Anyone whose been around the EPZ forums will know that I'm a grumpy old git and that I don't exactly get excited by much in the world that I would term 'middle of the road' whether it be photography, Elton John (or McCartney) or the horrendous Daily Mail. So I tend to have a good rant from time to t...

Disturbing Image of Young Girl

Well at least the title should bring some blog traffic. Last Saturday I did a photo shoot with a 23 year old female model who approached me with the concepts for the shoot. One of the shots was my last upload (no clicks please) entitled Magic Lantern. In this photograph you, hopefully, see a fair...

Recently (well over the last few months anyway) here in EPZ land there seems to be an outbreak of people photographing pub signs.

Yesterday my new tripod turned up. A slightly bitter experience (I hate spending money!) as I lost my last one at a wedding I did a month or two back. Anyway in the bottom of the box was a free copy of the January edition of a UK camera magazine. I won't say which one for fear of offending any sensi...

It's a cracking lens Grommit

More and more often I read something in the forums along the lines of 'it's a cracking lens'. Presumably spouted because the poster owns or has just bought the said lens and feels that he (usually a he) must justify his purchase. Well 9 times out of 10 the 'cracking lens' is just the usual consum...

As some of you are aware my last blog and previous forum posting caused a bit of a stir here in EPZ land so for a change I thought I'd post something helpful and uncontroversial. If like me you have collected together a whole collection of helpful Photoshop tutorials and snippets how the hell do ...

I used to like Ephotozine, a good place to meet fellow enthusiasts and get some good critique and helpful advice. Unfortunately (it seems TO ME - please note that this is my opinion) it has become the photographic equivalent of the Daily Mail. i.e. just an extension of middle class, white suburbia. ...

Well you can.Celebrity picture agency “Big Pictures” has added a mobile phone service to their MrPaparazzi.com website. This not only enables content to be downloaded to a mobile, but allows mobile pictures to be uploaded for immediate sale. The agency hopes to encourage anyone with a cameraphone wh...
