10th Legion MMA Fighter Composites

I though that it might be a bit of fun to do some MMA composites after my two recent outings. I wanted to achieve something more akin to 'cool fighter portraits' in a bit of an advertorial vein. As the images from the 10th Legion MMA outing in Hull on September 15th were better than [...]

Fury MMA at Proud O2

This weekend I was invited to shoot Fury MMA at Proud O2 in London. Having not shot at or even attended an event like this before I was a little nervous and unsure of how to approach the shoot along with not knowing 'the score' for such a thing. After a bit of waiting around [...]

Crystal Palace Underpass

I took a trip to the underpass last night, its still very securly locked up, however I have no doubt that there is a way in somehow. There's currently a campaign underway locally to see if the location can be used for some sort of community space, gallery or bar. Either fo these would be [...]

I'm lucky enough to have access to my Mum's caravan in The New Forest. Although I've often gone there and take pictures I've not got around to doing a panorama. So here you go. The weather was against my friends and I and the two days of cycling was reduced to one as we got [...]

Dolittle at The Hope and Anchor

I've been a fan of Dolittle for YEARS, possibly the first time I saw Ange play was at Reading Festival somewhere around '91 in his prior incarnation as EAT front man, my memory is a bit fuzzy, but I think that they played twice that year, once on the main stane and as a stand [...]

Crystal Palace Overground Festival With Friends

Tilt Shift Testing at The Shard

You should all know how I love my panoramas by now, well I am thinking about investing in a 17mm tilt-shift, so decided before making a (substantial) dip into Mr Visa's pocket that I should probably try one out. Last weekend I got my hands on a TS-E 17mm F4 lens. There's an excellent explanation [...]

London – South Bank at Night

Another from my Saturday trip out to The South Bank. This is a stitched panorama made up of six or seven images with 3 brackets each. It was taken with my new (second hand) Sigma 12-24. I'm partially happy with the lens, its a bit soft after using the 24-105 L thought, so I have [...]

Hellingley

Another corridor in the now demolished mental asylum. I'm having trouble being creative with my writing at the moment, lots on my mind and lots to do, it seems to be sapping my thought process hence the lack of 'wordy-ness' recently!

Sheffield Abandoned Factory

After searching through the archives I came across this shot - Its a pretty straight forward image and not the most interesting I must admit, however it was nice and easy to produce for a Sunday morning. We'd actually gone to do some graf hunting, looking for a pigs arse of all things, which we [...]
