Photographer Goes Cycling

Dominic Dorey Blog, Hobby Leave a Comment

When I was a kid I used to love cycling. I was lucky enough to have had a BMX, Racer & Mountain Bike in my childhood years, but then the late teenage years hit, cars, nightclubs and girls took over and the two wheels were dumped. This is all very well, you may be thinking, and probably nothing unusual in the life path of most kids who had a bike that then don’t as an adult, but what has this got to do with photography, this is a photography blog …

Nikon SB-910 or Is It Time For A Shanny

Dominic Dorey Blog, Equipment, Nikon, Review 7 Comments

You, like I did, might well be wondering what on earth a Shanny is. You’ve probably already assumed that it must be something to do with camera lighting and it is, it’s a Flashgun.

If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. A mantra that should be stuck to like glue in many aspects in life, but in some annoying circumstances people see fit to fiddle with things that just don’t need it, and make things, well, worse.

Now 100% Photographer

Dominic Dorey Blog, News 1 Comment

A couple of weeks back on my Facebook page I posted that I was going to be making a big and maybe scary decision, and the result of that decision means that rather unbelievably I can say I’m now 100% photographer! What, you mean you weren’t 100% before now? I hear you say. Well no, as a business it’s only been going a short while and so it has never generated enough of an income for it to be my sole job, however my attitude towards photography and my business …
