Photojournalism isn’t my calling I’m more at home in my studio, embarking on a personal project Calais the jungle refugee camp photography became secondary. When it comes to personal work there’s times you just have to experience and understand other aspects of photography and what my fellow collegues endue for the news and public at large.
Calais the jungle refugee camp photography
Embarking on a journey with my fellow photographer Chris Sweeney we set off to Calais, it was a cold wet December evening in Glasgow as we boarded the overnight coach to London before continuing over the channel to Calais. We were on the road for three days these are a few of my images from the project. I will no doubt add more and write more about the trip in future blogs.

It’s very quiet after what seemed like a war zone which it wasn’t but the appearance of the night sky drama would have indicated a battle took place when it never did.
