As I was looking through photos today, I realized that I never shared any from this trip. Namibia is AMAZING. If you ever get the chance – go.
What is your next dream destination?

Fascinating!! If you are interested in alternative processes, this is definitely worth a few minutes read.
“Bradley was fascinated by the fact that the analog photographic process, widely thought of as genuine and authentic, showed a twisted version of reality.”
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.

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.

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.

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.

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! 😀

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:
