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.
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. […]

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 […]
Incredible food…. Italy is known for its delicious food. I know this to be true because I have travelled all over the country and eaten food that is embedded in my ‘best food memory bank’. (All of my family has this memory bank, including my kids; we love food.) Fifteen years ago I had some […]
“Ask yourself what is really important. Have the wisdom and the courage to build your life around your answer.” Lee Jampolsky Today I want to share some of my thoughts as well as some cool quotes I’ve collected that capture why Havana and the country of Cuba is one of my favourite places to photograph. […]
Sometimes photography can bring you in touch with the worlds and life beyond our mere small planet. As someone already fascinated about space and the possible life in the galaxies far far away, I love Jaxson Pohlman photography. Pohlman has become well known with his Astrophotography, and creating beautiful images of star speckled skies and […]
“No such thing as spare time, no such thing as free time, no such thing as down time. All you got is lifetime. Go.” Henry Rollins I was out walking and shooting this morning. I got up around 5.30am and after drinking coffee I headed straight out. It was cold and dark as I closed […]
One thing I never fail to see, at least once, on one of my workshops is someone holding their camera upside down. What I didn’t realise was that 90% of the people I was correcting were women. I may be a really good observer but sometimes I am as blind as those mice.
