1/320th at F11, ISO 800 (17mm) – Canon 5D Mark II. Capturing strangers candidly, yet tack sharp, is probably the toughest technical skill to learn in street photography. With a genre such as landscape photography, you can find your location, plan your shot, wait patiently for the correct lighting, and make sure that you are …

+Tim Rawlings there is plenty of appeal for Polaroid style and has been mimicked in digital with apps like Instagram etc. as well as some photography website themes. But the price of Fuji film is very affordable compared to Polaroids old land cameras

Great. Something else to resent Thatcher for.

This article is something of interest to me because +Sky, +British Telecom and +Virgin Media have all told me that I won't be seeing fibre (or upgrades of any kind) down my street for at least another 18 months, "if it happens at all". Here I am, wanting to improve to production values of my Hangouts and I'm stymied from the get-go.

And this is countrywide. The UK could have been on the cutting edge; hell, we all could've been. You will never explain to me a company with the skills, expertise and technology to do a thing, to raise the level across the board and demand more from its competitors, and being legally cut down from doing so. (And that goes for +Elon Musk's +Tesla Motors, selling in the US, too. Hey, ICE manufacturers: adapt or die, arseholes.)

Thanks to +Sush Rose Goodridge for the share.

Heard about this some time ago, not in so much detail but, that her government were the ones who shafted the end users.

Is there anything good that she did which we should be thankful for?

Introduction

An award-winning street photographer based in a small village in Derbyshire UK. With a varied career over 27 years working as a freelance photographer which has ranged from photojournalism to commissioned work and personal fine art projects.

Photography

With a professional background in photojournalism and a degree in art photography, his photographic voice has evolved to be a blend of traditional documentary, photojournalism and street photography, an approach which allows for the subjective interpretation of the story as an artist. He has a unique personal style that produces photographs full of drama, spontaneity and natural raw emotion.

Bushcraft and the Outdoors

I have been doing bushcraft and survival since I was a kid, I later joined the Royal Marines Commando’s and became a sniper and part of a surveillance team during the cold war.  It is here where I learnt to survive at a professional level, track down enemy snipers and special forces, and learnt escape and evasion, which I later became an instructor on specialist escape and evasion courses.

Since then I have been busy as my full time job is a photojournalist and documentary photographer, but I still keep my hand in on the bushcraft side as my photography job has always kept me considering the escape and evasion situation as the risks to media workers increase, as does the surveillance of journalists.  Often my camera bag has doubled as my bug out bag as its always with me. These skills have been passed on formally and informally to other photojournalists and media workers as well as private groups through structured training.

Gary has always loved the outdoors and being a lone wolf when it comes to bushcraft (although he may have his dog with him) and built his skills in survival at a professional level and now combines his skills in 30 years of professional photography as a photojournalist for ourdoor manufacturing and editorial companies
