Content Whilst selling photography to magazines is an everyday transaction for some people, for me it's not. So it is with an amateur's glee that I announce the publishing of one of my shots from Taiwan in the latest issue of Monocle, one of the only mags I actually still buy. I wish I could write a post on how to do it, but in fact, the Monocle photography assistant simply got in touch after seeing the photo in my Flickr account. A modest sum was arranged and I was a happy holiday snapper!

Taiwan Photo in Monocle

Even if the shot is actually so small that I missed it the first time I flicked through the Monocle Taiwan special. And that they spelt my name wrong. Unless you happen to be writing the pinyin from the Mandarin pronunciation of it (Hu). Publishing evidence below.

Content The Hipstamatic was an inexpensive plastic camera produced in 1982-4 in Wisconsin, USA. There were only ever 157 of its 100 model produced, so I'm unsure how it has garnered the devotion and attention of a pair of iPhone app developers. However, it has spawned off the Hipstamatic app, and unleashed a new generation of Hipstamaniacs, me included, judging by the fantastic feedback and results it has given.

After taking over 20,000 digital photos with my Nikon in the last 12 months, I'd like to forgive myself for feeling a little photo-ed out and I was recently considering going back to basics with analogue photography.

Content Jellyfish are awesome. They also don't need a Photoshop filter to get you fluid and flowing fleets of colour although they do need the help of a coloured background and side lighting. And so it is that looking through some of my photos from East Asia that I thought I'd post a homage to these organisms that happen to have their mouths and anus in the same part of their bell-shaped bodies.

Here are some photos, the first ones being from Tokyo's Sunshine International Aquarium in Ikebukuro and the second set from Hong Kong's Ocean Park.
