Another Milestone Reached – 400 Subscribers

February 13th, 2021
I recently surpassed 400 subscribers!

I was absolutely delighted to hit 400 subscribers over on my YouTube channel recently.

Every milestone is a massive encouragement.

As any YouTube creator will tell you, it takes a lot of work to put out good content every week. From planning and researching a video, visiting locations, recording the footage, editing the photos, piecing together the footage, adding additional motion graphics, to uploading the video and promoting it, it certainly keeps me busy!

But I love doing it, and it’s even better when I see people are subscribing to my channel, and my videos are getting views, because then all the hard work has been worth it.

If you’re already subscribed to my channel, many thanks – I really appreciate it. And if you’re not subscribed yet, please consider doing so, to keep up to date with what I’m doing each week. Whether that’s on location somewhere, capturing a sunrise, or at the computer showing you tips and tricks for editing your photos.

Thanks everyone – onwards to 500!

Prints Now Available

If you follow my photography vlog on YouTube, you might have seen one of my recent videos in which I was unboxing a newly acquired Epson XP-970 printer.

I was fairly new to printing my own images at the time, but since the video went out I’ve been doing a ton of research and tests. I’m now set up with some really great papers and accurate ICC profiles for the printer.

So I’m pleased to announce that three of my best images are now available to buy through my website

Amateur Photographer of the Year 2020 Winner

December 23rd, 2020

Earlier this month, Zay Yar Lin was announced as the Amateur Photographer of the Year, 2020. I’m a big fan of his work and he is a very worthy winner.

By day, he works as the Captain of a ship, but manages to find enough time to capture some fantastic images, two of which won rounds in this year’s APOY competition. He was announced overall winner with 77pts, just above Tony North in second place with 66pts.
