Since living in London, I’ve been trying to make an effort to get to some annual events across the capital. Two big sporting events that I have been enjoying for the past few years have been the London Marathon and The Boat Race. This coming weekend is the 160th boat race between Oxford and Cambridge […]
Blog – Photography
Working professionally as a photographer, I often post about photography related content such as new work, inspirations and industry news. Expect to see a lot of visual posts with large amounts of images.
From the success of the Greenwich Park Squirrel images, I have decided to create a project dedicated to the squirrels and possibly other creatures of London’s Royal Parks (Hyde/Greenwich/St. James’s/Regents/Richmond/Bushy/Green Park, Kensington Gardens and Brompton Cemetery).
I went for a walk through Greenwich park with my camera yesterday, hoping to get some good shots of the London skyline from a new perspective, as I had never been to the park before. The view was pretty stunning. The altitude at the top of the hill gives a fantastic vantage point for clear shots facing towards Canary Wharf and Central London. The weather was pretty crisp for a Winter’s day and there was a definite haziness across all of my photos so I wasn’t massively overwhelmed with the photos I got, so I decided to move on.
In May of last year, I went to Barcelona for a holiday with my girlfriend; it’s taken me all these months to finally get the photos online in my portfolio. Somehow, my time has been fully occupied with other work that I haven’t been able to go through and edit the shots until now. At least now, I have a whole new website that allows me to feature my work much more prominently and probably gives me a bit more exposure for my work.
6 years ago —whilst still at School— I designed a website for an quaint bed and breakfast style hotel located in the village where I grew up. It was awfully designed and extremely basic but did the job well. The time finally came to redesign and rebuild the site from the ground up. All in all, this one brief pretty much sums up all of my creative skills into one.
Continuing with my strive towards more sports photography, I recently went to the Beach Race in my hometown of Weston-super-Mare with an aim to get right in the action with my camera. The Weston Beach race is one of the largest motocross fixtures in the UK and has been running annually since 1983.
On October 6, I was taking photographs of the Royal Parks Half Marathon on behalf of Oxfam. I’d previously worked with Oxfam at the London Marathon earlier in the year covering the after-race reception that included free massages, a meal and a relaxation area for all Oxfam runners. That in itself was a great experience, […]
