Diary - Entry Four

Hey everyone, just thought I’d put out a quick entry in the diary to let you know what I’ve been up to recently and what’s coming up in the near future.

Firstly a little bit of news about another exhibition that is going to feature an image of mine, in fact it should be starting today (at least I’m 99% sure it is). The Glasgow Gallery Of Photography is running a Cityscape Exhibition featuring images of, as you can imagine, cityscape’s and one of my images that I took quite a while ago now is featuring. What I think is even more awesome about this is the fact it was taken on cheap Poundland film using an Olympus Trip. Proof perhaps that the equipment doesn’t matter and it’s all about what you’re shooting not what you’re shooting with? The image has been published before in the second issue of Trip Zine, although as that publication hasn’t been active since April this year on their Instagram and was pretty limited run it’s doubtful many of you will have seen it before. As a little aside, you can now also buy a copy of my Street Photography zine through the Gallery as well as they now have a few copies of it in stock.

Secondly I have done another few live stream’s through my Instagram over the last few weeks, I think they’ve been a bit of a success as quite a few people have gotten involved, asking questions, joining in and I even tried to get my friend Steve over at Steven Prebble Photography jointly streaming with me (it didn’t work but we can always try again). I’ve been doing these things pretty off the cuff with no real script or solid plan of what I want to talk about so I’m open to any suggestions of good topics to discuss if anyone wants to shout out?

My Olympus OM-1 & Yashica D, my standard travel set up whenever I go away for a trip.

And final piece of news, I am going on holiday tomorrow. Specifically to Slovenia and then to Greece for a little under two weeks. I have packed the usual Olympus Om-1 and Yashica D as well as a ton of film so hopefully I’ll have a ton of new images to show in the near future. What it does mean however is that I am going to have limited access to the internet, since I refuse to pay for a grown up phone contract and just leech off Wifi, so I may go dark for a few days. Like I said when I return I should have plenty of new stuff to share and obviously you can keep up to date with me on my Twitter and Instagram feeds as and when I can.

Until next time, Keep Shooting Film Everyone.
