Ideas & Inspiration
One thing I haven’t written about before is abstract photography. And you may have seen it is a genre of photography I really enjoy – but it isn’t something I think about as separate from my other images. In fact I don’t consider myself a genre-specific photographer. For me, sticking to specific genres is so […]
Photographer Ernst Haas taught me that anything could be a subject, and that it is only our curiosity and awareness that limits us in photography.
6 ideas from the master photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson that will help improve your photos and inspire your creativity.
Hey friends What a strange year this has been, right? Yet curiously this has been a year in which I have probably taken the greatest leaps in my photography for some time. I’ve been pushed into being more creative, more expressive and more imaginative with less resources that I have for a long time. It’s […]

Hey friends, Hope today is excellent for you! Every few months we write an article for Digital Photography School and this months is a cracker! The article is inspired by the creative genius that was Van Gogh. 7 Things Van Gogh Can Teach Us About Photography He really inspires me, not just with the art […]
I recently created a membership site for people who want to learn my artist-led approach to photography. It’s been a freakin awesome experience! We have so much fun learning together, sharing photos, giving and getting feedback, doing live classes – all backed up with my library of recorded courses and classes which are…well why should […]

Hey folks, How are you? I hope life is good, and you and yours are safe and well. Last week I had the pleasure of doing a live critique of the submissions from our latest photo challenge. We themed the challenge around my Masterclass on How to Tell Stories with your Images. (And if you didn’t […]
Hey friends, How are you? Have you photographed an awesome subject – then felt disappointed that your images don’t capture the brilliance of what you saw? Your subject gets lost in the background, the subject doesn’t pop, the image falls flat in someway. Frustrating right?! Well you might be getting trapped in the problem of […]
“How lovely yellow is! It stands for the sun.” Vincent Van Gogh Hello friends, How are you? I hope life is good and you are happy and well wherever you are. Today I want to dive into a lesson all about colour. I have already done articles on the colours purple and blue and one […]

These are articles that will help you expand your perception of photography, help you awaken your inner artist and give you techniques and skills so you can […]
We are moving away from the temporary, surface activities that are fun for a while but bring us nothing really deeply meaningful.
When we are taking photos we are actually making an effort to be here in this world. To have experiences that mean more to us than the meaningless things that are on offer elsewhere.
Hey folks, How are you doing right now? I hope things are good wherever you are. This is Diana today, hello! The more we are in lockdown the more Anthony and I are asking ourselves, what are we learning from this experience? What can we do with this time to help us live and create […]
I look at many people’s photographs and I’ve noticed that how people take photos is in direct correlation to how they live their day to day lives. This may not sound like a startlingly profound fact but, put simply: your personality can create the biggest barrier to achieving interesting and unique photographs. It’s not your […]
Would you like to watch me process your images LIVE?
Would you like to see how I would go about working on YOUR photos?
I approach processing how I compose an image – with the spirit and soul of an ARTIST.
Every image is unique. I work on bringing out the inherent qualities of each of my photos, playing with the image and experimenting with different approaches.
I love processing – it is such an exciting part of bringing images to life.
I want to help you not just learn new skills and techniques for processing – but the confidence to explore, experiment and PLAY!
This is an unprecedented time in our history. The COVID-19 pandemic is having an massive impact on our health and wellbeing, the essential services that we rely on, the global economy and on small businesses that we use. We want you to know that we will continue to work during this time to support you in […]
Hey folks, How are you? How is life where you are? What a strange time we are living in. It feels, even here in our peaceful little Spanish village by the sea, that the world has changed so dramatically. There is so much you can’t do right now. And you are not just confined physically […]
Close-Focus photo challenge:
Since we’re all focusing on a bit of distancing in our lives right now, I thought I would propose a challenge that reflects this change in our lives.
But unlike social distancing, this is going to be close-focus distancing.
I’ve taught this technique many times in my workshops for those people who have wanted to do a macro image.
Today many of us in the world are in the flux of the feeling of uncertainty and fear. Justified or unjustified fear, to me that is not the point.
