AN OLD FRIEND. A Parting Of The Ways

Sadly the time has come for me to say goodbye to an old and faithful friend, my Mamiya C220 Professional TLR. The 6×6 format was my entry into the world of medium format from 35mm. It also represented a step change in my photo thinking. Working in 36 mm it was all a bit of a buzz, a tendency to dart about a bit too much, a little too over […]

LIVERPOOL. Waiting On Central Station

I had a journey to make and part of that journey took my into Liverpool, not far from where I live. I was using the train to get from A to B and after I arrived at Liverpool’s Lime Street station I took the short walk through the streets to the central station.

It’s not a perfect image but it was a combination of elements that drew my eye and made me press the shutter release.  The casual stance of the man plus the combination of the corduroy jacket, black narrow legged jeans and the […]

IN THE STUDIO. Boots & Whiskey

To quote some ELO lyrics ‘Rain is falling’ so on these occasions I like to work on my studio techniques, being more of a landscape photographer I’m guilty of neglecting this discipline. I have a small computer table which I have fitted out as a small studio set that I can dress in a variety of ways, I have fixed an old projector screen to the back of it and this forms […]
