November 2016 was a very eventful month for me.

I had weddings (of course), and workshops in both London and New York that once again got me out shooting and meeting, and making friends with some really great photographers.

Here are my ‘snapshots’ for November.  Images that may not necessarily be technically great, and may not make it onto the site in any other posts…..but images that make me smile and that is the most important thing for me when shooting.

It’s the end of 2016 as I post this, so I want to wish everyone who reads these pages, everyone who has attended a workshop, all my wedding clients and all fellow Fuji photographers a very happy Christmas and as very prosperous 2017.

And to the 23 people in Tokyo who in 2011 had a dream to create neat, small, mirrorless cameras that would change the way I shoot forever…..thank you!

This is Breeze, my whippet.  Some friends of ours were recreating the cover of Blur’s Parklife album for their Longplayers Sessions in Malmesbury and she was one of the stars.Fujifilm Dog PhotographyFujifilm X100T ~ 1/160th @ f5.6 ISO 200

I’ve enjoyed greatly all my street photography workshops this year.  I really have met some lovely people who I can know call friends.

On the workshops, we challenge ourselves to shoot using a zone focusing technique at varying apertures ~ some more challenging than the others.London Street PhotographyFujifilm X-Pro2 & XF23mm F1.4 ~ 1/500th @ f2 ISO 400 London Street PhotographyFujifilm X-Pro2 & XF23mm F1.4 ~ 1/500th @ f2 ISO 800 London Street PhotographyFujifilm X-Pro2 & XF23mm F1.4 ~ 1/500th @ f2 ISO 250

Those of you who know Trafalgar Square will be well aware of Yoda.  It’s a facepalm moment…..Yoda Trafalgar SquareFujifilm X-Pro2 & XF23mm F1.4 ~ 1/500th @ f4.5 ISO 200

Over the year, I’ve shot more with the Samyang 12mm.  This particular image is at 10,000 ISO.  Lovely bright British day 😉X-Pro2 High ISOFujifilm X-Pro2 & Samyang 12mm F2 ~ 1/250th ISO 10,000

Then onto New York where I had a really wonderful time.  I’d been before, a long time ago, and it has such a charm that I will definitely be returning in 2017.  You can see a few more of my shots taken with the Samyang 12mm on my Street Photography in New York post.New York Street PhotographyFujifilm X-T & Samyang 12mm F2 ~ 1/125th ISO 1,600New York Street PhotographyFujifilm X-70 ~ 1/340th @ f2.8 ISO 400 New York Street PhotographyFujifilm X-70 ~ 1/250th @ f8 ISO 1,250

And of course, my main job is a wedding photographer, and so I also managed to sneak in four weddings in November.Fuji Wedding PhotographyFujifilm X-Pro2 XF23mm F1.4 ~ 1/1,600th @ f1.4 ISO 400Fuji Wedding PhotographyFujifilm X-Pro2 XF23mm F1.4 ~ 1/125th @ f1.4 ISO 1,250

I know the X-T2 has been difficult to find recently, but its currently in stock X-T2 on Amazon.  You can also find the great Samyang F2 on Amazon.

See you all in 2017!
