Hi, just a quick blog as I have not got much free time (I am finishing off year two at Nottingham Trent University.) I will be done by early June so that is good. Anyway, while the whole world seems to be in lockdown because of this awful coronavirus, covid-19 thing, people are on their computers a lot more while working from home or internet … Continue reading Traffic.
Just a few images I shot of the Nottingham Wildcats game v the London Lions in the #WBBL at the weekend. Nottingham were impressive especially in the 3rd quarter where they broke free with a 10 point gap eventually winning the game 65-47 and Jasmine Joyner from the Wildcats making the WBBL all star 5 for the week.

While relaxing at home I thought I would write a quick post about what I’ve been doing lately and plans for the new year. Well, as you know I have graduated from Solihull and moved onto Nottingham Trent University to carry on with my photography education to degree level. At this university there are lots of opportunities to act as a photographer in the real … Continue reading Happy New Year!
So, after two whirlwind years of putting my photography education to the test I have graduated with an HNC in Photography at Distinction level. The next chapter for me has already started because I have enrolled (with the advice of my excellent teacher at Solihull College and University Centre) onto the BA (hons) Photography course at Nottingham Trent University. It was a tough choice … Continue reading Graduation!…
While I was in London looking at the National Portrait Gallery I took a walk down to Hamiltons Gallery in Mayfair as it was exhibiting work from Sir Don McCullin, CBE. The exhibition was called Proximity and was a brilliant display of vintage gelatine silver prints from McCullin over a period of decades of work. As someone who is interested in photojournalism and press photography … Continue reading FMP:Don McCullin exhibition at Hamiltons Gallery.

This very inspiring building is jam packed full of images and sculptures to look at and at the time I went there was an exhibition on by Martin Parr. Parr, born in 1952 is a British documentary photographer, photojournalist and a phonebook … Continue reading FMP: visit to National Portrait Gallery
So; as the work at university continues for my final major project, I say university and so I should. I have called the place where I go college before but I’m in the university section as I am studying a higher education course so, enough of that. I visited the Midlands Arts Centre in Birmingham as part of my photographic research on portraits and to … Continue reading FMP: Visit to Midlands Arts Centre.
Hi, I am sitting here writing about the stress I am going through trying to get my websites to work properly. Maybe I should get a professional to sort out my domain names and records on my DNS servers and then the search engine optomization (SEO) thrown in too but, all this could be very expensive and it is not just the once that I … Continue reading Internet struggles
As someone who is going to be starting my own business as a freelance photographer at some point, I realise that although my main objective is to become a sports photographer, I also need to have some sort of back up plan for work in the photography industry. Hey, sports are not always played in the week 9-5 and I do not want to be … Continue reading Professional Food Photography.
I was tasked at college with shooting 1 roll of black and white film or shooting in colour film the theme or influence of a chosen photographer. The first photographer that sprung into my mind was Vivian Maier, who was an American street photographer who died in 2009. Maier’s work was mainly shots of people but she also took shots of architecture in and around … Continue reading London Trip/Street Photography.
