So winter has been a bit of a disaster for meet-ups in the North of England, especially when organized by yours truly. First the horrendous queues of the Xmas market and then the snow in Manchester. Never put off, I am now having a bash at another summer meeting, this time I think Blackpool deserves a visit and I am hoping we can beat previous records and get 20 people attending!
So guys, winter has been too long and now the snow has stopped, cameras have been purchased and gall stones removed (I think!) it is time for another meet-up. I miss you guys and would also love to meet some new folk if we can convince them to come along. So Andrea mentioned Blackpool as a good potential meeting place and since no-one raised any initial objections, I am going to plan it there. I have put 11am as a provisional meeting time so I think if that suits everyone we could meet somewhere near the bottom of the tower as that is not too far from Blackpool North Rail Station. This means we can shoot the tower and the new comedy carpet thing. If anyone knows Blackpool well and has a good suggestion then please put it forward.
I haven’t been to Blackpool in well over 15 years but if my memory is correct, we can walk along the sea front from the tower to the pleasure beach. This means we can have a paddle and build sandcastles, eat ice cream and hopefully sit in the sunshine on the sand. Then we can have a wander down towards the pleasure beach. There people can buy a pass to go in and photograph for £5 which I think will be totally worth it, and if people want to go on rides then they also have that option. It would be great to see loads of you there, and some new faces too. Let’s see if we can get 20 of us together this time!!!!

In 1951, the Festival of Britain was organized as a way of boosting the morale of its citizens just a few years after the Second World War ended. The festival opened on May 4 and was basically a celebration of the British arts, science, and history. One of its most popular attractions was the Telekinema, described as a "state-of-the-art" cinema operated by the British Film Institute and seated up to 400 viewers.
The new Petzval Lens has proven itself a master of close-up shots and soulful portraits time and time again. Now some of our talented community members have stepped it up a notch and aimed the Petzval at city-scapes. From snow-capped pedestrians, couples chatting in parks, bustling markets, or people waiting to get on the metro - the beautiful banalities of city life are covered in these eloquent shots. Scroll through this gallery we've put together just for you to get a taste of the Petzval's urban potential!

It was a cold and cloudy winter day in 2012 when I came up with the idea of compiling photographs of people's faces. I decided that the most personal way to do it is through instant shots. They are one of a kind and you immediately have something in your hands.
It's late October in Copenhagen and summer was well and truly behind us. With the nights drawing in, the chances of going out with one of my cameras was slim. All was not lost at this time of year, however, as it allowed me time to focus on my own personal music projects—I am a professional composer/musician and audio engineer at my own studio by day.
