December 7, 2019 10:24 PM Blog
So, a hustings is taking place and you volunteer yourself to capture on camera for the Town Council the event from both the audience perspective and the overall atmosphere for something that has the potential to have a varied response of mixed emotions – but what you forget is that the town hall has had a new coat of paint and is not at all like it was the last time I was in there!An hour before the event I pop up to set up my speed lights, two lights, one either side of the speakers seating. ......

Finding Inspiration
April 6, 2018 7:54 PM Blog
Photography is an absolute pleasure to get involved in, it can put you in all sorts of places and situations where normally, without a camera, you would feel quite out of place and often vulnerable. Not only does photography allow you to be at that extraordinary place or involve you in some amazing experiences, it also, after time, provides an opportunity to look at things differently, a socket on a wall, shadows on the pavement, raindrops on glass…. You start to notice the abstract and a ......
