A photobomb is ‘a photo spoiled by the unexpected appearance of an unintended subject in the camera’s range of view as the shot is taken’. I run 8 week long photography courses for Bluberry Learning & Development Ltd in Cheshire. Today was session 6 of 8 of my Spring course, and I took the group on…

On Wednesday 3rd May 2017, I visited Wellingborough and District U3A group in Northamptonshire. In the town’s URC church, known locally as the ‘pork pie’ due to its unique shape, over 230 people gave me a warm welcome and enjoyed my thought provoking presentation, ‘Welcome to the Anthropocene’. This talk is about the effects of mankind’s activities…

I was the Guest speaker at Birkenhead School today, presenting one of their weekly Friday Sixth Form Lectures. It was my 4th visit to this fine school. Today’s 60 or so student’s were very enthusiastic – well they laughed at all the right bits. After my 40 minute presentation I had a splendid lunch with…

Just returned from a very enjoyable but busy few days at Dillington House in Ilminster, Somerset, running my Spring 2017 weekend Photography course and giving two illustrated talks on the Friday and Sunday. The weather was beautiful and the eleven course participants were a great bunch. They learned a lot and all had great fun…

Had a busy but very enjoyable day with staff from Cunliffes, a multi-disciplinary private practice offering property and construction consultancy services to private and public sector clients, based in Bootle, Liverpool. I ran an Architectural Photography Workshop at their office, where 14 enthusiastic staff, comprising architects, building surveyors and QS’s attended and brushed up on photography theory…

Oh how we all remember the great Beatle’s track. But yesterday, I had the most interesting and diverse photographic day, probably ever!! I took my weekly Thursday photography class to the historic Port Sunlight Village in the morning and met friends from a previous 2016 class at Chester Zoo in the afternoon. So I spent…

‘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…

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…

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….

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…
