Epson R3000 printer......

In October I entered a competition in Photo Pro magazine to win one of these top notch printers worth £670 having just seen one in action at the Photovision Roadshow at the Ageas Bowl. And how many comps have I entered in the past and not won - loads !!


Except this time I got a call yesterday telling me that I'd won !

It arrived today in a VERY large box. It's big. Everything about it is BIG. The first problem was to find a home for it as I already have a laser and inkjet. Fortunately its wireless so my options were increased somewhat. Anyway, it's set up and initial prints look good although I need to get some photo quality paper now and sort out ICC profiles. But - it takes NINE ink cartridges at £24 each. Have to look at the Lyson range I think.......but this is how it looks in my somewhat untidy study....

 Meanwhile it's a cold evening......

Sunset this evening.....

Really impressive sunset this evening - took this shot of the Southsea Bandstand.....







(PS - only Photoshop work was to clone out sensor dust spots. The D3 was set to Vivid to boost the colours a tad but otherwise it is "as was")

...and today I was at the Brighton 10k...

One of Anthony Bliss's team for the Brighton 10k this morning - 2700 ish runners, lovely day, fast and flat course - should have been some PBs today.
Go to Sussex Sport photography early next week to view the photos.....

A selection from 2012's weddings and Civil Partnerships......

The weddings and Civil partnerships for 2012 are nearly finished - just one left - so I thought a highlights video would be good. These are random images taken from nearly all of this years weddings.......Good luck and best wishes to you all !

Needed a break today......!

After working on a wedding and three album orders most of the day, thought I'd take a stroll along the beach at Southsea. Just happened to have the camera with me....

Ghost Run 2nd November 2012......

Tonight was the first Ghost Run in Portsmouth, organised by Rob Piggott of Believe & Achieve - starting in Alexandra Park and then with various creepy surprises along the 5 mile route. Some pretty impressive costumes were seen tonight - photography was a bit of a challenge but take a look at 2012 Ghost Run on Monday and try and find yourself.....


Eastney 7th October.........

I was at Eastney very early this morning to cover the Portsmouth 10k race and had a short stroll around with the XT-1 and 10-24 lens..... ...
