Journal

Welcome to my journal. A collection of projects (personal and professional), thoughts and observations. To be honest, it’s just an excuse to showcase films, behind the scenes work, to talk and share ideas. Hope you enjoy it.

Back to the future

Back to the future

As promised in the previous journal upload, I've had the opportunity to re-familiarise myself to a way of working that I thought I'd never return to! When digital first came onto the scene, I thought it would be a tool for the press and sport, where news and events...

Northern Rock Magpies Ad

Northern Rock Magpies Ad

With all this changing-the-website malarkey, I had the opportunity to look back through the digital archives so I could reformat some Journal uploads. For those that are following, remember these went back 10 years! What then came of this was an idea to upload images...

Looking Back

Looking Back

For those of you that are keeping in touch, you will have noticed I have a new website, which I’m really, really pleased with. As we all know, being online and staying connected is now more important than ever. With all the work that’s gone in to the new site, I...

Saltburn Pier

Saltburn Pier

Saltburn Pier. A trip to the seaside usually means fish and chips. Not this time. This was an in between job visits, this isn’t the first time I’ve done this. The last time involved ruining a pair of shoes! Nikon D800e with PCE 45mm.

SOTM 2019 Review

It’s the 2019 Shot of the Month (SOTM) Review, ooohh! And the results are in, four portraits (sort of) four buildings, three landscapes and one interior. If you want to compare stats from previous years you’ll have to look at the previous January journal uploads (I’d...

Lost in Glencoe

Lost in Glencoe

Lost in Glencoe. ‘How?’, I hear you ask. Well, it went something like this… On a recent jolly to Scotland, I had a bright idea to visit the usual photo hotspots in Glencoe – not wishing to create images of them, just wanting a look (I would have taken a few shots if I...

Tomorrow’s World

Tomorrow’s World

It’s been a few months in the making, but now it’s finished. Tomorrow’s World is a short film that tries to answer the question, ‘Can community spirit survive a modern, high-tech world?’ In the age of Facebook, Instagram and www., the world is apparently at our...

Seaham Seascape

Seaham Seascape

In-between all this traveling about, I've still managed to fit in a Seaham seascape, with a bit of BTS/gear stuff thrown in for good measure! Here's the Instagram BTS-some might find the Instagram image more appealing, but hey! I like jazz and heavy metal!! And here's...
