Recently I was asked to document a teaching event for Ramsay Health Care UK at Aldwalk Manor in North Yorkshire. It was a brilliant event where the speakers engaged the audience with the latest developments in the field.
Samyang E Mount 35mm AF Lens
Posted by Mark | 10 January 2018
Samyang are wizards, they are producing some incredible lenses, all of which I am a massive fan of. The main comment I hear from people is the fact that until now, the Samynag lenses were all manual focus. So, hello game changer. For me, manual or auto focus makes little difference. However, it is great to be able to shoot with a great prime lens and have a brilliant AF be able to perform so well.

As part of my location scouting, I ended up at Brimham Rocks. Absolutely amazing natural feautre, even more amazing to walk through and be a part of it. The views are unlike anything, its almost being on an alien planet.

Headed over to Liverpool to catch up with a good friend and also tackle the Liverpool cityscape with very different lenses. Super wide angle vs. telephoto.

York is my home, have spent so much time photographing the people and places. The Minster is one of the defining structures of the city of York, and capturing its immense size and intricate detail is no easy feat. On this particular photography session, I ended up scouting for different and usual perspectives of York.

Another incredible lens from Samyang, manual focus, which is fine by me. Paired with the Sony cameras, they just seem to be a great combination at I feel gives higher quality results. Personally, I think lens is amazing and delivers superb build and optical quality. For the money, it is an absolute bargain.

Another scout around Yorkshire took me to Whitby and I ended up seeing the fantastic abbey. Whitby is a fantastic place for portraiture and architecture, there are so many different people and interesting stories associated with the town. If you have been, you know what I mean, if you haven't, keep your eyes peeled for Dracula should you end up going.

A visual feast and absolutely one of my favourite buildings in Manchester, has so much going on. The staff even do a photographers tour of the library that lets you go behind the scenes of the public areas and see just how much more of the ibrary there is. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys this building.

An early start saw me in Hebden Bridge for a commerical photoshoot of one of the most popular public houses in the village. The Shoulder of Mutton booked in for a 360 Virtual Tour and for a series of exterior/interior shots that they could use to enhance their profile online and use to create a google streetview listing that would help drive more business their way. They were a delight to work with and the results were great.
