The Frank Hurley portrait I wished I’d taken.

At the last MiniClick along with nine other photographers I gave a five minute talk on a portrait I wished I’d taken. The format was that each speaker had five minutes and were only allowed to show the image they were talking about. For a little more context, I thought I would show some of the other images I referred to in my talk in this blog post. MiniClick has a blog post where you can see see the list of the photographers that were speaking with an example of there work plus the photo they were talking about here. After talking to some of the other speakers I found that I was in a minority in that no portrait had immediately sprung to mind for me like it had for them. After some thought I decided to talk about Frank Hurley’s 1915 portrait of John Vincent, The Bosun of the ship the Endurance.

The portrait theme was due to MiniClick launching their second publication which theme is portraiture. You grab a copy here but hurry it’s a limited edition of 200!

Paris Samsung NX speed event

A few weeks ago I was in Paris for the Samsung NX speed event. I was there following some Facebook voting after a similar event I attended in the UK. I’d just like to say thanks for all the people that voted for me, without your votes I would not have been there! It was a fun filled three days where we got see Usain Bolt sprint and DJ, check out racing at Le Mans and see the sights of Paris (check out the photos below). As well as all the Parisian fun we also got the chance to see some of Samsung’s new camera products which you can read about here. All the photos below were taken on a Samsung NX300 (read my NX300 review).

Talk at PhotoForum in London on Thursday (14th March)

On Thursday 14th of March I’m giving a talk about my work at PhotoForum in London. PhotoForum is a free monthly photography talk with each of the events featuring two speakers. Speaking on the same night as myself will be photo journalist Mimi Mollica. I have spoken about my work in various places like: Book shops in San francisco, Google’s headquarters in California, galleries in Germany, Wales & Leeds, BLAB in Manchester, various Universities and of course the mighty MiniCLick! Until now I have not spoken in London, so it feels like quite a special event for me.

Watch my BLAB online

Last month I did a little northern tour; I spoke at BLAB in Manchester and then at the White Cloth gallery for Exposure Leeds the following night. Both nights I spoke about my work and the Manchester talk is now online. If you are ever up that neck of the woods I strongly recommend you check out BLAB if it’s on and that you check out the White Cloth gallery in Leeds too. I’d like to thank Exposure Leeds and BLAB for bringing me up there and all the people that came to both events.

Phoot Camp coming to Brighton with an exhibition and talk

As part of the Brighton Photo Fringe Festival MiniClick is bringing a slice of Phoot Camp to Brighton in the form of an exhibition and talk. Phoot Camp is an invite-only photography retreat where photographers get together for a few days and create new work. It’s been held in San Francisco, LA, Marfa (Texas) and upstate New York. I have been lucky enough to attend three of the four camps. I have met some amazingly creative people at Phoot so I am really proud to bring a little slice of the camp to Brighton for the Photo Fringe.
