The other night i stood in a room watching my favourite group, Sigur Ros perform live just for me at the Wolverhampton Civic. There were a few others there i admit, about 700. But really Sigur Ros were only there to play for me :) I have been a fan of this group for so long, and six months ...

My new patch

I was always envious of those who found their patch. The kind of patch where all manner of wildlife is observed and captured in pixels, or c41, or e6 if your posh. I have never had my own patch really. True, there are places i know and frequent often, but these require me getting into my car and ...

January 2012

January 2013 was certainly a good month photography wise, all that snow and ice was stunning for a time, and made even more stunning by bringing us clear blue skies now and then. It is no secret that i disliked January, its a dark, cold, empty sort of month, where no one wants to do anything or ...

The Golden Pheasant

Today i spent a few magical moments filming a Golden Pheasant in Wolferton, West Norfolk. It was very late in the day to be going out with the camera, but after the snow has thawed i decided it would be nice to get out, and i headed to Wolferton, one of my local spots. Anyway, there i was driv...

You get what you pay for

Sometimes a bargain is too good to resist, like a pair of bootcut jeans for a tenner, or a half price discount on something else entirely. Or a ten pound slave flashgun... What could go wrong? Well it all seemed fine until last night, the thing stopped working completely, the red light is on b...

DIY mini softbox

Cant afford a lightbox, need one for my little slave flash, but their all a bit small for the job and the bigger ones cost silly money! So, time to get all Blue Peter i think. One box of Mini Rolls, devoured one by one until box is empty. Cut a hole in one side of the box for flash to fit ...

So much for streamlining....

The whole idea of buying the Leica was to rid myself of 'tograffeee stuff. So far this month i have bought several filters including a 4 point star burst, i kid you not! A Hama Compact Pro Traveller Tripod with a lovely little ball head. A Godox cf-18 slave flashgun. A Spudz microfibre cloth in ...

Reflecting on 2012

Considering the year began on a knife edge, i didnt know how it would work out, it actually worked out alright in the end. I didnt want to be here last year, not epz, just here, living the way i was living back then, all secrets, guilt and arguments. It was all to much for me. But i got through i...

Respect Due

About a month ago i emailed a few camera shops who were selling the Leica V-Lux 3 at teh discounted price of 399, the camera has now been superseded by the V-Lux 4. I made the cheeky request to be able to pay for it in two instalments before the christmas day arrives. The first two who got back ...

Photo Locations

There is a little corner of ePz called Photo Locations, oddly enough you can find locations to photograph there. The locations do not appear there by magic, each one has been lovingly contributed by members of this photographic community. Its alright, but what the hell happened to Norfolk? Does n...

Dads are awkward people to but presents for at christmas time, they usually end up getting something mundane like socks, or a tankard, or slippers. Boring. So i put myself in his shoes, no easy task, im a size 5 and he is a size 13, and came up with a fab present! Like me, he has an interest i...

Coming Soon

Well, thats now 100 paid deposit on my next camera, the Leica V-Lux 3. Why this model? Surely there are others which are cheaper with similar specs? Yes! I have wanted a new camera for months, absolute months. Typically i was going to go down the traditional SLR route, but then i had a change...
