Close Up Lego Photography

Whilst some of the Stuck In Plastic weekly themes can be quite a challenge – for example creating an album cover – others are a little bit easier. And that was the case for the recent “Close-Up” week. Although I have taken a few lego figures in the environment style shots most of my recent… Read More

We Come In Peace….

The Stuck In Plastic Weekly Lego Challenges are great fun but occasionally the themes don’t always appeal or require a little bit more thought. One of the last themes for January was ‘Science Fiction’ which whilst encompassing a wide range of possible subjects (e.g. Star Wars, Doctor Who, Aliens etc) instantly filled me with dread….

One Is The Loneliest Number

During 2021 I discovered a group of toy and lego photographers on Discord. Each week the organisers of the channel picked one theme and invited users to participate in a challenge to produce 1 to 3 images on that theme. The themes vary from using techniques such as long exposure, styles like film noir and… Read More

A 2022 Blog Update – Sports Photography!

OK where did 2021 go to? After spending a fair amount of time getting things in order on this blog I then went and abandoned it for what must be the umpteenth year on the trot. However the good news is that I have been taking photos over the last 12 months or so. Wildlife… Read More

Red Foxes Of Zandvoort

Over the last few years I’ve done a number of wildlife photography trips mostly with the same company. For the most part they’ve been good and without any issues. However the last two trips I did with the company were not so great and therefore this one, Red Foxes Of The Netherlands, was to be… Read More

Faceless Portraits Using Rimlights

For 2020 Llanelli Photographic Society are running a series of monthly challenges. At the start of each month we receive four subjects and the challenge is to produce a photo during the month that fits each theme. This approach is much easier than a weekly challenge – as we had last year – as it… Read More

Richmond Park Deer Rut

Back in 2016 I attended a two day Deer Rut photography trip. It was most certainly one of the most eventful of trips! Firstly it bucketed down for most of the trip and my camera died after getting drenched. I also ended up following the wrong person in a car convoy which was fun. However,… Read More

White Horses Of Camargue

Ever since I first saw a picture of the White Horses Of Camargue I knew I wanted to photograph them. What I didn’t quite prepare myself for was how you photograph these wonderful animals. Just over 12 months ago I found myself stood in a French bog, wearing waders, about a foot deep in water,… Read More

Snow At Rhossili 2019

Snow finally hit South Wales on the 1st February and it’s law that you must go out with a camera. Now I’m not hardcore like those who camped out on Pen-y-Fan or who trudge miles through the snow. Instead it’s a nice warm car and head out onto Gower. Our first stop was Cefn Bryn… Read More

Why Do You Photograph Lego?

Ok so it’s been a while since I blogged. I had hoped to be a lot more prolific in 2018 and was full of intent to get back in the swing of things as 2019 started. Anyway, the plan is to get writing and uploading photos on a much more regular basis. I now have… Read More
