Swanage 9969

From a very brief trip I took this past February – the same one where I trialed a Hasselblad X1D.  This however was shot the next day with my Sony A7r2.  I am looking forward to getting back out to shoot the English coast, but right now it’s too packed with sun-seekers. I’ll need to wait for colder weather to find the deserted seasides that I love.

Bloody Foreland

What a name!  I do love a rocky coast. This is one of the locations on the Light, Land and Sea Donegal workshop this September.

Platinum Palladium Printing

Continuing my interest in past photography processes, I took a Platinum Palladium workhop to learn the process.

I think this might be the start of something very beautiful. Many thanks to Lux Darkroom here in London for the lessons.  If you have the opportunity to work with them, do.  They are a great group.

Painshill Park folly in 2018 Platinum Palladium Print



I have a lot of unshared photos.  Here is an oldie from a trip I took to Macedonia with F-Stop Gear a few years ago.

And for interest’s sake, here is an iPhone photo that shows the reality of the location.

Painshill Park and a New Camera!

I am still occasionally managing to do some landscape work.  This is a folly in a gorgeous park not too far from where I live.  It was great to be out in nature with a camera, which coincidentally is my new Hasselblad X1D!  😀

London Photo Festival 2018

I had a great day out in London today, attending the London Photo Festival.  It is such an all-encompassing event; one could easily go on all of the days and never get bored.  I highly recommend it.

Here are photos from some of my favourite photographers:

Strange Studio Moments

Strange and fantastical moments in the studio… how I spend my rainy weekends now that I am working on an MFA…


Amazing Wet Collodium Workshop

Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a photographer before digital?  Before film?  One of my photography heroes is Julia Margaret Cameron and she worked before both, with wet collodium.  I had the opportunity to experience a little bit of what that was like today.

Death Valley National Parks Art Residency

Maybe some of you are interested in this?  I would be if I were not knee deep in my Masters of Fine Art program.  Later…  🙂
