What kind of photos do I enjoy taking?

The other day I was asked what kind of photos I enjoy taking. It was an interesting question for me, because I hadn’t really thought about it much. I could point you at my Instagram photos and you could probably make a guess at what I enjoy most, but you’d probably come to the wrong conclusion. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy abstract imagery, catching shadows and light playing off each other, black and white architecture etc.        […]

New Year, New Me

It’s already way, way into 2018, and I haven’t even written a decent New Year’s resolutions blog post. How ironic, because I had intended to change things around, pick my life up, move on, etc etc Not that I’ve got much to moan about; I’m pretty chuffed with how life is treating me at the moment. Obviously there’s the obligatory “I really should shoot more” resolution. Or rather, “I really should shoot more portraits” … You see, I think I […]

Review: Saal Digital Photobook

tl;dr Photobook Review I’ve been planning to review Saal Digital’s photobook service for some time now, but of course, as usual, I’ve been busy with other projects. Thankfully, I’ve managed to make some time to get on with it. As full disclosure, Saal Digital provided me with a £40 voucher to use with the proviso that I’d write an honest, unbiased review — their offer hasn’t influenced my opinion, they have no veto on anything I write/say, and what follows are […]

Photowalk: Here Come The Mods

One of the reasons why I enjoy living in Brighton is the traditional August Bank Holiday vibe. Particularly when it comes to photography. And this Bank Holiday was no exception; everyone enjoyed the hot sunshine, and the usual bank holiday sense of freedom from the day job. And of course, there were scooters. I used to have a scooter, a Lambretta Li 150 Series II to be precise, so it’s inevitable I’d be drawn to the Mod invasion, and love seeing […]

Escaping the Creativity Rut

I talked before about how to get out of the creativity rut, how to tweak your photographic creative approach to get the mojo back. And I said I'd share some of my crappy images, just to show how plodding through the downtime will eventually help you escape to the other side. So here's a collection of images which I am totally unproud of. Please don't consider this even close to my usual standard of work. Like I said before, one […]

What to do when your creativity vanishes

I’ve been having a bit of a hard time recently. Creativity, eh? Who needs it? Like most creatives, I go through the usual cycles of ups and downs, of being in and out of the zone. And because I have my camera with me wherever I go, it isn’t usually a problem, because it usually passes quicker than I can imagine, and I don’t even have time to worry about it. Except this time; this time is different. This time […]

Would you swap a GH4 for an X-T2?

I got my Panasonic GH4 sooooo long ago … … Christmas 2015. Ok, so maybe not that long ago, but it seems like ages. It probably is in Digital Camera years, I guess. I was at Film School in Brighton, and needed something for taking video footage. Thing is, I didn’t realise how much I’d missed the pleasure of taking photos until then, and the GH4 was simply lovely to handle, great picture quality, and enough features to keep any technophile […]
