I just had an interview, and I was so nervous, why is it interviews are like that?!?!? I am just terrible at them and completely freeze, but I got the job and start tomorrow, so a little bit crazy, I have spent the day running around getting my documents for them, proof of address, proof to work etc though I was hoping to just crash in front of the tv on my last day of freedom 🙂

This week is a fun self-portrait multiplicity shot that I did in New Zealand, it was sooo windy I was scared my camera would fly away, and so cloudy that the sky is bland, I didn’t have my tripod as I had taken a little drive and a bit of a walk to find this place with a view of the Banks Peninsula, multiplicity is something I want to get more into as well as levitation for a bit of creative fun so will see how it all goes, I will have to juggle it now with my new job but at the same time it will be nice to have some money again!

I have had a busy weekend at the movies, so much to see at the moment, we started the weekend off by going to Life of Pi on the friday night which was fantastic (in 3D), Saturday we saw Django Unchained and the Impossible, then Sunday was Les Miserables followed by the football. I was at Greenwich just after they finished filming Les Miserables and with my iphone managed to get a couple of shots of the set being pulled down…

It snowed all weekend, and my plan of staying in didn’t really work, most of the schools in London are closed today and the temperature still isn’t above 0 degrees, i’m feeling very lazy and never got out into ‘central london’ to get any photos mainly because I knew the tubes weren’t running and it would take me hours to get in and out again.

Also today is Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year so i’m just going to stay in, with the heater on and see what else I can get done instead!

Happy Blue Monday everyone!

Finally Winter is over 🙂 and the weather is starting to get better (and I hope I’m not saying that too soon!)

and the count down to moving out is nearing the end, in just 3 days we move and I lose my fab view from the 20th story over london and I have to say Goodbye to Angel and the lovely restaurants and shops here, and I may be without internet for a bit too while we set up a new provider so that will be a pain! but i’m going to use this time to write more articles for my Blog 🙂

With all the horrible stuff that was going on with the stealing of my photos I found one person who really took the cake (or is it biscuit?!) Mark Jenkins from Ikon Canvas Art hadn’t just stolen my photos to use on his website, he had stolen my photos to sell on Ebay, Amazon and on his own Website!

This had been going on for a Year before I found out, after trying to get some compensation Mark Jenkins just went into hiding, So I had no option but to tell Amazon, Ebay and finally all of his sites have been shut down.

So I am finally at peace with it, but I do suggest to all photographers out there to use the new Google search to find your photos on the internet and stop people like Mark from making a living off stealing and selling your photos.

Just go to Google then to Images, and in the search box there is a little pic of a camera, just click on the camera and upload your photo from your hard drive or add the URL from where it is on the Web, it’s very interesting to see the results!

Oh and since I figured its good enough for him to steal my pics and sell them on Ebay and Amazon that I should get in on the Action too! so I now have my photos selling on Ebay under Tuckergg starting at 99p and soon to be on Amazon (trying to set that up today!) or as always from my website www.exploretravelphotography.com

So todays Photo is only fitting that it is a view from the Balcony that I am about to say goodbye too!

11*365 Trying to get the Xmas lights in Oxford Street, Carnaby Street and Regent Street, I couldn’t quite get what I wanted so I ended up adding light trails to it as well to make it more interesting, though standing in the middle of the road taking the below was interesting, a bus driver pulled over and said “you have really expensive camera gear, do you like what you do?!”

London in the Rain

I went out Monday night to try and get some photos of London, of course the minute I reached the City it started to rain!

I spent the next few hours wondering why I hadn’t brought my umbrella and trying to wipe the rain drops off the front of my lens, and at night doing 30 second exposures I was giving the rain 30 seconds each time to land on my lens, basically I had a mare, using Photoshop to try and get rid of all the rain drops was not fun and not very successful!

So i’m going to do it all again Friday night but in the mean time, here is one of my images from Monday night….

St Pauls and Millennium Bridge in the Rain
London in the rain, rain, rain….

p.s I know i’ve been useless updating my Blog and Website but i’m no longer at Ingeus anymore so my time is now my own and its now time for me to focus on my photography!
