Norfolk skies

Norfolk has big skies. Because the county is so flat, you get a 180 degree view of the sky when in the open countryside and there’s lots of that here too. After we moved here, I was keen to see what was visible in the sky at night as we are in a rural village […]

Personal work – shot on film in the great British summer

I have recently spent a lot of time shooting personal work as I believe it’s the best way to stay fresh and focused with photography. What I find in doing this is that I tend to shoot static objects and landscapes much more than I do as a wedding and portrait photographer, where the emphasis […]

Miami, Little Havana and St. Augustine – January 2013

Morning all! I wanted to blog some travel images that are a bit different from my usual content – I and my husband spent a couple of weeks in the US in January (getting away by the skin of our teeth on the same day that snow brought the UK’s airports to a standstill). We […]

Film Is Not Dead – some images by Jonathan Canlas

It’s not often you’ll catch the species known as the Lesser-Spotted-Photographer in front of a camera having their photos taken. It’s just not in their nature.

I’ve attended a variety of workshops in the past, just […]

Sorrento, Italy and a few days off!

I was lucky to have a few days free a week or so ago and after the nasty winter in the UK, Brian and I decided to hop over to the Amalfi coast in Italy for a few days of warm sunshine and glorious landscapes – and it didn’t disappoint! Travelling around we visited Positano, […]

Holiday snaps

I’m currently on a well-deserved holiday in the sun but of course as a dedicated photographer, I couldn’t very well leave home without my trusty Canon G11 camera! I’m driving hubby mad – not so much with the piccie-taking but the post-processing and blogging – “We’re on holiday, for heaven’s sake, can’t you leave that […]
