“Never work with animals or children”

W C Fields, the legendary American comedian, actor, juggler and writer, famously gave the advice to never work with animals or children. Fortunately, John Noakes and the various Blue Peter presenters over the decades ignored this. Well, we do not agree with W C Fields either. We run photography events for children & adults at various…

Winter Light on Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’

One of my favourite photographic locations in Merseyside is Antony Gormley’s ‘Another Place’ sculpture installation on Crosby Beach on the Mersey estuary. These four shots hopefully illustrate the wonderful winter daylight conditions I encountered there on Fri 15th Dec 2017. A sunny day, but windy and feeling much colder than the 3 deg C temperature.

It is widely believed that many Halloween originates from the ancient Celtic harvest festival, particularly the Gaelic festival Samhain; that such festivals may have had pagan roots; and that Samhain itself was Christianised as Halloween by the early Church. So Happy Halloween to all my website visitors, customers and colleagues on All…

Some performers take to drink, others take to audiences

…. to paraphrase the famous quote by Gore Vidal.

I am fortunate, I enjoy interacting with people, which is just as well….
