Perfect Timing Makes An Interesting Shot

‘Wherever there is light, one can photograph’ said Alfred Stieglitz (1864-1946) the great American photographer. This is true, but sometimes you get really lucky when the light, colour and subject matter come together at the same time – perfect timing. This happened the other day when I was strolling along the shore of the River Mersey. It was…

One Week, Two Nations, Two Schools and 150 Children

The Rugby Six Nations competition is on at the moment. Last week was a very interesting and fulfilling one, where I had my own, mini Two Nations event. I visited St Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Halifax in Yorkshire on the Monday. Presented ‘Antarctica – A Really Cool Place’ to their Year 2 classes. On the Thursday…

Alice in Wonderland Weathervane on the Way to Wilmslow

Had a great night giving my Feathers and Wings talk at Wilmslow Guild yesterday. Whilst driving there earlier in the afternoon, the sun popped out so I decided to take a detour via Daresbury. Famous as the village where Charles Dodgson, better known as Lewis Carroll, was born in 1832 and grew up as a child….

The clouds parted and came forth the sunlight

I had a walk along the River Mersey shoreline yesterday, it was a miserable, grey and overcast day. However, at one moment the clouds parted and the sun shone. I photographed these two white vessels on the misty and gloomy river, reflecting the brief sunshine. Have a look at the tiny boat with the fisherman…

A Wander in the Winter Sun

With my new hip now 5 weeks old, I have been gradually increasing the lengths of my walks on the new joint over the last week or so. So a nice excuse to wander along the River Mersey at New Brighton on the Wirral yesterday afternoon. A cold but beautiful, still and sunny day. As you…

Penguin Awareness Day 2017

Today 20th January is PENGUIN AWARENESS DAY 2017. A day to think about these amazing birds that live in some of the world’s most fragile environments. Here is a useful graphic showing 18 Penguin Species and their current Survival Status in our ever changing and warming world.  

Looking Ahead To 2017

As 2016 draws to an end, time to plan for 2017 and already looking forward to my Photography Courses & Workshops at Dillington House, Ilminster, Somerset. Hope some of you can join me at this superb venue, a Grade I listed C18th house with stunning gardens set in beautiful parkland.

2016 – Our best year yet

Have now finished my last courses, workshops and illustrated lectures for 2016. It has been a good year – the best since I launched andersonimages in 2008. So thanks to new and existing clients and customers for their support this year.

Winchester Wanderings

Just back from a couple of days in Winchester, Hampshire, lecturing at the University. Had only a couple of hours to take some shots around the city centre bathed in winter sunshine. Winchester, once the capital of medieval England ruled by the legendary King Alfred. Beautiful place to live and work. Looking forward to returning…
