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.

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…

We have all iconic, powerful images that stick in our mind. There are several that I can’t forget, and one such image is by Robert Howlett, English photographer. Many of you will have seen it, the iconic portrait of the great Victorian engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, taken in 1857, part of a commission by The Illustrated…

I’ve just posted my first video on YouTube. It’s a colourful and diverse selection of lovely images taken by participants from the Photography Workshops I ran at Dillington House, Ilminster, Somerset in July 2016. Some very imaginative and beautiful images were taken by those taking part over two days. I hope you enjoy and please forward…
