Having left Phillip Island Emily and I decided to head to the Melbourne area for a couple of days. Emily wanted to visit the Victoria Market, which was vast and one of the best markets I have seen, well worth a visit. Obviously my desire to revisit at a more sedate pace was fuelled by […]

For a long time night photography has fascinated me, the patience of the photographers to set up their shots and freeze away waiting for the star trails to appear. With the changing of seasons and a lot of patience on my part for the right time of year when the moon is low enough in […]

Emily and I spent a weekend surfing down at Llangennith Bay.  One of the evenings we were down there the typical wet welsh weather abated so we grabbed our wellies and headed to the beach for a quick walk along the sands.  I was glad I grabbed my camera when the late sun and clouds […]

One of the advantages of living in the middle of nowhere in the English Lakes is that we have plenty of wildlife chilling around.  I am no wildlife photographer but early this spring we had loads of young birds of the feathered variety on our bird table outside our lounge window. They didn’t seem to […]

This post is about how I decided to make a chest harness for my Canon 5d.  Thanks has to go out to @chasejarvis who always provides me with the inspiration and the motivation to drop what I am doing and grab my camera and shoot stuff! These photos came from my own mini photography project to make […]

In late June Emily and I walked from Cat Crag where Ennerdale Youth Hotel is to Wastwater Youth Hostel. Along the way I took some landscape shots including this photomontage I put together of Wastwater. [nggallery id=1]

In the interests of giving my customers the best I decided the other day to get my kit bag up to modern specifications! I had, up to this point been shooting with my trusted companion the Canon 20D but it arrived in the post today.  Shipped out to me in Val D’isere my NEW CANON […]

In December of 2008 I left on a whim to go to Val D’isere for a ski season.  Stopping for a short while on a friends floor, soon I had myself a job and a flat shared with two Spanish guys, an Aussie, a Scot, a vain lad and two lasses.  The stories that followed […]
