“London goes beyond any boundary or convention. It contains every wish or word ever spoken, every action or gesture ever made, every harsh or noble statement ever expressed. It is illimitable. It is Infinite London.” Peter Ackroyd, London I spent almost twenty years shooting London, in particular at the dawn hours for my two books […]

Hello everyone, Today I’m sharing some interesting ideas that I think will help you leap into a good photo practice if you are stuck in a rut or struggling to get inspired. 1. Photography should always bring you joy A few days ago, we were having lunch with some friends and one of them mentioned […]
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 […]

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 […]
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.
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 […]
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.
Hey everyone, Hope this finds you very well. Today I have swapped the wintery life of London for the heat and vibrancy of Mexico City. I am a little tired of course from the long flight, but there is nothing like beating jet lag with the excitement of being in an incredible country like Mexico. […]

Hello Photo family Diana and I will be live on Facebook today talking about Positioning and how it is a critical practice in photography. The session will only be about 20 minutes so don’t be late!
In this short video I explore the possibility that photographers don’t get the results they want. This is due to fixating on their subject. It’s wonderful to be in awe of your surrounding, but photography is a process of creation not just something beautiful.
I lived in London for almost two decades. It’s a city I love, even though it lacks the beautiful weather of where I grew up in California. And when you grow up in the sun, it’s hard to live with out it. So really it’s testament to what an incredible city London is that I […]
Di and I have lived in Andalusia for over a year now and it has completely and totally captured our imaginations. Little did we know that when we set off on our travels almost two years ago we would end up finding a base in southern Spain, and falling in love with the wild and […]
