A blog about photography from

One of my favourite places in the world is Lundy island, a 3-mile long lump of granite in the Bristol channel just off the Devon coast. It’s not a place many people have heard of, yet alone visited, but I’ve been fortunate to have been there three times now.

My most recent visit was earlier this year, with my family. We stayed in one of the restored Landmark Trust buildings there – Government House – which has an amazing view. One of the best things about Lundy Island is that there is very little to do there, which means that little things like sitting and watching the sea become simple pleasures.

I took a couple of small Fuji mirrorless cameras with me, and really enjoyed photographing the island. I usually struggle with beautiful landscapes – I prefer run-down urban decay – but in this case I think my relaxed state of mind helped my photography.

Vive la film!

It’s a good time to be a film photographer. A few weeks ago, Kodak announced they’re bringing Ektachrome back from the grave and are looking into doing the same with Kodachrome. Then we have a brand new black & white ISO 400 film from Bergger, which uses both silver bromide and iodide for extra dynamic range and is available in lots of different formats.

I like film photography, and still keep a handful of film cameras on the go.

Dr Sophie Read

I’ve been photographing female fellows at Christ’s College, Cambridge, for a couple of years now, and Dr Sophie Read was my last commission in the series. It’s been a massive honour to shoot this set of pictures – fascinating people in wonderful surroundings. What’s not to like?
