Strange Coincidences in Scotland

Greetings from Scotland! This is gonna be a long one… I’d suggest grabbing a coffee or six… but it should be worth the caffeine crash you’ll get later! Adventures in Bokeh and Flare This story begins many, many years ago, but let’s start a couple of weeks back. Those of you who watch The Creation […]

Sleepy San Francisco

Back in September I was in San Francisco for a long weekend, partly to meet up with some friends from the great photography education initiative that is The Arcanum and partly for the final photowalk in Trey Ratcliff’s epic journey across America.

Having a Play

Sometimes we can be too serious in our photography… take me for example. Last week I stood on a rock in the middle of a forest for over an hour. I guess it was determination to get the shot I wanted in camera, rather than create it in post. Looking back though, it was a […]

It was the start of the world’s largest festival of the arts… well, it’s really several festivals but they all sit under one banner and add together. There’s film, theatre, music, dance, opera, hand drawn […]

Racing Against Time

The image above is all about taking chances… Over time I have learned that many of the best images come into being because I take chances…and some of the worst photography regrets occur because of not making an effort. More on that another day. In this particular case I was up north (in Scotland) and […]
