In this blog post I want to talk about printing your own photobooks.
In my opinion being able to reproduce your photographs as prints or even better, as a photobook, is just the most wonderful thing ever. The printed image just seems like a much better way of viewing a photograph to me, something you can hold and touch seems more real than viewing a digital image on a computer screen or tablet.
The problem is that it's expensive to produce a photobook, isn't it?
Well the answer is yes but also definitely NO!
I run a lot of different photography courses but my longest running course is Photoclub Creative. I wanted to do an introduction to this course for those who might be considering joining but know very little about it.
Photoclub Creative is a creative photography course that I run from the pub! The course is run over a 6 month period with the next season about to start in August 2017.Read More

This Saturday I ran a Photowalk in Brighton. It's always great fun running a walk in Brighton, so diverse with lots to see and do.
We met at Cafe Coho near to Brighton train station where we had a quick snack and some good coffee whilst chatting about the format of the day.
Photowalks are pretty informal, a social gathering of people who enjoy photography. I usually try to devise some sort of structure for the day, just for fun and to help kick start the creativity.Read More
Okay I'll admit it, I have a bit of an obsession with camera bags. At least that's what my wife says!
I have quite a few already, mostly messenger or shoulder style bags. I have a lovely bag made by Ona, called the Ona 'Bowery'. This is quite a small bag and is made from waxed canvas. Lovely antique brass hardware and is perfect when I want to take my X-Pro 2 and 2 lenses or 1 lens and a flash. I also have a larger Millican 'Christopher' camera bag that was made with Fuji in mind. A beautifully made canvas bag with brass hardware. I'll be reviewing both of these bags in the near future.
Recently however I have found that a rucksack would be the better bag in certain situations, especially when hiking or just when I need to take my laptop with me.
I have been looking around for a photography rucksack that is a little bit more stylish than the usual.. They do tend to be a bit boring and I wanted something extra. Don't get me wrong, it has to be functional, it can't be style over substance.
I came up with a short list of bags that I was interested in, I really like all of them but there were certain reasons that I selected to order the one I have. These reasons will be things like functionality, cost and the cost to import from outside of the UK.Read More
