How to Take Great Pictures of your Kids

First Published 3rd February 2019

In this post I'll give you some ideas for How to Take Great Pictures of your Kids. I’m not a great portrait photographer, in fact I try to steer clear of photographing people, but being a parent has meant I've had on and off a willing or not so willing model to practice on.

Here are some ideas that will help you when you are photographing kids of your own that have worked and given me some great shots of my child without the cheesy grin or hands over her face.

What to Photograph in 2019

First Published 27th December 2018

Whether you are new to photography of not, photography inspiration can be difficult to come by some days. That’s why I have put together a calendar of ideas to help.

Several years ago I took part in a photo-a-day challenge to take a photograph everyday for a year. That year I took inspiration from a set of themes posted online. I cheated a bit and used my archive of photos to post a picture a day but, it did get me thinking about inspiration and writing down all those random ideas that strike. For 2019 I have used those ideas plus others gathered from various places to create a whole year of inspiration for anyone to use.

How I Grew My Twitter Following from 200 to 4000 in a Year

First Published 18th March 2018

There are lots of articles around the internet telling you how to grow your following on Twitter and other social media, a quick Google search on the phrase "How to grow my twitter following" gave me over 7 million results.  I'm not pretending to know everything there is to know about Twitter, in fact there is still an awful lot I need to learn, this article is intended to share what has worked for me over the past year or so.

In March 2017 I had around 200 followers on Twitter, but I wanted to get my photography out to a wider audience. At the start of the year I started a photo-a-day challenge to post one picture a day. This regular posting was beginning to get me a few more followers but I wanted more so this is what I did.
