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 – Birmingham

Last week’s shoot was actually a break in the journey back from Bath where I’d been to a friend’s 50th birthday party.  There’s a lot of great architecture in the city centre and with just four hours I was scratching the surface really, so I had to be quite selective – and it was mainly […]

Last Week’s Shoot – York at Dusk

As the nights are drawing out a bit I picked York for a recent dusk shoot, as it’s only half an hour from Knaresborough by train so I could do the shoot and still get back at a reasonable time!  I picked Exhibition Square as my location for dusk, as I’ve only done it once […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Castleford Footbridge

The recent crisp wintry days have been great for a bit of “blue hour” urban photography so last week I thought I’d have a look at the amazing modern footbridge over the River Aire at Castleford.  I arrived mid afternoon with the bright winter sun already low in the sky and had a look at […]

Last Week’s Shoot – The Hepworth

After last week’s dusk shoot in Saltaire I thought another urban shoot with a nice reflection would be in order, so I waited for the brightest looking afternoon of the week and headed off to Wakefield to have a look at The Hepworth Gallery reflected in the River Calder. Arriving not far from the gallery […]

New Mill by the River Aire at Dusk Saltaire West Yorkshire England

Last Week’s Shoot – Saltaire Reflections

I chose a sunny winter afternoon for a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire near Bradford in West Yorkshire with a nice reflection of the New Mill in the River Aire at dusk in mind.  Saltaire is a model village built in 1851 by Sir Titus Salt, an industrialist in the Yorkshire […]
