Fun fact: the Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro lens is the lens that convinced me to switch to micro four thirds. I tried it in a shop on an Olympus Pen F. I took a penny out of my pocket and started shooting. I fell in love with the lens there and then. Here are my thoughts and some photo examples of the Olympus 60mm f2.8 macro lens for micro four thirds.Read More

There have been a lot of weighty discussions lately about gear. The Sensor Size War of 2019 is still raging online where ever you look. It’s all a big stupid, isn’t it? Here are my thoughts on the matter.Read More
The Olympus Pen F is a super (and I mean super) stylish camera that was aimed squarely towards high-end consumers when it first came out. As the price slowly slips over the years, it’s getting a bit of a cult following, so I thought I’d review the Pen F in 2019. Is it still worth considering?Read More
The 7Artisans 7.5mm f2.8 fisheye lens is such a gem. I can’t believe the price of it compared to the results it can give you. I’ve been using it steadily for over 3 months now, for everything from astrophotography to every day walk-about photography. Here are my thoughts, and loads of photo examples for you to take a look at.Read More
The Lumix G7 in many ways was a revelation when it was first released. It was one of the most affordable ways to get 4k, and it all came in a brilliantly thought-out small camera body too.
But it was released in (hold onto your hats!) 2015, which seems like an age in Photography Land.
So is it still worth a consideration in 2015? Well, I still have one. I still use my G7 — both professionally and personally — and I blummin’ love it. But of course, like any camera, it is far from perfect. So let’s dive in!Read More
One of the greatest things about the micro four thirds camera system is how easy it can be to adapt other brand lenses and even vintage lenses to the system. But if this is something you haven’t tried before, it can be a bit daunting. So here’s a beginner’s guide to adapting lenses.Read More
I've been dabbling with astrophotography for several years now, just casually trying to improve. I'm by no means an expert but I think I have enough experience now to do a beginner's guide. So here it is! A beginner’s guide to astrophotography.Read More
Cheap camera gear, good photos?
Is it possible?
Course it is. Here are 10 awesome camera / lens combos under £500 that I’ve personally used over the years. I’ll even pop some other suggestions at the end of the blog.
(and yes I know £500 is still a lot of money, but in the grand scheme of photography you can certainly spend a whole lot more!)

Micro Four Thirds isn’t for everyone. Have a read to see if it’s for you. There are many pros and cons to the m43 system, and for me, the benefits far outweigh the negatives (and there are negatives!) but it all depends on you, and what you want to achieve. So let’s get stuck in.Read More
The FalconEyes RX-18TD might be a pain in the butt to say, but it sure is an impressive light.
I’ve taken the FalconEyes light on two commercial jobs now, so I thought it’s time I gave it a proper, real-world, real life review. With real results. Because that’s what we’re all about on this site!Read More
I think 2018 has been a great year for my photography outside of my commissioned work. I’ve evolved my colour grading quite a bit, and I think — even through sheer practice and time spent on photography — my skills have improved quite a bit.
That’s one of the reasons why I love photography so much: There’s always room to improve. There’s always a new skill to learn, a new technique to try, a new project to take on.
Isn’t that all a bit cool?
I’ve decided to keep this list to my “passion project” photography — as in, not any commissioned wedding or portrait work. I may make a seprate list for that.
Anyway, without further any more waffling, here are my top 10 images of 2018.Read More
