I leave photography for a brief moment..

My other passion is being a fan of Newcastle United. (A “soccer” team for those in the colonies.

This is my thoughts from yesterday

Went to my first Newcastle away game in ages (going to Stadium of Shite, our arch rivals Sunderlands home ground, doesn’t count). Had a great time in Preston as the memories came flooding back. No knee room in back of car, eating your sarnies by 11:30, making your carry on bottles last, parking a mile away from ground for that “beat the traffic getaway” – and the 15 min walk back as the driver and other passengers walk like those Olympic blokes with the funny action. Only sitting down for half time, putting up with the pissheads who can’t be arsed to check their tickets and just barge into a row and stand there, secretly puffing on a stinking e cig.

But…. Still that terrific feeling when (against the odds) your psycho forward scores two goals in 10 minutes and, in spite of 9 minutes added time you hang on for the win!!! If Carling did away games….
Oh…did I mention – hearing the Mackems lose 4-1 at home!!

(I only had 2 bottles and a twix left for the journey home).
May be a while before my next one…..


I’m surprising myself..

I remember I have this blog thing! 

I had another photoshoot this week. It’s a brilliant model called Sway (obviously not her real name..but she’s a model). I worked with her before but that was on location. This shoot was in a studio (Ivy Studio in Newcastle. I can highly recommend. Good rates, nice owner and good facilities) https://m.facebook.com/IvyStudioNE4/?locale2=en_GB

The shoot was a bit of a varied one. Sway is massively into Japanese art and culture so we shot some Seifuku based stuff then Carried on using storage rooms etc (I love shooting in unusual parts of a building ) to do some harnessed lingerie etc. These images are a flavour for now. I will put up a fuller set when editing done. If I remember.

Blog to follow..

I normally let people take their own path as to what to follow,read look at etc. 

But if I may take a minute to check this guy out. Yes, he’s a good friend of mine. But, without him I wouldn’t be doing the photography I do now. That’s model stuff and street photography. 

He has an interesting outlook on life (he’s also one of the best photographers I know -but this is his general musings sometimes funny always interesting 


Latest Photoshoot

Paris Jones is a lovely young lady from Newcastle. She works hard during the day and goes to college on an evening to help her achieve her aim of being an actress/model. She also is extremely fashion conscious with a great way with make up. Anyway we hooked up for what was only her second photoshoot. These are some of the results. 

Sorry…I’m a bad blogger 

I don’t post much….blame that Facebook, Twitter media thingys…they suck your life. 

Anyway –


Sold all my Nikon stuff (D800, lenses) and exchanged it for a Fuji X-T2. It adds to my lil X-T10 and its lenses. 

Still doing shoots – model and street. I even took some landscape stuff to test the new camera. 

These, in no specific order are some examples.
