Daily Photo Challenge

During these difficult Covid-19 Lockdown days, it is important to get out in the fresh air for a walk. If you are able to do this, why not take your camera out also and set yourself a Daily Photo Challenge. I have been doing this with Adele, self isolating together down in Shropshire, over the…

Yellow Fields of Happiness

So 2020 has seen the hottest and driest April in the UK since records began in the 1920s. Ironic then, that the weather should be so wonderful during the Covid-19 lockdown. For those who were lucky enough to be self-isolating in rural areas, the fields of rapeseed flowers were a joy to behold across the…

Dates now agreed for my Spring 2020 Photo Workshops in Wilmslow, Cheshire.  Wilmslow Guild Photography Society will also offer a 10% discounted rate off their annual subscription for anyone who attends my workshops!    

Running Wild Through The Wheat

I enjoy running Photography Courses across the UK and on cruise ships and icebreakers. For me it is vital that participants learn the photo theory, take part in class discussions and then go out together and practise with their cameras, iPads or smartphones. But most importantly, they should have all fun. Here is one of…

“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…

Wonder of Winchester Cathedral

I have just returned from a brief visit to Winchester in Hampshire. Yesterday afternoon I delivered two workshops – ‘Welcome to the Anthropocene’ – to Politics students at Winchester University. With a few hours free this morning before my catching my train back home, I had a look around Winchester Cathedral, a stunning building which has the longest nave…

Happy Halloween, All Hallows Eve, Allhalloween …

It is that time of year again, the 31st of October or Halloween. 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…
