This week: I’m trying a new process for capturing the sky at night… Or at least that’s the plan! Just for fun, I recently caught up with a couple of fellow photographers, to shoot a local night time scene featuring star trails. Some quick links to things mentioned in this show: Stansted Park, Hampshire StarStaX stacking [...]

The keener-eyed amongst you will have noticed that there’s not been a lot of activity on The Active Photographer over the past month. This week’s episode brings you up to date with the reasons behind the silence. Some quick links [...]
This week: It’s the third of my shows surrounding this year’s Goodwood Festival of Speed.

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 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 [...]
