India 2013 by Bicycle

Just returned yesterday to Brighton from 5 weeks cycling along the coast of Kerala in Southern India. It was just me and Christine, our trusty Thorn Bicycles and my brilliant Panasonic Lumix GH2.

An amazing journey, outrageously hot and humid and fabulously friendly people. Here are just a few shots to give you a taste.

Now back to lots of new photo commissions, studio portraits and some really exciting times ahead.

France Cycling RnR

I decided to to take a break from being a photographer and so just spent the best part of June cycling through France with Christine, from the north coast at St Malo to Bergerac in the Dordogne – about 1200km of eating Goat’s cheese, bread and flies, and camping by rivers. Countless mosquito bites, coffees and beautiful countryside. It was fab to be away in the fresh air without always looking at my watch and rushing around, and getting some serious miles in my legs…..

Hey! And the French were lovely even though my French is more School-Infant than School-Boy.

I took my excellent little Lumix GH2 with the 14mm and 20 mm lenses – nice and light and great quality.

Now back in Brighton to tons of photography work the next couple of months with some great portraits, headshot work and commercial jobs booked in. Already my tan is fading!

Berlin – Photography

Just had a great week in one of my favourite cities, Berlin, which was in the throngs of a superb heatwave. My visit coincided with Mayday – and the famous Kreuzberg ‘anti-everything/smash the system Demo’ – hardcore! Berlin’s such a vibrant, full-on place and as a photographer from little-old Brighton I always love just wandering the streets, snapping away.

The first photo is of the start of the Kreuzberg Demo

Brighton Landscape Photography – April Shower

Just met a client and on the way back via Ditchling Beacon I couldn’t resist a photo of this rain cloud. I have definitely got a thing for clouds. Sat there for a while with a large pack of Quavers…..

More Brighton BT Box Photography

Strangely, one of my fave BT box art in Brighton was overpainted by the same artist who did the original one. Maybe he got bored with the first version, which I actually prefer to this one.

Odd as there are so many BT boxes to paint. He is a photo taken today.

And the original photo is HERE
