WELCOME TO 'MOMENTS IN MONOCHROME'

MOMENTS OF PATHOS, GOOD HUMOUR & BRITISHNESS


INSIGHTFUL MOMENTS, CAUGHT mostly IN MONOCHROME

Welcome to ‘Moments in Monochrome’……

I‘ve always been both attracted to and beguiled by the visual impact and sense of emotional 'story-telling' that monochrome bestows on its subject, so this site is somewhat dominated by my efforts to capture some of life’s more intriguing moments in black and white imagery.

Since I began my seemingly never ending photographic pilgrimage there's been an explosion of sites providing highly technical equipment reviews. What I offer you here however is a different approach. Here, I share my experiences working on photo and video shoots with whatever gear I am using, and to that end, I write occassional articles about specific cameras and lenses, illustrated with images from working projects - representative of real performance in the real world.

These images have been shot during planned projects designed around a specific theme. There's really no substitute for the challenge of real photographic projects with proper deadlines. Projects add focus and timescales as well as ambitious photographic objectives.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them…….
