that popularity thing

Since when did photography become a popularity contest? Well that would be just about the first time a camera was picked up I reckon. If you consider that people are still shooting locations that Ansel Adams shot way back in the 1940s and 50s, or more recently the overnight popularity of drone photography, then I think it’s fair to say that what is popular will always influence the things we photograph. But it’s only due to social media we’ve been able to measure the effect of this in any great detail. I mention this because another form of popularity, followers on social media, has become a hot talking point in photographic circles once again. US photographer Yvette Roman says she missed out on ‘the biggest job of her career’ because she…

it takes a village

One of my most heartfelt experiences as a photographer was capturing this special moment between three monkeys and their infants in Bali last year. My wife and I had ventured to the Sacred Monkey Forest in Ubud which is home to roughly 600 Balinese Long-Tailed Monkeys. Whilst researching the location, I had learnt that infant monkeys spend the first few months of their lives in constant contact with their mothers, rarely leaving their side. I hoped to photograph this precious and finite period of time between the two. I was shooting with the Sony a7II and the Sony FE 70-200 F4 G OSS lens which was ideal for photographing monkeys that were at a close range. The mothers and their infants however, tended to stayed away from humans and the walking paths.…

style guide

While questions about finding your own style may seem like a modern phenomenon, in fact it is an age old issue for all creatives. I have been asked about finding a style since the early 1980’s and my answer then is still very similar today. Be passionate about photography, have a short term and long term plan and be prepared for knocks. A style, your style, will happen naturally and most likely it will change over time. What has changed in the last decade is the sheer number of photographers and the impact of social media on photography. Overnight, a young photographer can post one outstanding image and become world famous - well in a way at least. Yet they may have no depth of work and even little idea of where…
