#SolarFilmParty – the Big Reveal!

Six months ago, I wrote here and over on Emulsive about starting a couple of solargraphs on the summer solstice. These beer cans with holes in, containing a sheet of photo-paper, would record the path of the sun as it crossed the sky from its highest pass on the 21st of June, to its lowest on […]

Sunrise, Sunset. 2016 on Film

I’ll be writing up my 52 Rolls summary in the next week or so, but suffice to say that shooting so much film through 2016 has been a complete game-changer. When I read about the project (on Emulsive) in Poland the week before last New Year, I couldn’t have imagined that it would have become […]

Film Wasting in Newcastle

Another post from my 52 Rolls project – shooting film 52 weeks a year… Two rolls for the price of one in this post (numbers 14 and 15 of the year already) but shot over the course of a couple of days and on a single trip, so I though I’d combine them.

‘A Day in the Life…’ A Photobook.

I wrote a bit last month about my intention to produce 12 zines, books or physical releases (of some sort) of my pictures over twelve consecutive months. Having decided that we’re emigrating next month, that might prove difficult, but at least I got as far as number four… After ‘No Constructive Conclusions‘, ‘Nighttime Adventures in […]

Fabryka, a Photozine.

Back in December, I put together a zine of the work Wojtek, Pavel and I created for our No Constructive Conclusions exhibition and followed that with Nighttime Adventures in Neopan – a collection of nighttime, TLR shots by Dan Smith and I. As it was January, a time of resolutions and unlikely ambitions, I got carried away […]

January’s #FP4Party Roll

For the first few days of shoot week of this month’s @FP4Party I was still in Eastern Europe. We’d been visiting my mother-in-law in Poland, and as we’ve done a couple of times now, travelled to the mountains on the Polish/Czech border on New Year’s Day. Being the day after the main event, it’s usually […]

Nighttime Adventures in Neopan

A while back, I wrote about putting together my first ‘zine. It was a collection of the photographs that Wojtek, Pavel and I had shown as part of our No Constructive Conclusions shows. While it contained six pictures from each of us, the others had given me free reign to design, produce and distribute this […]

Photo Oxford with the 7 Artisans.

Originally written for the 35mmc website. At some point last week, I saw Hamish’s tantalising pictures on social media of ten boxes containing the new 7Artisans, 50mm lenses that he had for sale. It’s a lens that’s been causing quite a stir since its launch, due to the winning formula of being an M-mount 50mm, […]
