I’ve finally parted with my beloved X-E1 after three years and many thousands of images. In its place I’m now the proud owner of an X-T10. Wow what an upgrade in performance this is! I’ll do a full write up soon and why I chose the X-T10 over an X-Pro 2 or X-T1. In the meantime […]

From the Archive #6

I recently came across the work of Masashi Wakui, a Japanese photographer who produces some wonderful stylised street photography of scenes around Tokyo. In particular I really love his nighttime shots which I feel do a great job of capturing the essence of the city. It gave me the inspiration to go back through my […]

Happy Halloween!

Apologies for the lack of posts lately, I’ve been busy with work and not had that many opportunities to go out with the camera. As Halloween is almost upon us I thought I’d post this recent shot which I think looks rather spooky. It’s an abandoned cottage near where I grew up that’s been empty […]

This is the third in a new series where I share older images that I’m quite proud of but which are unlikely to otherwise appear here. Darwin’s Seat I love this image of Darwin’s statue in the Natural History Museum in London. It’s a beautiful building, full of intricate details and flourishes. The natural light streaming in […]

This is the first in a new series where I share older images that I’m quite proud of but which are unlikely to otherwise appear here. A day at the beach I captured this shot of the beach at Aberystwyth on an unusually warm late March day, back in 2012. I lived in this town […]
