Sao Paulo skyline

Yes Rio has the beach and the jungle and the weather, and Sao Paulo is a concrete jungle like no other, on the surface an ugly grey metropolis, but dig a bit deeper and there’s a lot more to the place than meets the eye, it’s not all about looks you know…

I’m back in England at the moment, but I think of you often Brazil, Eu voltarei em breve meu amigo.

Rio city guide in this month’s National Geographic Traveller

In this month’s National Geographic Traveller UK is my eighth feature for the magazine, this time it’s about a place I know well – a city guide to my adopted second home of Rio de Janeiro. Sandwiched in between the World Cup and the Olympics next year, and struggling with an economic downturn, the ‘cidade marvelosa’ (marvelous city) still shines brightly and remains a top destination, whether you’re looking for great beaches, music or a joie de vivre that is difficult to find anywhere else.

Summer Solstice at Glastonbury with Arcadia

It’s that time of year again, the longest day of the year in the UK, so here’s to wish you all a happy summer solstice! I spent mine on site here at Glastonbury festival, where I’m currently shooting the setup and performance practices for Arcadia – which for anyone who doesn’t know is a giant spider stage, made of reclaimed metal, that has lazers for eyes and shoots fire out of the top, with aerial performers hanging from various points on it. They’ve added loads to the show this year, which I’ll also be photographing, more coming soon…
