2018 – Embracing The Blur

If you follow my blog you’ll know that each year I like to set myself a theme. I’m not good at sticking to projects that need a certain sort of image in a set time frame, but a loose theme for a year really helps my creativity and if ever I’m stuck for ideas it gives me […]

Are You Looking for a Challenge in 2018?

2017 is another year that has absolutely flown by! I’m hoping I’m not alone in feeling that and that it’s not a sign of getting older!!

I’m very excited to have an article in the latest edition of The Big Photo magazine! I was asked few weeks ago if I would be happy to combine my blog posts comparing the Lensbaby Velvet 56 and 85 into an article for the magazine, which of course I was. Even though I’ve known for […]

Daily Photo Prompts ~ December 2017

My Year With Unconventional Lenses – An Update

It’s rather ironic that having a creative business sometimes means that we have so little time to follow that creative pursuit that lies at the very heart of our business. I’m currently on a business accelerator program that sees me heading into Manchester once or twice each week. Not only does that take a great […]

Start Where You Are

Start Where you are…… It’s a rather well known phrase and I seem to keep stumbling across it recently. I usually see it used as business advice, and excellent advice it is too. If we keep telling ourselves we need to do one more training course, get a better logo, redesign our website, write at […]
