Clearly not a Blogger !

I am clearly not a blogger nor am I a Photographer! but I am out there taking Photos and editing till my hearts content..

This unexpectadly has gotten me a rather large following on various different social media outlets..I have been absolutely blown away by some of the comments I have received over the short time I have been involved in sharing my work..

I suppose one reason for my humble surprise is the fact that I don’t know what I am doing ,I simply see something I love and capture it the way I see it .

I am open and have not been schooled in any specific way,I joke in my Bio that ” Chris is  a free thinking Artist traveling the world” ..well when I think about it I am .. its a passion with no rewards other than kind words from strangers..
Sometimes these are priceless ,even more so when someone I respect as a photographer gets involved with my flow..
Some say I inspire them ,some beg me for more ,some comment on every image I share and some even want to be like me and see the world as I do..???
Sometimes its tiring and sometimes its energising , so for that reason I will be easing off a little with the social media side of things and will concentrate my energy into my website and organising my collection with better information and tagging .
Sometimes less is more..
Here are some of my images that have inspired me to carry on ..yes I know its sad but I am my own fan
Thanks again for all that have followed me and taken time check out my work..

Why shoot RAW ..Why you should always shoot RAW

Why shoot Raw

Why you should always shoot RAW

Shooting Raw is  a total game changer for me ,I love it .

Check out the article here!

This image for example I shot using natural light ,no flash was used .

With the RAW information I can manipulate the light even further using software like Lightroom.

I am using a cropped sensor camera but ALWAYS shoot raw to allow me to get the best out of every image..

This set of images is of my home town  Hull ..Been here several months now so obviously got a few images to share of my up and coming City. All my latest images are available here!

In just over a week I get to hit the road again for 7 Months.

As usual I will be based in Thailand on the  small island Koh Chang , some of the best skys I have ever seen there plus its a great gateway to other smaller islands.

I will have to leave Thailand occasionally for Visa reasons and Vietnam will be the first of my Visa runs .

I love Vietnam and Saigon has some of the most amazing street life you will ever see.

It  should be pretty diverse again with a little Bangkok in there and maybe a bit of Burma 

Christmas will be had on Koh Samui Island ..My second home I guess,its always fantastic to get back onto that Rock and catch up with familiar faces.

A Great place for Photography also  as it has  an amazing Jungle in the centre with dozens of roads into the mountains  and beaches to die for scattered around the 52 KM circumference .. The Factory

Barton Bike Night

Barton Bike Night.

On Wednesday 1st July 2015 between 5pm -10pm in Barton Upon Humber the Town centre again became the venue for the annual Bike Fest in the North Lincolnshire Market town. Approx 20,000 attended.

It was my first time there and as an old petrol head I absolutely  loved .

My best friend who sadly passed away a few months ago would go there every year without fail so it only felt right to finally check it out myself and see what its all about  ..

I actually managed to go on his old bike as well which was even more fitting .

Fantastic night was had and I will be back again too Barton without a doubt next year ..

Enjoy .

Time Passing By

For years I have seen this old bike down a side street in the back end of Surat Thani..
There are very few if any tourists in this town,occasionally they pass through to catch the Boat to Koh Samui island..but most fly and miss this old Thai City….its Raw Thailand ,My girlfriend is from Surat hence why I have been here many times..
Its strange how Thai people will leave other peoples positions alone ,I see old cars / bike etc all the time that have trees growing around its someone elses property people simply leave it there…I guess the owner of this old bike has passed away ..
Armed with my camera one night I went to this old bike and sat down ..How long its been here nobody knows ..maybe 10 years or more..its never moved ..As I sat there I couldn’t help thinking about how time passes us by and how some things stand still.
Me …I never stand still .
As for the bike ..I bet its still thereon my next visit to this great Thai City..Surat Thani .
