Still playing catch-up with the backlog of films! This trip to Gloucester took place weeks ago but I’m extremely pleased with the photography. Many large churches and cathedrals don’t allow tripods so I’m forced to shoot handheld and to use fast Delta 3200 film, which brings its own set of limitations. Gloucester cathedral is welcoming […]Read more "Gloucester cathedral"
It’s been weeks since I visited Hereford and these pictures have been waiting in my queue to be reviewed and published. I’ve finally found the time to have a look, and I’m pleased with the results. These shots of the cathedral were all taken with my Mamiya M645, mostly with the ultra-wide 35mm f/3.5 lens. […]Read more "Hereford cathedral"

I’ve wanted to try using my large format camera indoors for a while now, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity to capture the peaceful interior of a cathedral. I used my Horseman 45HD camera with Schneider-Kreuznach Super-Angulon 65mm f/8 lens, which really is extremely wide angle on the […]Read more "Bristol cathedral"
I had a busy bank holiday weekend. I travelled around and shot three rolls and two sheets of film. I’ll try and break these photos down into distinct events. First there were a couple of test shots using my new Canon FD 200mm f/2.8 lens. The cranes stand in Bristol’s floating harbour and the other view […]Read more "Busy bank holiday"
Regular readers of this blog will know that I enjoy photographing the interiors and exteriors of churches and cathedrals. Bristol Cathedral, just a couple of minutes walk away from my office, is conspicuously absent from my list so far. Last week I decided to take a lunchtime walk around the cathedral as the sun was […]Read more "Bristol Cathedral"
At the weekend I visited Liverpool with a few friends. It’s the first time I’d been and for the mostpart we hung around the two cathedrals – Liverpool Cathedral (Anglican) and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral (Catholic). The weather was ideal. Contrary to popular belief, clear blue skies are not great for (most) photography because the sky […]Read more "Liverpool"
Yesterday Hannah and I spent the day in Tewkesbury. She was singing at choral Evensong at Tewkesbury Abbey and was in rehearsal for most of the day, so I spent a few hours walking around armed with a pair of cameras and a bag of lenses. I’ve only finished one of the two films, which is exclusively […]Read more "Tewkesbury Abbey interior"
