Within the next couple of weeks, my wife and I will be celebrating our 15th Wedding Anniversary. It’s not that often that we go anywhere without the girls but with the help of RedLetterDays, I’d arranged a little secret treat.
The girls would be enjoying the afternoon with their grandparents while my wife and I headed off to the luxurious Ashdown Park Hotel for some Afternoon Tea. Read More
The Autumn/Winter crossover is possibly the best time to get out with your camera, the slight issue is that the weather is often poor. Rather than sit indoors and dream of the photos you could capture, the memories you could make…wrap up warm and enjoy. Read More

I have said many times that it's more important to get the photo with what you have than not getting it at all. My favourite quote from Chase Jarvis is 'The best camera is the one you have with you'.
I've used many cameras over the years and have no real loyalty to a certain brand, I like any camera that is easy to use, portable and able to get the shot I'm after. Read More
I bet everyone has the same issue when out taking photos on location, or when on holiday...the fact our phones and tablets run out of memory quickly. It's more difficult to transfer stuff using Dropbox or another cloud system so you want a quick and easy solution.
Sandisk has a few products for this very reason.
For the past few week's I've been trying these out and I love the usability of them and the freedom they give me. Read More
Let's kick this off with the conclusion first...this is a remarkable phone. I'm not going to go into the specs of the phone just know it runs on Android and it's Google's flagship model so you know it's going to be good.
I will go over the camera and what I personally think of it. I haven't been paid by Google and I paid for this myself so it's not some product placement post. Read More
For the past few months, I've been giving the Panasonic Lumix GH4 a try. I have a soft spot for Panasonic cameras and they don't disappoint. The thing with their range of Micro Four Thirds cameras is that they do lots of different things well.
The GH4 shoots video in 4K, has 16 megapixels sensor, 49 focus points, ISO 25600 and lots of other goodness to enjoy including a tiltable, twistable 3" screen. Read More

Saal Digital is a name I've seen on social media a few times and when someone tagged me in a post of theirs to say they were looking for people to give their photo books a try I thought I'd reach out to them.
They said they'd be thrilled to give me a code to create my own photo book and give my honest impressions so here they are... Read More
Let me start with a few of the stats about this tripod before we go any further. This is a £55, yes that's the legs and head. Other famous brands couldn't ever get near that price.
With everything in life you get what you pay for, a £250,000 car is generally going to be faster, more luxurious than a £5,000. Take on board the price and not be let down.
Introducing the Calumet 7100 Tripod, a three-way quick release tripod with a three-way pan and tilt head. Read More
