Blog

According to the Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge, the ancient Chinese encyclopædia, all animals can be described as belonging to one of the following 14 categories:

  • Those that belong to the emperor
  • Embalmed ones
  • Those that are trained
  • Suckling pigs
  • Mermaids (or Sirens)
  • Fabulous ones
  • Stray dogs
  • Those that are included in this classification
  • Those that tremble as if they were mad
  • Innumerable ones
  • Those drawn with a very fine camel hair brush
  • Et cetera
  • Those that have just broken the flower vase
  • Those that, at a distance, resemble flies

Fortunately, my categorisation of blog posts is equally as logical and elaborate. So to limit this list of posts to a single category, please hover your mouse over the word “blog” at the right-hand side of the menu above and wait for the drop-down menu with different categories to appear.

Whitby by night

A pictoresque ruin of an old abbey. Water. Hillsides. Sunset and sunrise. What more could any photographer wish for? I had it all in abundance on this trip to Whitby a few months ago, and I am pleased with the photographic results.

Flooded Ouse

A picture of the flooded river Ouse in North Yorkshire reminded me of one of the conclusions from the press photographer 2012 exhibition: Pictures of natural disasters have more impact if there is a human context.

Lions boxing club

Lions boxing club. Six boxers, one kick boxer, a great make-up artist, and two totties. Is that sexist? Probably. But it fits the sterotype 😉 Oh, and ten photographers, 25 light stands, 30 flash guns plus and unknown number of light modifiers, bags, iPads, triggers...

What do you do with your pictures?

No, seriously, it’s not a trick question. What do you do with your pictures? A brief sotry about putting some shelves up on the wall, but as that wouldn’t really fit into a photo blog, it has been turned it into a blog post about the rotating photo exhibition at my Gallery Staircase. Does that not sound posh?

100 Megapixel London sunset panorama

The London skyline at sunset is too breathtaking and wide to capture in a single photograph. So I stitched 13 together for a 100 megapixel wide panorama of the city. Now I just need to find a 100″ frame and sufficient wall space…

Long distance fireworks

Every New Year's Eve there's a beautiful fireworks from the London Eye. And every year there's are hundred of thousands of people travelling into the city to view it (around 250,000 this year). Getting a good place with a decent view requires arriving hours in...

London from above, part 1

During my first evening tour in The London Eye, I got a series of “nice but no cigar” pictures of London’s skyline seen from above. This post analyses exposure and records a number of lessons learnt for a future re-visit to this magnificient view of the City.
