Bristol Fog pictures fail!

October 11, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
A fair few years ago I took these photos- You can purchase them both HERE Well this morning I noticed it was foggy in Hanham and thought it may be worth a shot at getting some more pictures of Avon Gorge in the fog. Me and Stan jumped in the car at half six in the morning and he fell asleep within 2 mins! The traffic was a bit of a mare goin...

September 25, 2016  •  1 Comment
Tribe of Frog celebrated their 16th Birthday at Lakota this weekend by opening up 6 rooms of awesomeness. This is a usual gig for me and I always enjoy covering it. The place always looks amazing as the crew put so much effort into the venue. It usually takes them a week to set it all up. I had a bit of trouble as soon as I got in there due to hu...

Stanley takes some pictures with a Canon G12

September 23, 2016  •  11 Comments
Stan has learned how to use a camera and to shout out cheese as he presses the shutter. He has a few of my old crappy point and shoot film cameras in his toy box to play with, but today I gave him my Canon G12. To be honest it's a pile of shit and it doesn't get used at all. It was probably a tip top camera back in the day but by today's standards...

British Army Cribs: The Challenger II Main Battle Tank

September 19, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
After thinking of this idea a while back and not having the ways and means to carry it out I found myself in the perfect situation to get it done. I was half way to Germany as part of a Combat Camera Team covering EX VENERABLE GAUNTLET when I started talking to Sgt Kendall and Capt Kendall (no relation) about it. As it was the 100th anniversary...

My Mum has recently moved out of Bristol into a little village called Lydney near Gloucester. As they were having a clear out of all their stuff she came across a few of my old cuddly toys with a few photo albums and other bits and bobs. She bought it all round and we had a dig through it all. Looking through one of the albums I came across this...

Using my own custom Adobe Lightroom CC presets

July 27, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
This post will be a small insight into my editing process using Adobe Lightroom. I like a lot on contrast in my images and I achieve this by using these presets that I have created. I use Adobe Lightroom CC to edit all my images. The user interface is great and I know my way around it as I have used it for a number of years now. After selecting,...

Nikon D5 and 50mm f1.4 review. Looking for Pike and jumping in puddles

June 27, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
So I got issued the brand new Nikon D5 for work the other day. Along with a big bag of goodies that included the Nikon 50mm f1.4. I used the D5 on a work job a few days after getting it and figuring out how to set it all up. I knew that if I could get it to act the same as my D4 I would be happy. I went through all the settings and sorted it out....
