Chronically Me #3: Confidence is a Killer

Confidence has been a scary rollercoaster in the past few years. Being fluctuating between zero self-confidence and self-esteem to practically skyrocketing to over-confident foolishness, it’s time to settle out of this dizzy routine and find the end of this ride. So far, it feels like a futile attempt to get the grips at the bottomContinue reading “Chronically Me #3: Confidence is a Killer”

Aber-geddon: Rugby 7s

My fourth and final Rugby 7s as a University student. Time flies and it’s quite hard to believe that I’ve come this far in terms of photography and getting back into sports! From 2013 Rugby 7s in Aberystwyth, equipped with a 450d, a tamron 70-300mm lens and no proper grasp on sports photography to 2017,Continue reading “Aber-geddon: Rugby 7s”

Wedding Photography Experience

I’ve freaked myself out over wedding photography. After honing my Instagram feed to inspirational photographers (who obviously use many assistants and lighting apparatus) I am geared up to add Briony-Molly Photography to the inspiring list. Alas – I do not have a plethora of assistants or a comprehensive flash, let alone an ample lighting set.Continue reading “Wedding Photography Experience”

Snapshots #11: Escape

It’s a common theme, my adventurous trips to get away from it all. Yet, I can not stress the importance of taking a step back from intense work life to enjoy the world and life we are given. As the last couple of months has been a series of heavy deadlines mixed with a series ofContinue reading “Snapshots #11: Escape”

Travel Bug #1: Toronto

This post is a throwback to my time in toronto written in 2015… enjoy! “Urban sprawl” is a predictable description for the bulk of major cities whether you go around the globe. The vivacious undertone that the description should possessive is snuffed out by the disdained manor the two words are delivered with. Toronto canContinue reading “Travel Bug #1: Toronto”

Weight off my Chest

Not going to lie, I do like to write a strongly worded letter and email every so often. More than often I am ignored or replied to along the lines off “I don’t appreciate the aggressive nature of your writing” or “No need for such aggressive vocabulary.” Although I find that highly offensive to beginContinue reading “Weight off my Chest”

Varsity 2017

Photography Tips #11: Capturing a Performance

There is nothing I like more than lying on the floor not having to worry about things. Maybe my nihilist approach to life does have its benefits as the angle from the floor under theatre lights does something magical for me. Living by the 45 degree rule in photography and by application the rest ofContinue reading “Photography Tips #11: Capturing a Performance”

Archery Series #4: Worcester, Double Worcester

Being back with relatively frequent practises and competitions in archery, brings me to doing all sorts of rounds, not just the standard portsmouth we all grow to have a love/hate relationship with. This weekend gave me the opportunity to shoot one of my favourite barebow rounds, but this time with my trusty compound. The Worcester round.Continue reading “Archery Series #4: Worcester, Double Worcester”

Archery Series #3: String, Nose…

Again with the Archery! To be fair, it is a sport that I am improving in readily, and learning more and more as I go along. When I first picked up a bow I didn’t see myself being intrigued in archery forums and articles in sports magazines, but now I am a true archery nut.Continue reading “Archery Series #3: String, Nose…”

Archery Series #2: Vegas Baby!

Yes I have finally decided to go straight back at it, right into the deep end of Archery. So not just starting off with a WAA18 a couple weeks ago but also with the events of last weekend. We travelled up to Sheffield to compete in the Northern Qualifier for BUCS and the following dayContinue reading “Archery Series #2: Vegas Baby!”

American Football Sports Photography

Being an unconventionally British sport, American Football is steadily growing in popularity in the U.K. Mainly based at universities and community teams, the sport combines the best bits of speed, hard hits, and strategy. Taking photos of this sport is no different from other pitch sports, but note that it is more a of theContinue reading “American Football Sports Photography”

Bar 46 New Bar in Aberystwyth

This isn’t my usual type of Blog post, but I just wanted to set a few things straight. Aberystwyth is notoriously known for its pub scene boasting an impressive number of pubs for a small coastal town, but finally, a bar has opened that is perfect for everyone including sports teams. It’s hard for socialContinue reading “Bar 46 New Bar in Aberystwyth”

After an action-packed first week of lectures, matches, cheer, and editing I can finally take a little extra time to reflect on my new experiences. This week with some Lacrosse Sports Photography. The University has many many sports teams from sports I’ve never heard of like Korfball to the more common sports such as FootballContinue reading “Lacrosse Sports Photography”
