Photojournalism

Didsbury mosque, Manchester, 2017

last Friday I was lucky enough to photograph at Didsbury Mosque on assignment for the Financial Times. We were given access to shoot during prayer time which is a very rare experience for non muslims. After everything that happened last week in Manchester there was a strong sense of community, with everybody standing together in such hard times. 

 

Gear Note: 

I shot all of these on my Fuji Xpro2 and Fuji X-T1. These cameras are great in these situations, they are quiet and unobtrusive. Plus on such a warm day the Fuji X System is much lighter than the Nikon kit. 

Chinese New year celebrations, Newcastle

My main purpose attending the Chinese New year celebrations (apart from having a good time and eating) was to document the day.  There was plenty going on.  There was the Dragon dance celebration, quite the spectacle, and various other exciting things like markets, fun fair and a performance stage.It was a good day out and everyone seemed to be having a great time despite the cold weather.

Thanks for reading. Until next time.
