Happy New Rear!

I’d like to wish you all the very best for 2017. I hope you enjoy celebrating the end of 2016 (it’s been quite a bitch) and look forward to a new year of new hope and new possibilities. Personally, I cannot wait for the new year to begin and look forward with anticipation and hope….

Merry Christmas

Have a lovely Christmas. Whatever, wherever and however you celebrate, have a lovely time.

Turning Friends into Rock Stars

Here is an update on the request I had a while back to find a model for my latest photography assignment. A couple friends stepped up and offered to help and I managed to find an hour with Sarah last week to shoot some photographs. I chose to shoot in London as I am fortunate enough…

Practice makes perfect

As much as I can I am going to try and take my camera with me every day or take a photo with it (at home) every day. I’d also like to extend this to learning Lightroom to get the results I want. I have made a start this week with the following photographs. Check…

Oh… The Exposure!

  Double exposure to be exact… A small series of portraits that reflect the individual and some hidden information about them. Richard – composed with London bus. Enda – Photo of my landing approach into London City airport. Me – Warehouses of NYC I am still on the look out for models for my portrait…

Would you be willing to help?

For the next assignment in my photography course I have to shoot a portrait and try different lighting, props etc to create a music album cover.  I have some ideas but I need a willing volunteer to model for me! Would you have time (and patience) to let me take some portraits of you?  …

I’ve been cheating on you with another…

I have neglected my blog a little of late as I have been incredibly busy but I also have a confession… Since I have embarked on my photography course with the British Academy of Photography I have been keeping myself busy with assignments and learning how to use Lightroom. As I have paid for a…

A brief love affair

You will recall I mentioned not so long ago about being excited to be the owner of a Leica camera.  Well I am about to sell it! Don’t get me wrong, I love it but the photography course I have started ensures that you take all of your photos in manual mode. The Leica can…

Celebrating our 10th Civil Partnership Anniversary 

10 years ago today, Richard and I tied the knot celebrating our union with our civil partnership. I still remember the day like it was yesterday and feel so loved and grateful for that day. I don’t know where the time has gone but we’ve had lots of love and adventures during this time.  Long…

Back in the saddle

This week has been very active but sadly that has not equated to much physical activity. At the start of the week I was in Rotterdam for work,  (Richard went home to Devon and Tilly to her place in the country). Of course, it’s not a long flight but all the usual issues of travelling…

City to city 

Had a work trip to Rotterdam earlier this week. Not much time to relax but it was interesting. Managed to snap some interesting shots flying over London on the return. Also got some fun snaps tied to the conference I attended with thanks to the Axe (Lynx) team and Instagram … As you can see…
