For those action photography and movie nuts, check out this new promo video for the launch of the new Go Pro3 launched today!! What a piece of kit this is!!

GoPro has yet again turned the action camera world inside out by introducing the HERO3: Black Edition, the world’s first 4K-capable action video camera (at 15fps) that can also do 120 fps (at 720p). But seriously, just watch the amazing video below video. Thats one hell of a promo video!! amazing!!

Additional specs include having built-in wifi, being 30% smaller, 25% lighter and having a processor that is twice as powerful than the HERO2.

Bikes and Babes – British Superbikes at Snetterton


A few shots here for all you bike fans. As some of you will know, i am a BIG bike fanatic. I have been since i was 7 years old when Santa Claus delivered a sparkly new Red Montesa Trials bike! 🙂

Since then i have been hooked, so combining my other love of Photography is just a dream for me. This coupled with sunshine and the odd eye candy, what more can you ask for! 😉

This is the first round of the British Superbikes race series I have been able to get to this year, but i wasn’t too worried as all the other races were in horrible cold wet weather … Snetterton proved yet again to be a cooking pot!

Enjoy the images and share share share …. 😉

John Hopkins – from British Superbikes series 2011


This is still one of my favourite shots i have taken during the British Superbikes of 2011. Unlike a lot of the other photographers there, i try to get good behind the scenes shots of the riders…. this for me shows the clear focus and intensity of the riders. John was and is a very dedicated rider. Enjoy!

Advertising Shoot for new MOVband Activity Monitor


Well, as you probably know… its been raining!! Raining, raining, and then a bit more rain!! This was not looking good for about outdoors advertising Photography shoot for Fit For Future Ltd.

FFF are launching the new MOVband Activity Monitor here in the uk, and needed some outdoor activity shots to show it at work. Well, Monday came and the skies turned blue! (phew) So out we set to a local park to show the Movband being put to the test!

For this shoot i was armed with my faithful Nikon D3, my 105mm Macro F2.8 and my lens for all 24-70mm F2.8. Lighting was my new Rllinchrom Quadra kit, 2 packs and 2 heads, 1 open and 1 with a small soft box.

Hope you can see how the flash gives the images that extra ‘kick’ … colours zing out…. all in all! pleased! Hope you like! 🙂

Leaon Camier at Donnington Park WSBK 2011

Staying with this weeks biking theme, i thought i would put this pic of the day up for my friend Leanne, who has just got the photography bug!! This was shot using a Nikon 80-200mm lens, at F2.8 and 1/350th sec at ISO200. Quite a dull day but still managed to get a fast shutter speed owing to the wide aperture. Hope this helps Leanne 🙂

Enjoy… and lets hope we see a #33 plate doing WSBK next year as well!! (Go Tommy!)

British Superbikes Final Round – Brands Hatch 2011 – Tommy Hill is Champion


As a lot of you already know, i am and always have been a bit of a bike nut!! 😉 Yesterday was the Final round of the 2011 British Superbike Series at Brands Hatch. I have been lucky enough this year to have a full media pass, so have been trackside, pit lane, on the grid and anywhere else i could poke my head in to get a shot and photograph this amazing race series!

Its one thing loving Bikes, but when you also love photography, then this is just the dream gig!! Rubbing shoulders with my heroes has been the most awesome experience… and one that i hope will continue for many years to come!

Massive congratulations to Tommy Hill for a 110% deserved 2nd race win and overall championship. Poor old Hopper fought like an absolute demon and there was half a wheel length in it at the end to decide the champ! Both absolute Gods on two wheels!

Enjoy!!
