The River Great Ouse

The dark inky waters of the River Great Ouse flow by, such a cliché, but in this case, it happens to be true. Small clumps of broken reeds move past, making their way on the soft flow, bobbing on the gentle undulations of the water. Mosquitoes dart around while under the surface of the water fish, make small rings that expand outwards as they try to catch the flitting insects. Here, next to the sluice, it is quiet. Not so much quiet but all...

Trials and Tribulations

It is now 4 months since I decided to become a photographer that earns a living from taking photographs. Why the phrase professional photographer is so difficult to use I do not know. I think it is because I dont consider myself a proffesional photographer yet. What they don't tell you about all this, although some allude to it, is the work that goes on behind the scenes. Not just taking images and hoping but getting your name out there in...
