University of the Creative Arts Award 2010

So yeah i just won this award and a cheque for 200 pounds for my photography work at pyestock.


I just want to thank all my partners in visiting pyestock, my family and all of you who read the blog.  Thanks 😀



Great use of paper and scrap mountboard.  Makes perfect gifts with full customisation.  Blank books took around an hour and a half to make, the pyestock book obviously is an ongoing, lengthy project.

Pyestock People Shots

Before we get cracking, these photos belong to Felix Russel-Saw, and are shots of us on site, rather than shots of the site.  I chose to do this simply because our other shoots don’t flaunt the good times we’ve had during infiltrations.  Copyrights belong to Felix and If you’d like contact details to purchase prints, or request photographic service, let me know and I’ll pass on your details to him.

A Mixed Bag of Pyestock Goodness

Over seven visits, a decade of dereliction,  some of the best times, with the best partners in exploration, crawling through dirt, snow and every tunnel we can find, capturing as much of the beauty and the scale of Pyestock as we can.  The pints in the computer house, the post-explore burgers,  the blood, sweat and the fear, the security scares, the dog chases and the jeep hunts.  The death knell has been rung, but Pyestocks legacy will always live on.

Subterranean Pyestock

So sunday, we spent a fair ammount of time away from the blistering heat, burrowed down in the Subterranean depths of pyestock.  I didn’t take this photos, they are of me, and I am not claiming ownership, I loved how they turned out.  Taken by Adam Thomas, check his work out over at

A brilliant mission today, with security keeping us on our toes, and bumping into some fellow 28dl pals.

Construction Industry

So this afternoon, I ninja’d my way into a building site.  The polar opposite of my usual urbex infiltrations.  The construction rather than dereliction.  Several occasions sinking in wetsand, and over multiple fences, I was in.  So far I have only processed images from the digger depot.  And a view over the wasteland.   Standard hdr overkill.
