It’s six thirty am and I am doing what has become a habit this past few months. Wake up at 6 am, plus or minus 5 minutes. Make a large thermal mug of black coffee, with honey. Take a walk. The rural location I’m with right now is different each day. Sometimes, it’s dull, grey, […]
Photography and video is evolving at an amazing pace. Add in the platforms now available to display still images and motion content and we have some amazing ways to tell stories as never before.

It’s March 28th 2017, northern France. The Citroen rental car is giving it’s best possible performance, but we don’t seem to be catching them up.

Sitting in a Tapas bar in Sitges in September, the thud of explosions outside made me put down the ice cold Estrella and take a look. There’s a well known phrase, invented by Chase Jarvis, that the Best Camera is the one you have in your hand when you need to shoot something. Tonight, it […]
A rather insightful article on the Mastering Photography website highlighted the impact of images with converging lines in photography. The article by Richard Gray was principally covering what makes people ‘like’ Instagram images and one of the things that stood out was that images depicting converging lines were amongst the most popular.
