Leave The Photo Gear Behind And Just Shoot Some Photographs

Leave The Photo Gear Behind And Just Shoot Some Photographs

Sometimes you just need to leave everything you know behind (including all that heavy photography gear) and just shot some photos. No assistant, no flash and no tripod. Just you, the camera and a high ISO.

Eerie Talking Street Lamp Posts At The Old Market In Hove

Eerie Talking Street Lamp Posts At The Old Market In Hove

Brighton & Hove are well known for being creative and arty seaside locations on the south coast of England. I love the streets and it's people, having covered many photo assignments there, I really thought I had seen it all. That was until one night last week when I discovered the Talking Lamp Posts!

The Dogs Of East Preston Village Dog Show by Photographer Scott Ramsey

The East Preston annual fun novelty dog show was held on the last day of the village festival week. This year it seemed like the entire village attended with their dogs with nearly every breed represented. I had the idea to attend and create some doggy portrait photographs. 

Dunkirk Evacuation Operation Dynamo 75th Anniversary In Ramsgate Kent

Dunkirk Evacuation Operation Dynamo 75th Anniversary In Ramsgate Kent

The Kent town of Ramsgate commemorated the 75th Anniversary of the Dunkirk evacuation, code-named Operation Dynamo, recently with a weekend of war time themed events. A Spitfire gave a fly past, bands played and 1940s music filled the air as visitors mixed with historical re-enactors dressed as WW2 soldiers along the quayside. However the highlight of the weekend for me and the reason I was attending with my cameras was to photograph the returning Dunkirk Little Ships.

VE Day 70th Anniversary - Residents In Southsea Portsmouth Recreate A VE Day Street Party To Remember

The 8th of May 2015 marked the 70th Anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) and the end of the second world war in Europe. Many of the services and events were held in London, however local communities were also encouraged to take part. Remembering the old black and white photographs taken at the time I wanted to document a community street party for myself and so I headed along the coast to Portsmouth in Hampshire to see if I could find one.

Worthing Pier An Experiment With Timelapse Photography And Sound

I have always lived near the sea and whenever possible I grab my camera and head down to the beach to clear my head and take some photos. In Worthing there's a pier which I have photographed many times before however recently I wanted to try something different. I not only wanted to capture the look of the pier but I also wanted to record the sounds……

Saltdean Lido A Derelict Art Deco 1930's Lido in East Sussex

Saltdean Lido A Derelict Art Deco 1930's Lido in East Sussex

Built in the late 1930's, Saltdean Lido looks rather unloved and sorry for it's self as you catch a glimpse of it whilst traveling along the A259 coast road in East Sussex, UK. This derelict art deco Lido has been closed for several years with only local seagulls able to enjoy the open air swimming pool. Once a must go to place for holiday makers during the golden age of the 1930's over 160 Lido's where built across the UK.

Ferry Night Crossing

Ferry Night Crossing

Late winter 2014 and after a photography shoot on the Isle Of Wight I grabbed my cameras and went top side of the Wightlink Ferry as it left the small village of Fishbourne. The light was fading fast and with night drawing in the other passengers soon settled down inside the large cabin with their warm cappuccinos. They must have thought me mad as I explored the deck of the ship stopping every now and again to take my photos
