  1. Trees

    05 Oct 2016

    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 8 second exposure…


  2. More Bitburg and pictorialism

    04 Oct 2016

    So, two weeks later I returned to Bitburg airport This time as an accredited photographer and to give a client five  12” x 16” darkroom prints.There were 5 other photographers there, armed with digital…seems I was the only one with a film camera.A medium format film camera at that!As the maximum shutter…


  3. Experimentation

    18 Jun 2016

    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 with…


  4. Is it summer yet?

    17 Jun 2016

    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 be…


  5. Hasselblads, Fujis and Bronicas…

    12 Jun 2016

    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 it…


  6. Late Spring

    13 May 2016

    Been a while yet again, hard to find the time to write a post to be quite honest Mainly photos, less blabbing.First a few of the client portraits through March, April and the first week of May shot on digital…some portraits, some for model portfolios, CV shots, couples, a wedding… Some client shots…


  7. Spring

    30 Mar 2016

    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…


  8. Fuji FP 100C and other stuff…

    04 Mar 2016

    It’s been a bad week for those of us who shoot and love pack film, on our medium format cameras, with Fuji’s announcement of the discontinuation of Fuji FP100C.Ok, they’re a business and being in business means making a profit or not bothering to be in business!I have heard that…


  9. More January ll

    04 Feb 2016

    Here’s the next set of images shot in January…as I said in my last post, there’s been a bit of a problem with flash syncing the hasselblad, all seems to be a bit hit and miss at the moment.Sometimes the images are perfect and other times, horribly underexposed. Maybe a…


  10. More January

    13 Jan 2016

    Some more film work of Johanna, who first came to us as a client 3 years ago Unusually for me, I shot four rolls of film, three with the Fuji and one with the Hasselblad EL/MThe only photos I wasn’t happy with were with the ones with the Hassy.. First set: Johanna…


  11. Christmas and stuff…

    27 Dec 2015

    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 nicely.I’ve actually had…


  12. November

    04 Dec 2015

    Friday 13 November 2015 Yet another dark, dark day for humanity. People murdered, cold blooded, unreasoning, brutal. Horrific. I don’t really know what else to say, it’s just so heartbreaking that our species can behave in this way. Been a pretty busy month, although not quite as hectic as October……


  13. Location fashion and portraits

    02 Jul 2015

    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 been…


  14. Weather

    03 May 2015

    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…


  15. Reciprocity!

    04 Mar 2015

    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…


  16. Fomapan

    26 Feb 2015

    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…

  18. Lenny's Legs!

    20 Feb 2015

    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…


  19. Sheona, Emilie, Marine

    11 Feb 2015

    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…


  20. Film

    28 Oct 2014

    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…
