After two years of work I have been been approved as a Associate of the RPS (ARPS). An ARPS distinction is the second highest level in the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) with only a fellowship being higher. To achieve this you have to be project focused and put together a coherent panel of 15 images. With this a Statement Of Intent (SOI) has to be prepared describing the meaning of the panel. My panel was based on the enclosure of Zoo animals and their inherent beauty. So although they were trapped by the frames of the images they are still creature to be admired. Next steps are to consider if I will take on the work to a obtain a fellowship.
I have been shooting Infrared images for some time with a filter, but recently I had a simple camera converted, the Canon Rebel 1200D. It’s already produced some great results and gives me the opportunity to shoot more images outside of sunrise and sunset. Strong sunlight and midday blue skies make it possible to shoot stunning images. This image was taken at the lizard in Cornwall using a panoramic technic. The Grass looks like snow and blue skies come out black. A technique that’s well worth trying either with a Infrared filter or with a converted camera.
Last month I was lucky enough to get a page in What Digital Camera magazine discussing the Canon 5D Mark III and some of my animal photography. The black background photographs are really popular and sell well. So if you looking for a new years gift then take a look at Paulbnashphotography.comRead More

A simple black and white shot of the beach's two islands and a simple piece of seaweed. Simplicity at its best proving that complexity in photography is not always required.Read More
