New Forest Wild Ponies

By on 31 August, 2013 in Photography

The New Forest Wild Ponies are a fantastic attraction in the United Kingdom. The New Forest is magical, and one of my favourite places in the world. From the moment I cross those cattle grids, and I see the New Forest Wild Ponies, I relax. It was a last minute decision to go there with my wife and daughters. We put Nero our Labrador puppy in a kennel as he can’t handle the long walks yet, booked a nice remote hotel, and had a wonderful time. I hope you enjoy the photos.     The New Forest Wild Ponies Photographs Panasonic 35-100mm SLR Magic 12mm SLR Magic 12mm SLR Magic 12mm SLR Magic 12mm SLR Magic 12mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Olympus 17mm   Photography Credits All photography regarding the New Forest Wild Ponies was done by myself using the following...

Whipsnade Wild Animal Park Street Photography

By on 11 August, 2013 in Photography

Street at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park is the nearest to my home where I can satisfy my favourite of all photography styles. I really enjoy street photography and getting up-close-and-personal. It is even better when there is interaction when taking the photo and one of this set definitely captures that moment. The little Olympus PEN E-P5 with 17mm lens is close to perfect for this style in my opinion. It is unintrusive  and doesn’t scare anyone away, in fact it gets people talking.     Whipsnade Wild Animal Park Anyway, here is a small set from Whipsnade Wild Animal Park. Whipsnade Wild Animal Park is part of the Zoological Society of London and is a great place right on top of the eastern part of the Chilterns in Bedfordshire, United Kingdom.

By on 12 July, 2013 in News, Reviews

New review for the Olympus PEN E-P5! yes it is not my review, as I am still waiting for the delivery of my camera. However it is good to see a new review of the Olympus PEN E-P5 camera. I first heard about this PEN E-P5 back in May 2013, and thought it looked really nice. Now having handled one in a shop, I can’t wait until mine arrives. Olympus PEN E-P5 Dimensions   Why am I excited? Well look at it, fantastic retro small looks Build quality, I handled one at SRS Microsystems during a Olympus launch event Small size, best camera is the one you have on you Fast autofocus, most of my subjects move a lot.

Meet Nero our black Labrador Retriever puppy

By on 24 June, 2013 in News

Meet Nero Benson of Whipsnade, our gorgeous black Labrador Retriever puppy. Nero was born in May 2013 as the son to Parkhatch Maisey and Cerbora Red Rum of Leospring. Nero is a kind spirited Labrador pup out of a litter of six. Nero has four sisters and one brother, all being raised by Mum and Granny. It will go without saying that he will be featured as an ongoing popular model on this site.   Why did we pick Nero the black Labrador? Well lets just say Nero chose us. My eldest daughter, Isabella, was truly afraid of dogs. When a dog crossed her path, she would rather jump in a stream than enounter the dog, not that that would have helped with a Labrador of course. When we arrived at the breeder we were greeted by Nero’s mum, Parkhatch Maisey, and his grandmother, Get Away Girl. Both are the most gentle of dogs we have come across, and to my surprise Isabella...
