Crossing a Personal Void through ignoring ‘Mind The Gap’

Do you have a photograph that becomes a defining moment on a personal level? One that epitomises the breaking of your own rules; forcing you step out of your own shadow?

Scribbles For A New Year

So Long Nikon FM3A – My final Nikon film camera has gone now. The FM3A which I’d owned for several years and which served me faithfully was sold to fund the purchase of a Nikon 24-70 2.8 AF-S for the D3. It went out in all weathers and accompanied me on a trip to Monaco […]
