More London and a Weekend of Photography 

I made myself take a proper lunch break in the week and took my Fuji X70 out with me on my walk. I had no plan and no route but snapped away whenever I felt inspired. Some things I’ve shot before. Some I haven’t.  I also tried a more abstract approach to street photography which…

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.

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…

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…

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…

Inner Sanctum

Pet Shop Boys play 4 nights of their new show Inner Sanctum at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, London and we managed to go to opening night. Not sure what to expect, not wanting a show full of boxes (Pandemonium) and not really liking the new album Super I was unsure about the evening. I had…

A busy week spent at Mark Zuckerberg’s London office!

Well I was in his manor for most of this week as we had a colloborative event with Facebook this week which my team produced and ran. I did not get to meet Mr Z but we did manage a mild coup in that Mark kindly recorded an opening video for the broadcasts which was…

#dogwoodweek7

Portrait: Faceless. Tell someone’s story without showing their face. I struggled with this challenge a) because I didn’t know who I was going to capture b) because I thought it would be odd snapping someone random who was hard at work with my phone… Inspiration finally struck me on Thursday whilst I was on the…

Lunchtime run

Squeezing in a run has been difficult and my work flow seems to be getting heavier so I was determined to manage a run today.   I managed to schedule 45 minutes from my day and headed out around 1130.   It was armistice day today so I was mindful that there would be large…
