Now award-winning....

I'm very pleased to have just been crowned RICS Infrastructure Photographer of the Year 2016 for an image I shot of the Lee Tunnel before its completion.

This image was captured as part of a commission for Thames Water last year and The Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors' panel of judges awarded it first place from the hundreds of entries they received.  Lugging my gear laden in heavy PPE through awkward and tight spaces on a cold February morning was stressful... but... getting to view this amazing engineering in person was such a privilege. It's now full of sewage and probably doesn't look quite so pretty! More information at the following links:
