We are replacing the blog with Instagram linked images as we don’t feel that the blog is the best way to show you what we do and what we have done. Instagram does it better, quicker, ……. and without words!

A selection of our Instagram images are shown in the gallery below. Follow us on Instagram at #applebykeith

A Case of the Blues

March 16, 2016

As you can see – I’ve been neglecting the blog. Ooops…. sorry.  That doesn’t mean I don’t have lots happening or that there is a lack of interesting  images, it’s just that life gets in the way of the blog posts rather than the blog getting in the way of life.

Anyway – this bunch of images were taken in Morocco and the common colour theme running through them is blue. The colours are so strong that the sun seems to accentuate the depth and tonal variety. The photos were taken on on my small Canon GX1, which is a very discreet camera with a virtually silent shutter.

Preserve your memories carefully….

March 31, 2015

As a wedding photographer who aims to capture once-in-a-lifetime moments, I strongly advise our clients to opt for one our beautiful archival storybook  albums that will last and preserve their photographic memories for generations.

Photographers and their clients are sleep-walking into a Photographic Armageddon – they must print images they want to preserve, or treasured photos may be unavailable to future generations when digital storage media wears out or becomes obsolete. That’s the stark warning from the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and Photo Marketing Association after Google vice-president Vint Cerf recently warned of a ‘digital dark age’ where data stored on computers will be lost for ever.

These days, zillions of photos languish unsorted on computer hard drives and mobile phones in danger of being lost for ever if not properly archived. The best estimates suggest that magnetic media [such as computer hard drives] have a lifespan of 10-20 years and CDs/DVDs around 10-25 years, and USB flash drives perhaps 10,000 plus read/write cycles.

Speaking at a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in San Jose, California, Cerf said last month: ‘When you think about the quantity of documentation from our daily lives that’s captured in digital form, like our interactions by email, people’s tweets, and all the World Wide Web, it’s clear that we stand to lose an awful lot of our history.’

Turn the clock back 175 years when the emerging photographic trend of the day was more salt-print than selfie. Photography pioneer Fox Talbot was busy churning out prints from the earliest form of paper photography. Yet, Fox Talbot’s work lives on today, bringing history to life in an exhibition at Tate Britain that documents daily activities and key moments of the mid-19th century, such as the building of Nelson’s Column.

The Art of Loving

March 3, 2015

When I’m not shooting weddings I’m often working on my fine-art and street photography. This selection is part of a series of intimate but quiet moments I’ve captured with the subjects being unaware of my presence.

This type of photography is put to good use during a wedding when the art of being unobtrusive is essential.
