I am in the middle of a very busy time Photography wise so this post will be short and sweet.

It’s a busy time in Liverpool with lots of events one after another, so my time as an event photographer is booked up solid, so the blog posts I intended to write this month are all going to be pushed back to later in the year.

I have always used filters in my photography right back at the start with my film days, playing around with all the effects filters from star burst to tobacco filters and all the range of NDs.

I have put them all to great use over the years but lately just used them for long exposure shots in Landscape etc

I am starting a new project next year that is going to make great use of the skills I have learned over the years with different filters, I am not going to give to much away but it’s going to be a different approach to my favorite subject.

I will be using Formatt Hitech Filters for all my filter work, so this seems like a good time to announce to every one that does not know, I am now a Formatt Hitech Featured Artist so you will be able to find my project work next year on the Formatt Hitech web site as well as my My Web Site.

I can’t wait to get started on the 1st of January 2015.  I am bursting with ideas and excitement, Hitech have some great new filters out this year that are going to give some great long exposure times, so I will need to get some practice in before I start my project.

I will leave you with a couple of images from the Liverpool Giant Spectacular that is just about to start in Liverpool this weekend.

I have been working on a series of photography workshops to be rolled out over 2014 /2015.

I have been in talks with a couple of the North West’s best photographic shops so will be running workshops and courses for these guys from their shops as well as my own workshops. Once I have the full program of events I will be able to publish the full course calendar.

I do have a photo walk planned for the 14th of June in Liverpool; you can sign up for this walk here tickets are only £19.99 please book early to avoid disappointment.

I will also be running a street photography workshop on Sunday the 29th of June 2014 from a Liverpool location. The course will give you an insight into the way I work and my style of Street Photography. You will learn how to anticipate and capture that decisive moment at various locations around the city.

Through demonstration and example and through your own photography practice of a variety of creative street photography techniques, you will have the opportunity to explore the Liverpool streets picking up tips and ideas that you will be able to try at home and other world destinations.

You will learn

  • The skill in spotting a possible subject
  • What  to look for in a great scene
  • How to blend in and be invisible.
  • See and compose a subject with a scene or background
  • Capture a subject without intrusion
  • Develop confidence in shooting in the street
  • Photography in public places safely
  • Use different depths of field for different types of shot
  • Use varying speeds for different effects
  • How to review your own work
