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 […]

Bolton Abbey in Autumn

Originally posted on Natural Light Photography Workshops:
We recently wrapped up out eighth year of landscape photography workshops with a great day out at Bolton Abbey (you can read about the day in Sam’s workshop report) so we thought it would be nice to celebrate with a few extra autumnal images of the priory ruins…

Last Week’s Shoot – Guisecliff Wood

I’ve been to Guisecliff Wood quite a few times in autumn, but always seemed to arrive too late for the trees around the tarn, so I made a point of going in mid-October this year – and wasn’t disappointed! I’ve wandered along the river from Pateley Bridge to Glasshouses in the past and then up […]

The Twelve Apostles and Burley Moor

I thought it was a bit ironic as a Yorkshire photographer that I’ve been to and photographed the Twelve Apostles on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia but I’d never been to the Twelve Apostles stone circle on Burley Moor!  So this summer, with the heather in bloom, I decided to go and have […]

Happy Yorkshire Day!

To celebrate Yorkshire Day today here are just a few images from my favourite shoots so far this year.  The featured image above is Haworth at dusk – as it’s just two days since Emily Brontë’s 200th birthday!  I’ve also picked a dusk shot from the renovated Piece Hall at Halifax, Leeds Town Hall from […]

On Haworth Moor at Top Withins

Happy Birthday Emily!

In my Last Week’s Shoot – A Brontë Pilgrimage post last summer I talked about how reading Wuthering Heights had led me back to explore Haworth Moor again some time after my initial photo shoot there ten years ago (and I’ve been back a few times since) so I thought in honour of Emily Brontë’s 200th […]

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 – York on a Sunny Spring Day

This shoot is actually from the week before last – you remember when it was briefly summer? – but it’s taken me until now to get all of the images processed up!  I decided to use the sunny spring weather to freshen up my image collection of York… From the station I had a wander […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Castle Hill, Huddersfield

I’ve been meaning to have a trip to Castle Hill for a while so on a rare (so far at least) sunny spring day last week I took the train over to Berry Brow station (a couple of stops down the Penistone Line from Huddersfield) and took the steep slog up the hill – it’s […]
