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. […]
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.
A lot of people ask me – how do I know if my photos are any good? And will I ever get any better? Before I started teaching my workshops, I would have said no, probably not. I honestly wondered whether amateur photographers could get any better. I was carrying around this idea that the […]
Shot at 1/13th @f/4.5 ISO 640 40mm(17-40mm) Canon 5D mkIII Hey folks, Today I want to do something very cool and fun. I am going to dissect how I took an image from both a technical and narrative standpoint. So you see the image above, it’s one my and Di’s favourites, taken in Hackney Wick, […]
This is a photo from my workshop last week. The busyness of a city like Hong Kong gives you so many opportunities to play with long exposures. Good day to you, I hope life is really super good, and that you are happy, nourished, enjoying life in all the many places that you live. Today’s […]
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 […]
“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” Oliver Wendell Holmes Thank you to everyone who replied to my last post on our plans to be location independent. We’ll be travelling now for at least the next year – in part to run workshops in our […]
Good day to you all, I hope life is good for you and you are doing some cool things with your photography. I’m doing well, enjoying this good summer in London and getting ready for a working trip to the south of France next week. Lots of fun. A very quick and short one for […]
Greetings from Istanbul. I am here with my family working on my next book, and continuing to explore this enchanting city. Highly highly recommended. And now for something I was nervous to reveal… Last year CNN asked to publish some photos from my project on the Homeless World Cup. It’s an amazing feeling to have […]
“One’s destination is never a place but a new way of seeing things.” Henry Miller A few evenings ago I left my office in Waterloo to head home to see my rambunctious kids and have dinner with my wife. The evening had an interesting feel to it, a misty, wintry fog hung in the air […]
I was out with one of my dawn workshops a few weeks back teaching and chatting and demonstrating and I found myself alone for a moment; everyone had found something to shoot, so there I was with just my camera and the rising sun in a small park next to a church. I had been […]
I am fascinated by Leake Street, off Lower Marsh in Waterloo. You can stroll through everyday and see some new work or someone in the process of painting over another’s.
I hope you are all getting on well with 2012. Beginnings can be hard but remember 2012 will be 2013 in no time so lets make the most of it. As Steve Jobs said “Soon you will be dead.”
