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.

Reflections

Reflections

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. ‘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

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...

Another Road Trip

Another Road Trip

It's another road trip, two jobs over three days, I don't want to show any of the jobs (can't at the moment) but I would to talk about equipment and the logistics of working away from the office/studio (numbers in brackets denote the pictures). One job was an...

And The Word On The Street Is…

And the word on the street is… sharing, here's some images I created on some downtime whilst on location in London, there's more images uploaded to the portfolio side of the site. Again these were created with a Sony RX100v, and again the architectural detail rears...
