Flickr Catches Up

Finally Flickr, one of the leading (and probably the oldest) online sharing sites for photography, gets a much needed visual upgrade.

Like many Flickr uses I recently received an email notice from Flickr advising me of their new interface. I haven’t had too much of a play with it yet though I can say that it definitely looks a little classier.

The automatic re-sizing of images based on orientation (portrait vs landscape) is pretty cool and the wall of pictures is a nice way to view Photostreams.

The biggest change, and definitely the one Flickr is plugging, is that Flickr now comes with a FREE terabyte of online storage for each and every user. That’s pretty good and will definitely bring a lot of people back to the service.

I’m looking forward to some spare time to have a bit of a play with the new interface. I might have to take the camera out for some pics methinks…

Golf Shoot – Burapha 26.01.2020

I get to do a lot of Golf photography. One of my clients runs professional golf tournaments for international schools and I get called along to shoot regularly. Going to a new course, for me, is a great opportunity. It’s always refreshing to play with a new back drop. And what a great change of location it was too.

A Day in Nagoya, Japan

When your wife asks if you’d like to join her on a work flight to Nagoya, even if only for 24 hours, you go. Anyone who even pretends to know anything about me knows that I absolutely adore spending time in Japan. It’s just such a nice place that is so different to the hustle & bustle that is life in Bangkok.

Stylized Photo Editing – Do you have a look?

Many people often comment that the hardest thing they strive to do as a photographer is to create a feel; a signature look for their shots. I also wish I knew what mine was but I’m not so sure that’s a thing.
