Shooting Purple 35mm film

Here are the last frames of my lomochrome purple 35mm film; it’s great fun to use and constantly provides unpredictable results, if you come across a pack, 35mm or 120mm, definitely give it a go!

Photographing the South Downs with Lomochrome Purple film

This week I set out to photograph the beautiful South Downs with my last roll of Lomochrome purple film. The film works best in bright, sunny situations so I was often seen at the top of a hill staring at the clouds hoping they would move.. If you want to hear more about the film…

Shooting medium format with the Diana F+

At the weekend I visited the beautiful East Sussex town of Lewes. I shot medium format images using the Diana F+. The camera is just a bit of fun to use, I wouldn’t recommend it for project work, but its a good way to experiment with film photography. It has a shutter speed of 1/60th…

Street Photography: When the Subject Spots You…

There are many different approaches you can take when it comes to street photography. From the shoving-a-flash in your face and not giving a damn technique (Bruce Gilden) to going completely unoticed like Vivian Maier.

Being a street photographer in England in the winter provides many challenges including being so cold you can’t feel your fingers to press the shutter speed. But my main issue is the light,…

Photography A-Z

For my latest project I am undertaking different assignments found in the book ‘The Photographers Playbook‘. For this one set by Susan Meiselas you have to go out and capture the alphabet using trees, shadows and anything else you can find. I had great fun with this and overall it took me 1.5 hours, which…

New Years Day

New years eve can be a weird one, either the best night of your life or a complete anti-climax. So me and my cousin hatched a plan to go out and photograph Brighton after the clock struck 12. I love photographing at night, even if my hands get so cold I can’t feel them. I…

Photographing Winter Solstice

Being back in the UK there was only one way I wanted to celebrate the shortest day of the year: at the Burning of the Clocks in Brighton. An annual parade complete with paper clocks and samba bands resulting in a bonfire on the beach and fireworks. Thankfully it wasn’t too chilly and my hands…

Back in the UK & Photographing Brighton Pier

When I was first told about reverse culture shock I naively thought I would be immune because I ‘ve traveled so much before.   But here I am back in the UK missing using a squat toilet and eating rice 3 times a day. Maybe it’s because for the first time I was based in…
