August Favourites

August Favourites

Hey guys! How are you? August has been a weird transitional month for me. But for now, I'd really like to put together a list of everything I'm loving this month - like a type of gratitude list I suppose, and a place to share with others some things that have bought...

How To Make A Contact Sheet in Photoshop and Lightroom

How To Make A Contact Sheet in Photoshop and Lightroom

In analogue photography, a contact sheet was traditionally used as a quick way for people to see all the images on a roll of film. It was done by laying the negatives out on top of light-sensitive photographic paper in the darkroom, and exposing it to light so that...

My 8 Step Photography Workflow – From Planning to Finals

My 8 Step Photography Workflow – From Planning to Finals

Establishing a photography workflow for myself both came naturally and is completely vital. It helps me to not feel overwhelmed, miss things out and produce consistently up to standard work. This is the photography workflow I would use for portrait, commercial, family...

Photo Walks & Being a Freelance Introvert

Photo Walks & Being a Freelance Introvert

Bonjour! Hello! How are you? I was pretty sure it was Monday today - but it turns out it's actually Tuesday. 🤷🏼‍♀️ One thing they just don't tell you about working for yourself is just how much you need to actually interact with other people in order to not be...

1 Photo Edited 5 Different Ways

1 Photo Edited 5 Different Ways

Oh hey there. How are you? I was browsing through youtube (as usual) and I came across a video by Jessica Kobeissi where she edited the same photo in 5 different styles. The editing/post-processing is generally one of my favourite part of my work so I wanted to jump...

Pink & Whimsical Portraits with Hannah

Pink & Whimsical Portraits with Hannah

A few weeks ago I met up with the wonderful Hannah with the intention to do some pretty spontaneous whimsical portraits and play around with what we could do. When Hannah stepped out of the train station with bright pink hair, I knew we had to do something awesome -...

Silhouette Film Photography –  Uni Work from 2011

Silhouette Film Photography – Uni Work from 2011

Where It Began A notice popped up on my email saying something along the lines of 'calling for images of cages!'. Way back in university I remember photographing some beautiful vintage birdcages so I decided to dig out my old hard drive and see what I could find - and...

Surprising Books I Read and Loved in January ’19

Surprising Books I Read and Loved in January ’19

I've thought about writing about the books I read for a little while now, and went back and forth whether or not to include it in this blog. But, you know, this blog is my place on the internet so I think it's the right place for this to go. I am a *fairly* slow...

9 Things I Wish I Knew Before Studying A Photography Degree

9 Things I Wish I Knew Before Studying A Photography Degree

Choosing what degree to study is a big decision. A lot of us (in the UK anyway) will only be able to get student loans to study one degree, so it's important to know what you are getting into. Here's a little bit of background of what led me to my photography degree,...

Home For the Weekend – Dogs, Cats & Street Fairs

Home For the Weekend – Dogs, Cats & Street Fairs

Hi everyone! It's getting so close to Christmas now isn't it? It's definitely time to throw on a festive jumper and dance around to some tunes on Spotify. As a photographer, something I often forget to do is photograph my own family. Part of this is because I want to...

6 Ways You Need To Back Up Your Photos

6 Ways You Need To Back Up Your Photos

As someone who relies on external hard drives for everything, I knew that one day I'd be writing a post like this. At some point, technology fails, and I count myself as super lucky that this is the first time ever I have had a hard drive fail on me. I just plugged it...

Feelin’ Festive

Feelin’ Festive

The run up to Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year, but last year, I started it way too early. I was looking for signs of Christmas in September, was thrilled by the odd bit of tinsel in October, decorated for Christmas early November and by the time...

Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Hello and happy belated Halloween! A friend of mine very kindly got me this huge amazing pumpkin from her family's patch and I needed to do something with it this Halloween. This was pretty fun to make and upload. Halloween isn't usually my thing - I love all the cute...

New Lens + Kit Upgrade

New Lens + Kit Upgrade

Looking at my well-used and 6 year old Canon 6D with a cracked screen and missing the odd dial or two, I realised it was probably the right time to look into updating my photography kit. I always thought that doing so would be completely impossible with my finances,...

‘Whatever After’ Film Stills – Part 1

‘Whatever After’ Film Stills – Part 1

Hello! I't been a little while since I've updated here. I've been involved in a really exciting project over the past month or two as a film stills photographer and I'm happy to be able to share with you the very first part - so here goes. In September I spent 7 days...

Synthesis

Synthesis

I have always felt a connection with nature and flowers, and as I get older I find myself wanting and needing to be around nature more. I love walking down to the river to feed the ducks, and days full of rain and walks outside have such a relaxing and meditative...

What photo equipment do I use? – Summer 18

What photo equipment do I use? – Summer 18

Hi guys! I'm always interested to know what kind of photo equipment people use for their photos - mostly the lens, as I think that's where all the magic really happens. For me my photography totally changed when I was able to use this set up, and it was a fantastic...

Visiting Chessington World of Adventures

Visiting Chessington World of Adventures

When was the last time you visited a theme park? I have to admit, I've been around two times in my life. Rollercoaster rides are really not my thing, but having fun with friends and seeing interesting animals are. I was also rather excited about all those little...

Unintended Consequences | The Photographer’s Playbook

Unintended Consequences | The Photographer’s Playbook

Earlier on this year I was wandering around the Tate Modern looking for new inspiration. I have to say, out of anywhere I've been - the Tate is pretty much the perfect place to be inspired to start a new project. As well as all the wonderful art, my favourite part of...

25 Things I’ve Accomplished by 25

Hey guys! It's great to be back blogging again. How are you? Last week I turned 25 years old, and it seems like a nice round number to have a look back at the things I've done in the past. It's so easy to get caught up in life and forget all the things you have...
