A lovely weekend

VR and Drone Photography

Who would have thought that I would be able to produce HD 360 VR footage of Richard and I flying our drone on the beach!? What is truly remarkable is that the kit we used is consumer grade, off the shelf stuff and all fits within one small bag. Kit list: Yuneec Breeze 4K Drone…

This may come as a surprise…

… I actually managed to get out and go for a run! I finally feel well enough to get my running shoes back on and get back out there. I am not sure my chest/nose would agree as I had to stop a couple times due to the cold air but I am happy I…

A bleak weekend

Not the brightest of weekends but the opportunity to try and capture the mood, the light and the snow with a time-lapse video. This is my largest volume of shots yet to create this time-lapse – nearly 2,000 photos!

London.

All shot on Victoria Embankment, London during a short walk along the Thames to clear my head. It’s amazing what you see when you look.
