If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my time in the UK is that if the sun peeks out of the clouds for one day, everyone will run out in shorts and flip-flops and sit at the beach having beer or sunbathe in parks. I decided to do something different take my 5D Mark III out for a city-spin. It’s mostly my work, filming and studio camera, so I’ve been using a half-decent Lumix for snapshots, but […]
Guess who got a new film camera. Yes, this crazy girl. I am so absolutely in love with the Minolta X300. I’ve always heard wonders of Minolta lenses, but not owning one of their cameras I couldn’t really try. Luckily the owner of my local Kodak retailer has taken a liking to me and set this particular baby aside for when I received my allowance as he’d seen hearts pour out of my eyes as I tested […]

Do I miss my boyfriend? Absolutely. But it's nice here. Actually, it's pretty damn gorgeous, and I'm going to enjoy my time here as much as I can.
Friday I had the great pleasure of being able to attend the “Sustain” catwalk show at Brighton Fashion Week. I am one of those positive-minded people that firmly believe that the concept of “fashion week” has become more democratic in the last couple of years, with the Milan-NY-Paris-London squad losing a little bit of power as people are becoming more and more aware of emerging young talents from other parts of the world. I first started […]
