hello again !

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 6, 2013, 4:23 AM

Haven't done a journal for some time mainly due to commitments to work and training taking most of my time. my life is moving into a new faze as the saying goes ! I went to Pula, Croatia in august of this year for a holiday with my beautiful girlfriend Vikki and we took our 4 children with us, her boys AJ and Chris and my son and daughter, Taran and Erin. It was a great holiday the best I've ever had to be honest and the best thing about it was I took a engagement ring with me and caught Vikki completely of guard and ask her to marry me, so now we are getting married :D


I have landed probably the best job in the world ! I start teaching photography for an activity holiday company, here in the UK next year The company is called HF Holidays, check them out www.hfholidays.co.uk/ I was given 4 holidays of various lengths, I had to plan  what I'm teaching as there will be different levels of students and themes to each holiday, where we will go and  transport. The company owns 17 houses around the Uk but when I say houses we're talking stately houses, very fine indeed ! I get expenses for getting to the location, free full board accommodation in great locations and they pay me to boot, happy days ! I start in May 2014 with with 4 nights holiday "Developing a Photographic Eye" on the east coast of England at Whitby where Bram Stoker set his legendary Novel Dracula. then in Jun i go to the Black Hills of central Wales at Brecon for a "Introduction to Digital Photography" again for 4 nights. My longest holiday I will be leading is 7 nights in September and that's "Landscape Photography" in the Snowdonia National Park in Wales at Beddgelert a beautiful part of the UK. My last holiday is in the Cotswolds at Bourton-on-the-Water again iconic British landscape country and i will be here for 3 nights, leading a "Digital Photography". If all goes well I could be leading holidays with the company Internationally the following year,  I feel very lucky and privileged to be teaching the techniques I've picked up over many years of photography and to visit some of the most beautiful parts of Britain being paid for the pleasure !

one last thing, I used to thank everyone individually for favoring my work but I'm getting that many they just mount up to quick these day. so to everyone of you that's  Faved my work, I say a really big thank you and sorry I can no longer say it personally.


right on with the serious stuff FEATURE TIME !!

somethings change and others don't

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 21, 2013, 2:15 PM
Hi People ! have been neglecting you for a while now, sorry about that but lots going on. work is chaos so busy it's mad ! my mum turned 89 last month and is mostly bed bound now. my sister lives with her so mum is well looked after but she forgets what you said to her 2 seconds before so it's hard work sometimes keeping her up to speed on whats going on and at the moment she's having a new kitchen fitted. she keeps forgetting it's being done and is surprised every day when she sees it ! anyway....

bought myself a second hand Nikkor AF-S 17-55m F2.8 G ED lens and it's beautiful cost me 550, was a good buy, images are really good.

I've been out and about a bit went to Norway early June for a few days, to row the worlds largest replica Viking long ship, the Dragon Harold Fairhair,  35 meters long and 70 tone the sail was 3 tone of silk alone. there are 25 pares of oars and 2 people to an oar ! we had a great time. got some great pictures but with work and stuff just haven't had time to edit and publish them mainly cos I've had pictures from a wedding shoot to work on.

I've just finished work...my day job that is for 3 weeks ! I'm off at home for a week to chill then I go off to Croatia on holiday again.... went there last year but going with our kids, well my son is 20 now and my daughter 18 soon so not children technically and Vikki's two boys are 18 and 14. can't wait to get on the plane!

hope to get a feature together sometime this week before I go on holiday so keep your eyes peeled one of your images might be in there !

got the job !

Journal Entry: Tue Mar 5, 2013, 4:18 AM
well I got the job and will be starting my career as a photography tutor next year as the company I'm working for is now putting together 2014 holiday brochure. I will be taking clients on holidays around the UK in my fist year then in 2015 I'll be let loose around the world, can't wait ! I have also been booked for 2 more weddings for this year, so things are moving on nicely I feel.

I am happily settled in at my girlfriends house now, so have given up my independence for something better..... a beautiful partnership. I can honestly say I am in one of the most happiest times of my life right now :-)

because of the transition of moving in to Vikki's house I haven't been out with my camera much or even been editing outstanding work so the number of favorites of my images stands at 253 ! so I can't bring myself to go through such a large number currently with work commitments as they are, so I'm thanking all those friends, watchers and deviants who have faved my work lately. I promise I won't let it get this way again and will thank you all personally as I normally do !

here is this years first feature !

Photography Job Interview and Wedding Photography

Journal Entry: Mon Feb 4, 2013, 1:35 PM
hello all !
hope you are all well and had a great Christmas and New Year. so things are moving fast for me so far this year. in the last week I have moved in with my beautiful girlfriend Vikki and we are very happy living over the brush !

THE BIG NEWS IS.......

I am attending an Interview over 2 days this Friday and Saturday with a activity holiday company , well it's actually a cooperative. People are members and they can go on a number of different activity holidays in the UK and across the world. The assessment will take place at a country house about 2 hours drive from my home and I will have to give a presentation on the first day and then lead a workshop on the second day. If I'm successful I will be leading photographic activity holidays firstly in the UK, then in a year or so if all goes well I will be able to take clients on holiday to photograph vistas and people across the globe and be paid for the pleasure :-)

OTHER NEWS.........

I've been doing more wedding photography as part of my aim to become a professional photographer, it's not my first love but it pays ! It's the hardest photography job I have done, you can not stop it, there is no sorry I missed the first kiss can you do it again or can you just hold of saying " I do " so I can get the right angle !! so you either get it first time or you don't. I like reportage style of wedding photography, not the forced, stayed old fashioned style of wedding photography of the past, although you have to take formal shots the trick is to not make them so contrived.

So to promote my wedding photography I'm creating a folder for it. so I have a portfolio for potential clients can see my work.

Time for some more

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 5, 2012, 9:42 AM
hello play mates !! time for a update and for another feature thing I feel. I have 2 pictures hanging in my local town Gallery & Museum, the place is called the Williamson. they are part of a summer festival of art, one of the largest of it's type in England, so very happy with that. Just hope the sell ! these are the pictures in question Liverpool at night panarama by DegsyJonesPhoto Cliche` by DegsyJonesPhoto

I have also had my first student pass his dan grade (black belt) in go ju ryu karate. I 've had my own dojo for almost 4 years now and it was a mile stone to have a student that I've put time and effort into to get to this point and pass first time. so a very big well done to Joe and I hope the first of many !

next is, I'm off to Croatia in one month for a 2 week holiday with my beautiful girlfriend Vikki she by DegsyJonesPhoto we fly into Pula in the north of the country and stay 6 days there. Pula is about 2 hours by sea from Venice so we are hopping to get across to see the city while we are in Pula. then on the sixth day we head by ferry which takes a day and a night down the coast, through the many islands that dot the Croatian coast and stay another 6 days in Dubrovnik. we have booked an apartment above the city, with an amazing view from the bedroom window of the whole city below. we can't wait, this holiday is so much needed !!

right time for some more pictures from my favorites, again just a mash up of images that have caught my eye. I have decided to make this feature a even 100. Hope you enjoy !!?

whats happening

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 11, 2012, 4:15 AM
well hello !
things are going ok at the moment. I have bought a new 35mm f1.8 via eBay, my first through this portal and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the lens even though second hand, so will be making other purchases via ebay I think. I have to weddings to shoot this year in August and October which is ok and will bring some cash in for more kit, if I can get a couple more for this year it would be good but slowly filling my portfolio is ok for know. Wedding photography isn't the most important type of photography to me but it pays !! I'm planing to get my own dedicated photography website up toward the end of the year to advertise my work more and hope to concentrate on landscape and portraiture mostly. I'm entering 2 pieces of work to a exhibition run yearly at my towns art gallery & museum called The Williamson, I have had a couple of second places (highly commended) at successive exhibitions in previous years and sold both pieces last year for £150 a piece, so hoping to do the same this year too. I'm planing for a 2 week holiday in Croatia at the and of July with my beautiful girlfriend Vikki which should provide plenty of photography opportunities. oh yes and I have reached 102 deviants watching me not a huge number but a mile stone lets say so thank you all.

so now I'm going to do a featured thing of images that I particularly love from my favorites gallery, haven't done this before and don't know when Ill do it again but there is a first time for everything and maybe I'll get the bug. there is no theme and it's a mish mash of images but they all have caught my eye for one reason or another !so if you get featured well done and happy days, peace and love brethren peace and love !!!

college and stuff

hello ! I am currently loving being at college, the course I'm enrolled on is digital photography and I'm learning all the computer editing stuff I haven't been able to work out on my own ! I'm not good with reading tutorials and the like I need someone to show me what to do and I'm away then. It's a ten week course 3 hours on a Wednesday night, and I've already signed up for the advanced course when this one is finished, which will concentrate on studio work and breaking into the industry professionally. I also bought a new pro tripod this week and a very nice polarising filter. I'm also toying with the thought of stating a features thing here as I have amassed a lot of favourites and have quite a number of watchers so I think it might be the time to start doing the feature thing I passing some of the images that I think are eye catching or thought provoking ! so I hope if your a watcher you mare in the featured artist list or you like what I put in the feature.

Home at last

Journal Entry: Wed Dec 8, 2010, 4:36 AM
I have returned from Marrakesh after my flight was cancelled on Saturday the 4th of December and had to stay on and wait for another 3 days for a flight home which was quite stressful despite it being sunny and warm there and -10 degrees at home in England ! I came home to 7000+ deviations which I just didn't have the time or energy to look at ! so, sorry to all those who I watch or deviants who's deviations have been sent via groups for deleting your images without getting a chance to see them !

Marrakesh, Morocco

Journal Entry: Mon Nov 29, 2010, 3:13 PM
well it's here ! I'm off to Marrakesh, Morocco tomorrow and hoping to get lots of great photographs, so happy days ! my dad is very very poorly and will be lucky if he sees Christmas but he will at least see his 86th birthday on Wednesday the 1st of December. work is very tough at the moment, lots of cut backs and ward closures, job losses and reductions in patient services ! staff balloting for industrial action. crucial times but really need this break to keep sane ! training is great my dojo is full and my students all train like dogs ! black belt grading the weekend I'm back.

whats new Nikon D90 !

Journal Entry: Tue Oct 12, 2010, 4:01 PM
well I bought a Nikon D90 with a 18-105 lens and also a 70-300 zoom macro also ! I'm loving it even though I haven't had much time to play with it yet ! but I'm very excited ! I'm am looking forward to taking it with me when I go to Marrakesh, Morocco at the end of November with my beautiful girlfriend Vikki. I shot my first commercial wedding in August which was hard work, not used to having to to work fast and get the shot without holding up the ceremony and getting everything the bride and groom wanted and keeping everyone else happy!

things

Journal Entry: Fri Jun 4, 2010, 9:57 AM
well hello ! I thought it was time I actually told people what I've been up to of late. I have had 4 pieces of work up in my local art gallery and museum 2 photographs and to pieces of art work as part of an open exhibition. it takes place once a year in May and I have been lucky enough to have my work accepted every year I have entered.

I have been in Manchester at conference for work this past week and it's an interesting city if you ever get the chance to visit. The good thing was I bought a new macro lens and flash for my camera, the best thing about getting the macro is I can start a project I've wanted to get on the go for ages. This is to photograph my frog collection ! so they will be going in the gallery soon but before that I will be posting some of the shots I got of Manchester while at the conference, even though some shit head did to try and mug me for my camera ! but it bounced with only a couple of scratches and I punched the fucker in the head and knocked him out !

We are every where and no where
All at the same time
But never in the same place twice
We are those who see with vision
And yet we are also those
Who live in the shadow of others
We are the old man wheezing
The child that plays in the rain
The hater, lover
Sister and brother
We are the wind driven snow
The sun that bakes the desert land
We are everything and nothing
The mountain high and but a grain of sand
We are the universe
We are the macro verse
We are the front the back and the reverse
We are the donut and the hole
All at the same time
We are saint, sinner
And the speakers of rime
We are Yin and Yang
Go and Ju
We are dimasazanshin
And we be you.
