Why the camera adds 10 pounds. A picture does not always tell the truth.

  via GIPHY Continuing on from my other articles talking about body image and the aesthetics culture I discovered this article on Petapixel which talks about how focal length and your distance from the subject can effect how the subject looks. As a photographer I’m aware of this but I think it’s useful to talk about in the context of body issues here on the blog. This isn’t going to be…

I just got home from the London Pride parade for a quick change before heading out for some dancing and celebrating with friends and I thought I’d share these pictures straight out of the camera with you. What an amazing Parade this year with all the wonderful colour, flesh, music and paegentry we’ve come to expect from these events and also for some reason a giant Burrito. Happy Pride everybody….



It's the journey that matters
June 23, 2016

It’s the journey that matters I snapped this shot on the way home as I passed by Turnham Green tube station. The light was just right and I also used the HDR feature on my iPhone. I like the symmetry of the image and the colour tones. It was lucky to get the shot with just one passerby because it was during peak hour but I always like to try…


Im starting to think about what the next adventure will be.

May 11, 2016

I’m coming to the end of this trip to the UK. It’s been nearly a year and I am looking forward to moving on. I’m here for another two months and I am starting to think about what my next adventure will be. I’ve had an offer to do some more exploring around Edinburgh which I am keen to take up and I’m thinking about heading over to Barcelona again…

Photobomb. Get out of your bubble

January 16, 2016

I’ve been wanting to share more photos for a while so I figure why not start dropping more photobombs on the blog. If you’re no following me on Instagram yet then you should. I was stuck in the house all morning and I decided I needed to get out of the house. This shot felt perfect for how I was feeling. I had to get off my couch and out…


5 Things that make moving around a lot easier

September 17, 2015

After spending the last month living out of my suit case, working and trying to find a place to live I thought I’d put together a quick list of a few things I’ve discovered make moving around a lot easier. Whether you’re travelling or relocating for work like me, there are some things you can do which will take a lot of the stress out of it. The first thing…


Lamington National Park Binna Burra.

May 22, 2015

 My wanderlust today took me on a drive back in to the Goldcoast Hinterland and up to Lamington National Park. I decided to take a trip up to Binna Burra, I had no idea what was up there, I just picked it because I haven’t been there yet. It’s probably the best trip I have made yet. It’s not very far from the Goldcoast and you can get out there…


Barcelona La Sagrada Familia

December 22, 2014

Top of my list of places to visit in Barcelona is the Sagrada Familia. This iconic structure in the heart of Barcelona is a must see for anybody who has a love of architecture and human creativity. It’s one of the most stunning buildings I have ever seen and when finished will be quite simply breath taking. Barcelona is famous for it’s architecture particularly by Antoni Gaudí. Gaudi’s work can be seen…


Paris. OMG Paris!

December 4, 2014

So my wanderings continue and this time they have taken me to Paris. I jumped on the Euro Star at 5.40 am and slept my way in to France and not in the good kind of way. I’m sorry Londoners but where London is pretty, Paris is absolutely STUNNING. I have only been here a day and I’m in love. The city center with it’s history is beautiful but the…


York. Puddings, ghosts and Cathedrals.

November 19, 2014

When I mentioned to my housemate that that I was going to visit Edinburgh he suggested that I stop by York on the way. I have heard about York but I never thought of it as a destination that should be high on my list. Boy was I wrong. I’m so glad that I made the time to stop here because it was even better than I hoped for. I…


It’s alive!

November 12, 2014

My Camera is back from the dead. After falling and bouncing over 30 feet it turned out that my poor camera was repairable, a true testament to the durability of the MKII and the great team over at Canon have returned it to me almost as good as new. I say almost with a small amount of affection because the date and time setting no longer works and the shutter…
