  1. Joy of Seeing | Light, Colour & Gesture

    02 Apr 2021

    This contemplation is about being receptive and keeping my heart open to something truly profound. Three things keep me focused: Colour The Light The Energy in the Expression - The Gesture. The Gesture is the glue that binds the moment into a compelling narrative. This Energy can be a Skateboarder…


  2. 30 Day Challenge Day 29: Process

    09 Mar 2021

    It’s an ongoing process of learning Seeing. Vision. Feeling. It’s been an amazing journey the last 30 Days. I have come to appreciate the gift of sight and seeing with my heart. Beauty in the ordinary. I often think why? What is the point of this? I create images everyday…

    07 Mar 2021

  5. 30 Day Challenge Day 13

    25 Feb 2021

    It is the first Subject I needed to be aware of. No one told me this. It was an awakening that came to me. It made perfect sense. All other Subjects are secondary to this glorious moment of expression. Light. Against the original canvas of BLACK. Light is my primary…


  6. 2020 Vision | All I Want For Christmas

    25 Dec 2020

    All I want for Christmas is that we celebrate the birthday of baby Jesus in the glory of his peaceful blessing. I see and feel his presence in you. No earthly pleasure can compete n this moment. I am greatful that I as a Photographer can harness the light of…


  7. 2020 Vision | Light From Above

    19 Dec 2020

    This really makes sense now. Our Sun ☀️ is high above. Raining down golden light on us. So it makes perfect sense to position my light source above mums head and slightly forward so only edges of the light would land on her face, feathering fine detail. This is so…


  8. 2020 Vision | In Gods Image

    18 Dec 2020

    Preserving her Dignity has become the greatest challenge and privilege of my life. Dementia doesn’t care. It has no opinion either way about my personal mission. It does its thing, slowly and insidiously, even when I strive to bond and connect. I succeed simply because each moment created in 35mm…


  9. 2020 Vision | The Original Backdrop

    18 Dec 2020

    My technique is very simple. I start with a Black Canvas. Just like God did. And then, “let there be Light”. Ohh those epic words. The foundation of all creation. The original backdrop was Black. It makes perfect sense. By adding light exactly where I want it, I paint my…


  10. 2020 Vision | Light Show

    08 Dec 2020

    This year has been all about Light. Mr Kodak said, “Know Light for all you are worth”. I paraphrase, words to that effect. I took this seriously. Studying how my Flash works and how to use it On and Off Camera has been a beautiful study. This study has helped…


  11. 2020 Vision | Light Magic

    30 Nov 2020

    The Fuji XT1 paired with the XF 35mm F1.4 is still a magical partnership. When you add a Speedlight even more so. All of my Flash Tools are for my Nikon Bodies; fortunately, I have triggers for both Nikon and my Fuji’s. This afternoon, I paired my manual only Yongnuo…


  12. 2020 Vision | The Bigger Picture

    26 Nov 2020

    Having a great Subject matter is important. My Subject has become even greater. This lockdown has inspired me to study. I have been studying photography deeply this year. The Light has become my muse. Ambient Light and it’s natural always on expression reveals a temperamental nature in this part of…


  13. 2020 Vision | Light Source

    19 Nov 2020

    Panting with Light has be the original craft. The Camera is almost 200 years old. Let there be light 💡 It only took a few billion years before man caught up. This magical box is miraculous - it can capture and hold onto a beam of Light at 1/8000 of…


  14. 2020 Vision | Expression of Light

    12 Nov 2020

    The light is my number one focus now. Colour comes second. Shape, Line, Texture, Patterns all became subconscious considerations in a matter of seconds once the light speaks to me. Yes, the light talks to me, her message is loud and clear; “here I am”. #expressionoflight #mastersofphotography #xpro2 #xf16mmf28 #depthoffieldphotography


  15. 2020 Vision | Morning Vision

    08 Nov 2020

    Getting up early is magical. Health benefits is one thing, greeting the morning light is good for my spirit. My Camera is happy. This image at 18mm is perfectly Wide enough. I love the XF16mm and yet, at 18mm, which translate to 27mm is a field of view that is…


  16. 2020 Vision | The Subject

    04 Nov 2020

    Something has shifted for me this year. All this time, I have been thinking, what is my photographic Identity? Weddings, Events, Portraits, Street, Architecture, Moments, Animals? I have created all of these images - yes Weddings too. That wasn’t my identity…..no. I had a moment when studying the online course…


  17. 2020 Vision | Seeing The Light

    12 Oct 2020

    Mr Eastman of Kodak once said, “light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography. Since completing my Online Course with Joel Meyerowitz, the Light has become a major subject…


  18. 2020 Vision | Following The Light

    06 Oct 2020

    The quality and direction of the light recently has caught my attention. The light has been my subject. Anything caught in her path has been rendered magical. Chasing Light, that’s all I am doing. Thanks for reading x #followthelight #xpro2 #artisan35mm12


  19. 2020 Vision | Spot Light

    18 Sep 2020

    I really love how the light behaves like a spot light in a theatre. Framing this moment, waiting for the arrival of the characters to bring this scene to life. This is Maida Vale; consider this environment a Theatre with multiple back drops. The community, the characters who bring their…


  20. 2020 Vision | Back To Black

    17 Sep 2020

    I really love the symbiotic relationship between light and darkness. The 2nd verse of #thetaoteching speaks about #paradox and how we can’t have one without the other. Image creation became a possibility when light 💡 came into being. After all, our Sun 🌞 is an always on 24/7 light source.…


  21. 2020 Vision | I see Jesus Everywhere

    14 Sep 2020

    My Daily walks are my sanctuary now. Camera in hand. Empty mind. Just walking. Observing. Seeing. Feeling. Waiting for life to say this is yours. I see Jesus in all his disguises. Disguised as plants. Sentient life form. My mother’s eyes, reveals his presence. Glorious light of the world. The…


  22. 2020 Vision | Creation

    19 Jul 2020

    Every creative act is in direct proportion to some opposition. The last year has seen my neighbourhood and life stressed by distraction and regeneration. I see the regeneration of my neighbourhood as a metaphor for my life right now. Out with the old, create space for something new. My childhood…


  23. 2020 Vision | Dawns Early Light

    25 Jun 2020

    Early morning light. Golden time of day. That first ray of light brings the darkness to life. Light equals life. The day begins. Create. Love & Make a difference… Thanks for Reading x


  24. 2020 Vision | The Expression of Light

    18 Jun 2020

    Gesture. This phrase from Jay Maisel is at the source of every great moment in an image. What is the Gesture in an image? It took me forever to come up with an answer. I came to the conclusion that Gesture is the expression…..of life. This image is the Gesture…


  25. 2020 Vision | The Expression Of Light

    20 May 2020

    I am studying Light, Colour & Gesture by Jay Maisel at the moment. It’s a wonderful study about everything else regarding creating an image. There is no mention of Camera Gear or anything technical. This book is all about being open, receptive and responsive to Light. As I read this…
