I take photos, Teach other people how to take photos and Write about taking photos.

I am not what most people would consider to be an average photographer. Armed with a selection of compact film cameras, I never leave home without one and I am always ready to capture anything that happens around me. I always have on going projects witch I am always adding weather it be my photographs of Brighton swimming club (http://goo.gl/9M8JE), montage portraits (http://fragmentedportraits.tumblr.com/) or Festival Wellies photos on Flickr (http://goo.gl/AX68a).

In October 2008 my first solo book Hot Shots (http://goo.gl/GWPj6) was released in the UK, it sold out its UK and US print runs in under a year.  It is an instructional book for everyday people and is intended to help them sex up their photography, without being too bogged down in technical jargon. Since then I have written a 2nd book Photo Op (US title) / 52 Photographic Projects (UK title) (http://goo.gl/zomTD). This book goes more in depth in to 52 different photo graphic techniques. I have a passion for passing on my knowledge of photog

About 10 weeks ago Brighton is one of the best places to watch flocks of Starlings. Todays murmuration was not that big but it was made a little more special because of how stormy it was. I find it amazing that none of them cash into the sea.

On the subject of Brighton I have few places still open on my February 22nd and 23rd Brighton photo workshop: http://lomokev.com/hot-shots-the-photography-course/

Shot on a Samsung Galaxy NX and then tweaked in Lightroom. I written quite a bit about Lightroom lately check some of my tutorials and tips on my blog: http://lomokev.com/blog/category/adobe-lightroom/

About 12 weeks ago Taken just after my my morning sea swim. I don't do many selfies anymore, when I used to do a lot they were called self portraits. Taken with the Samsung Galaxy NX.

About 9 weeks ago I originally posted this to Flickr eight years ago. So the description is a little dated. Just thought it would be interesting to post as the West Pier is really on it’s last legs now, in this image from 2001 the West Pier is relatively in tact.

Original Description:

Going though the archives at the moment because moneys to tight to mention so I can’t afford to process film at the moment (although I’m still shooting I don’t think I will run out film any time soon). This was taken at the first Fatboy Slim Big Beach Boutique in 2001. It was off the hook to say the least. I have a few more in my Flickr stream here.

About 6 weeks ago +FUJIFILM UK  Instax Share SP-1

This was on of the highlights from the Photo Show at the Birmingham NEC. Amongst all the Digital photo stuff I found this little gem, it’s an Instax printer that you can print to from an Android or iOS device. The print pops out and you watch it develop on real instant film. It’s impossible to tell that it’s a digital image. One nice feature there is simple reprint button that lets you reprint the last printed image without having to touch the app. It’s only just come out at the moment it’s about £150 but expect that to come down. Find out more on Fuji’s site here: http://www.fujifilm.com/products/instant_photo/printers/instax_share_sp_1/

About 4 weeks ago I've been shooting in the mornings with an Olympus O-MD EM-5 + under water housing that Olympus leant me. Because it's quite hard to get a decent shot in the water when you bashed by the waves I just leave it on continues high mode, which means I have a lot animated gif fodder. It's an amazing camera system, I reviewed the Olympus O-MD EM-1 last year which you can read about here: http://lomokev.com/blog/olympus-om-d-e-m1-hands-review/

About 2 weeks ago On Tuesday morning I had a really early start. I swim with Tim Andrews (http://lomokev.com/blog/tim-andrews-hill-montage-portrait/) on the other side of the West Pier at 6AM before the sun came up . When I was done I cycled back to Brighton Pier where my swimming club is to have a shower. After that I was able to take some shots of the swimmers as they had there later swim.

About 4 weeks ago This is the September - November batch of Street Style Montage Portraits that I shot for Brighton source Magazine. Unfortunately Brighton Source had to close at the beginning of the year because of shrinking advertising revenues so these are the last that I will shot for source magazine. I will still be shooting them as a personal project and will continue posting them here and on my fragmented portraits tumblr: http://fragmentedportraits.tumblr.com/

You can read more about the unfortunate demise of Brighton Source and my future plans for the project in my latest blog post here: http://lomokev.com/blog/last-of-my-brighton-source-magazine-street-style-montage-portraits/

About 3 weeks ago This is an except from my recent batch of Hidden Lightroom tips, little Lightroom knowledge nuggets that you might not necessarily know. Read all the tips on my blog here: http://lomokev.com/blog/nine-hidden-tips-adobe-lightroom-5/

Tip #4 Unlocking Link Focus in Compare Mode

If you are comparing images in the Library and Develop module you can zoom into images to compare details, when you scroll around one image the other one will also scroll. This is great if both images are shot on a tripod and everything is in the same place in both images but if they were shot hand held certain details might not be in the same location which will make comparing images harder. Zoomed images can be scroll independently if the Shift key is held down when moving one of the images.
