Lately, I’ve been making a huge effort to print more of my photos, not just to sell but to hang in the office and around our home.

Have you ever thought about how quiet and lonely landscape photography is?
When you think of photography you think of the social side of it, interacting with people but that’s not true for all types of photography. Portrait photography is about getting the model to pose as you want, wedding photographers have to organise the families into the group photos, street photography you often talk to the people you take photos of. Even pet photographers have the owners and pets to deal with, what do you have when taking landscape photos?Read More
Isn’t photography incredible? You get to take those moving, sometimes chaotic moments in time and distill into a single shot. You capture the emotions, the movement, the colour. And then the image sites on your memory card for months, until you eventually either wipe it or upload it to the cloud. This digital age offers so many amazing opportunities for photography, but it can also take away some of the magic. Remember the old days of developing your images and carefully displaying the best? Here are three reasons to recapture that spirit by printing your photos.Read More
Every so often photography goes through a phrase of different things that are popular. Some last a while and others fade as quickly as they came.
One of these is the use of a lensball, they have been around for the best part of a year and if used correctly that can create some effective photos. The norm is for the photographer…or assistant to hold the globe in front of the subject and snap the photo.Read More
The ability to use filters is a real skill and not something that you can pick up quickly…but using them especially a 10 stop filter can massively change your photography and open up a whole new World of creative.Read More

I must admit I did take a photo like that when I first got it and it received a lot of likes on Instagram but I wanted to step away from that.Read More
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.

Today we're talking memory cards...more specifically dual memory cards.
If you've recently bought yourself a new high-end camera you would have found it's more often than not got dual card slots.
With the professional bodies from Nikon, Canon or Sony you can pick which card type you'd prefer such as XQD, SD or Compact Flash. Normally you can buy a version that has two slots the same which is perfect but for some reason, Nikon thought it would be a good idea to have one XQD slot and one SD slot in the new D850 meaning you've got to purchase two different types of cards.Read More
