  1. New year

    Fairly rubbish end of year…I took on a take pics of Santa with kids contract…it was hell; long hours, small pay etc.Never again!As a result, I’ve not managed to do much personal work and have a full week of client shoots this week.I did get out a couple of times…


  2. Marathon

    Challenged myself again this year to capture some of Metz marathon on medium format.It’s fun with a manual focus Hasselblad and runners passing at 12-13mph.Missed a couple of shots, but quite pleased with the results. Might try it next year with the Fuji GX680 I’ve also used some Fuji Pro…


  3. Bitburg, Autumn…

    Sorry…It’s been some time since I’d written any sort of blog post. I tend to use my Instagram account for day to day photos. All the work on my Instagram account is analogue photography. Film is quite popular again amongst younger photographers, some genuine, some just hipsters who want…


  4. Is it summer yet?

    Apparenly it’s summer, nearly…although it does appear to be raining rather more then I would have hoped and is not quite warm enough either.Apart from that, Britain is close to voting in a referendum regarding staying or leaving the EU. I’m concerned that GB will leave and feel it would…


  5. Hasselblads, Fujis and Bronicas…

    All fabulous MF cameras to shoot film.My Hassy is a 500C with a standard screen and requires plenty of light for focusing, well at least for my poor old eyes! I also have an EL/M body, sadly it has a problem and I can, currently, not mount a lens on…


  6. Christmas and stuff…

    Merry Christmas!So, it’s out of the way for another year…the season of over-eating and over-spending. Not that I dislike Christmas, but I find it a tad excessive. Nice to see happy people though. It’s been a relatively busy-ish month again. Not in the same league as October, but ticking along…


  7. Metz Marathon

    Challenging to photograph sports with a medium format camera…handheld.I was surprised to get any sort of result as it’s not something I’ve tried before. I only shot one roll of film, 8/12 is not so bad.The first three home were Kenyan athletes (there’s a surprise!). The winner came in in…


  8. This month

    Has been busy.Hopital Schuman awards ceremony which I shot on both digital (colour) and film (Hasselblad 500C // Kodak Tri-X) Some of the client portraits, a couple on film. Then some personal portrait/ series work with Solene and Lucie, all shot on film with the Hasselblad 500C Some general snaps…


  9. Location fashion and portraits

    Slowly but surely replacing a lot of my digital work with film shots.A couple of series on the go, one for publication and one that is personal workIt takes time to do this, but then shooting film takes time.Patience!I’ve been using the Fuji GX680, which as anyone who has ever…


  10. Recent work

    A portrait shoot for Helene with her beautiful (and totally disarming) daughter Sasha, in the studio.Digital, Nikon D700 I’ve also been shooting (yet) more film, both 35mm and 6x6 medium format whilst wandering around Metz.A few from the Jardin Botanique and a few from Canal de Jouy and environs.Films used:…


  11. Portraits

    A couple of recent portrait shoots. Mainly digital, but a couple of pictures on film using the Rolleicord V.Helene was photographed in the studio on digital and Julien shot on location in  one of the forts that surround Metz (Mont St Quentin, Plappeville) using film and digital. The first two…


  12. Ossuary and Les Eparges

    I took a good friend, who has been visiting us, from the UK, to The Ossuary at Douaumont (Verdun). A memorial to the soldiers who died during the 300 day Battle of Verdun. 230 000 were killed out of a total 700 000 casualties. Beggars belief.Underneath the main building are…


  13. Lenny's Legs!

    We had a visit from one of our stagiare from 2014 this week Managed to photograph her fabulous legs on film (not that the rest of her isn’t beautiful too though!), during her visit. It was lovely to see her again and hear how she is doing on her 3…


  14. Sheona, Emilie, Marine

    I do keep meaning to do my blog more often, but things tend to get in the way! Here’s a catch up from the last couple of weeks… The tilt/ shift capabilities of the Fuji GX680 for portraiture: although not as flexible as a large format camera, the GX680 does…


  15. UK trip

    Had a short trip back to the UK this week; not for photography, but I did manage to use a roll of Tri-X Exposed at 200 (pulled a stop) and developed in Perceptol, which I think is a little bit beyond it’s use by date. Quite pleased with the results…


  16. Film

    Thanks to my assistant, Damien, I started shooting film again about 6 months ago. It’s costing me a small fortune but worth every penny (Euro?).As I can’t keep posting all my film work in my portfolio, I thought I’d start my blog again so that I have somewhere to show…
