13th January 2017

A belated Happy New Year to all. One year after the re-launch and I am still thoroughly enjoying my photography, the new year brings new opportunities one I am particularly excited about is David Hobby  and his Lighting 103  course, I have followed ( stalked ) David for a number of years and I am a great fan of the ‘Strobist’ style, I would recommend any newbies ( or oldbies ) who wish to learn off camera flash to start here in room 101  and follow David's comprehensive tutorials.

Continuing on from the interesting monthly photography projects The London Lumminists have come up with another set of themes, the first six as follows

Jan - Motion Blur
Feb - HDR
Mar -Self Portrait
Apr - High Key
May - Long Exposure
June - Black & White
 

One of my 2017 photography goals is to explore Essex and create a comprehensive portfolio of images across the County, starting this weekend ! Look out for fresher images from around this great County.

 

 

 

28th November 

The Scotland gallery will be updated shortly to include a number of images from my recent trip to the Isle of Skye with Jon Gibbs. Jon runs workshops around Scotland as well as his home county of Norfolk. The weather was dramatic, changeable and made for some challenging photographic conditions, however a thoroughly enjoyable few days to an amazing part of the British Isles.   

 

28th Sept

Another month fly's by. Updates to Flora and a couple of new images in London. I have sold my Sigma 10-20 will purchase a new wide angle ahead of the Skye trip. September theme was 'Angles' these  I shot on a recent trip to Liverpool. Further work to be done in the London gallery during October.

24th August

 

July and August subjects have been shot and showcased!, images uploaded shortly, odd one out !

I am contemplating adding a ‘Travel’ gallery, may take a little time shifting through holiday snaps but worth considering !

3 months until my trip to the photographers playground on the Isle of Skye, really looking forward to that, not wishing the time away too much, before then I will be out in the local area shooting the changing of the seasons from summer to autumn and ( hopefully ) it’s drama filled skies.

May 5th

Spending time in the studio ( garage ) shooting glasses, splashes and anything I can capture to freeze motion using speedlights.

 

April

This month has been a photographic epiphany. A full on obsession back in the world of image taking. It started with “ I would like a new website” to “ I would like a new portfolio”  I was still using PhotoshopCS3, I have now converted to PSCC and have taken a subscription to Lynda.com to realise its full potential. What a learning curve.  April’s image of the month was courtesy of Lanzarotte.

March 2016

On holiday in Lanzarotte I became obsessed with finding an image I had seen on the internet, I was using google street map to find it, eventually one of my lads found it !   March 'Tipsy' image.

January 2016

50ish shades of Grey,  ok not too bad a theme….. I opted for a B&W image, more important than the image was the actual process of getting out and shooting.

December 2015

I was talking to a good friend of mine,  Chris Shepherd, the conversation swayed onto the familiar subject of photography and the usual excuses of why I wasn’t taking photographs. It had been a while since I embraced the art form ( February 2012 ) I still enjoyed taking casual photos on holiday but nothing outside of that where I would consider worthy of great or interesting work. I came up with my usual excuse of having no time as I juggle family, work and, my other hobby, cycling commitments. “we need a project” The challenge was set, one themed image every month. Not too much to ask for, just one image. Between us we came up with this

                January – 50ish shades of Grey
                February - The tranquillity of Solitude
                March -  Tipsy
                April - The long and winding road
                May - Up and Under
                June - Opposites Attract
