When travelling to Siberia, why not splash a little cash and really make it worth it?

Some of the best places to stay are literally phenomenal and i have listed them below.

  • Hilton Garden Inn Krasnoyarsk

A beautiful hotel in the Siberian district, one to remember if you want pure luxury as well as the astonishing views included. Huge rooms are available and all of them are kitted out with the finest furniture and the comfiest bed you could ever imagine. With a big reception area for you to relax in if you fancy a drink before you head up to your room, it is wonderful. read more…

The secret behind a great photographer

What most people don’t understand is, photography isn’t just about taking a picture, it’s about the lighting and the surroundings of what you want to capture… there is so much more to understand than just looking through a lens or at a screen.

A digital camera is what most people own nowadays and is what is now classed as an easy way to take a picture and even if it doesn’t come out the best, it doesn’t matter because Photoshop nowadays can fix anything and that is how a lot of people think today as photography isn’t as popular as it was and the art of photography is slowly being forgotten as it is becoming too costly for people and in this day and age it is so much easier to just use your smartphone as a solution. read more…

Hi guys, Mark here. I have just arrived back home from a hectic day in Birmingham! Today was a very exciting day for me as I was meeting with some very important people who can potentially give me a lot of business! But as I don’t know Birmingham I got lost! Luckily, I phoned a taxi company and they came and got me within five minutes and literally saved my a** from losing this deal! Thanks Birmingham Taxis, your service was outstanding.

The art of creative writing

Each of us has a way of manifesting his or her creativity. If one is excellent with guiding the brush over a canvas, another one is great with aiming the great photo with the camera, others are great in using words. Creative writing is pretty much like any other form of art. It comes from the inner creative spirit and imagination of the writer. That person may not know how to paint or take photos, but will always have words in their pockets. They will always know what to say and when to say it, and are incredi read more…

A Glowing Partnership On The Horizon…

More exciting news guys, today i spoke to an old friend over in Stafford it’s been nearly two years since i spoke to him. He connected with me on Facebook and we got talking about how things was going etc and hes informed me that he’s started his own web design and search engine optimisation agency. His name’s Shane and he’s always been into his manual work, bricklaying and highways maintenance so it was a bit of a shock when he told me. Anyway i have checked his work out and he’s come a really long way in two months and he said to me why don’t we put our heads together and give this a go.. Now its been a very long time since i worked with someone being freelance for the last god knows how many years, but i have a really good feeling about this so like the title says ” A glowing partnership on the horizon”.. Here’s his company’s website feel free to check it out you might notice some similarities between his site and mine, it seems we have both used the same software to build our websites if you would like to know what software that is send me an email and ill be more than happy to assist read more…
