Duxford Images Finally Online


My weekend in Duxford earlier this year was a couple of days that will stay with me for a very, very long time.  The sounds, the smells and the sights were just amazing and you really had to be there to appreciate the event.

The sound of waves of spitfires and hurricanes launching themselves into the sky and then buzzing the airfield at low level was just incredible.  So much so, I even had to out the camera down from time to time to simply take in the spectacle in front of us.

The event was the museums ‘Battle of Britain Anniversary Air Show’ and the culmination of numerous similar events around the country in which we remembered and celebrated the hero’s of WW2 and the machines that were so important to the war effort.

I hope that some of my images above do the show justice.  I took just under 2,000 shots hoping to come away with a handful of keep shots.  After all, this was my first every try at air show photography and it was quite a learning curve that had to be surmounted very quickly.

Many of you have been asking about the results that i obtained fromthe air show.  I have struggled to narrow down my favourite images for my Flickr and 500px accounts and for that reason I have simply uploaded just under 200 of the images to a special gallery on www.m4photo.co.uk.

You can find the gallery here and I hope that you enjoy some images of the most beautiful aircraft that have graced our skies here in Europe.

Please leave me a comment if you like these images.


New Website Live

new-websiteIt has taken a while and all of the main pages have been enhanced but the new M4Photo website is finally live.

However, I’d like to be reporting that it is complete but there is still quite a lot of work to finish on the Limited Edition Print Pages.

That said, the new site should be a lot more mobile and tablet friendly and this is something that a lot of people have been asking me for with all of the website that I currently look after.  It therefore made sense to push the M4Photo site near to the top of the list and I’m pretty pleased with the outcome.

The new site should be easy to navigate and when a photograph gallery is opened it will still open in a separate tab.  The galleries will continue to use the Lightroom publishing method because this enables me to publish client galleries very quickly – again something that my clients request and like.  However, the look a feel will be slightly different and those pages are not yet optimised.  When Adobe create an option to make the output responsive, I’ll jump at making that changes to those pages as well.

In the meantime, I hope that you all like the new look and feel to the website.
