Now I don’t know about you, but when it comes to product naming, S and R are the sexiest letters you can add to the backend of a product. Canon seem to have taken a leaf out of Jaguars book, relaunching the company brand by creating desirable monsters such as the XKR and F-Type R. For some reason, putting an S or an R after the model name just makes it more appealing, like its quicker or better at everything that the non-R version was. Anyone remember when the boring old D3 became [...]
Sometimes, the difference between an amazing image and one that is simply nice, is the fact that the image looks natural. Images that seem to capture an unaware subject are almost always more powerful than images that are staged and contrived. This is because we like to feel part of a moment, that we have seen something that lasted a mere second and that you had to be there at that time to see it as its displayed. Staged images can work, but they lack a certain honesty that can make a [...]
Karolina hails from the darkest, deepest regions of the Ukraine, now residing in sunny Bournemouth. She still holds on to the twang of her mother tongue, rolling her R’s and swapping her V’s for W’s. She is a beautiful girl, naturally so, but it hadn’t quite dawned upon her yet.

So today I decided to meet up with a photographer friend named Matt and take some images of the raw coastline of Portland Bill. I say friend, Id never actually met him before, though before you start to think that I meet strange men on random parts of British coastland, let me explain. Matt is a young photographer who has been published in the Mail, the Telegraph and the Mirror. He is a very good photographer indeed and a few weeks ago, we started talking about photography of Dorset. In [...]
Well, I guess Ive just had enough. Every day or so, Im alerted to the fact that yet another load of my images have been stolen by some pathetic person who wants to pass them off as their own work. It really is abhorrent that these people honestly have no qualms in simply downloading your work, rebranding it and then uploading it as their own. I cannot believe what gives someone the right to think they can simply do this, and Im even more angry at how difficult places like Flickr and [...]
Swanage is a small coastal town in the heart of Dorset. It is probably most famous for its beautiful, Victorian pier that I went to photograph this morning. This little jetty that I stumbled across is beautiful in its simplicity, really giving the viewer a sense of walking out in to a never-ending abyss.
A single image, using an ND 10-stop filter, gives a real sense of being motionless. There was a beautiful sunrise to the right of frame, which lit this little Jetty beautifully [...]
