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.
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 don’t like to have complicated goals in my life. But I do like to have a vision for my life that I follow each year.
I think there is this weird idea floating around that creativity is a young person’s game, particularly certain genres of creativity (photography and music for sure). That somehow you are at your peak creatively in your twenties and thirties, and then it’s downhill from then on. I think that’s insane. Some of us can find […]
Ciao Amici! Today I want to share some cool articles I’ve written, along with things I’ve read/seen/listened to that have inspired me this week. Hopefully there are some ideas in here that are inspiring for you. I shared one of the posts we wrote for Digital Photography School all about shooting on manual. It sparked a […]
It’s a misty, damp day here in southern Spain. I’ve been out on the beach with my kids combing for interesting things. My daughter in particular loves finding things with me – we are always looking for the most interesting stones possible. My son loves to drift off – walking and running and playing. It’s […]
I like who I am when I’m being creative, that’s the basic fact. I love taking photos, just like I love having a long walk through the hills near me in Spain. I have to remember that these things bring me joy. And who doesn’t want a life of maximum joy? So I am going […]
Victoria’s Peak is the must shoot place for any photographer visiting Hong Kong, actually, anyone must visit!
Hello, Today I wanted to have a little fun and make this suggestion – your camera is nothing without you. It’s an inert machine that requires your vision, your inspiration, your excitement and energy to create interesting photos. So to illustrate this today I want to send you some photos I took in the last […]
Good day to you all, Today is one of those days that I often really struggle with in London. It’s grey, the light is flat, there is some of that very sprinkly rain that doesn’t totally warrant the whole rain gear outfit but is none the less an inconvenience. Di went for a walk down […]
This week I have two things for you: an idea (a possibility) and some of my photos from the past few days. It’s hopefully a little light mind-and-eye refreshment, with a tinge of inspiration for you on this weekday-day. “Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself […]
“I cannot endure to waste anything so precious as autumnal sunshine by staying in the house.” Nathaniel Hawthorne My son once said to me – “One day you’re going to love autumn as much as I do.” And I think, after many years, that time has arrived. Loving an autumn in London didn’t come naturally to […]
This week a short post to say that Diana and I have got something super incredible to give you (and it’s totally free….gratis, nada pesos). We’ve been working on this for the past six months. I’m now going to drop the English facade of mild self deprecation that I’ve had to develop over the past fifteen […]
The morning after I sent out a blog post earlier this month about reviewing your work I woke up in a cold sweat. Something was deeply, deeply wrong…. I crept downstairs and turned on my computer. In a few seconds (my laptop opens at lightening fast speed, something I am very proud of) I realised […]
Hello Folks! Two good things to report this week. Firstly, my next London at Dawn workshop is June 18th and 19th. It’s going to be a small group wandering the dawn and early morning London streets creating amazing images. It’ll be a huge dose of information and inspiration! (The workshops have been huge fun and […]
the light on the book reflected off a mirror from the light streaming through nebulous curtains from a setting sun…it only lasted twenty seconds.
