Oxford: BMX Jam 2015

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

The last time the OWP skate park held a BMX Jam event was 2015 and here are some pictures from that event that I just found in my archive. I don’t manage to get over to the skate park as often as I’d like for photography but whenever they hold an event – whether that’s BMX or skateboarding – I always do my best to make it. Some of these guys can be a tricky bunch to photograph because they tend to be camera shy but I do my best to stay out of the way to record some candid moments and hopefully they’ll now see the value of documentary photography at an event such as this, two years later. More to come.

Oxford: Olympus OM1 test, lunch break photo walk

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016

These shots are from an Olympus OM1 I wanted to test four months ago. I was also testing some expired Ilford Pan F film that I was given inside a bulk film loader but I had no idea how long ago it had expired. Somehow the roll got fogged but I can’t remember how – I need to start making notes.

[Tech info:] Olympus OM1, 50/1.8, Ilford Pan F (expired), developed in Kodak D76, Pakon scans.

Oxford: Remembrance Sunday, 2014

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Here’s a set of pictures from the Remembrance Sunday service and parade that took place on St Giles yesterday. I’ve never been before so I didn’t quite know what to expect but the scale of the event was very impressive. After a wet and miserable Saturday we were fortunate to have a dry and sunny morning but even though the contrasty light made photography difficult I did like the long shadows and rim lighting. I packed my Leica M2 because I wanted to be discreet without using a noisy camera and apart from some difficulty with the rangefinder when looking towards the sun I soon found a workaround so it wasn’t too bad.

[Tech info:] Leica M2, Voightlander Nokton 35/1.2 II, Ilford Pan F (expired), processed in Kodak D76 stock.
