The Blue Moon Supermoon
A few weeks ago, I shared my photos of the Full Sturgeon Moon on Vocal. You can see the story below. With the Full Sturgeon Moon happening on August 1st, I knew that we would have a Blue Moon Supermoon during the last day of this month. I wanted to document the event with my camera and show you some photos.
Of phones and photographs
Was a time I considered myself a photographer. Two Pentax manual SLR bodies, four lenses, lens hood, filters, tripod, camera bag, rolls of Kodachrome, Fujichrome, Ilford monochrome. A keen eye and a willingness to try out new things.
Photographing a Festival: What to Pack
Festival season is well upon us in the UK and as a live music photographer, I wanted to talk about some of the things I pack when it comes to shooting festivals.
Little Tuna Meets the Colt
I recently moved back to Michigan after being gone since childhood. I asked in a few Facebook groups about good places around me to photograph herons/egrets/bitterns. One place highly recommended was Kensington Metropark, so off I went.
Is This the Best Camera Bag On the Market?

Preserved Scandal: The History of Bob Guccione and Kodak Film
While ChatGPT continues to help provide background information in the beginning stages of research, it still falls flat when pulling specific information and offering a next step for further learning about a topic. This strength and weakness are both on full display when it comes to the history of Bob Guccione's use of Kodak film for his risqué photography, providing background on the format while omitting the story of when Kodak refused to process photographs of Cheryl Rixon.
QUARAN-TINDER: A Portrait Series of Thai Youth on Dating Apps During the Pandemic
As the world begins to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s becoming clear just how hard young adults have been hit. Many were just starting out on their educational and career paths when the pandemic hit, and the resulting lockdowns have left them feeling isolated and disconnected from their peers. Even now, three years on, it’s clear that the lockdown had a severe impact on personal development. For those who were just starting out at the beginning of the pandemic, they may have missed out on some of the most important experiences of their lives from their first day of college to finding lifelong friends. These experiences are critical to personal growth and development of important life skills. Additionally, the pandemic has taken a toll on mental health, something that policymakers are only beginning to address as COVID-19 becomes endemic.
What makes a good postcard?
I've been post-crossing as werewegian for over ten years now. In case you don't know, postcrossing.com is a great website where you send a postcard to a randomly generated address around the world, and when it arrives and is registered, you in turn receive a postcard from a third random party. It's a fun hobby and one of the reasons I like it is that as well as tourist, Royal Mail or shop bought postcards, I can send postcards made from my own photographs. I make these at moo.com.
First Photoshoot of 2023
As cliché as it sounds, 2023 really has come around so quickly. For me, 2022 was a dream of a year, both personally and professionally - maybe even my favourite year yet. I was lucky enough to travel to some beautiful cities, meet a lot of amazing people and work with clients I could have only dreamt of working with, and so, to say that I’m excited for 2023 is an understatement.
