I studied film and photography at University and I am always taking photos when images inspire me, from the art work I do with children, to food to nature. I love using a mixture of a Canon EOS, a smaller Lumix DX, and my trusty i-phone where I do use Instagram a lot. However, they have stopped the film/disintegrated frame facility recently on their latest upgrade, and I really miss it. It is a bit of a cheat, but it reminds me of the days when it was easy to get real film processed and hunt through negatives and contact sheets.
I follow a lot of current photographers work, and am a huge fan of Nick Knight‘s fashion photography and also his instagram account http://instagram.com/showstudio_nick_knight. His flower photos are just amazing. I also love Javier Vallhonrat’s work as he creates superb lighting, Garry Winogrand for his documentary photos and Ansel Adams just for his clouds & printing!
I run children’s art and photography classes for 4-11 year olds, and they create awe-inspiring work. Here are some examples of projects I have taught the children:
I love looking upwards, especially in cities. You can see great details that get a bit forgotton sometimes:
