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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York Castle at Dusk

On my last visit to York to photograph Clifford’s Tower at dusk the floodlights hadn’t been working so I’ve been planning a return visit for a while and with a nice still sunny afternoon last week it seemed like an ideal shoot for the first week of the New Year… I arrived in the afternoon […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Harrogate at Christmas

I’ve photographed the centre of Harrogate at Christmas before but following trip along Leeds Road on the 36 recently I wanted to try to do something with the pretty fairy lights in the trees alongside The Stray… Of course dusk at this time of year coincides pretty well with rush hour and as all the […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Stainforth and Winskill

Last week’s shoot was actually a workshop recce for Natural Light Photography Workshops along with Sam Oakes and his dog Ella, a black labrador, and proved to be quite a fruitful day for waterfall images… We parked in Stainforth and walked up the old Goat Scar Lane which rises steadily up towards Catrigg Force waterfall.  […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York at Christmas

Although it was still November (just) a number of Christmas markets had already cropped up so I thought I’d head off to York in the afternoon, have a look at the St Nicholas Fair and do a Christmas dusk shoot. I arrived as the sun was setting and had a wander into Museum Gardens first […]

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 […]
