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 […]

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 […]

Latest Work – York at Dusk

Happy New Year!  Although I’m starting the working year with the usual review of plans for the coming months, I had a bit of image processing to finish off from before the Christmas break so I got that out of the way and up on the website yesterday… The images were mainly of York at […]

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 […]
