Blue Supermoon
30th August 2023

If you have explored this blog, you may have encountered a few posts about photographing a supermoon. Like the Blood Wolf Moon or the Pink one. Even a recording of a Clubhouse talk among passionate moon-chasers. There is a lot I like about photographing a supermoon. From the excitement of waiting for the day to come to the hours spent to find and scout a location, determine a good alignment, wait for...

Manchester Punks 1980 with Midjourney AI, by @fabienb.ai
20th April 2023

So I went to see my grandparents during Easter to help them tidy up the garage. As it happens, we found a shoebox full of old photos, which made for an entertaining trip down memory lane ;) A large document of the punk life in Manchester, UK, in the 1980s… This is how the story of this series of images could be told. In reality, I created the Manchester Punks series with...

full time Fujifilm photographer
14th January 2021

Why I shoot with Fujifilm cameras and how I decided to be a full-time Fujifilm photographer are the two questions people ask me most frequently. As I’m spending more time in the studio now, because of the lockdown, this is a chance for another talking head video and time to answer these recurring questions. It was probably always in the cards, as Fujifilm has been with me since the beginning. But it’s...

London lockdown photography | In Pictures
5th November 2020

London lockdown, again… England is entering its second national lockdown phase today as Coronavirus/Covid-19 cases have risen sharply. This gives me the opportunity to finally present my London lockdown photography project on YouTube. Back when I took the photos, I wasn’t producing content for my channel yet. So, unfortunately, I didn’t film my usual POV footage. But I did document the empty streets of London in these eerie images. I wasn’t too...

Black Lives Matter protests in London
26th June 2020

A lot has already been said about the recent events that forced everybody to take to the streets and support the Black Lives Matter movement. Myself, I have fought racism at every chance in my everyday life. Even as a young Designer, my first feature in a prestigious book was for an anti-racism poster I designed. It’s not even something I think about; it’s just who I am. And it’s due to...

Fujifilm X-T1 black
23rd April 2020

I'm often asked why I shoot Fujifilm, rather than maybe follow the latest trends on YouTube and go with Sony or any big DSLR... Trust is, it happened by chance. Here's how.

Oxford street photo walk | panning
25th February 2020

Writing Oxford street might be a bit of a clickbait if you were looking for photos in London. But this is about street photography in Oxford, so… Anyway, here I am talking about another photowalk I attended.It’s always great to go out, meet and shoot with like-minded individuals. I also often meet up with new groups. I love to connect with as many people as possible, hear new stories and learn something...

warm sunset over West London
21st June 2019

I often get my best results when I follow my gut feelings rather than plan for something. This story is a good testament to that. Since I returned from beautiful Georgia (more on that in a future post), the weather in London has been pretty grim and depressing. It rained almost every day, and it was generally cold and grey most of the time. This day was no exception. And frankly, there...

Instagram logo on display
7th March 2019

The other day, I saw somebody I follow on Instagram celebrating their “instaversary” (or however you name it). And it made me think about how I started on the platform myself. I’m a sort of compulsive early adopter when it comes to apps. I get very excited about everything new that seems novel and disruptive enough. And so, I jumped on board the Instagram train very early. Some background It was 2009....
