I got the chance to film an acoustic band from the Durham in the North East. North Road is comprised of three members, Jack Robinson, Josh Henderson & Charlie Griffiths. They cover a range of instruments but primarily use acoustic, mainly guitars, their vocals and a Cajon drum. North Road was formed in the summer of 2012 as all three of them studied for a diploma in Music at New College Durham. Prior to becoming North Road they played music individually and often […]

Well it was the 25th anniversary of the Sunderland Air show that brings in millions of aircraft enthusiasts, fair goers, and general drunkards. It ranged from great weather on Saturday to mediocre stuff on the Sunday, while the planes themselves were always amazing. I was up in the Metro Radio broadcast with a great view of the beach, the crowds gathering before us, and the yachts and ships cruising on the water. As it was a Sunday pouring with rain […]

Happy New Year!! Hope you had a good new year. I spent mine at the Gurdwara in Sunderland, while there I got a chance to take some pictures of the festivities as they began. This included a reading from the Guru Granth Sahib, as well as watching some of the festive food being made. The pictures were taken with a D3200 with a 35mm lens, and a 18-270mm. Check them out!
Since it was an awesome day on Saturday, me and some friends headed to Herrington Park to grab some burgers, play some football and grab some ice cream. Two out of those three things happened, and only one of them very well. Surprisingly no where in the area of the park sold footballs! Okay people are expected to have their own, since this is England, full of football crazy lunatics who will riot just for the fun of it, but we failed […]
While waiting for the HMS Ocean parade to start I quickly grabbed some pictures of the wildlife to get accustomed to the cameras settings. I figured why not mix it up a little with some shots of ducks relaxing on the hot day, to the water fountain which looked so appealing on the day. I got a chance to play about with the shutter speed to grab sharp images of the birds, while slowing it down to make the fountains […]
I decided to take a day trip out on Saturday to check out the parade in honour of the crew from the HMS Ocean docked in Sunderland. It was a beautiful day and gave me the chance to try out my new Nikon D3200 with a recently acquired Tamron lens. Since I was just getting started with camera I wasnt expecting to get very many good shots, but thankfully the camera and the lens meant I easily got to grips […]
