Social Media Self-Portrait

Monday, December 24th, 2012

I’ve found one of my biggest challenges for developing portraiture is finding a willing subject.  In an effort to make a start, I forced the one unwilling subject I could to take part.  Me. (more…)

One year ends, another begins

As 2011 rolls into 2012, it’s time to take stock and plan ahead. (more…)

Mid-Year Review

Sunday, July 31st, 2011

Back in January, rather than set myself resolutions I decided on some photography goals to aim for this year.  As we’ve just passed the mid-year point I though it was a good time to reflect on what I hoped to achieve and what more I need to do.  More after the jump… (more…)

The New Year’s variety, rather than pixel count…that’s a whole different topic.

Before I get started, apologies for the hiatus.  There have been some other events going on over the last couple of months which have meant that writing for the blog has had to take a back seat – nothing sinister, just more important.  The result is that this post is a bit later than I would have liked, but it’s still relevant to me, and hopefully to you too.

Durham Cathedral – a different view

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

I’m not a big fan of Chris de Burgh, but he was right when he sang “Timing is Everything” – I feel sure that Henri Cartier-Bresson would agree, the Decisive Moment.  This shot turned out to be about timing in more ways than one.  More after the jump… (more…)

I haven’t been posting recently because of other commitments on my time, but here’s an update on some of my recent work.


Latest developments

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

I’ve had such a lot going on recently that my shooting and processing has had to take more of  a back seat for a little while.  Here are some of the recent developments that have been going on in the background. (more…)

Try something new

Sunday, August 1st, 2010

Earlier this year I was talking with a friend, Ian, about the photography he “majors” in, namely rowing events.  As we discussed it he realised that he could benefit from having a second photographer along; they could add some different angles and shots of details that he normally wouldn’t be able to take because he would be concentrating on the crews.  Besides being a chance to do something that I had never tried before, Ian generously offered to host my pictures on his site, which could lead to some sales.  This made it too good an offer to pass up, so we picked our event (Tyne Head) and started planning.

Durham Cathedral and Memorial

Thursday, July 8th, 2010

Well, last weekend didn’t go quite as planned.  I had hoped to get over to the Lake District on Sunday for my first hill walk of the year but the weather conspired against me.  I didn’t much fancy the advertised 80 mph gusts on the tops, especially when they were going to be covered in cloud anyway!  I would have tested my new bag system too, but that will have to wait for another day.   (more…)

Durham Photo Project

Thursday, June 3rd, 2010

As I pointed out in my “About this blog” page, I think there are always things to learn about photography.  For me, a big part of that learning involves reviewing what I’ve already done, whether that’s the success (or otherwise) of an individual photo or the content of a series of pictures.

So hands up who’s spotted the obvious omission from my portfolio…
