NYC Behind the Scenes Video

I’m a bad youtuber. I know the key to growing on YouTube as a platform is consistency, but editing videos takes way longer than I can be bothered with. Capturing interesting video is also far more time consuming than still photography, due to things like alternative angles and b-roll being important to making movies more interesting and compelling. 

On my recent trip to New York City with Olympus PEN, I was lucky that we had someone with us capturing some behind the scenes footage for us.

Blogiversary!

Despite only returning to the whole blogging thing a few weeks ago, turns out today is a bit of a birthday. My first ever blog post was December 15th 2007... literally 10 years ago!!!!

Now obviously I’m not claiming to have blogged consistently for the entirety of the past 10 years. I haven’t blogged at all (besides the odd Guest blog on other people’s) for he past 4 years, but it’s still kinda crazy to think about the idea of blogging being that old, when we still talk about it being a ‘new thing’.

Going old skool

Although I grew up before cameras went digital, many people are surprised to hear that I've never actually developed my own prints. To be honest, as a child all my photos went off to Truprint or Boots to be processed, but even when I was at art college and we had my only formal photographic training, in the form of a 2 week module, I didn't actually venture into the dark room. If the truth be told, back then I really didn't care much for the chemical smell emanating from the airlock style doors.

Olympus 'OM-D Events' Workshop

I've always been sceptical about my teaching abilities in the past, so when Olympus asked if I would be up for doing a couple of workshops as part of their OM-D Events series, I was a little apprehensive. My main concern was how was I going to fill the 4 hour time slot with decent and worthwhile content that people would find both informative and inspiring?

I've never given any talks before, so I had no clue how long things take to talk about, but after a couple of days with a notepad and pen (old skool is still the way to brainstorm!), I managed to put together a decent framework. The main point of my talk was always going to be more theoretical and philosophical, rather than showing people lighting setups and the like. There are plenty of people out there teaching that kind of stuff.

Inside Fashion Week

As I've previously posted (here, here and here), I attend Fashion Week every season to see what's hot, and also to support some of my designer friends. I always have a camera with me, so if I ever see something I like, I take a photo of it... this happens a lot during fashion week!

Aaaaaaanyway, I was having lunch with my friend Sasha Wilkins, of Liberty London Girl fame a couple of months back, and she suggested I should give my fashion week images some sort of showcase, and you know what, she was right!

2011 Retrospective Book

As I mentioned in my 2011 Retrospective blog at the end of the year, I put together a book of all my favourite photos of the year (as I do every year). I use Blurbto get my books printed, and I have to say on this occasion they've really out done themselves!

I had a 25% discount voucher that needed to be used up by the end of 2011, so I submitted my order on the 31st December. I'm shocked that it's now the 6th of January, and I have the book in my hands. With a 2 day shipping service, that's a 4 day turnaround... over the new year period! Combined with the price, I really can't find any reason to go anywhere else!
