Living in Normandy #2: Has it Been Over 6 Months?

Wow things have moved fast this year… surprisingly given the worlds seems to be ending…

Normal Canadian Things I Find Weird #3

And so the saga continues. After being introduced to various aspects of coffee in Europe, see back to my Café and the Continent Post, I thought it may be good to share my thoughts on the Canada Coffee culture as its certainly…. different. *** Normal Canadian Things I Find Weird #3 Canadian Coffee Culture Ordering CoffeeContinue reading “Normal Canadian Things I Find Weird #3”

2 Months of Canadiana Living

To be truthful it’s been very hard to put into words the transition of Europe to North America, so apologies for the delay, and enjoy this rambling read… As a Brit moving to Canada didn’t seem that much of a move from the U.K. Oh how I was proven wrong. Of course the normal things ofContinue reading “2 Months of Canadiana Living”

Snapshots #12: Welsh Riviera

I love and hate having friends across the world, some closer to home than others, but always there to visit and talk to. North Wales is no exception to this rule, seeing as recently I’ve almost hopped over the border to England. This trip took me right onto the North Coast to Rhyl and Llandudno.Continue reading “Snapshots #12: Welsh Riviera”

Photography Tips #13: Prone to Target

*Little Blog Post on life and photography* Archery is not my first target sport. You could say that when I was younger I was attacked by paper, so now I shoot it in various ways, but to totally honest I don’t know why I do target sports. It all began back in the day ofContinue reading “Photography Tips #13: Prone to Target”

Chronically Me #1: S is for S*it Happens

I’ve been meaning to write this post for a few years now, but somehow I have never had the confidence or drive to commit to typing it. I may have glossed over in passing posts about it, but it’s actually time to explain what is actually wrong with me. (or right, depends on perspective.) InContinue reading “Chronically Me #1: S is for S*it Happens”

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”

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

As with most other universities across the U.K. Aberystwyth engages with their rivals Bangor in annual sports-day-esque event known as Varsity. Each Uni bi-annually hosts the competition, seeing the likes of sports and societies alike to put forward their best and brightest to win the beloved silverware. This year Aberystwyth hosted the competition inviting aroundContinue reading “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”

Camera Review: Canon EOS 7dii

What an amazing outcome. After the untimely (but fixable) death of my Canon EOS 6d I managed to acquire, one of the arguably best sports camera Canon produce the Canon EOS 7dii. This update from the 7d, has all the features the 7d had, but augmented to a modern platform. I admit I may beContinue reading “Camera Review: Canon EOS 7dii”

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…”

The Day My Camera Died

I love being a university sports photographer. True, the work is mainly for little or no money but it does give me the opportunity to travel around as well as learn more about sports I previously had no or wrong misconceptions of. Thats university for you in general though, giving you the life experience andContinue reading “The Day My Camera Died”

Snapshots #11: Going Up North (Again)

A weekend away with no internet and good friends is something everyone should do throughout the year. Last time I was in the foggy Lake District with good friends and a rabbit. This time the escape took up right to the top of Northumberland in the seaside town of Seahouses. Being only a stone’s throwContinue reading “Snapshots #11: Going Up North (Again)”

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!”
