Alexandra Park

Off on my wanderings around Alexandra Park again !! I’m really enjoying this project, especially as the weather is changing rapidly. Summer is well and truly over and the autumnal colour is starting to come to the fore. It’s interesting visiting the same area time and time again. Observing the landscape constantly evolving and changing even within a couple of weeks.
I’ve decided to publish the book early next year and have taken the radical step of not featuring any people in the images. The park is usually very busy but I want to convey the feeling that the park is exclusively mine. To show the space without distraction. I hope I succeed.

Here are a few more images from my recent shoots. They were all taken on the Hasselblad H4D 50 using the HC 120mm and the HC 35-90mm.

I hope you enjoyed them and feel free to comment.

Wandering around at the weekend.

I thought I’d post some images from this weekends jaunt around Alexandra Park with the wonderful Hasselblad H4D 40 and a 120mm lens. The project is coming on nicely and hopefully I’ll have enough images soon to publish a book. The weather was good and I was very pleased with the results.

Alexandra Palace, North London

I’m currently working on a set of images of Alexandra Palace in North London. Many photographers make the mistake of traveling miles to get to exotic destinations but forget to photograph their local region. Luckily for me Alexandra Palace is nearly my back garden. It’s a beautiful, tranquil haven, away from the madness of the city and this is what I’m trying to capture in my photographs. It’s quiet and peaceful, steeped in history and is a wonderful location.

I’m photographing this project with the Hasselblad H4D 50 or the H3D 50. The clarity of the images is superb and lends itself to this body of work. It’s going to take some time to complete but hopefully I’m going to try and get an exhibition and publish a book at its completion. My Nikon D2X is getting less of a look in at the moment. The quality just doesn’t compare with the Hasselblad, although its been a great workhorse over the last few years. Horses for courses I suppose.

Here are a few of the images.
