National Railway Museum|Wang Fuchun – The Invisible Photographer Exhibition|York

National Railway Museum - Wang Fuchun - York - Tom Sheard

Early last week I was invited to something pretty special. This wasn’t the usual kind of event that I am usually asked to attend so I jumped at the chance. This one was different, hosted in one of the most beautiful locations – The National Railway Museum in York which is completely unique and unlike anywhere you will ever see.

This reason this event was hosted here was because there was a true enigma in town. A man who is a masterpiece within his own field. A brave man who has travelled on trains in China as “The Secret Photographer” for over 40 years. Wang Fuchun had arrived in the UK for the second time to open the Railway Museum’s newest exhibition – One Billion Journeys…

“It’s easy being a Social Influencer”, ” I could do that”, “Anybody can just take a picture and upload it to instagram”, “Influencers are just freeloaders!”.

Ok, so some of that it true. Yes, you could do it yourself and yes anybody can take a photo and upload it to Instagram. The thing is, that isn’t the point, and it’s not why i’m writing this either. Time and time again I am hearing the same things from people who just don’t understand what it takes to create worthwhile content and the commitment that is needed to become a successful influencer. This isn’t really a how to guide, but it’s something I’d like to discuss honestly delving into some of what goes on behind the camera.

Stockdale’s Of Yorkshire|Leeds|Food Review

I want to tell you about a little place in Leeds.

Now…I know a lot about my home city (or at least I think I do) and I have eaten in some beautiful places. But this place seemed to divert under my radar. It’s a place I have heard mentioned numerous times but for whatever reason never actually had the chance to try. Anyway, welcome to Stockdale’s Of Yorkshire, a restaurant where hand’s down they delivered the best steak I’ve ever eaten… like literally, I ate every single bit of it.

ODDFellows|Hotel & Spa Review|Chester

All it took was a short journey west on the M62 winding up and through the Pennines and we had arrived. Oddfellows on the Park is a luxury boutique hotel and spa situated in the middle of a park in Chester and I couldn’t wait to stay!

The team at Oddfellows had very kindly invited me over for an extravagant night’s sleep to showcase everything the hotel had to offer. I’ve actually been needing a relaxing trip away so this came at the perfect time and I jumped at the offer.
