Last Week’s Shoot – The Stray, Harrogate

This shoot was actually the week before last and you may have seen a few images from it on my Instagram feed if you’re on there, but there was such a nice crop of cherry blossom on The Stray this year that I thought I’d share a few more images on the blog! I’d gone […]

New Christmas Images

I’ve been out and about locally adding a few new Christmassy images , which may make an appearance in my 2020 range of calendars! Montpellier Hill in Harrogate was looking particulatly pretty this year with white lights across the entrance to Montpellier Mews and Christmas trees in the shop windows. I prefer to shoot my […]

Calendars for Christmas!

This is just a quick reminder that my range of local calendars is still available for purchase online, making ideal Christmas gifts! I have all six designs in stock at the moment but Knaresborough, Harrogate and Boroughbridge are running low, so please order soon to avoid disappointment. Ripon, Nidderdale and Yorkshire designs complete the 2019 […]

Harrogate in Summer

As it’s just a ten minute train ride from Knaresborough this was a very lazy shoot for me, but I thought I’d add a few summery shots around the centre of Harrogate – they may well come in handy for my 2020 calendar! One good thing about returning to the same subjects each year is […]

A Bluebell Walk from Ripley

I wanted to try a new woodland for bluebell photography this year and, although I have walked through Hollybank Wood at Ripley (near Harrogate) before I’ve never photographed it, so I decided to combine this with a circular walk around Ripley taking in some other woodland too… I set off from the village following Hollybank […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Snow!

Despite the wintry weather I managed to get out to take some local photographs four days in a row last week! I started on foot in Knaresborough with a few atmospheric images as the snow began to fall. On the snowiest morning, the main roads were still clear so I headed to Ripon (by bus […]

New Local Postcards

To sit alongside my local calendars covering the Harrogate district, I have introduced a new range of local postcards with designs including Knaresborough, Harrogate, Ripon and Nidderdale. The postcards are A6 size and are printed on 300gsm TRUcard stock.  There’s a classic postcard layout on the reverse featuring a barcode for the postcard range, a […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Birk Crag

I have wandered through the Pine Woods at Harrogate a number of times on visits to Harlow Carr gardens but have never explored the woods at nearby Birk Crag, so with the autumn colours coming to their peak I picked a nice still overcast day last week to explore… There is an area of woodland […]
