I can recall the early days of car based sat nav systems, back in the 1990′s. Tiny screens built into the DIN sized slots of the then traditional car stereo opening, a rather stern voice with more in common with Stephen Hawking giving the guidance. The novelty of those systems soon wore off once you [...]

Regular readers of the blog will be fully aware that I’m a big fan of digital publishing. Not that I don’t enjoy a good printed magazine. Indeed I still think there’s nothing better than sitting down with a glass of red wine, opening the crisp, new pages and getting that fresh print aroma and you [...]
Here’s a big heads up and a shout out for everyone at The Yorkshire Air Museum. We’re doing quite a lot of photography and other work with them right now and we’ll be able to talk about all that shortly. But yesterday, they sent out the exciting press release that they’ve had to be so [...]
The history of our armed forces is a subject close to my heart. Forget the politics, I just appreciate the sacrifice that ordinary people have made over the years. Last week, I was shooting background plates for a new website project for The Yorkshire Air Museum’s new site, going live in April. In the edit, [...]
I’m still catching up after a really busy October and finally got some time to clear the decks. Best day of the month without a doubt was the Shooting Supercars Workshop at The Yorkshire Air Museum together with Canon UK and The Flash Centre. The crew from Canon travelled from as far as Kent on [...]
A quick heads-up if you’re living in the north of England and love photography and old aircraft. This Saturday, I’ll be at the Yorkshire Air Museum for an evening photo shoot of some of the aircraft. We’ll have with us a mountain of Elinchrom lighting kit from The Flash Centre, plus we’ve grabbed a Canon [...]
It hardly seems like yesterday that I was writing on this blog about the convergence of stills and video photography and what the implications might be for magazines, their publishers and their websites and how the survivors would shape up. Now, up pops this great video by Alexx Henry of a Triathlon athlete shoot for [...]
There’s been a lot of talk about EPaper disposable LCD’s recently and how they might be the saviour of the magazine industry. Some say that being able to enmbed video into a magazine will be revolutionary, others comment that the ‘disposability’ factor and apparent wastefulness in this age is unacceptable. What both sides have yet [...]
I’ve been meaning to kick this one off for more than a year now, but I guess with the birth of my Driving Images car photography website, it’s a good time. Dead Metal will be my first real ‘personal project’ as such. I’m a big believer in personal work, but in the past, personal projects [...]
I’m really pleased to announce that I’m working with Canon UK and The Flash Centre to present Shooting Supercars at The Yorkshire Air Museum on 9th September.
I was having quite a long chat with a prospoective client last week about how their website wasn’t performing and how using blogging and other social media ideas would work well for them. The company spends a lot of time with their clients, they’re a motorsport company, but they’re in the ‘people’ business and they’re [...]
