The idea of travelling on the London Underground with children might send shivers through some people it is actually a fun way for them to travel. It might be one of the only times they get to travel this way and there are a few things you can do to make it a little more enjoyable.Read More
One of my favourite things to do during spring and summer is just to walk around London and take photos, capturing things I hadn't seen before or just trying a different angle of a building.
This got me thinking about a photography project that you can join in with and it might even keep the children entertained and you'll get to see different parts of London.Read More
One day of Spring and then rain the next, that seems to have been the theme for the past week. This was one of those dry days when we had blue skies and there was lush green grass.
Now if we could have a nice spell of a few weeks like this we'd all be happy.Read More
On Friday I was in Brighton early morning and gave me the chance to take a photo of the West Pier. I wanted to try a longer exposure to smooth out the water and see what it would look like.
This was taken using a Nikon D610, tripod, 10 stop ND filter and a 20-second exposure.
I quite like the way it's come out.Read More
Being a snap happy individual, there’s no doubt that you have your trusty DSLR on your back wherever you go. You might even pack a spare lens or two, some filters, your tripod and a backup battery in your Lowepro backpack. Any opportunity that arises for a great shot or two and you're there.

This wasn't meant to be the photo this week, I planned on something and that all went out the window when I damaged ligaments in my ankle on Monday. This has meant that walking has been a struggle so hiking for a beautiful landscape hasn't happened.
Instead, I set up a tripod, camera and tulip to at least take a photo I was happy with.Read More
This is a very quick tip which can easily transform your photo from meh to awesome. This tutorial uses the Radial Blur filter which is a really underused tool.
Here is the photo I started with.Read More
The A7iii is the latest full-frame mirrorless camera from Sony and it's their 'entry-level' one. It's a 24.2mp all singing all dancing, 690+ focus points, touch-screen, 4K recording camera.
Priced at £2,000 for a professional camera it's not too expensive, don't get me wrong it's expensive but not compared to D4 iv or D850.Read More
I took this photo in the middle of the week when it seemed like spring was ready to make an appearance. Green grass, colour in the morning sky and slightly improved weather.
Since then we've had rain, wind and over the weekend more snow. It wasn't as much as last time but it gave everything a light dusting.Read More
A break from the usual landscape photos today.
Instead a beautiful single flower for Mother's Day. It's been a while since I took a floral photo, this was shot using a Nikon D610.
I'm also hoping the vibrant colour welcomes in spring and says goodbye to winter.Read More
