Being a Professional Photographer

Posted on September 8, 2018 by Admin under TRAVEL

I never had formal training in photography although I’ve certainly nothing against it, for many it is a great way to start. Instead I learnt the business of telling a story with a camera from many years being a UK network television cameraman, mostly in studios on entertainment and drama for international audiences. That, and […]

Cold Fish and Hot Frocks in Brixton Market

Posted on August 25, 2018 by Admin under TRAVEL

Brixton is for me one of those places I’ve only been to a couple of times but through many more back in my teenage years on my way to Brighton riding my James Captain 200 cc motorbike. At the southern end of the tube’s Victoria Line, the market is just around the corner from the […]

The Postal Museum in London

Posted on August 15, 2018 by Admin under HISTORY, TRAVEL

Around the age of ten years old, my father got me interested in stamp collecting, something he had done for many years. I loved looking at the tiny bits of paper from all over the world as I stuck them into my album, trying to imagine what the countries were really like. Later on, this […]

Travel Photo Tips – Light

Posted on July 23, 2018 by Admin under TRAVEL

Light plays such a crucial role in all photography but with travel most photo buyers want ‘blue sky’ shots although in recent years atmosphere shots have become more acceptable. This often means waiting for either the sun to come out behind cloud or later in the day at sunset for it to slowly sink behind […]

What a fantastic week it was in London for the celebrations around the Royal Air Force and its centenary. In Horse Guards Parade, best known for the annual Trooping the Colour, an impressive display of aircraft from the First World War up to the latest acquisition for the RAF, the F 35 Lightning. For me, […]

Japan in London

Posted on June 25, 2018 by Admin under ART, TRAVEL

Within the space of seven days I attended four different Japan events in London, something I’ve never done before and will probably never happen again. I was invited to the London press launch of The Ryokan Collection, five star accommodations in Japan. Ryokans are traditional Japanese inns in which you step into their culture and […]

Travel Photo Tips

Posted on March 26, 2018 by Admin under TRAVEL

There are very few rules but shooting when the sun is at its highest is usually a bad idea. Around the middle of the day it can be directly overhead which results in unpleasant shadows, especially with people. Up to three hours after sunrise and three hours before sunset will yield better pictures. The light […]

Greasy Spoon Cafes London

Posted on February 27, 2018 by Admin under TRAVEL

Okay, I’ll come clean straight away – I like greasy spoon cafes and all they stand for; good cheap food quickly served with no fuss, none of that three small bits artfully arranged somewhere on a huge plate stuff. While the term greasy spoon used to denote somewhere cheap and downmarket, it is now more […]

A Week in The Forest

Posted on February 7, 2018 by Admin under TRAVEL

The New Forest is just a lot of trees, right? Yes, and then again no. It is trees but so much more than I thought while on a trip there last week. Just 90 minutes from London’s Waterloo, Brockenhurst was a good place to start. A bus took us the lovely Bartley Lodge Hotel near […]
