Long Time No ( well little) See

                            Well it really has been a long time coming but here is my first entry since our move here to Bridgnorth. I simply can’t believe that nearly two years has passed. Photographically things got off to a very slow start for a multitude of reasons but I’m now looking at a growing collection of local images covering all seasons ( not that Winter as I like to know it really happened). Locations include Ironbridge, Bridgnorth, Broseley, Cressage, The Wrekin, Titterstone Clee Hill, The Wyre...

Wet Weather? Time to get out with your camera.

                                        Every one of these images was taken in or around pouring rain. Over the past eight years I have chosen to photograph more and more in these conditions. I have to admit that it was initially with reluctance; the blue sky, white fluffy cloud days that I hoped to photograph were so few and far between that I just ignored the weather man and headed out anyway. Every time I returned, soaked and chilled with a clutch of new images I was delighted with the...

Why film has made Me. Prologue.

We’re off to Bridgnorth in a weeks time on a house hunting trip. The image below was made on my last visit while we were visiting the local schools with our children.                 I find it interesting how poor digital cameras are at capturing this sort of thing compared to film and especially Large Format. Old, decaying, flaky buildings have become some of my favourite subject matter in recent years and that is in no small part down to the fine detail that I can render with film. No matter what digital camera I have tried ( it’s not...

A Change of Scene

Well, it really has been an interesting past six months. Looking through the new images I’ve recently posted on this site I’m pleased, and even more surprised to have produced some satisfactory work. This Autumn/Winter/Spring has been plagued with misfortune and has left me with a feeling of great frustration caused by a lack of time out on the hill with and without my camera. With the demise of one of our cars, the constant (and extremely expensive) breakdowns and repairs of our other and the lack of means to replace either and an injured knee I became trapped at home at the end...

Isle of Mull

Isle of Mull

I saw a TV programme back in 2001 that had me clamouring to get to the wonderful Isle of Mull to climb it’s mountains and to visit an old ruin featured in the episode. In 2002 I made my first visit and I have been back for at least a day or two every year since to enjoy its softer, more gentle but still dramatic landscapes.
