Goodwood Festival of Speed 2014

By |June 28th, 2014|Cars, Motorbikes, Nikon, Portraits, Uncategorized|0 Comments

It’s been a couple of years since we visited the Festival of Speed, but the wait was worth it.

We stayed the night in a nearby Airbnb and although admittedly the German (self-proclaimed) petrol-heads were a worry for the morning there were no towels so no problem. The pleasant and turquoise haired Mrs […]

Custom Electric Guitar Studio-shoot

By |June 7th, 2014|Nikon, Photographic Equipment, Products|0 Comments

When I was a teenager phone-numbers only had three numbers but electric guitars had actually been invented and they were pretty much my life. However I don’t think I have ever had as many instruments gathered together as I do at the moment.

Yes, as someone mentioned recently, it’s great to combine two passions of […]

Who says the weather never gets in the way? Nope, I haven’t heard that said much either. Well we got there in the end, a split shoot with internal and external shots of the pupils at the impressive Exeter School.

It was great to deal with happy smiley people, seriously, not a single mention of […]

Where’s the fire? Well, sometimes it’s about shifting high volumes of water.

In this instance as part of the efforts to remove the slipping land mass Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service arrived with a specialist skill set; pumping large volumes of water. The task included crew at land and at sea with the […]

Civil Engineering Rail Works Photography

By |March 22nd, 2014|Industry, Nikon, Photographic Equipment, Photography, Technology|0 Comments

This kind of work is of course interesting, every aspect of it. In part it’s why I love getting commissioned to do it.

Trying to explain to the dog-walkers the immensity of the project and why their dog walk remains closed is a challenge. Trying to photograph with safety helmets, safety glasses and gloves […]

Devon is Wet

By |February 5th, 2014|Exeter, Nikon, Topsham|0 Comments

No-one pointed out to me how wet Devon gets before I moved. Yes yes I should have got that Devon’s green fields don’t just happen. The first Autumn we were here the road out of Topsham (past the Bridge) flooded shut, so it’s nothing new.

And over the first few years that I was here […]

A Walk Around London

By |January 12th, 2014|Architecture, Landscapes, London, Nikon, Photographic Equipment, Travel|0 Comments

A couple of days in London and a deliberately different approach, the Leica stayed at home and the back was burdened with Nikon and Manfrotto. I have never been a natural tripod user (stoppit) but the D800e and for that matter the D610 both offer much more if one is used.

I am still not […]
