A Kaleidoscope Mind

An Observer Of Beautiful Forms

What is A Kaleidoscope Mind? In Greek A Kaleidoscope Mind means an observer of beautiful forms.

When I was a child I made a kaleidoscope as a toy. A simple tube with coloured glass beads inside. It wasn’t much to look at (in fact as I it was made out of an old toilet roll and held together with sticky backed plastic in true Blue Peter style).

Looking To A Brighter Future

If 2020 Was A Film

Okay so let’s face it, 2020 hasn’t exactly been the year that we were expecting.

Looking at the film predictions for 2020, this year may have felt more like Edge of Tomorrow where the only way to get through is by repeating the same day over and over and over and over (I think you get the idea). For many of us life in lockdown felt that way until we saw a glimmer of hope earlier in the year. It is only now though that we are being thrown back into that nightmare of not knowing when this day will end.

Is A Midweek Wedding The Way Forward For 2021?

The Race Is On For 2021 Wedding Dates

I think it would be safe to say that the 2020 wedding season has been crippled by the coronavirus epidemic which has forced most couples to postpone their weddings until 2021 or even later.

Put these wedding couples together with those who had already planned on having their wedding in 2021 it is already looking like 2021 is going to be a very busy time for weddings and wedding photographers. For my wedding couples I am already seeing the bank holiday weekends booked up and the traditional summer wedding weekends are also filling up fast.

COVID19: Doom & Gloom Or A Fresh Start For Photographers?

Is The Forecast Grey And Cloudy For Photographers

As I’m sat here I’m looking out of my photography studio window waiting for the weather man to be proven right. The forecast this morning isn’t looking good and apparently rain is on it’s way (so much for the good old British summer).

With the rise of COVID19 is this also the forecast for photographers? If you believe everything you read on social media and from what some photographers are saying you could be mistaken for thinking that this is the case, and rightly so.

Who Is The Author? Show Them With A Headshot.

The Positive Effect Of COVID-19 And The Lockdown On My Photography

COVID-19 Lockdown For Me As A Photographer?

For me as a photographer the lockdown, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, has been hard. It has been an endless struggle of loneliness, stress and worry. It has had me, at times, almost in tears not wanting to get out of bed. I lost my creativity and didn’t know what was happening with the business that I had struggled to start from literally nothing just over five years ago.
