Slow Down in the City That Never Sleeps

On my trip to New York a couple of weeks ago I took along my wooden pinhole camera to grab a few pictures. This is really back-to-basics photography. No digital preview, not even a viewfinder to see what you are shooting. Analogue film, over 2 second exposures (sometimes up to 2 minutes) and no idea […]

35mm film cameras are back in fashion – but who needs a camera?

A quick round up and a promise…

2016 was a bit of a whirlwind. I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything for nearly a year, that is truly shocking! So the dreaded New Year’s resolution has to be to pull my finger about¬†and start blogging a bit more. Rather than go through each month I thought I’d just pick out a few […]

This summer, however, I have been lucky that, not only has the Tour of Britain route passed really close, but I have also had two clients closely involved in sporting events. National Paralympic Day Firstly Nissan are sponsoring the Road to Rio for both […]

Everybody’s doing it so why can’t I? A London Marathon Story

Sorry Cranberries! My London Marathon odyssey.¬† A lot of meticulous planning went into my first marathon. From training plans, alcohol free months, strict(ish) diets down to what and at which time I would have my pre-London breakfast. The one thing I had neglected though, was how I was going to get there. I assumed (I […]
