So another year over, a new one to begin (paraphrasing here)…… I had big plans for this year. Taylor Wessing portrait prize, Royal Academy Summer show…..other varied photo projects…but as my fellow countryman said, “The best laid schemes of mice and men / Go oft awry” This time last year my wife and I were […]
I have been asked in comments section on original post about “the girl who likes hats“, how I took and post processed the images. So this is a very short piece about that. First off. My mum is old and frail and can’t stay standing for long so I had to use a comfortable low […]
My mum: She has Alzeihmers. It wasn’t a shock to find out when it was eventually diagnosed as my grandmother had it as well. My gran moved in to live with our family shortly after her husband died in the 70’s. I remember as a small boy thinking she was quite mad and I am […]
When apple introduced the orignal iphone the camera hardware was obviously not a high priority. That has changed. The photographic capabilities of the iphone have actually proved to be much more important than Apple originally envisaged and with every new iteration of the phone they’ve increased the performance of the camera. Or rather they have […]
So my first nnight over on the emerald isle was spent in a little hotel in Buncrana. It was a friday evening at the beginning of the rugby world championships in New Zealand. I got to my hotel and checked in. Not a great luxurious place but warm, dry and a bed. Headed off to […]

On monday 5th Sept I attended the #MissPixels talk at the Apple store in Regent St. Miss Pixels had contacted me several weeks earlier to let me know she was coming to UK and to ask if we could meet up for a photo walk in London. Unfortunately that never happened but during our discourse […]
National Theatre on Southbank. Taken as the daily pic for my talk at Apple in Covent Garden.
I like B+W shots and am constantly trying out new processes to get the tones and look I am after in an image. My go to app is usually Film Lab then some tweaking in Iris or Filterstorm but of late I’ve also been playing with Nik software’s Snapseed. I kind of like what snapseed […]
I got a message on flickr the other day asking if I was keeping all my iphone shots for my books. The chap hadn’t realised that most of my flickr from last two years is actually all iphone. However, it made me think. I actually don’t put alot of stuff up on flickr. In fact […]
So it turned out to be a pretty great day and evening. I’d like to thank all the staff at the Apple Store in Covent Garden who helped me out on the day. Having your own personal “genius” on hand to edit your presentation and give you tips is pretty cool. I might even invest […]
