Pete's Blog

Pete

Photography and music are my two passions. I edited photography magazines for around 20 years and launched the UK's first digital imaging magazine. I founded ePHOTOzine and was owner / publisher until 2013. The photos in my portfolio are ones I like from shoots I do in any spare time I have.

  • Photo365 - 314 - Rivelin Valley

    Will Cheung had today off and asked if I wanted to go taking photos. So I booked the day off too and suggested we went over to Riverlin Valley as I knew the leaves would be fresh on the ground and the river has some interesting areas. As a child I...

  • Photo365 - 313 - Yes

    Will Cheung emailed this morning to say he'd been to see Yes last night, and that they were playing Sheffield. I looked them up and realised the gig was tonight. So I quickly ordered a ticket and managed to get centre position in the Circle at the Sh...

  • Photo365 - 312 - I want to be an astronaut...

    ...or a stupid idea to see what happens inside a washing machine with a fisheye lens. Good fun trying A to get in, B to operate the camera phone, C to get the light in the right place and D to find the right angle. I quite like this one.

  • Photo365 - 311 - the delay

    I was subjected to a one hour delay on my visit to the hospital this evening for a routine check up. I'd hoped to record the delay message on the board in the background as well as the figure, but sadly the capabilities of the iPhone's exposure syste...

  • Photo365 - 310 - Almost a candid

    I went to the Whitby Goth Festival today. I decided to travel light with the Olympus Pen E-P2 and used its 40-150mm zoom. The intention was to take candids, but as usual as soon as you point the camera at anyone and they spot you they switch into pos...

    Went to Lincoln Tokyo last night for what I thought was going to be a Katy B gig with her on stage at 10:30. It was a club night...banging DJ so the sound was great but I was amongst hundreds of young revellers and felt slightly out of place. At 12am...

  • Photo365 - 307 - honesty pod

    This honesty seed pod is looking a little worse for wear and I'm surprised it's not split and scattered its seeds yet. Photographed in summer they are a lush green - backlighting still works now and creates an interesting glowing effect. Taken wi...
