Not everyone loves printing, but I do. In fact, I don’t really feel like it’s one of my images until I have made a print that satisfies me. Realising I hadn’t printed in a while, I thought I’d make the first exploratory copies of some work I have been doing very close to home. Please […]
Just a quick heads up: I have two copies of Visitation left before it goes up to the next price level. You can find details of purchasing prints and print pricing using <— these links.
One of our readers, Callum, asked me about the angle of view of the Sony 28mm f2 FE compared to the 35mm f2.8 Sonnar. As some of you may know, the Sony Zeiss 35mm Sonnar is slightly longer than most 35mm lenses (in the region of 36-36.5mm at a guess). The 28mm f2 FE is […]
When you’re building a photography book collection, it can be difficult to find monographs that contain a good assortment of some of the best work a photographer has produced. Some claim to do so, but fail dismally. Others are priced into the stratosphere. This book, simply titled Harry Callahan very much succeeds in my view.
No Full-Frame for Fujifilm Until the Fujifilm GFX 50S, Fuji stuck with APS-C sized sensors much to the frustration of some. They said they’d not be exploring Full-Frame (FF) and stuck to their word. Instead, their first medium format digital camera will hit the market very soon and FF is still nowhere to be seen. […]
I can feel the chaos abating in my new life in the UK and I’m starting to become more productive in terms of new photographs. Some of you will have seen the beginnings of my new project work in the slate mining areas of North Wales and I am now thinking of where else I […]
There has been a lot of speculation about the direction the Leica M would go in and a few heated debates. The one thing everyone seems to want is for the form factor to return to the likes of the original analogue M cameras. The M8 & M9 were a bit fatter and the M240 […]
There are many reasons why a person might envy Elton John, but they don’t concern me. However, there is now a very good reason for passionate photographers to do so! He has an amazing collection of photographs. I actually meant to say astounding. With a collection of over 7000 vintage prints, which is growing by […]
Photographic print permanence is a topic that is hard to escape from, but why is it considered so important by so many? I wonder if the true reason is much more to do with ourselves and what it means to be human.
Since writing Leica SL: Titan or Titanic, I hadn’t thought much more about this new series of cameras, until now. It isn’t because I think the SL is irrelevant, only because there hasn’t been much by way of SL developments. In fact, the Leica SL is hugely relevant, because it represents a very significant investment for […]
Prints Now Available Over the last five years I have been selling a selection of photographic limited edition prints at exhibition. Life in Afghanistan meant that I was largely unable to make my photographs available outside of these exhibitions, but this has now changed. Since April this year, I have been settling back into a […]
I had been hoping to get back to some of the Welsh slate mining areas and continue shooting, but I have not been able to thus far. My shoulder is still not in the best of shape, but is on the mend at least. I won’t be entering any weightlifting challenges anytime soon, but I can […]
WARNING: Stream of consciousness coming up (that’s code for a rambling, meandering post)! We humans are obsessed with categorising things. This is no less the case when it comes to ourselves. You are either a something (tick one of the available boxes), or a ‘nothing’, when none of the boxes apply. This is even the case […]
Harry Gruyaert is a Magnum Photos photographer (from Belgium), whose name is not particularly well-known. He’s not famous in the way William Eggleston is and his name is much harder to pronounce than Andreas Gursky’s (the latter’s photographs also selling for dramatically more $). Nevertheless, I’ve spent more time looking at Gruyaert’s book than any […]
Ladies and gentlemen, today we are showcasing the work of Aaron C. Greenman. His work could be described as a mixture of street photography and reportage, spanning a broad range of locations and subjects. You can find a wide selection of work on his website, which is linked below. Please note that he has not […]
Following on from my last post here, I can now explain what I’ve been up to and what an experience it has been. A few weeks ago, I realised I was so caught up in other activities that I had not taken nearly enough photographs for myself. I wanted to get away to a place […]
I’ve been gone a while – sorry! I’m back in front of the computer once again, only this time with a very painful shoulder. Had I slipped in the shower, I would have nothing to show for it, but thankfully I slipped over whilst taking photographs. No sooner had I realised that my equipment was […]
