Photography project – Albert embankment

Albert Embankment lies at the side of the river Thames and stretches from Vauxhall bridge to Westminster bridge. As it doesn't have all the attractions that Southbank on the opposite side of Westminster has, it is a lot quieter which makes for a rather peaceful stroll. I thought I would take a few photos on … Continue reading Photography project – Albert embankment

Geffrye museum – Shoreditch

The Geffrye museum, situated on Kingsland road in East London, explores the home and home life from 1600 to the present day.

The museum is set in beautiful 18th-century Grade I-listed almshouses of the Ironmongers' Company and … Continue reading Geffrye museum – Shoreditch

A guide to using external camera flashes

I am a lover of natural light and feel much more comfortable controlling the exposure on my camera when outdoors where there is loads of available light, but there are occasions when this is not always possible. An external camera flash is a powerful piece of equipment that opens up a lot of opportunities to improve photos particularly when there … Continue reading A guide to using external camera flashes

The rookery at Streatham common

Situated between Streatham and Norwood, Streatham common is a mass of green space that is hard to miss. I have lived in and around the area for over 20 years and so have spent a lot of time on the common. I have attended festivals, fun fairs, bonfire nights and even school sports days on … Continue reading The rookery at Streatham common
