Special access


I love the access you get as a photographer. With a camera as an excuse you can go places where people normally aren't allowed. Crime scenes, prisons, construction sites and military bases, not to mention war. Personally I'm not sure if covering war would be that much fun, but I wouldn't turn it down if I was offered.

Earlier in the week I was invited to have a look inside the Thames Barrier, a place which is extremely well guarded as it is of critical importance to London, and very few people have access to it. The barrier is an awesome - and beautiful - construction, and this is the kind of stuff I love, going behind the scenes to look closer at how it works. Now you can have a look, too!
