Went cycling today & thought “Oh look, it’s England being really crap again…” #PeakDistrict
"When I started documenting times with my mother, it felt good to be able to express what I was feeling inside and translate it. I do not have the need to take photos twenty four hours a day. I select moments to switch into ‘camera mode.’ And when I look back on a lot of these images, I feel most of them are self-portraits of my soul. Being around my mother is such a painful and happy experience. I tried to take the best of my mom and apply it to the way I look at life. These are not photos of a woman who is ill, but of a relationship between a mother and a daughter — two artists."

Nothing wrong with mannequins on a Thursday. Oh no. #imaphotographer #whitstable #kent #exhibition #photography (at Menor)
Hello Sunday! A week today on Sunday 23rd March 2014 from 1130 at our "I’m A Photographer, Get Me Out Of Here!" exhibition at The Horsebridge Centre in Whitstable, Kent we’ll be having a special event with our partner charity, the brilliant Hello Beautiful Foundation for breast cancer awareness.
The incredibly colourful founder Jane Hutchison will be there for a day of co-creating an installation of wooden breast sculptures…better know as WOOBS.
I’ll say that again….WOOBS!
So you’ll get 2 FREE creative events for the price of one & a day out at the seaside. BARGAIN!
It’ll be great to see you there!
Hate selfies? Take selfies? Narcissistic?
I recently took one of myself & Sir Paul Smith, who I met at his exhibition. In doing that, I was subconsciously associating myself with him, much like the monkeys do in a troop. But with way less hair & the medium of photography. Or, as he is a hero of mine, I just wanted a memento.
If this was a hand of Top Trumps, he’d have just beaten me hands down!
So the first batch of negatives have gone in for printing & framing for our exhibition at The Horsebridge Community & Arts Centre in Whitstable, Kent & with approx seven weeks to go everything is going full steam ahead.
It’s a free event. If you would like to come along, could you get your skates on & CLICK THIS EVENT LINK to RSVP ASAP!
We’ve an Opening Day event on Saturday 22nd March 2014. In the afternoon, approx 2.00pm (TBC) we’ll be making a short presentation about the images on the wall with a Q&A. You can follow timings/updates for the event right HERE.
Please bring your cameras & smart phones! We’d love it if you could take pictures at the #imaphotographer event to tell your friends about our exhibition on social media.
The exhibition is on for two weeks, so if you cannot attend the opening, you can always bunk off work & come down in the week, or the following weekend as it is open everyday!
If you’re planning on a long walk along the seafront, or will be out photographing the seascapes, in the bracing North Sea wind, please ensure you wrap up warm!
There are loads of places to eat & drink in Whitstable, including the Whitstable Harbour Village which is great if you like your shellfish. We’re also a big fan of Windy Corner Stores, which serves excellent food.
We’ve set up a facebook event for the "I’m A Photographer, Get Me Out Of Here!" Opening Day event, which we are updating with news & info about the local area & the event itself. Please click JOIN or MAYBE & it will drop into your calendar on facebook.
If you have any questions, please tweet them to me @richfoto #imaphotographer & I shall help you out!

Instagram Worldwide InstaMeet 8 London
Had a great Saturday afternoon introducing my girl (armed with her Hello Kitty iPod camera…!) to photo walks at the instagramers London InstaMeet in the City Of London.
We started at the beach on the South Bank (yes…a BEACH) by the Tate Modern & ended up on the roof of One Change to look out offer a great London sunset. It was great to see so many age groups there all together & none of that awful photography snobbery I hear all too regularly, mainly from very mediocre photographers. Just a load of like minded people with a common goal…..creativity & fun.
You can see more of my images from the InstaMeet over on my Instagram @richfoto
