I’m a freshly-pressed PhD holder in chemistry from the University of Cambridge, UK (as of April 23, 2010).  In order to save myself going mental during the writing-up/defending period of my studies, I decided to start experimenting with photography.  I use a Canon EOS 1000-D with EFS 18-55 mm lens, as well as the EF 75-300 mm lens and a wide-angle attachment.  I don’t really know what that means yet.



  1. Great photos so far, keep up the good work! There’s a LOT to learn in photography. I’m still learning as well!

  2. congrats on being featured on the wordpress home page!
    loving your pictures and the fact that you are new at it! Keep it up!

  3. I second Melissa: congrats on being featured on the wordpress home page! That’s how I found my way here to your blog.

    All the very best on your photography and PhD 🙂

    • Thank you all very much for the kind comments! I hope you’ll continue to visit the blog and look at what I’m doing…. All the best.

  4. Wow, I love your pics! Keep sharing your perspective! I just ordered the new Canon t2i, so I’ll be learning as well. 🙂

    • I have just visited your blog and love it… your photos are fantastic. Some of your images tell great stories, both on the individual and in the series. I will keep checking in. Best of luck.

      • Thanks! That means a lot coming from you, as I admire your work. I’m not sure what I’m going for yet w/ my images, but if they’re telling stories, great! 🙂 Do you have any kind of focus or goal with your work, apart from aesthetics?

      • At this stage I’m just trying to figure out what my aesthetic is exactly! I’m very new at this and right now my goal is to shoot a lot of different stuff, a lot of different ways. At the moment my days are really unstructured which means I get different experiences in and different shots out. Pretty fun!

  5. Hey, thank you for linking me! Your blog is great and your photos are beautiful. I’m totally still learning too so I’ll happily follow along with you!

  6. loving your photos!

    Following you so I can see more of your work 🙂

    • Thanks! 🙂
