This week: It’s the first show of 2013 and another sneaky peak behind the scenes at preparations for this year’s Focus on Imaging. One thing I did manage to take time out for, though, was a day spent gathering exclusive content behind the scenes at another of this year’s Focus On Imaging press advert photo [...]

This week: I’m talking through a recent Christmas-themed commission. Every year, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard puts on its Victorian Festival Of Christmas event – and I was asked to document proceedings a couple of days ago, with the pictures destined for all manner of promotional opportunities in the coming weeks and further into the future. Some [...]
This week: I’m on the road again, heading back from shooting portraits for business. Swapping the chilly outdoors for the comfort of a warm office, this was a really nice little 2-hour commission, creating some basic portraits for a business in Surrey. Some quick links to things mentioned in this show: Nikon D3 SLR Nikon [...]
A quick heads-up folks… In case you missed the Facebook update I put out earlier today, those lovely people at Aquapac and Sigma Imaging have teamed up to offer some great prizes in a new competition… I won’t repeat all the details (instead, see the link below), but suffice it to say that on offer [...]
This week: I’m bringing you my third and final recording made live at this year’s Goodwood Festival Of Speed. On this particular occasion, I’m heading out into the motorsport paddock one blustery evening, to see what striking images I can get with a very simple setup – one camera, one super-wideangle lens and a tripod. [...]
This week: I’m heading back from the Goodwood Festival Of Speed, sharing a few thoughts about this year’s motoring event. With fast-paced cars, motorbikes, extreme sports, display stands and more, it was a busy few days under commission from Goodwood once again, so my view of the event was a somewhat hectic one. Some quick [...]
In all, I recorded 18 conversations with various people from the photographic industry whilst at Focus On Imaging 2012. These recordings would stretch out for weeks if I included just 1 or 2 in each weekly podcast, so I’ve compiled them into a series of six 40-minute(ish) ‘Focus Extra’ shows for you. In no particular [...]
A lot has changed within photography over the years – film technology, the digital revolution, the manufacture of sharper lenses… But has it really made that much difference to the way we shoot and the imagery we produce?
This week: I’m heading out at the end of the day, to capture some striking new images for my website and portfolio. Twilight is a fantastictic time of day, but brings its own set of technical considerations where photography is concerned. Taking a stroll around a local marina, I discuss what is in front of [...]
This week: It’s another look into the considerations surrounding one of my latest shoots. This one had it all – colour, fun and context. The great thing about photographing kids when they’re engrossed in an activity is that the shots look really natural. Working with natural light means I can move around freely, capturing a [...]
This week: I’m taking a few minutes to think back to where it all began… Some time ago, my late Grandparents’ house was sold. A few days before contracts were exchanged, I took the opportunity to take one last look at the house – specifically the room which, for a while, saw some of my [...]
This week: I’m following up on last week’s location recording, unpacking my kit bags afer a second shoot for the same client. Just what is involved in photographing a conference? What equipment do you need… and what can you do without? Are you mad on a mountain bike, here in the UK? Do you go [...]
