This is my personal blog, not a venue for saleable images. In fact, because it's here that I share things that are important to me with the members of the moblog community, photo quality's not my priority. Events, occasions, achievements, thoughts, trips and experiments - you'll find them all here. Contact me for the development version of my photo portfolio, for a selection of saleable images or visit my dance photography blog or my website for cuttings. And remember that all photos remain my copyright unless I've specifically said otherwise.

"Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between lies a life of discovery."
........ Rebecca Solnit
"Give, give, give -- what is the point of having experience, knowledge or talent if I don't give it away? Of having stories if I don't tell them to others? Of having wealth if I don't share it? I don't intend to be cremated with any of it! It is in giving that I connect with others, with the world and with the divine."
........ Isabel Allende
"Don't ask yourself what the world needs - ask yourself what makes you come alive, and then go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

"The real voyage of discovery consists not of seeing new landscapes, but in having new eyes...."

"It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.. you have no such accurate remembrance of a country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle...."

"The grand show is enternal. It is always sunrise somewhere; the dew is never dried all at once; a shower is forever falling; vapour is ever rising. Eternal sunrise, eternal dawn and gloaming, on sea and continents and islands, each in its turn, as the round earth rolls."
........ John Muir
"The bicycle is the most civilised conveyance known to man. Other forms of transport grow daily more nightmarish. Only the bicycle remains pure in heart."
........ Iris Murdoch
"Photography for me is not looking, it's feeling. If you can't feel what you're looking at, then you're never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your picture...."

I am thrilled to be able to invite you to the launch of the first ever Dance Photographer of the Year. Four years in the making, this competition will be launched with a special event at Calumet, on Thursday 25th April between 6.30pm and 8.00pm.
Come to find out more about the fantastic international dance travel prizes and huge national exposure our winners will gain. We’re a non-profit company planning to generate funds from this open competition to help less advantaged people discover the joys of dance and dance photography. Our website will be launched on the same day.
Come to find out more or just for a drink and to support me!
Like Dance Photographer Of The Year to find out more and RSVP there too please (or DM me) as space is limited

It's a year since I started my www.dancetog.com
blog and it seems to be going well, although it's nice not to feel obliged to try and make daily posts any more.
I've decided to take Easter easy, so am doing the minimum of work anyway but when this guy came over from the US I had to cover it http://dancetog.com/2013/03/30/photographing-poppin-pete-at-boxpark/
(I took these waiting for it to open)
This is Olga Pericet in last night's Ballet Flamenco de Andalucia production.

They're announced by now. I had another commitment which I had to go to directly after, then when I got home my Creative Cloud had a bit of a snit. Fixed now.. just now... but it's 7 hours after the rehearsals ended so no longer worthwhile rushing to file images with the news agencies.
I'm going to bed.
Last night I was at (arguably) the first ever time a choreography, based on distributed contributions (each sent via Vine on Twitter) was created live. The choreographer was Tony Adigun of Avant Garde Dance and the contributors... all kinds of people throughout Hackney and beyond.
The last shot is of the youngest audience member, taken with permission from his mother. Other shots show a group working on what they would 'Vine' to twitter
I'm about to blog it on my dancetog blog
