A weekend in York

Having never really spent time in York and wanting to see a statue of Constantine (a Yorkshire man) who became the leader of the world as we know it. We travelled to the northern city to walk the streets and I secretly had an idea of taking some candid photography. A great day out and... Continue Reading →

Not just a style, but a craft.

As you may know, I've been taking photos for 35 years. Yet when I look back over the shots I've taken over the  years they seem to jump in and out of styles and mediums constantly.  I normally use a Nikon 3500 now, but more often than not a mobile phone. I also work in... Continue Reading →

Street photography in Spain

So this week we're tramping the streets of Benidorm, Spain. The sun is out and it feels great to feel the warmth of the Sun on my face. Naturally, I'm taking photos and people watching. Here are a few from yesterday. © Lucas Thompson-Murphy

Street photography and Sean

Street photography is really about stepping outside of the comfort zone and greeting people in an open way. I was walking with my wife and caught the perfect shot, one weekend in Bridlington.

I'm stunned. The fact is, I'm not selling anything and only do this for the joy that photography brings. Here are... Continue Reading →

Empathy and Street Photography

It's difficult to not have empathy with an image like this. We live in a cruel environment, that has no time for the weak or infirm. It's better to beat someone up, than do a weekly shop for your Gran. I once knew someone, who grew up in Albania under the Communists, worked in Italy... Continue Reading →

Unusual edits

Sometimes I take a shot that is unusual, or difficult to edit for the audience. This was captured in a graveyard some years back. It's like marmite, love it or hate it. An over edit by some standards, or interesting with the cobwebs, string, reflection or stained glass.. it ticks all the boxes for me.... Continue Reading →

Love a good Sunrise

I don't often do Sunrises as they require early starts and a bit more commitment to the usual photography. I've always admired the people that do . When I have ventured out early, I have captured something special though. © Lucas Thompson-Murphy
