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.

Episode #43 – Midnight At The Monsal Head Hotel

This week: I’m taking a short stroll under the cover of darkness, capturing some impromptu night shots. About a month or so ago, I took a trip to Derbyshire for a weekend of camping, walking and photography with a great bunch of prople from the outdoors community. One evening, having stepped out of the pub, […]

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 […]

Stood in seven inches of snow, with exposures somewhere in the region of 30 seconds, I also take the opportunity to talk about night photography, the considerations of working in extreme conditions […]
