Happy to announce a new project with the fabulous folks at Ealing OPEN. I’ll be doing a series of eight workshops over several weekends on various photographic and video topics. Hope you will be able to join me. All bookings can be made via the links below.
We’ll be kicking off the series with a talk about my career and also how I’ve been documenting the COVID 19 lockdown. The talk will be streamed to 200 participants and also due to social distancing, has room for 20 in person. To see more details and book your spot, either for the limited seating or online stream, kindly visit 31 Years Of Photography; Photojournalism and Beyond.
All the images were made using the L-Mount camera system. Three images were shot on the Lumix S Series with Lumix S Pro lenses and the other two images were shot on the Sigma fp with a Leica APO Summicron SL lens and a Lumix S Pro lens.
All photographs were from raw files, edited and processed in Adobe Lightroom and finished in Exposure Software’s Exposure X5, with the monochrome image being finished in DxO’s Nik Collection, Silver Efex Pro.
Its an interview on my career, workflow and the camera gear which I use. It’s mainly centred around my thought of shooting with the m43 Lumix G9 but does expand on favourite lenses, workflow and other equipment too. Hope you enjoy the piece.
Lovely to have been invited for a nice chat with the fabulous Ross Grieve and Matt Jacobs on their popular Talking Shot Podcast.
We chatted about the COVID 19 lockdown, how I started out as a photographer, my career, inspirations, philosophies on journalism and even a little about the equipment I use. Hope you enjoy the conversation.
This is so simple! If you have a computer (Mac, PC/Windows or Linux), join me and help beat COVID 19. This takes a couple of minutes to set up, is simple and once done, is automatic.
Many of us have idle time on our computers, in between editing and processing, or when we leave our computers on overnight so Cloud backups can take place.
The general wisdom in computer circles is that computers should be left on, as apart from general housekeeping maintenance that happens automatically in most OSs overnight, it’s also better for the machine’s longevity, compared to the constant on and off states and the associated surges with the computer and connected hard drives. The team at Stanford School of Medicine’s Folding@home has made analysing COVID 19 its top priority and has focused their efforts and the power of distributed computing towards SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) projects.
Folding@home is a project focused on disease research. The problems we’re solving require so many computer calculations – and we need your help to find the cures! Folding@home (FAH or F@h) is a distributed computing project for simulating protein dynamics, including the process of protein folding and the movements of proteins implicated in a variety of diseases. It brings together citizen scientists who volunteer to run simulations of protein dynamics on their personal computers. Insights from this data are helping scientists to better understand biology, and providing new opportunities for developing therapeutics.
Viruses have proteins that they use to suppress our immune systems & reproduce themselves. Folding@home want to understand how these viral proteins work and how we can design therapeutics to stop them.
To help with this international effort, simply download the free Mac, Linux or PC software and help out: https://foldingathome.org You can run this on a laptop or desktop computer and remember that every bit of computing power can help analyse the virus’s proteins and lead to its defeat.
You can select how much computing power to assign and if your computer should work on the project at all times or just when idle. You can also stop and start at will, if for example you’re editing a complex project that needs more computing power. Its all controlled via a very simple web interface. Just follow the very simple instructions.
Get folding and lets help our scientists figure out how to defeat this awful virus.
