I took the portable studio and left it in the car

As you do, I got asked to photograph a friends birthday party, so I thought, take along the studio and set it up because clubs and pubs are bloody awful to shoot in! I arrived and thought, I can’t expect people to come to me I need to go to them! Studio left in the…

Why a photographer should be employed

It’s amazing how much work I get correcting the mistakes for people who hired a “photographer” to record events, it’s also amazing that the people think that the low res jpeg can be turned into a large image without noise… I once had some one send me an image and asked me to “clean up…

Sometime insanity can give you peace of mind!

Dear Stuart “Life has no answers just choices”… it’s an interesting concept, especially when we are “seeking answers”. Well for answers to be answered we need to phrase the question correctly and then, importantly, answer it. God is an existential extension to the human pysche, it doesn’t matter if it exists or not, if you think you…

The 20 Minute George Square Experience

Dropped my son off for a college interview on Tuesday just after lunch time and thought I’d leave him to his emergence into educational manhood and wander down to George Square in Glasgow. I had 20 minutes to eat a sandwich and since I had the camera I thought “what could happen in 20 minutes?”….

Car or Train?

If I compare petrol costs to train ticket costs only, the car is £3 more. There are 8 places I want to stop when the weather improves and the sun is setting on the car journey but if I go via the train I almost want to get off at all the stations in between and make…

Street Photographers Wanted/Needed

I’m currently writing a dissertation on Street Photography as part of my BA Hons Digital Art. I’m showing the art of Street Photography as a more accurate reflection of societal changes through the last 100 years. It’s a comparative study taking in other strands of recording change but the pivotal underpinning is Street Photography. What I need is to create a…

I went left instead of right…

I’m getting out and about every day… my camera is now my dog, I need to take it a walk every day, not everything is amazing that I come back with and some I’m sure I’ll be the only one to like. Here’s yesterdays… Here’s the one I really like and the rest are below…

Self indulging myself

It’s been a hard week for me personally, so I’ve been taking the camera a walk, I don’t have a dog and Karma tells me that it likes to get out from time to time. I plug in the earphones and away I go. I disabled all the galleries in my Facebook Page, created a…
