Is Kodak Portra a film without character? For me, for what I want from film, yes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not trying to be negative about what is an …

Posts, Reviews, and Ideas

If you are in marketing, and producing videos for the web you should be shooting, editing and delivering in 4K from now on. I’ve said it, 720p/1080p is no longer …

This is such a cool black and white film! For 400  ISO, this film is not very grainy. It’s actually really smooth, and coupled with the high speed which lets …

About Me I love photography, travel, reviewing gear and making technical tutorials.

This site is all about sharing my photos, and providing insight on where to get some great shots around the world.

Leica Rangefinder Fan

I’m an avid fan of Leica gear and after using loads of compacts and DSLRs from Canon, Nikon and others, I have settled on the Leica M system.

What I love about it is the timelessness of the lenses, and that I am able to shoot with a system similar to that which was used decades ago. Leica Ms rely 100% on the skills of the photographer…

…the result is always 100% your own work, not the work of computers in the camera.

My Favourite Type of Photography

Street photography. Particularly at night.

One of the things I love to do is walk around after sunset ad photograph all the lights, shadows and look for whatever we don’t normally notice about what is happening after dark in public areas.

Please contribute

Please get in touch, if you want to share photos or reuse mine, share ideas I’d love to hear from you. I want to create a resource for photography, review and any creative or photo journalism ideas. Always keen to hear from people.

Photo Journalism ...and trying new gear or ideas

Well this is a cute image. Sometimes they say everything just works out with a photograph. In this case, a couple of things worked. The squirrel was still enough for me to get the framing dead centre for one thing. Neat. Shame about the concrete wall in the background. I …

My Camera of Choice Leica Ms

Well, I don’t have a camera of choice.

I have a system of choice, and that system is Leica. Full Stop, Leica. Sure, they are handmade and uber expensive, but, the Leica M mount lenses have kept the same mount since the 1950s. Their systems will be compatible for years to come.

Spend any large $s on any other system, and eventually the lens mount will be out of date, or something in the camera will fail. With Leica, systems will be around forever. Beat that for value.

My Leica Lenses and Bodies

It is funny, when we receive promotional or items like this from Leica, they tend to arrive better packed than expensive lenses and cameras from other manufacturers. That was what the dealer at the camera store told me when I bought the Leica Travel Mug. Key features include: Made in …

Its green. Very green. My little green baby. Well, after getting into Leica I decided that I wanted to get a special edition one of some kind. For the price, …
