To Being Courageous
  • To Being Courageous

  • I love this month, it means a whole bunch of things to me. Primarily it's my wonderful mum's birthday and she truly is marvellous. She embodies everything that I aspire to be, most of all my mum is courageous. What is true courage? To feel the fear and do it anyway, whatever it may be. Courage[...]
My Inspiration
  • My Inspiration

  • Out of all the questions I am asked, the most frequent one is what inspires me. Life. Life is most inspirational. Having previously existed through a drought of inspiration, the pain of losing that spark and the dumbing down of senses but coming out from that heavy burden has created a thirst for se[...]
Summer Adventure
  • Summer Adventure

  • Each summer break we go to visit my lovely parents and spend a week adventuring and exploring, this summer was a huge adventure! My mother is my inspiration, she taught me to be free and to love freely, most importantly to taught me to create. We spent a lot of time in her writing room, ov[...]
  • iPhone

  • I have found more and more that I am leaving my D3 behind whenever we go on family adventures. On reflection carrying around a large DSLR is not only a weight I'd rather not have but also I'd much rather be in the thick of the enjoyment and not fiddling with settings whilst becoming a voyeur behind [...]

Texture is the look and feel of a surface and in photography this is captured through pattern, colour and depth. Texture is everywhere in simple and complex forms, it w[...]

  • I cannot believe it is almost Christmas, we are just about ready. We have the most amazing selection of stollen, with thanks to our friends in Germany, let the wind down commence! In the throws of festivity, I found myself thinking about what I would like to achieve next year which lead me to thi[...]
  • Inspiration

  • Opening my eyes, I know it, before I even get out of bed..... my inspiration is taking a break. How do I know? Everything feels normal, some days this is a relief but not today. Having a day free from inspiration is relaxing, I am able to focus without the overwhelming stimulation. I can't enjoy it [...]
All photographers can shoot portraits..... can't they?
Why Photography?
  • Why Photography?

  • From a very early age, I loved to create. Academically, art was not my strong point. I could never stay within the constraints of the lesson. My mind would wander off and create, further than my teacher wished to go. My earliest memory of being artful was making a swan using rolled up bits of tissu[...]
