Playing the waiting game…

You’ve got to love the camaraderie among photographers these days. Thankfully, gone are the days when secrets were kept, and most of us willingly share information about locations, settings used, time of day etc. After all, most of this information is stored digitally inside the picture file and can easily be accessed. There are still […]

Is that the time? Time to improvise!

St Catherine’s Breakwater in Jersey photographically intrigues and perplexes me. It’s a Victorian jetty about a mile long, has a lovely curving lead-in line, lots of foreground interest with the granite sets and changes in textures, interesting lampposts (as in not the boring grey metal ones you so often see) and it sits on the […]

It’s behind you!!

It’s quite apt that I should choose this image for my next post as I’m typing in the height of pantomime season – but more of that later! While landscape photography is a solitary pursuit in the main, it’s always nice to head out for a shoot with friends. 2013 seems to have been a […]

Rain, rain, go away…

After all the recent horrid weather we’ve been experiencing in the UK, we have finally passed a milestone moment. The annual shortest day of December 21st is now behind us, and summer is well and truly on its way!! Ok, that seems quite an optimistic statement looking out the window at the quickly gathering storm […]

Time to reflect…

Time for a trip back to my favourite spot in the New Forest, Mogshade. In the run up to this image, I’d been keeping an eye on the weather forecast as we were getting in to prime temperature inversion season, and some New Forest water and mist was desired. That sentence alone makes me smile. […]

Birthday treat

I often venture out for sunrise on my birthday for pleasure, with no real “need” to work a scene or a feeling of pressure to make a series of images. It’s usually more about last minute decisions and non-researched gut feeling outings. A sunrise outing also means I have the rest of the day to […]

Unplanned Outings

My previous posts have been about new images, or at least those that are only a few months old. For this post, I’m going back a few years, back to 2006 to be exact, and for a good reason (or at least I think it’s a good reason!). Back in my youth, I’d always enjoyed […]

Sunrise, best time of the day!!

For the last eighteen months or so, I have been heavily involved in a major project for a company, so it’s been particularly pleasing to finally get out with my camera for some personal work. With a series of Landscape Photography Workshops kicking off this month, it was time to head out and double check […]

A morning’s work

People often ask about my work, and the process I go through to capture an image. This image of the rising sun at Iblsey Common is a prime example of my preferred method of working. Many landscape images you see are versions, or even attempted exact copies, of another photographer’s work. When you look into […]
