There's a saying that goes "the best camera is the one you have with you" and over the last couple of years I've found it to ring true. With advances in lens designs and processor speeds it's now...
It's easy to get entrenched in old ideals and stick to the tried and tested but history has shown us time and time again that progress is inevitable. This couldn't be truer with regard to the tec...
Ever heard the expression, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do”? Well during my visit to Rome I managed to completely smash the lens on my trusty Fujifilm camera. Instead of getting upset I decide...
As you may have noticed from my Rome and Paris posts I love a late night wander. Like a werewolf a city can transform under moonlight and provide the backdrop for an unplanned adventure. Amsterda...
Back in August I was invited by Richard Harris to take part in a small photowalk around London. A small group of us met up at Waterloo and our journey took us through numerous boroughs and side s...
Every time I visit Italy my train passes Bologna and I just can't help but jump out, even for a couple of hours. Bologna boasts a one of a kind atmosphere that's hard to replicate, even with othe...

Onto the second part of our photography walk (PART 1) where the tall, looming skyscrapers dominate the skyline. The glassy exteriors give the buildings a very cold and distant feel yet serve as a...
Lets be honest, the sheer act of traveling is a little bit of a hassle. I can never sit by the pool and just put my feet up for a few days but the unpredictable flight schedules, hotels and taxi ...
Italy is a country that's always full of surprises so when Mike Knowles suggested a 5 day road trip it was an offer I couldn't refuse. We spent our days visiting seaside villages around Cinque Te...
After several months of solitude and introspection I've come to the realisation that nature doesn't make mistakes. Have you ever seen a badly designed tree or a misshapen cloud? Everything is unf...
There's a famous saying in Eastern Europe that goes "the only thing that’s free is cheese in a mousetrap". Although I understand the sentiment I would have to disagree as some of my most treasure...
In my early photography days I played it safe, taking pictures of buildings and landscapes and simply honing my skills. Over the last few months however I picked up a Canon 7D and a Sigma lens to...
When asked to sum up the Buddha’s teachings up in one phrase a zen teacher Suzuki Roshi simply said, “Everything changes.”. We must remember this in our daily lives and understand that clinging o...
