Earlier this month our Etsy Cambridge team had another pop-up event on the calendar: a mixed shop at the Babylon Gallery in Ely on the 4th and 5th of July. The Sunday would coincide with Ely’s aquafest, and we were all looking forward to enjoying some sunshine on the river and cheering on the brave […]
Monday, May 4th We take our own car to Heathrow, as parking there for 2 weeks turns out to be about the same price as taking the train. No hauling suitcases for us and we arrive well on time. The moment we try to check in, it turns out that I made a stupid little […]
Last weekend Sean was attending a grueling Karate weekend in Scotland, which gave me ample time to visit London, and a couple of exhibitions that I knew he could not be bothered about. I started the day off early to make my way over to Portobello Market before it would get too crowded to see […]
As we slowly mosey on into deeper darker winter, I have started my spring cleaning early. With all of my Etsy shenanigans going on, and two new pop-up / markets events in the pipeline, I decided to clear out some of my photographic gear.

As the weather steadily grows colder and the days shorter, I have entered my winter stop for this year. I know some people may find it silly that I am willing to burn but not freeze – but I’ll remind those people of the accompanying increase of wind and rain within the season. My next […]
Alp was introduced to me through Calvin and later it turned out he is also friends with Wil and Varun. We would take out shoot in the afternoon and lucky for us, the weather was as beautiful as an October day could be, albeit a bit chilly. The only plate that would not come out […]
Just after the last wet plate weekend in the Peak District, I photographed two friends on consecutive days. They both know Calvin (see his shoot here) from their weight lifting club and Calvin had been kind enough to recommend me for a shoot. On the Tuesday, It was Wil Solano. I have to admit […]
Right after the wet plate weekend at Lacock Abbey (see my previous post) I had planned to photograph a Cambridge based model called Hisui. I had found her profile via Purpleport.com and asked her to shoot with me. She agreed and we set our date on the 5th of August. With a day of work […]
