Stopping the Presses! – The end of The Independent in Print

Stopping the Presses! – The end of The Independent in Print

Last weekend saw the end of an era. The Independent on Sunday saw its last print run after 26 years. This weekend saw the Independent stop their presses and move online after 30 years of printing. Over the years newspapers have come and gone. News of the World saw a similar fate back in 2011, after a phone hacking scandal. When it comes to news, over the past few years, the new media has been at the forefront; being able to supply current news stories as soon as it happens. When it comes…Read more
Photoblog – Dunwich

Photoblog – Dunwich

I have a feeling this one is going to be a short one.The small village of Dunwich in Suffolk; is often known as the British atlantis. When a storm hit in the 1300's, the main town was washed into the sea. The village only has around 120 residents; a fraction of the population when it was a town. I had never been to Dunwich. But it just so happened I managed to recently on a weekend when the weather wasn't the best for photography. The chance to explore a new place is always…Read more

What’s on the Menu? – Byron

As many designers and creatives know switching off the analytical side of their brain is often not easy when they are out and about. Going into a restaurant is often the most rewarding of trips as it will open up a whole new place for debate and criticism. Loved ones and friends may notice that they are taking more time over the choices on the menu. Something that can seem mundane and slightly boring to the people around them. The chance to look at a menu and the graphics surrounding the restaurant can…Read more

Photoblog – Streets of London

London is one of the places I always like to visit. It's a place full of culture and history. The streets of London hold a lot of this as you travel around. We went for a little reunion trip to just meet up and see how we are all getting on. The day included visiting Covent Garden; the Bank Area; the British Museum; Chinatown and finishing off with a trip to the theatre, to see Les Miserables at the Queens Theatre. Back to the photography! The capital has many opportunities for a photographer…Read more

Photoblog: Iken Cliffs

Over the years I have been to Iken Cliffs many times, for family days out and D of E practice walks . It's situated around 4 miles West of Aldeburgh, Suffolk along the banks of the River Alde. There are a few areas to walk to and from Iken, with Snape Malting's within 30 minutes walking distance. Along the river there is a church called St Botolph, Iken. A small church with a thatched roof dating back to before 1200. Jamie and I decided we would go out for a photography trip as…Read more

Shed Graphics — Collection

Shed Graphics — Collection

In the summer we spent the day cleaning out the shed. It led to a photographic exploration of the different graphics that are from many different eras in time. It's odd to think that one place can hold so many different graphics, as a student exploring graphics in different ways was always helpful. A sheds purpose can be so diverse the graphics can mirror that same sentiment.  A shed can be a time capsule, is holds a lot of history. I found this an interesting piece of research, and felt that I would document it here.…Read more
