I always love shooting at Dewsall, such a stunning venue and always really well orchestrated by their wedding planners. Sam and Scott got married towards the end of summer, and the sun came out for their al-fresco wedding in the front lawn.Read More
As is usual I do a review at the end of each year, this is a brief overview of my professional and personal photography work and a bit about what I did in the previous year.
I enjoy this exercise quite a bit, and it allows me to reflect on the year, and it’s nice to go back through the previous years and see what I’ve achieved.
I don’t tend to set myself goals for each year, but instead a general sense of improving skill wise and moving forward.
I hope you enjoy this look at my 2018, feel free to comment below if you have any questions at all.Read More
I don’t think I’ve ever shot a wedding for someone who had quite such an infectious smile as Jen when she married Ed in the summer.Read More
The Fuji XH-1 is a stills and video workhorse in the Fuji lineup. Featuring a reinforced metal body, in body image stabilisation and a top plate lcd screen, this camera is currently everything I need in a professional setup.
Long gone are the days of ultra retro styling and although you get a couple of dials on the top this camera is much more ‘DSLR’ soars than anything else Fuji has put out in recent years, this ain’t a bad thing however as function trumps form when you are using these things constantly. A camera that can do the job is better than one that looks damn cool doing it. (However the new Fuji XF10 does looks awesome and is going to have a place in my bag)
I’ll keep this review simple and free of sensor testing charts and all that, it’s the same 24mp sensor in all the Fuji current lineup. For me it’s about the body and how it works and how it handles.
Magnesium alloy construction, reinforced lens mouth, weather sealed. It’s a tough beast which I’ve bashed about and soaked in Iceland this summer, it holds up. The chunky grip is really nice, especially if you're holding the camera all day it's much more comfortable that anything else in the Fuji lineup.
The sensor moves around in the camera giving you 5 stops of image stabilisation with any lens. Nice for low light slow moving photos but really really great for video, it takes out camera shake and gives nice smooth hand held shots. I’m doing more video these days and this alone is worth the upgrade from the XT-2.
That's pretty much all of the differences form the XT-2, the body and the IBIS, but if you're using Fuji cameras for any kind of video work you will love this upgrade.
Feel free to put your questions and comments below and I'll get back to you.
This review of the DJI Mavic Air is also my first experience with a drone, I've never flown one before so this is all from zero experience, to learning the controls to hopefully starting to master them.Read More
Back in early 2018 I headed down to London for a couple of days to be Ed & Ambers London wedding photographer, I packed in a little light street photography the day before to get my juices flowing then headed over to capture this wonderful wedding.Read More
As part of my Iceland trip I kept up with a little photo project which was to take pictures of my feet on the many varied landscapes of Iceland. It makes for an interesting little photo essay and highlights the wonderful variety of this stunning place even if you’re only looking down. Enjoy.Read More
