We all love creating things but there is only so much time in a day to get things done. From working 9-5, to family time and other hobbies sometimes we can all stand to get creative in how we work to help speed things up. This is mainly a video editing workflow improvement but some of them will transfer over to other skills Continue reading

How to be more productive day to day

I’ve wrote previously about how to stay creative when motivation trails off but today I want to dig into my process of staying productive on a day to day basis. I work a 9-5 job at the minute and between posting on instagram, writing my blog and editing down vlogs – finding time to spend with family and friends always take precedence and I slack off. Here’s my methods to keep that happy medium Continue reading

Photo Post (01/08/2017)

Over the last few months, I have got more and more into photography and posting daily (minus the odd exception) on Instagram and am loving it, posting daily pushes my creativity to his maximum and makes me take more notice to my surroundings. We all move from place to place with end goal in side, slowing down a little a enjoying the journey makes us notice more things around us. Continue reading

How To Vlog

Over the last 18months I’ve been contemplating vlogging but due to a 9-5 office job and responsibilities I just haven’t got round to starting, it’s another “WANT TO DO” mixed in with the pile of “NEED TO DO”. I still want to start and am hopefully gearing up to start sooner rather than later, I have maybe 20 practise vlogs sitting on my hard-drive that will never see the light of day. Continue reading

Things to avoid in your videos

As we all have a blank start line when we begin our foray into videography, photography, drawing or anything creative we always look at the things that inspire us and motivated us to begin creating in the first place. We start making similar content to theĀ  ones we aspire to be before we can find our own style. BUT we NEED to find our own style, our own ways of doing things but using our peers to inspire our choices. Continue reading

I’m still here….

SOOOOOO………… I’ve been kind of slacking on the blog front from shooting more photos than I used to and the humdrum of daily 9-5 working and throw in a few Christenings, Weddings and other occassions, there is only a finite amount of time during the day. And the blog has suffered.

This will change. Continue reading

Staying motivated being creative

We all have ruts we fall into from time to time being creative, whether it be too much time spent on other activities, busy week at home and you just want to go home and chill or the weather just isn’t the best to go out and shoot stuff. I’m currently in this predicament where I have the want to go out shooting video/photo but the weather is just bad enough that I just go home after work and with family life and a 9-5 job I do struggle to commit time to this hobby that I love.

How to grow on Instagram

I’ve recently started posting on Instagram as a way to show off my photography and interact with other content creators and despite it’s flaws (algorhythmic feeds etc) it’s still an amazing platform for photography and videography. It’s also hard to gain traction among it’s 700million user base while I’m still in the early stages of the instagram game I wanted to share the methods I use to upload and how to use the platform effectively, hopefully you find it helpful and you can always comment below on how you use the service or where I may be going wrong. These are just the ways I use instagram. Continue reading
