Shoot Film UK’s Open Call Submission (a favour to ask you all)

So this is a favour I’m going to ask a few of you. I have submitted a couple of images into the open call for Shoot Film UK’s 4th zine publication, as it’s an open theme and I can submit anything I like.

I’d like to ask if any of you guys who regularly read/view my posts would mind liking the images I have entered, that way it makes it much more likely they will be included in the printed publication and not just online?

If you would like to help me out just follow the links below and hit the like, share with your friends and ask them to like too, whatever you want. I’ll greatly appreciate it. Thanks guys.

First Attempt With Slide Film

5.jpg

I’ve been holding off on posting this for some time, the roll was finished in time for the final week of Emulsive.org but me being an imbecile and massively underestimating how long it takes to get slide film developed, and then for some insane reason deciding to actually get mounted slides made also, I missed the deadline for posting my entries by a solid 2 and a half weeks. Perhaps I’ve been hiding these away to cover my shame at not being able to enter the final week, or perhaps it’s just because I’ve been busy and haven’t had the time to sit down and write an actual article on this blog (something I haven’t done properly for some time), but the images have been languishing away on my desk and not seen the light of day. Until now. So hello all and welcome to The 6 Million P Man’s first foray into shooting colour positive slide reversal film. (more…)

My First Attempt To Sell My Images

If you’ll forgive the blatant and flagrant self promotional nature of this post but I’ve finally decided to probe the interest in my photography and also try and achieve one of the New Year Resolutions I set for myself way back in January and actually try and sell some of my images.  (more…)

So I Joined Instagram

This is going to be a slightly wordy entry rather than the usual “here is a photo I took, look at it” kind of thing but it’s something I wanted to talk about and put out there, I have (finally) set up an Instagram account and have been sharing older images on there. Find it here if that interests you, give it a follow if it interest you that much.  (more…)

Hungarian Adventure – Prelude

By the time you’re reading this I should be several tens of thousands of feet in the air on my way to the Hungarian capital of Budapest for a few days of sightseeing, eating, drinking, cultural soaking in and general fun. As you are probably aware by now, I can’t leave the house without taking at least some method of making images with me and going on a holiday is no different. (more…)

Street Photography Workshop

At the start of the month I attended a street photography workshop that was being run by Jessops and Panasonic, I’m going to count it as being able to cross off my resolutions list as attending a photo meet up as essentially that’s what it was, a load of camera geeks in a room talking shop and playing with toys before heading out and using them in the real world. The workshop was taken by Damien Demolder, who was excellent, the right level of fun and informative you need from such a situation. (more…)

A Parade Of Strangers – Eduardo Pavez Goye

Lets delve again into my collection of books (my girlfriend says I have too many, but can you really have too many books?), specifically photography books. This time we have a limited run book by photographer and You Tube Vlogger Eduardo Pavez Goye, I say limited run as he sold it through Etsy on a print run of only 50 copies, of which I managed to get hold of a copy after pouncing on it as soon as could, it sold out very quickly.

Question To Followers

It’s rare I address you guys, the great public of Internetland, directly but this is something that I want to garner a response for before taking the plunge. You may have seen from my New Years Resolutions post that one of the things I’m planning on trying this year is to sell a print (maybe prints but a single print would do) of some of my work and would be really interested to know if there would be any interest in this at all? (more…)

Two Years Of Photographs I Have Taken

Just a small piece to say that today happens to be the second anniversary of this blog, whoop! Thank you to everyone who follows, browses or has recently stumbled across this place, I doubt I would’ve kept my interest up over the past two years without you coming back and looking at my work. There’s plenty more to come in the future so here’s to another year of photography. (more…)
