the price of medium format cameras have gone down! Which makes it a great opportunity to get into it.
I took some time out to visit the Dieter Rams exhibition at the Design Museum.

I thought it might be a good place to see some of his products in the flesh and take a few photos.
