Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you’ve had a wonderful year and enjoy the festive period. Richard and I have had a lovely year and have enjoyed a mix of travelling, spending time with family and friends and getting married (we were already legally married but on our 11th anniversary we converted…

A Strong Spirit Transcends Rules

You may know I am a huge fan of Prince and felt such a loss when he passed.  Princes sister and Paisley Park Studios decided to tour some of his artefacts which are on display in an exhibition in London where Prince famously played 21 Nights (and I saw several of those nights).  At first I thought…

Up there with Martin Parr?

I have entered another Photography competition – this time, Art on a Postcard. The Hepatitis C Trust’s fundraising arm, Art on a Postcard will transform into Photography on a Postcard for the month of October. We plan to replicate the success we’ve had in the art world with photography and we are looking for upcoming talent…

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…

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

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…
