A Talk and LifeFramer

Monday 15th January got 2018 off to a reasonably good start.  

Talk

I gave my first ever talk about photography to Guildford Photographic Society.  Many thanks to David and all at GPS for being so welcoming, and listening to me 'rant' about engagement.  The idea behind the talk is my personal journey to identify what I want to achieve to engage a viewer in my documentary work.   I find that many images whilst they may be 'nice' fail to do this (may its just me!!).   The shot below is the closing image and one from my Viewers series an extract of which won DPOTY2015.

That day I also got the good news that I was a winner in the 'An Instant' competition on LifeFramer.  LifeFramer (https://www.life-framer.com) is one of two platform sites (the other being LensCulture) that I pan to use to try and get my work out to a wider audience.  I know there is a cost, but in the great scheme of things it works out to less than one coffee per week. To be honest, I've lost faith with Flickr. I prefer to use platforms that have some degree of curation, so that images do not get lost in a sea of....

 

So, my intent going forward is to maintain this website, and to keep up to date projects on LifeFramer and LensCulture and then use Instagram for regular updates.  Feel free to follow.
