I recently reviewed the Nikon D3200, a new entry-level DSLR. As part of my test, I shot some portraits of Sarah at Gwdihw, a local bar which has a pretty cool interior. I used a pretty basic set-up to capture these (as always), using only the kit lens and a 50mm f/1.8 lens for all of the shots. This year I’ve been lucky enough to use the camera at the very top of Nikon’s range (the D4) and this, almost […]
These are some of my favourite photos from this year, and feature my ever-patient and ever-photographed friend Liz, who’s back with her beautiful red hair (remember her from Penarth?) Last week, I had the privilege of getting my hands on a new camera before it was even announced, the Sony RX100 (click this link to read my review on TechRadar… it’s the highest score I’ve ever given a camera by the way).

For those not in the know, it’s the museum of Welsh life, and also includes St Fagans Castle (which looked more like a big house to me from the outside – there was a wedding going on […]

The owners were more than accommodating […]
This month I’m proud to say that my Cardiff Arcades Project work appears in one of my favourite magazines (one I actually subscribe to, woot!), Mollie Makes. For those of you not familiar with this publication, it’s a craft and vintage magazine aimed at young women which was launched just over a year ago produced by Future Publishing (which is handily where I work, but in another department…) I’ve been wanting to get my photos and words about the Cardiff […]
