Camera Obscura

The Camera Obscura is an ancient concept of a darkened room with an opening allowing light to pass through.  This light projects the outside world upside down and back to front and in all its glory on the walls inside the camera.

Andrew has been refining his practice of making and documenting camera obscuras and examples can be seen below.

A crowdfunding page has been established to explore funding this project: https://www.gofundme.com/obscura-cityscapes-of-portsmouth

Experimenting with crystal

Funny how even after over 15 years of being a photographer there are methods and techniques I’ve never tried.

Recently I saw a students work where he had experimented with a crystal ball to make creative photographs. So I got my own and tried it out!

Can’t wait to try it at different locations on bright days!

First Wedding Meeting of 2018!

Today was my first wedding meeting of 2018, a great young couple tieing the knot only the week after next.  It brought me to realising that I’ve never actually blogged many of my wedding photographs and so here are a set from last summer between Mark and Rachel.

Been wanting to shoot this location for ages!

Non-Place and Industry

There’s something I’ve always loved about shooting at night. It’s that ‘playground of light’. This, coupled with my love of non-place, deadpan and industrial spaces, comes together to form photographic documents the likes of which many do not consider!
