I have to be honest, I was totally uninterested in the London Olympics and thought it would be a waste of time and money.  I was wrong, so very, very wrong.   From the Olympic Opening Ceremony to the closing of the Paralympics, I was hooked.  I watched everything, from beach volleyball to equestrian events,  and I wanted to try and capture this.  For me it was the people, their spirit, the way they supported and celebrated it.

That is what I have tried to do with these photos, to show how proud I am to be to be British AND a Londoner.

The photos of Mods are how I started taking photos.  These are a selection from my book ‘Saturdays Kids‘- a photographic biography of the 80’s and early 90’s mod scene.
