Poetry in Sandstone Exhibition Closing

My long-running Poetry in Sandstone exhibition at The Mitre in Knaresborough is finally coming to a close at the end of this month, after a run of almost four years! As I currently have no future exhibition plans this could be your last chance to see one of my exhibitions… The exhibition is an exploration […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York in Spring

I know that the daffodils on the banks of Clifford’s Tower are well photographed already, but I’ve only got a few images of them and wanted to add a few more before the landscape changes significantly with the proposed new visitor’s centre at the foot of the steps!  So I headed into town on the […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Barnsley and Rotherham

I’ve been continuing with adding new images to the South Yorkshire section of the website recently and, having covered Barnsley last year on a summer’s afternoon I had been intending for a while to get back there and photograph the lovely Portland stone Town Hall in morning light and at dusk. The front of the […]

The Photographer’s Guide to Northumberland

The latest in the excellent series of Photographer’s Guides from Long Valley Books covers the beautiful county of Northumberland.  It’s packed with great locations all along the coast from Tynemouth up to Berwick-upon-Tweed, plus the Northumberland countryside and national park and a section on the Hadrian’s Wall area. The countryside section features a couple of […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Hull

I’ve not been to photograph Hull for quite a while and as it is UK City of Culture 2017 I thought I’d better pay it a visit or two this year… I picked a sunny day with the intention of staying until dusk.  I headed first to Queen Victoria Square to have a look at […]

Kirkcaldy and Dysart

I’ve now completed the processing from the recent visit to Fife with images from a walk along part of the Fife Coast Path starting in Kirkcaldy. Kirkcaldy boast a fair few interesting old buildings including Kirkcaldy Old Kirk (featured image, top) and the Scandinavian influenced Town House (above).  Heading along the High Street there’s also […]

Dunfermline and North Queensferry

On my recent visit to Fife I explored a bit further from my base in St Andrews than I had previously with shoots further inland rather than just around the East Neuk of Fife.  One shoot took me to Dunfermline for the day, with a dusk shoot down at North Queensferry to admire the Forth […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Dundee at Dusk

I’m just back from what seems to have become an annual winter trip to St Andrews in Fife, so have got plenty of processing to catch up on.  For my dusk shoot on the day I arrived I left the Kingdom of Fife and crossed the River Tay to Dundee. The main subject I had […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Doncaster

I managed to squeeze in three dusk shoots last week – two quick local ones on nice clear evenings but the main trip was a visit to Doncaster to photograph the Minster at dusk… As I’d never been before, I picked up a map from the tourist information office on the High Street before having […]

Natural Light Workshops 2017

As we’ve now finalised the 2017 schedule for the workshops that I run jointly with fellow Yorkshire photographer Sam Oakes, under the Natural Light Photography Workshops banner, I thought I’d have a quick look at a few of my own favourite places (and times) throughout our workshop season… When we first set up the workshops […]
