A view through a room.

The view of Coleshill in Amersham today. Looks like some scene in Switzerland.

The morning after.

The scene around our house this morning. Abandoned cars from a hill just too icy and steep to climb. People are saying a few flakes of snow and the UK shuts down. Folks — this is 8 inches of snow! Any place would shut down that isn’t properly equipped.

However as much as one wishes to shout against it — complain about it — it is beautiful isn’t it?

I had the privilege of  producing a gorgeous new book of work by a talented group of photographers working only with a toy camera. A Toy Camera Portfolio showcases the wide scope of toy camera photography that exits and all the creative opportunity that rests simply in camera. The work is rich in character and highlights the individual voices of each artist.

Enjoyed one of the more challenging workshop roles this year which was teaching multiple studio flash light ups to folks who never worked with studio flash before. Flash is always a next wave of creativity so it was exciting to watch the group understand building a flash lit scene. They are processing their work and hope to put it up on The Mango Lab website this week.
