Walker with Osprey Talon 44 Backpack by the River Nidd Knaresborough North Yorkshire England

I Can’t Live Without…

Amateur Photographer magazine asked me to write a short feature on one camera kit accessory that I couldn’t live without, so I chose my trusty Osprey Talon 44 bag.  Here’s the article… I’ve tried a variety of camera bags over the years from light shoulder bags for a day out in the city to camera […]

Wooden Seat by the Footpath through Skipton Castle Woods in Autumn Skipton North Yorkshire England

Last Week’s Shoot – Skipton Woods

Last autumn I did a shoot of a number of Yorkshire woodlands for the Woodland Trust. In most cases I had visited the woods previously, but I’d not been to Skipton Woods before and it proved to be such a delight that I decided to make a return visit this year… The woods are very […]

National Trust Tea Room by The Lake at Studely Royal Ripon Yorkshire England

Last Week’s Shoot – Studley Royal

I did a walk from Ripon to Studley Royal in the summer and decided to put it on my list of autumn shoots this year.  Although there’s not a lot of dense woodland, the area around The Lake has plenty of nice looking trees and I thought there would be a few opportunities for reflections […]

Roque Cinchado and Mount Teide at Sunrise in Parque Nacional del Teide Tenerife Spain

Tenerife in Winter

An article from a few years ago, first published in Outdoor Photography magazine. When I mentioned to a friend of mine that I had just been to Tenerife for a week he said “Tenerife? Good grief!” It’s a reaction that I suppose I could have predicted, given that I’m not known for going on the […]

Atumn Colours in Strid Wood near Bolton Abbey Yorkshire England

Yorkshire Autumn Images

I’ve just given the blog a new look with an improved layout (I hope!) and have changed the fonts and colours across the blog and the main website to make them more consistent.  With bringing the blog and website closer together in mind, I’ve also created a new blog category for Latest Work in which […]

Autumn Trees by the River Ouse near Lendal Bridge York Yorkshire England

Last Week’s Shoot – York at Dusk

I had photographed Precentor’s Court in York in the afternoon on a shoot earlier in the year and intended to return for a dusk shoot, so with the nights drawing in and sunset at around 6pm I picked a day with a sunny afternoon forecast and set off on the train. From the station I […]

Lone Walker at Port a Chaisteil on the Isle of Kerrera Argyll and Bute Scotland

A Walk on Kerrera

As mentioned in my recent A Walk on Lismore post, my other favourite island walk on my summer trip to Oban was Kerrera, the island closest to Oban that protects Oban Bay from the worst of the weather. After a hearty Scottish breakfast at the B+B in Oban, I set off along Gallanach Road toward […]

Caledonian MacBrayne Ferry at Achnacroish Isle of Lismore Argyll and Bute Scotland

A Walk on Lismore

During my summer visit to Oban on the West Coast of Scotland I did a bit of island hopping – including the obligatory Mull, Iona and Staffa – though the best two days were spent walking on Kerrera (more on that later) and the lovely Isle of Lismore, a long, low and lush island in […]

View over Wharfedale from Cow and Calf Rocks on Ilkley Moor West Yorkshire England

A Walk on Ilkley Moor…

I had been hoping to explore some different moorland this August but with a trip to Scotland coming up at the end of the month (more on that soon) I only managed to fit in a quick trip to Ilkley for a stroll on the moor.  Still, I’d not been for quite a while, so […]
