Photo.

I’ve been wielding a camera for years, shooting everything from weddings and ad campaigns to standing in the rain trackside at Silverstone. These are some of the things I have done and learnt over the years.

You have got to be kidding me?

Someone showed me a link this week to a program called Piccure designed to remove camera shake and motion blur from photographs. If this was an iPhone app, aimed at cleaning up those shaky images shot in nightclubs it'd be brilliant. Phone cameras just can't deal with...

Photo of the Week – Stop the Bus!

Photo of the Week – Stop the Bus!

I was confined to an exhibition hall because a monsoon had descended on Peterborough Arena and the rest of the show I was at was rained off. Not exactly conducive to photography but hey, I like a challenge and that challenge came from 'Maxxis babe' Sarah. Something...

I talk a lot about technique here on the blog. It's only a very small part of photography as a whole but it's not until actually using the camera becomes second nature that you can start really thinking about all the other stuff. Seeing a different angle or...

Lessons Learnt: The Video Edition

Lessons Learnt: The Video Edition

I've been shooting a fair amount of video of late and I'll be the first to admit I am having to scale quite a learning curve.  Aside from the obvious, there are a lot of differences between shooting still and moving images. Some of this might seem a bit obvious, but...

Photo of the Week: Contre-Jour

Photo of the Week: Contre-Jour

I love to shoot into the sun. Or to give it it's grander name: contre-jour, French for 'against the day'. Typically, the rule of thumb is to keep the sun at your back so your subject is lit by it but I hope you have noticed by now, I don't much care for typical. So...

Q&A: What portable lighting should I get?

I've been getting some question sent to me lately on the blog, Facebook and Twitter, which is brilliant. It means I can turn them into posts so everyone can hopefully benefit from the answers. First up was Matt with a question about lighting: Hi Simon I found your...

Photo of the Week – Jen & Sam

Sometimes my job sucks! I have to walk around Castle Combe taking photos of some incredible rally cars, chat with the drivers and owners, and stand trackside and shoot them in action from any angle I like. Then, to just to make matters worse, I am cajoled into...

Some recent work

Some recent work

It struck me recently that between my Tuesday Photo of the Week and Friday opinions and how-to posts I'm not sharing as much new work as I should be here on my blog. So, to correct this, here are some of the images I shot last weekend. I was lucky enough to be working...

Photo of the Week – 500 Abarth

Earlier in the summer I shot this tidy little Fiat 500 Abarth down on the banks of the river Severn facing towards the setting sun. I wanted to make the image a little different so I decided to capture the car from 2 angles in the same shot. To capture the colour and...
