A quick head-shot of a friend taken a few days ago with the Fujifilm 56mm f/1.2 – I do enjoy using this lens. Compact and sharp.

I have just returned to Bali after an amazing few weeks spent visiting family and friends in the UK and Portugal. It’s been far too long since I was home – over three years – and I loved every minute of the trip. Portugal in particular was fantastic and I am already planning a return trip, hopefully sooner rather than later. Until then, I can flick through the thousands of images I took during the three weeks there to remind me of chorizo and pastel de nata!

Earlier this year – after months of reading, researching and coffee-fuelled debate about my photography – I went ahead and purchased a Fujifilm X-T1. I have wanted a smaller camera for some time, simply because, whilst I love my Nikon D3, I find myself preferring to leave it at home because of its size and weight, leaving me without a camera far too often. I was also hoping that whatever I ended up using as a personal camera might also be good enough to use for some professional work as well. Enter Fujifilm…

The X-T1 has had a huge amount already written about it and having only used the camera for a short while, I don’t really consider myself qualified to add to this ever-growing list of technical reviews and blog posts. Instead, I’ll post some of my recent images taken with this camera, and explore some of its pros and cons.

The blog is back! After a lot of research and decisions, I have finally revamped my site and will be starting to blog once again. I have put together a site that hopefully places more emphasis on selections of images and stories that I want to share, rather than my Photoshelter archive, and will be posting here a lot more in the future. One of my main goals of making this change is to improve my site SEO and number of visitors on this site, both of which have dropped dramatically over the last few years. And whats the point of producing images when nobody gets to see them!

The new site uses a great WordPress theme – SoloFolio – designed by Joel Hawksley. Many thanks indeed Joel for the help with getting everything ready! I still have a few things to tweak and I need to resurrect my blog archive, but I thought I would get the site live and make any last changes as I go. One of the reasons I chose this theme is that it allows me to easily present galleries of images, such as that now running on the homepage. And it works beautifully on an iPad. I really struggled to ‘boil down’ this home page gallery – in fact there are still far too many images there – so you may see some changes in the next couple of days. I hope you enjoy! If you have any comments, it would be great to get some feedback. What do you think of the site? How do the images look? What else would you like to see on the site?
