Colin McRae World Rally Champion – 25 Years On

[22nd November 2020] You don’t need Doctor Who’s Tardis to go back to Wednesday 22nd November 1995, the day that Colin McRae (and co-driver Derek Ringer) became Britain’s first World Rally Champions after an epic trouncing of Subaru teammates Carlos Sainz and Luis Moya from Spain. I have raided my archives to bring you a…

My Year In Cameras

[7th August 2020] OK, so I get through a lot of cameras and lenses! Really though, no matter how long I try a camera system at a photographic dealer or photography show, the only way to find out if it works for me is to own it for a while. A broad knowledge of several…

Photographing A Car Rally With A £40 Camera

[10th March 2020] First launched in August 2006, the Canon EOS 400D is a digital SLR (DSLR) camera with a 10.1 megapixel CMOS APS-C sensor. Paired with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6 L IS USM lens, I took the Canon EOS 400D camera to the recent Snowman Rally, ultimately what turned out to be the only round…

FujiFilm X-T1 Revisited

[26th February 2020] On the day of the FujiFilm X-T4 launch I am revisiting the pioneer of the Fuji X-T line, the X-T1. Announced in January 2014 the X-T1 was the first FujiFilm interchangeable lens mirrorless camera to adopt single lens reflex (SLR) styling with a central viewfinder and a ‘faux’ pentaprism. Indeed it was…

Why The FujiFilm GFX (50R) Didn’t Work For Me

[20th February 2020] The FujiFilm GFX 50 system has been on my radar since its official launch in February 2017. The idea of a 51.4 megapixel medium-format (ish) was hugely appealing to a landscape photographer but the combination of the price (£6199 at launch) and the small range of lenses was enough to prevent the…

FujiFilm X-E1 – The Best Digital Camera Under £150

[1st November 2019] In these days of 100 megapixel monsters costing from £9999 to way north of £50000 I’m going to extol the virtues of the 16MP FujiFilm X-E1 that can be purchased for well under £150. Launched in September 2012, the X-E1 shares the original X-Trans CMOS sensor with the X-Pro 1 producing fabulous…

BTCC Knockhill 2019

[16th September 2019] The British Touring Car Championship’s annual visit north of the border to Knockhill provided plenty of close racing with the title battle thrown wide-open after leader Colin Turkington’s best result was a single 4th place. Race 1 featured a popular victory for home hero Rory Butcher (Honda Civic Type R FK2) who…

Featured in Amateur Photographer Magazine

[24th April 2019] I am really pleased to be featured in the latest Amateur Photographer magazine (dated 27th April 2019). My image of the Northern Lights over the Isle of Skye is used alongside my thoughts on the FujiFilm X-Pro 1 camera in the second-hand classic feature. The magazine is now available in shops if…
