"Kevin, you're pushing new boundaries in your photography, and I like your thinking! The vapor trail is just a bit too sharp, and specially where it lifts off the moon, makes it seem like two separate images. I would love to see a revisit of…"

The First Couple Shoot

Posted on March 21, 2015 at 13:00 0 Comments

It has been 16 or so months of firsts since picking up a camera with any intent at all back in 2013. In fact, being so new to photography means that just about all the work I do is pretty much a first. This was made imminently clear, in the…


Why-oh-Why DPC!?

Posted on November 20, 2014 at 10:48 6 Comments

I actually wanted to call this blog entry "Why I now hate DPC", which is completely tongue-in-cheek, but I feared it may create the wrong impression.


Anyway, now that I have your attention;

In the beginning, it was all about experimenting and fiddling and ..... well ..... fun. And besides, all…

It was a little nerve wracking as it would be my fist shoot with my new lights outside of my lounge...... anyway.

The best advice I…

No, this is not some sort of nod to THAT book, nor the upcoming movie actually, but rather a bit of self-reflection on my photography.

When I have a look at my work, well when I say “work”, I mean the progression of my photography since the time I attended DPC in September 2013, I have noticed something quite interesting in that although I have a pretty balanced distribution of colour versus mono shots, I by far prefer the black and whites. By a substantial margin no…
