By Request

I was going to write “by popular demand” but I didn’t think one email would justify such language. But I did get one request so that is a good enough excuse so I am hereby posting the “evil” Gary Byrne

75/365 Gary Byrne

Sometimes being a geezer and a photographer is tough. As a photographer I think this guy is really good looking but as a geezer it just isn’t something I would openly admit. Such is life. Mr Byrne came to ARTS

68/365 Watching

Yes this is late. It was shot at about 11:00pm last night and processed immeditaely. At the time of the shoot my right eye was streaming tears. With every flash it was like a needle poking around in my eye.

33/365 Tomas in Fog

I wanted to test the new noise reduction capabilities of Lightroom 3.2 and this was partly for that purpose. Shot at 1600 iso then processed first in Lightroom and then in Photoshop. The NR is amazing. Truly amazing. In other

32/365 Tomas and Max

This was an experiment. The main idea was to shoot the scene as a pano that when stitched together would have some interesting distortions. I had made a few panos today just to see if I was on the right

28/365 Here’s Looking At Me

Well what can I say? No client shoots today. Got some bookings but currently all after Easter. Some interesting ones in East Grinstead and Forest Row and another in Turners Hill. So lots more marketing to do. That is becoming

Jasmine has left. She was a great model. I’m having to resort to using myself again. Too bad eh? Anyway back from London now sitting near East Grinstead.  Good to be able to work with a decent monitor again and

Jasmine is back. This was one of those times when the idea came in a flash, the setup took about 5 minutes, the shoot took less than 5 minutes and the processing took two hours. For those who might not

17/365 Drink Deep My Friend

No prizes for guessing the inspiration behind this. I had planned a completely different concept with two or even three models but one of them dropped out at the last moment and I had to come up with something quick.

15/365 Chandleresque

Okay so what’s the story with this? Well I had several opportunities to make pictures today but I decided to “leave it till later” when I thought my best opportunity would come. So of course it turned out that wasn’t

9/365 You’re Never Alone With A Shadow

I’ve been meaning to shoot with Lee for a while. He can be a hero or a villain with ease and I had this particular image in mind for a few weeks but we hadn’t managed to get together to

Pepper Spray Anyone?

Two great friends Ann and Farouk (see their site here) agreed to act out one of my darker fantasies on Sunday night. I had several shots in mind but the weather (at least -50 in London) put paid to that

I’m liking the idea of pictures that look like scenes from movies. This is the first in what I expect may become a long series. If you’d like to appear or assist in one use the contact page to let
