Llandulas Sunset

This is going to be fun. WordPress have changed the familiar desktop editor for this new fangled Gutenberg thingy. Apparently you have to add blocks instead of just writing and adding photographs as you go along. Seems like a lot more work to me. But as I don't have much choice now for blog post...

Gronant Dunes

The Watkins Path

Another day out in Snowdonia, this time on the Watkin Path, considered to be the most brutal of the paths to the summit of Snowdon. But I wouldn't be going that far. The path starts with a  wander through the woods and for photographers there are some good photo opportunities. Moss is growing on everything... Continue Reading →

In The Studio

Last night I was in the studio plating around with lights. The idea was to set up some flash lights with different coloured gels and get the model to walk towards them in a criss-cross path. As she approached a light it would fire. First of all got the model to pose roughly in the... Continue Reading →
