  1. King’s Troop Royal Horse Artillery Royal Gun Salute in Green Park, London. 6 February 2019
  2. The Telegraph 25 January (print) Malcolm Park/Alamy Live News. Biggin Hill, Kent, UK. 24 January, 2019. Following a 16-month construction project, the brand new Biggin Hill Memorial Museum will open its doors to visitors for the first time on 2 February 2019, offering the chance to experience the inspirational history of Britain’s most famous airfield. Major funding for the project came from the National Lottery and Central Government, with design by Robin Lee Architecture. RAF Biggin Hill played a pivotal role in the Second World War. St George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance and the new Museum alongside. Image ID: RF3AJK

  4. Not so quiet. 5 newspaper sales in this morning (27th Dec). Plus another 2 newspaper sales just dropped in, 7 for the day so far.
  5. No, if I’m shooting cooked or prepared food in a studio it’s for recipe/cuisine/lifestyle magazines or packaging/advertising where the Latin name is not going to be searched. Add it in the keyword section if you feel the need. If I was shooting, say, an ingredient or specimen (fresh whole fish/seafood/apple variety/herb/spice etc) on a slab or white background then I would definitely add the Latin name to keywords, but still not add it to the description text.
  6. I use Capture 1 with tethered medium format digital back for all my studio work, it’s superlative piece of software for processing the raw files. I would, however, never use it for my location and news type shoots - it requires a more time-consuming and considered approach to processing in my view
  7. Updated since June, figures to end September, including quantity increase of images sold in each period: 1 Jan -30 Sept 2018: 33% up on 2017, qty increase 33% 1 Jan -30 Sept 2017:45% up on 2016, qty increase 35% 1 Jan -30 Sept 2016: 22% up on 2015, qty increase 46% Trend for current year is now looking better than at end June.
  8. Start simply with astrophotography. Fitting a camera to a telescope is not going to lead anywhere (apart from frustration) unless the telescope is mounted on a motor driven equatorial mount and accurately polar alligned. Deep sky exposures can take anywhere from 1 hr to 6hrs therefore compete accuracy of the mounting system is essential to keep stars pin sharp. Your benefit over my location is you are in a dark sky area, a huge bonus. Start simply with your dslr on a standard tripod and a shutter release (intervalometer), take wideangle shots of the milky way with camera set at between 800-1600iso and lens at 2.8, see what you get. I’ve done this high in the French alps and found the dark skies were, in fact, fairly light polluted! There are one or two good beginners books on the subject which I can list if interested.
  9. I run CS6 with Nik Collection on Sierra 10.12.6 with no problems, it also ran fine prior to the 10.12.6 upgrade. I’m currently not upgrading to High Sierra as I don’t wish to lose CS6.
  10. I have images from Sept 3rd onwards still not showing but marked as being on sale.
  11. Pic 3 is a Boeing P-26 Peashooter. Just seen, Avpics has already spotted this.
  12. Only time I’ve seen the curve of the Earth when standing with a camera (not flying) was on the crater rim of Kilimanjaro, it definitely wasn’t flat from above 17,000 ft!
  13. 14.07.2018, The Times, print (p11) and online, Trump baby blimp protest, P8TTM5, Malcolm Park (via Alamy Live News)
