That damn gear!

Here I go again. Talking about gear! – well actually I just wanted to let you guys know that I’ve done some changes to the way I use Instagram. Over the course of the last couple of years, I’ve gained quite an Instagram following. Why,...

Don’t f**king die!

The latest issue of the KAGE collective monthly publication is up today. A little late, and a little lean. We all have a lot of stuff going on with our lives at the moment, so it’s not exactly a walk in the park getting these...

Hamburg with the X-E3

Minolta X Fujifilm

It was almost like a revelation. Like something that I really didn’t think could ever be possible. I first got a whiff of what was coming on a facebook forum committed to all things Fujifilm GFX. There were a lot of first movers from Hong...

Summer Solstice

My fellow photography brethren over at the KAGE Collective did a publication last year. It was about documenting a particular day cross-worldly. They chose the summer and winter solstices. To celebrate my joining of the collective, I decided I would have a go at it myself. These...

Delibrate candour

I seem to be on a blogging spree these past couple of weeks. I really don’t know why, but mainly I think it’s because I’m in a good place. A happy place. It has been brought to my attention quite often that people like to...
