Street Photography Workshop

At the start of the month I attended a street photography workshop that was being run by Jessops and Panasonic, I’m going to count it as being able to cross off my resolutions list as attending a photo meet up as essentially that’s what it was, a load of camera geeks in a room talking shop and playing with toys before heading out and using them in the real world. The workshop was taken by Damien Demolder, who was excellent, the right level of fun and informative you need from such a situation. (more…)

UK Photography Show 2016: Part One

So I went to the UK Photography Show in the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham yesterday, as I did last year as well. The main reason I go is to grab as many freebies as possible and to play with equipment I have no hope of ever having enough money to afford, check a big win on both of those counts. Firstly getting to use the new Fuji X-Pro 2 for the whole day was pretty cool, all I had to do was turn up early enough fill in a form and hand over my I.D. and it was mine for the day. Secondly getting to play around with some expensive equipment, Leica, Hassleblad and Sony A7’s for example. And thirdly, and best of all, getting a ton of free stuff from Olympus after seemingly making an impression on them with my OM-1 and having a private session with the new Pen F, in exchange for letting them film me talk about why I use Olympus for street photography and how their sensor and lens cleaning service they had going on there was so good. I’ve said it before and I will say it yet again, I am an Olympus fan boy through and through, this has cemented it even more.

Anyway’s I took a few shot’s at the show as well, enough to split in to two separate post’s so below is the first set and there’ll be another set to follow soon. All These were taken on my Olympus OM-D EM-5 (well it would be rude not to after how nice they were) with Panasonic Leica Summilux 25mm lens. Enjoy
