Ready for Theakstons Crime 2014?

Long weekend starts tomorrow! Not a holiday, but the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, in Harrogate. I'm the official photographer for the event and it is always a great time, lots of excellent writers on stage as well as mingling with their readers/fans. I don't think there is another event quite like this! They'll [...]

CLUSTER³ UNCLUTTERED at Trinity Buoy Wharf

Abandoned Suitcases

I’ve just read this article on Abandoned Suitcases that were left at the Willard Asylum for the Chronic Insane. A powerful story, but also a fantastic opportunity to actually be there and photograph the suitcases.   Read the article here

AP Forum Comp: November – High ISO

Brief: Make the most of the sensitivity of your camera and turn that ISO up to at least 1600. Don’t worry about the noise, in fact make the most of its texturizing effect, and shoot away. It doesn’t have to be dark remember. I’ve been waiting for this round of the competition as I love [...]
