Give me Passion!

I would like to state here and now that I am about to make some gross generalisations and I make no apologies. I have just recently imploded an image to EPZ my first in a very long time. After 10 years on and off this site I look at it like an old friend. Is it healthy?, is it enjoying life? so I...

Comfortably Numb

Here I am sitting at the computer, its 5pm on a misty Thursday morning, unable to sleep after a day overdoing the caffeine intake. Exactly two weeks have passed after the death of my mother I'm still finding it difficult to come to terms with her death. It was not totally unexpected as she has suffe...

The Beauty Game

Another week and another scandal about how much Photoshop retouching was done to a recent Kim Kardashian photo shoot. Like many starlets before her, going way back to the old Hollywood days, the publicity departments would never dream of releasing a publicity photo without some professional airbrush...

Watch where you point that!

Over the years the period between software upgrades and new camera gear gets smaller and smaller. We are all guilty of looking to this new technology with wide eyes at the prospect of what little wonders these companies are about to offer the creative industry. Magazines and web sites will devour ev...

Also Available in 3D!!!

Photography has for many years been used as part and parcel of the commercial image industry no more so than in specialist areas such as fashion, food and cars but now even these areas are coming under threat. H&M the Swedish retailer is the latest in a long list of clients to look to Photosh...

In a Galaxy far, far away...

With the arrival of the new blue ray box set of Star Wars it got me drifting down memory lane once more. In 1977 Star Wars IV arrived on British shores, or to be more exact, it arrived at my local Odeon Cinema in Glasgow. I like many other science fiction fans had watched and read about the sensatio...

A week from hell!

It was that time again school portraits. I know it's not every photographers idea of fun but generally speaking I have a great time with kids ranging from 11 years old to 18 years old and then you can throw in a few teachers to the melting pot and you end of with a good weeks worth of work. I origin...

Big boys don't cry.

There is know denying that sight, sound and smell can have a big emotional impact on many people, for at times, very personal reasons. For me the still image has the biggest impact. Even in times when everything seems to be geared towards motion I am still drawn to the single photograph. We are ofte...

Inspiration

At sometime or another we are all inspired by someone or something in our profession. Without generalising I would say artists seem to be heaver influenced by either other artists or by a particular movement or style. Photographers on the other hand seem to drift along until the realisation that the...

It's all a state of mind

There is a lot of things one can do to help improve your art and photography and know doubt many of you, like me, have attempted a great many of the ideas that are out there. Well, there is one thing that I have recently achieved where so many other ideas failed. It did not involve purchasing any ne...

Holiday time ahhh!

We all set of with high expectations that life is going to that bit better for s week or so, people will be nicer and your photography skills will increase by a factor of ten. Well,...

Bob Carlos Clarke, remembered.

I have recently been reviewing many, many photography magazines. There is some fine work, from some outstanding photographers out there both UK and abroad. But, I still feel there is a big absence within these journals. No Bob Carlos Clarke images, no cutting advice, no edge. I admit I still feel hi...

Photography lite

Its officially summer, and like most people, we pack up and head out for a small break. But as with many stock photographers the camera will never be that far from my side. On many occasions you don't want to lug about your big expense SLR but you still want to be prepared for that moment, so th...

The memories stop here.

With the final weeks of the school terms upon us and the holidays looming, It got me thinking how many parents will be able to photograph there kids. Award ceremonies, sports days, everything that for many, sums up their final days at either primary or high school, captured for prosperity. Somet...
