Runners-Up

Having been a lifelong supporter of my hometown club BHAFC yesterday was a dream come true. 20 years ago the club nearly went extinct and now their on the way to the premier league after finishing 2nd in the Championship. I went to my first match (away to Watford!) aged 5 and got my first season ticket when I was 6 so it was great to celebrate not only the teams success but the all the ups and downs over the years. Below are some of my favourite photographs I took during the day.

Photographing on the Streets (and beach) of Brighton

I really enjoyed testing the Sony a7RII by ‘shooting from the hip‘. So  I took the camera on a day trip to Brighton to photograph the eclectic mix of people who make up the seaside city.

The camera once again performed incredibly well and it allows you to customise controls which comes in really handy when using manual mode doing street photography. The camera itself is mirror-less making it much smaller and compact compared to similar DSLR camera such as the 5D series.

I’m heading to Iceland next week so look out for a brand new travel diary, film and hundreds (most likely thousands) of photographs!

Capturing Canterbury

One of my aims this year is to see as much of the UK as possible. I’m aiming to explore somewhere new every month. First up was Canterbury, Kent. I chose Canterbury as a lot of my friends who live in Kent spend a lot of time here so I decided to see what all the fuss was about..

Despite being a freezing winter day the city was buzzing with shoppers and a few tourists. The walled city houses a beautiful cathedral and a couple of riverside walks. It has an eclectic mix of  shops and some tasty (and some not so) restaurants and cafes. I would definitely recommend a day trip if you visit Kent (aptly known as the garden of England).
