  1. Almost 2 years…

    Almost two years since my last blog post.So much has happened since then… my Mum passed away, I had a heart attack and we moved to the South of France.It’s been an ‘interesting’ time.We now live in a small village between Ales and Nîmes, called Boucoiran.  It’s a beautiful place,…


  2. Early Autumn…

    So, here we are again. Mid way through September and it’s just pretty unpleasant.The world’s weather seems to be going a bit strange and quite a lot of the world’s populous are following on!The rise of the (ultra) right wing is scary and racism, intolerance and neo-Fascism appears to be…


  3. 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…


  4. Trees

    Obsession. Seems like it’s becoming that way.Light filtering through leaves, branches, towering trunks, bark,. Trees. The planet’s oxygenators.I love them and hope that some of my photography can do these amazing organisms justice.This set below shot on Fuji Acros with a Bronica ETRS 645All of these vary from 1 to…


  5. 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…


  6. Experimentation

    I’ve been messing around with some different developers and film stocks…well, started this testing anyway!First one is Rodinal (Adox Adonal) with Ilford HP5+On one of my early morning walks around Metz, I shot a roll of HP5 at box speed and then stand developed it in Adonal for 80 mins…


  7. 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…


  8. Spring

    Apparently it is! It’s been a bit chilly up until the beginning of this week though.A few things to share on the work front.I am still only shooting film for personal work and for some clients (sadly still quite rarely for the latter).Everyone still wants immediacy.Here are a few landscape…


  9. Cold

    Yep. Winter. Unpleasant.Not much to report this month so far, just work and some more work and one non-paying client…that’s another story and something that affects all small businesses at one time or another. Just the way it is.First up, some shots of Ines, modelling coats by Chattawak and 3322…


  10. UK

    Off to the UK tomorrow for a week. Sadly, not a holiday!Professional model client (Sara) this morning for some “polaroids” for her agency. Nice young lady Hasselblad 500C travelling to UK with me along with my trusty Rolleicord V.Was tempted to take the GX 680, but it’s a bit hefty…


  11. 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…


  12. Finding a different angle

    When most of us wander around with a camera, we can be quite singular where we look and what we photograph.Our eyes face forward, anywhere between 1.5 and 2m off the ground (plus or minus!). Our field of view can sometimes be a bit narrow and limited: standing up, taking…


  13. Weather

    We were going to shoot on location yesterday, but due to inclement weather had to shoot in the studio instead.We will do the location shoot tomorrow afternoon, providing the weather is ok.The studio shoot went very well, with the return of resident stylist, Harriet llama, after a long absence due…


  14. 35mm

    Been a while since I’ve shot any 35mm film. It took me around a month to use the roll of FP4+ that’d been in my Nikkormat EL.If you shoot medium format and 35mm, like me), you’ll always (more than likely) be disappointed with the size of the negative- it’s tiny…


  15. 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…


  16. Reciprocity!

    I bought a set of 40mm extension rails for the Fuji GX680 Gave them a test today with a roll of Kodak Portra and some veg from the kitchen! I have also got a set of 80mm extension rails coming soon, along with a set of extended bellows. The standard…


  17. Fomapan

    I’ve just taken delivery of 15 rolls of Fomapan 100 from Fotoimpex in Germany An excellent emporium for all analog shooters. Darkroom supplies, film, the lot! In fact all they sell is analog based. Good to see a purely analog shop in our digital age. I shot a couple of…

  19. 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…


  20. 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…
