Nine months of 2016 are nearly done and dusted. The three words I would use to describe 2016 are fast, brutal and relentless.

Not looking at a photographer this week. I went to art school with Peter Burke back in the 80’s and i’ts been a while since I last saw him but I enjoy his humour and it comes through in the work.

Listening to Drew Cole (or Arcoleo, take your pic) after seeing a tweet from Tim Minchin. Not a bad recommendation…

Although I question the need for this Britney Spears cover.

Been revisiting old posts in this blog from early last year. Back then I was looking forward to graduating, getting time back to catch up with family and kick off a new portraiture project with a lot of energy and enthusiasm.

That didn’t happen. This has been a hard year and it’s not over yet. That simply means I have to work harder and smarter to get back to work on the goal.

It’s been a good week.

My Father In-Law graciously agreed to sit for me and while I was happy with the result, there is a lot more I need to be thinking about in my approach to portraiture and that means more practice.

I finally got started reading Annie Liebovitz: A photographer’s life 1990-2005 I have had it for a few months but not even opened it. To be honest I had seen the hardcover of this and the cost put me off but my wife spotted a soft cover edition and got it for me.

The folio pick for this week is Ian Munro. I like images that tell a story and Munro’s character portraits do that for me (warning some images are not safe for work)
