Earlier this month most of the UK was treated to a late winter snow fall. Nicknamed the 'Beast from the East', the icy winds and thick blanket of snow caused havoc on Britain’s roads. I braved the freezing temperatures for a walk up to Mousehold Heath in Norwich, which looked very picturesque in the late … Continue reading Snow!
I recently had my first bash at some studio based portrait photography, after seeing an advert on my local Camera Club's Facebook page for an afternoon session in a photography studio with a model. As someone who much prefers taking natural photos, and 'street photography' I surprised myself by really enjoying experimenting with the effects … Continue reading Studio Time!
After a chilled out Sturday afternoon driving round North Norfolk, I happened to glance and see a couple of hares in a field. Fortunately I had my camera with me, so I parked up, and after a bit of a walk around the field, I was able to get close enough to get a couple … Continue reading Hares in February
The following photos were taken while walking around Cambridge with a friend - the ice rink in particular was great fun to observe!
On Boxing Day I watched the dinghies and keelboats racing from Waveney & Oulton Broad Yacht Club, and took a few photos. I couldn't resist getting a bit more creative with some of my photos, even using the reflections in the clubhouse windows!

The 45-metre long installation first came to the city in … Continue reading Christmas lights and light painting…
Needing a bit of inspiration, I walked around Oulton Broad's Nicholas Everitt Park at the weekend with an idea of taking a few landscape photos of the autumn leaves and ice. As the sky clouded over, and the light faded, I found myself focusing instead on a group of squirrels that were congregating around a … Continue reading Squirrels!
Earlier this year, I entered Suffolk Owl Sanctuary’s Annual Photo Competition. In 2016, I entered the competition with a photo of a Great Horned Owl named Birkett (below), taken with my Samsung GX-1L camera: Although I didn't win anything, I did receive a lovely email commending me on my photo, which inspired me to have … Continue reading Photo Competition Success
I attended a street photography workshop in Norwich on Saturday, which was lead by Wex Photographic and a Photographer and Sony Ambassador, Robert Pugh. Despite it being a damp and miserable day, with very little lighting, I enjoyed the opportunity to wander around town with a group of other photographers and got a few shots … Continue reading Street Photography in Norwich
