Ask most English folks what they think of halloween, they will probably tell you it is some American bullsh*t, or something along those lines. I agree, slightly, but not completely. In times before the Roman Invasion, celts would mark this time as year as a time when the dead would walk among ...

my photography website

It has been a long time since i had a photography website, and its been a while since i even designed one. I was not going to bother but i have several gigs of webspace, as well as a web address i never really used, and lets be honest, its always nice to show off images in a well presented site. ...

m39 to fuji x mount

It is crazy to think that in all those years of owning a DSLR, i never once bought any decent glass for it, not once! All i had was the basic kit lens and the 100.230 or whatever zoom lens, hey, i only have myself to blame! Since owning this Fuji, the only X series without the x-trans sensor, the...

get out more...

A few days ago i posted this... ...to a facebook community page. It was taken locally obviously, in fact less than 1 mile from my house, in my youth we would take our bikes there, 3 of us had Kawasaki KMX 125's, so this place was great fun for the KMX'x, though sadly this is where my kmx ...

Progress with speedlighting

Yesterday i had an amazing 3 hour shoot at a relatively new location for me, though it is yet another derelict raf base, but this one is in Norfolk, a bit further afield than my usual haunt, but well worth the 45 minute drive to get there! My previous shoot there was a quickie, no speedlights, ju...


So i have been playing with my legacy lens, my Helios 44-2 f/2 58mm, attached to my fuji, for a few weeks now, and i have used it almost daily, most times when out walking the dog through the local woods, or when browing for shrooms at bigger woods a bit further away. I think it was love at first...


Little known fact, sometimes when I am dreaming, I know I am dreaming. For so long now I have been trying to become lucid in my dreams, and I am getting there, though more often than not, the excitment of it all causes me to wake up. To get this far has taken almost 2 years of meditation, determi...

rewriting my ebook

I published a free ebook this year called The Perfect Selfie. At first I was rather pleased with it, but after a while it began to niggle me. Basically the word Selfie really p****d me off, I mean, selfie? Really? I dont do selfies, well, yes i do, i have done, a selfie is surely a snapshot wi...

cheap triggers

Ooooooh they make me scream with rage and sheer frustration at their uselessness, their inability to work further than 3 feet, their constant misfiring!!! So, kinda trying out some strobist things right now, got two awesome manual speedlights, a 60x60 softbox and 80x80 octobox, both take 30 seco...

some new lenses

The only lens i had for my new fuji x-a2 wa the standard kit lens, the 16-50mm etc, which for a kit lens, quality is not that bad. Never liked the depth of field on it though, the bokeh was not nearly enough in the end, sooooo, i delved into some adapted lens topics on forums around the internet ...

new puppy woes

I arrived home from work an hour ago and have just got back from walking the dog. She had her injections wednesday, and weighed at the vets, now 7.5kg in weight, she was only 2kg when we got her. I have struggled with her, specially this week. I almost gave up on her; i felt i could not cope ...

Twinkle Twinkle...

This little bundle of fluff is Twinkle Starr She is a border collie, from a litter of 6. I am sure you are all going "awww" right now but let me assure you, she is demonic! Pretty sure she will calm down though, i just need to be more firm with her. She adores footballs and plan...

Photography eBook published

For the past few months i have been working on a little project to enlighten the duck face generation on how to take self portraits properly, and now I have finished writing it all. Spread out over 34 pages with close to 8000 words, this clearly isn't something I knocked together over a weekend, ...

from hopeless to hopeful

ABout 18 months ago i began work for an agency and was posted to some weird, skandanavian goods warehouse, and at first i totally hated it there, but then i was not in a great place myself. BUt i got my head down, went to work, made a few friends, which in turn made me friendlier towards others, ...

Goodbye Poppy.

On rememberance day 1999 I went with my parents to an animal rescue centre, and this little long legged sandy coloured dog looked at us and i swear she smiled, and that was it, we bought her home and named her Poppy. I was in my mid twenties at the time, and 2 weeks later i passed my driving test...
