Licence to explore – Orford

Licence to explore – Orford

For the past two years I have created a calendar of my photos. In 2017 I designed a theme for my calendar in the form of Licence to explore and I started the calendar with this piece of writing.  "We all have the licence to explore and as a child I was encouraged to get outdoors and explore the world around me. Maybe it was down by the sea on the Suffolk Coast or and early morning walk round Rendlesham Forest to seek out the wildlife. In the busy world we live today…Read more
Forbidden coast

Forbidden coast

A lot of the Suffolk coast has been a playground for my photography in recent years. I have been all along the coast exploring and capturing the landscape and seascapes. Shingle Street has become one of the places that I will always go back to. I wrote a blog post a few years back about a trip to explore the small hamlet which you can find here. On the small stretch of coast there were a few different opportunities to capture the bleak eeriness of this  beach. Armed with gloves and a hat,…Read more
Constable Country

Constable Country

Constable country is so called from the paintings produced by John Constable along the Suffolk and Essex border. The area around Flatford and Dedham has been a source of inspiration for many artists, photographers and creatives throughout past centuries. As a photographer its somewhere I have been before, but also wanted to go for a sunrise or really early morning just after sunrise. The chance to explore the area at this time of day was great.  Without this becoming an art lesson, the area as I said before has been a source of…Read more
License to Explore!

License to Explore!

Lower Holbrook - Photoblog I have been to Holbrook before, but never knew there was a little hamlet just down the road from the village. Lower Holbrook is set on the River Stour and boasts a great view of the river. The weather wasn't the best for the trip out there.  Jamie and I were ready to 'just go for it'; the last couple of trips out have been very similar with the outlook for the weather and the light being nothing special. There have been a few that have paid off but…Read more
Wow! What a year!

Wow! What a year!

For the past few years I have reviewed my previous twelve months. So here's to another quick post about what I have been up to.  This time last year I was preparing to start my job as a Junior Graphic Designer. It's been a year of learning and gaining loads of knowledge and experience about design and designing for printing. I have gained a lot of confidence in my work and have been able to develop my understanding of design and what I enjoy about the process. Along side that I have been…Read more

Early bird catches the worm! – Photoblog – Shingle Street

I've always been an early bird; (it sort of comes with the territory of being a Finch, haha). Waking up and getting going doesn't really daunt me. I know it can be something people don't look forward to but I have found its a bonus that I can happily get up early and go and capture the sunrise, in various places around Suffolk. As I spoke about in my comeback post, I have been too busy recently. But I have found solace in going around the local area; catching the beauty of the…Read more
Photography Calendar 2017

Photography Calendar 2017

I have been photographing stuff for the last 5 years plus and I have considered selling my photographs as prints. Recently I have been asked multiple times whether I sell my work so after a busy couple of months, I have put together a calendar for 2017 of photographs I have taken this year.  The calendar has 13 unique images all from different locations within Suffolk and these are all current 2016 images. I suppose this has been a long time coming; I have both taken all of the photos and designed the…Read more
Photoblog – Walberswick

Photoblog – Walberswick

Walberswick has a rich history. The small village on the coast of Suffolk has a population of around 380 people. The village itself is right next to the sea, but also boasts a nature reserve and marsh land that is full of wildlife and photo opportunities. I hadn't been to Walberswick before to take photographs. Jamie and I decided to go for a trip out to explore it. One of the images we both wanted to get was of the Old Westwood Marsh Mill. Now decaying and dilapidated, the mill sits proudly above…Read more
Photoblog – Ipswich by Night

Photoblog – Ipswich by Night

Night or Low light photography, is something I'm familiar with. In 2012 when I was studying for my A levels, undertaking some low light and long exposure photography for my coursework. The image below is one I shot back then. It is of St. Mary Le Tower in the centre of Ipswich. I was asked by my friend Andrew if I could give him a few tips on how to take photograph in different situations. The best way to explain it is to actually go and do it. We decided to go for…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
