  1. Choosing Capture One or Adobe Lightroom

    05 Dec 2019
    Post processing software has been on my mind this week, yesterday Capture One 20 was released and I have just finished listening to Derrick Story’s podcast, which I highly recommend, in which Derrick discusses photo editing applications. He took a poll of enthusiasts and professionals, in which Adobe’s Lightroom legacy…

  2. A few days in New York City with the Nikon Z6

    02 Nov 2019
    There is something about New York City, friends are always the best reason for me to visit, but from a photography point of view it’s the people and the light. The noise, the hustle and bustle is a gift for candid street photographers, stories on every corner - the people.…

  3. Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II versus Nikon Z6 - Part II

    20 Oct 2019
    I wanted to write this follow up to my brief side-by-side look at these two cameras as quickly as possible after my purchase of the Nikon Z6. Judging by the web traffic to the first article it is a choice that many are considering. I don’t love photography equipment, I…

  4. Leica M3 - The best film rangefinder for a 50mm lens

    24 Sep 2019
    By way of history, I have had a few Leica cameras over the last 20 years, all have been film with the exception of my Leica X typ113. My first Leica was a IIIc, purchased mostly out of curiosity, which I used for a little while with a similarly aged…

  5. Collecting Photographs

    27 Aug 2019
    The best advice I have received to improve my own photography is to look at the work of other photographers. Almost everything is available on-line now, but for me nothing compares to printed photographs Books are good and financially accessible, although generally print runs are small and once a volume…

  6. Wildlife With the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II

    12 Aug 2019
    Ring-Tailed Lemur - 40mm f/2.8 1/1250 This is an excuse to share something a bit different for me, aside from documenting family and travel, I typically pick up my camera for street photography. At the end of 2017 I took a one-on-one workshop on landscape photography, not only did this…

  7. Film vs. Digital Revisited - Opposites Attract

    20 Jun 2019
    For my street photography, I predominantly use an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II - alongside this but less frequently, I use a 1958 Leica M3 - for me these are close to being the best cameras for the way I take pictures - but they couldn’t be more different Olympus…

  8. The Street Photography Audience

    17 May 2019
    “Photos don’t exist without other peoples’ eyes” Interesting words from photographer John Sevigny on the always thought provoking United Nations of Photography podcast with Grant Scott For sure there are times that photographs are personal, for me only, but listening to this podcast was one of those moments that I…

  9. Mugshots - some of the best photography ever

    25 Apr 2019
    Just a short one… John Hollings - Larceny I was watching “Sofa Sessions” on YouTube just now, a relatively new series where photographer Martin Parr chats with other photographers. This session was with street photographer Bruce Gilden. Towards the end, at around 18 minutes, Gilden is talking about quality in…

  10. Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 17mm 1:1.2 PRO Review

    11 Apr 2019
    Why have I finally dropped my resistance and chosen to buy this lens I have always favoured the 35mm focal length in film and “full frame” digital - it’s not the first time I have compromised on weight, size, price, even functionality, to get the best I can possibly squeeze…
