    I’m Back In The Saddle (A Brief TAP Update)

    A quick update for you today… I’m back! Well, technically, I never actually went away – I’ve just been very busy taking care of this and that. If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, you’ll already know what I’ve been up to over the past month or so – and that I’ve had […]

    Your Pictures Are Great. So What?

    Photographers can be very precious about their pictures. And rightly so.

    This week: I’m on location, trying to find a place to get some work done.

    The Reality Of Working On Location

    As I sit writing this, the umpteenth cup of tea by my side, it’s pouring with rain outside. I shouldn’t be here. I should be meandering my way across a hillside somewhere, rucksack on my back and camera/tripod setup over my shoulder. Last weekend saw the annual RSPB Big Wild Sleepout take place throughout the […]

    This week: I’m talking about a recent music-themed photo shoot. Whilst most of what I share with you concerns outdoors activities, you know that I do take on other subjects along the way.
