Almost three months ago Heather Champ (friend and Champion of all things community and photography on the web) launched a new photo related weekly email called Favorites. The premise is simple: it’s so easy to miss great photography that’s posted to different social media platforms, after a few hours great images will get lost in all the noise of selfys and food photos.
Favorites asks people to email them one image a week, and from all the received submissions they send an email every Sunday with a curated selection of the best images to people that have signed up. At the moment it has a handful of contributors but the quality of images that reaches your inbox is great. You can subscribe to Favorites here and find out how to submit your photography here.
Below are a few photos and photographers I have discovered though Favorites.
Below are the three Photographic publications I have purchased. I should buy more photographic books but rest assured when I do purchase a photo book / zine it’s always of the highest quality.
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.
I recently spent the weekend with a film crew from O2’s Guru YouTube channel. They are making a set of films about different creative people and how mobile technology fits into there life. I am the second person they shot, the first was trainer designer / customizer Daniel Reese, check out his film here. They filmed me as I documented an average weekend in Brighton which culminating in me putting up a photo montage on a beach hut. If what goes on on the video looks fun to you, you might want to check out one of my weekend photography courses so you can join the fun.
The London Photography Festival (LPF) opened this week (1st of June) with multiple exhibitions across the Kings Cross area of London. I was luckily invited to the pre-launch day and launch party. I did not get to see all the shows as they are not all open yet but what I did see was really interesting. I have written a little about some of the shows below. It’s not intended to be a must see list of exhibitions from the festival as I would definitely recommend taking a day checking out all the work as most of the venues are walking distance from each other. The festival runs from June 1st – June 30th. All the info on the exhibitions, talks and workshops can be found on the LPF website.
I wrote about Lytro being set up a while ago but last week they announced there product line up and specs of there forth coming cameras. Lytro is a company that is bringing cameras to market that uses a technology called “light field photography”. The cameras capture light in a different way to a normal camera, as if by magic once a photo is taken the focus can be changed.

Two years ago I posted my first blog post on lomokev.com, at the time I was worried that I would not have enough to write about but I have managed to post a blog post every eight and a bit days, not bad me thinks!
I have such a small amount of time these days that I find it hard to write everything I want to write about. I actually have 18 posts I currently want to write on some of the following subjects: Continue reading
