Commercial work re-cap

As I'm working on my new website at the moment, I realise there's nowhere I can show evidence of my published commercial photography, namely, the work I did helping the think-tank BritainThinks, who were running the consumer engagement plan for Smart Meters. I travelled to focus-group sessions in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff and captured the meetings in full swing.
They've added my photos to their Consumer Engagement Plan document found here on pages 2 - 6:

2013, a year in Sexism

Very well put together by the Guardian, http://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/womens-blog/2013/dec/20/2013-year-in-sexism

including a report on UKIPs largest donor, Demetri Marchessini, on how women are just.. getting it all wrong!


"Walk along any street and you see women using trousers like a uniform every single day. This is hostile behaviour. They are deliberately dressing in a way that is opposite to what men would like. It is behaviour that flies against common sense, and also flies against the normal human desire to please."

Marchessini said women should not wear trousers because they are meant for men's bodies. He said: "The interesting thing about this phenomenon is that, because women cannot see themselves from the rear, the vast majority of women are unaware that trousers are very unflattering to them. Trousers are made for men's bodies, which are mostly straight up and down. "Women's bodies on the other hand consists of curves. Women have big bottoms – they are meant to have big bottoms. Countless women who would look lovely in dresses or skirts are embarrassingly unattractive in trousers."
