Blog

Welcome to my blog, this is where I post random images, thoughts and musings on photography.  This is kind of a diary and not all photos will be the end product. Its basically a dump for all my ideas and mental chatter. All opinions are my own and should usually be taken with a pinch of salt.

Teide is an active volcano on the island of Tenerife. An eruption hasn't occurred for a number of years,  but sulphur is often emitted and tremors have been felt a number of times in recent years. 

Didsbury mosque, Manchester, 2017

last Friday I was lucky enough to photograph at Didsbury Mosque on assignment for the Financial Times. We were given access to shoot during prayer time which is a very rare experience for non muslims. After everything that happened last week in Manchester there was a strong sense of community, with everybody standing together in such hard times.

Gear Note: 

I shot all of these on my Fuji Xpro2 and Fuji X-T1. These cameras are great in these situations, they are quiet and unobtrusive. Plus on such a warm day the Fuji X System is much lighter than the Nikon kit.

An emotional day on Tuesday covering the aftermath of the Manchester bombing.  As a photojournalist there are times when you are forced into action in the most demanding of circumstances. In such situations you have to really concentrate on capturing the scenes in front of you otherwise your emotions can get the better of you. Witnessing the actions of the emergency services and the unity of the people of Manchester was very humbling.
