talkphotography megga meet 2014

By on 21 May, 2014 in Photography

Last weekend the talkphotography megga meet 2014 was held at my village hall. It would have been rude not to attend, say hello to a few people, and join a few sessions. And I’m glad I did, they were a great bunch of people, some very interesting talks, I’ve done something new that I’ve never done before. Dog photography session My main interest was the dog session, they were two-fold. First portrait photography, followed a bit later in the day by some action shots. These are my picks. Bird of prey photography session The next session was about birds of prey. I love how the sulking bird was hanging its head. Model photography session And then finished off with a model shoot. This was new to me, I’ve never done anything like this before. Whilst there were the opportunities indoors with studio lights and backgrounds, the weather was so nice, the light was great,...

Today I had a walkabout and chat for the AVForums London Street Photography Walk. The walk organised by  Dan Cook for members of AVForums who frequent the photography section.  We met up at 11am at Covent Garden, still deemed as an early start by some. The photos Below please find the gallery containing a selection of photos taken at the London Street Photography Walk today.

By on 31 December, 2013 in Photography

Lions at Whipsnade Wild Animal Park have always been a big feature. One Sunday this week, my family and I went for a nice walk around the animal park.

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. More information can be found here. Olympus 17mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm Panasonic 35-100mm...
