When three gets you the desired result!
Buy, arrange, photograph, cook, eat. K.I.S.S.
I finally figured out the true purpose of a tripod and cable release.
When you find yourself in the picture and behind the camera.
My images are now available to licence from Stocksy United, a picture library created nearly 3 years ago by the founder of iStock - Bruce Livingstone.
Stocksy operates as a co-operative with all the photographers having a say in company matters.
With tightly curated content, market savvy prices and a desire to pay photographers a fair royalty rate, it may just be the saviour of library photography.
Straightforward, easy to use and full of exclusive imagery, I whole heartedly recommend a look.
All the above images are available to licence with prices starting from $15 and I`ll be adding more images to the collection every week.
It`s cold out, so I`m fueling up!
Opposite ends of a long weekend.
Ok, it`s not technically a "win" but it sure beats the last time I won anything.
Bear with me, I`ll explain.
In my last year at primary school I bought the lucky ticket that got 3rd prize in the raffle.
I trudged home with a waterproof PVC coat that was meant to be used when riding your bike in the rain.
It covered not only the rider, the bike and a rucksack but also the ground beneath my wheels.
It was XXL and I was 12.
To add insult to injury it was fluorescent yellow.
Everything else you need to know about that experience is summed up in the following sentence.
As I laid it on the kitchen table, my Mum said "That`s great, it`ll come in really handy."
Mum got the coat.
I`ve waited a few years to better it.
So a commended in the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards 2015 maybe not a win in the strictest sense of the word but knocks that coat into the long grass.
It`s not the easiest thing in the world to try and be a landscape photographer in London but there`s no harm in trying.
Lost. In more ways than one. Found on a hard drive from two years ago. No wind, no noise, no people. Minus 10 degrees and wondering if I was in over my head. Glencoe, Scotland. Good Times.
