FROM THE PORTFOLIO

Here are a few of my favourite images from my portfolio for you to enjoy.


ABOUT

Hi, I’m Mike Chesworth, a Landscape and Urban Photographer based in St Helens, Merseyside. Photography is a creative outlet for me and a great stress reliever after a busy day. I’m out in all weathers, wind, rain and snow, I’ll be there with my camera.


ON THE BLOG

I post a weekly blog which has reviews of gear, how to’s and tutorials from the world of photography.

Social Anxiety and Photography

If you are on YouTube, Twitter or Facebook and a photographer, you have probably seen a number of videos or articles on the benefits of Photography on mental health. I wasn’t sure to post this blog, as I didn’t want to be seen to be jumping on the bandwagon, or using mental health as a way to promote a website or YouTube channel. After much thought, I decided I would share the way that photography helps me to deal with my mental health.

The Story behind the shot - My First Keeper

In this series of blogs, I want to take you behind the scenes of an image each week, describe my reasons for taking the shots and what I was thinking when creating the image.

In my first post I want to take you back around 15 years ago, to the first shot I took that I was 100% happy with, not only technically but artistically too.

Why I shoot Micro Four Thirds?

If you have watched one of my vlogs you may have seen that I shoot using a Micro Four Thirds camera specifically an Olympus OMD Em1ii. This system has gained a reputation for being an inferior choice to some other systems out there. So why do I still shoot Micro Four Thirds?
