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 […]

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 […]
