Instagram & Photography

I have had a mixed experience with social media with regards to sharing my photography. My photography & my initial website was born long before the creation of the social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc) that we know today. When I first began to use Instagram (October 2010) it appeared to be a platform…

Early Work

Feeling reminiscent so thought I would revisit and republish some of my early work, which dates back to 2005 and 2007. It is weird revisiting my earlier work as it brings back so many memories of the moments when I first took these photos. A time and place a million miles away from the person…

Lockdown 2.0

So here in the UK (well in England at least) we find ourselves 12 days in to another country wide lockdown. All going well it should only last for a month, ending on the 2nd December 2020. Not to sound pessimistic but we were told that last time, and 3 months later it was still…

Selling Prints Online

So I really want to have a go at selling prints of my photos online, preferably via my own website. I have tried this several times before and never found a platform that I’m completely happy with. Firstly I guess it’s the question of would people be interested to buy my work? I’m trying to…

Photo Walks

Last month I read the article “How to lose weight & stay in shape while photo-walking” on the Phoblographer and it got me thinking. Although I have not been trying to lose weight, my photography has definitely led me to be more physically active this year. Slightly forced by the COVID-19 pandemic & subsequent lockdown,…

Wild June

Throughout June I have been taking part in The Wildlife Trusts annual “30 Days Wild” challenge, which I have modified slightly from taking part in something wildlife/nature related to a wildlife/nature photo challenge. The concept has been the same I have been able to enjoy the nature and wildlife around me. As I predicted, I…

30 Days Wild

I have signed up to take part in The Wildlife Trusts annual nature challenge: 30 Days Wild 2020. Each day of June 2020 I endeavour to take & share at least one nature / wildlife photo to highlight the beauty of the natural world that we live in. #30DaysWild I feel that this may be…

Photo Blogging

As a photographer who blogs to share my work (I guess that means I’m a photo blogger). The one thing that I always struggle with when publishing to my photography blog is knowing what to write. I use my website / blog as more of a portfolio of my work than an actual blog. I…

Living In Lockdown

As of Monday 23rd March 2020 at 8:30pm GMT the UK went in to lockdown due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  As we now find ourselves in these unprecedented times of social distancing and social isolation I want to try and record the effects of lockdown in my local community, while obviously abiding by our…

Nikon School: Free Courses

Stuck for something to do during lockdown while we’re stuck in the house? Why not learn a new skill or add to an existing skill set. One of my good friends brought this to my attention so thought I would share it. Nikon has generously provided their Nikon School: Online classes, free until the end…

Photography vs Lockdown

I’ve not been posting to my website as much of late. As for one reason or another I’ve not had the time or the motivation to blog. So I’m going to try and use some of my new found extra spare time to blog more and spend more time on my photography. I’ve previously only…
