I have just received my complimentary copy direct from the publishers of ‘What Digital Camera’ for July 2013. Inside, I have a double page spread showcasing a few pictures taken using my current digital camera and also with a few words accompanying each shot. The spread also contains a brief overview by me of what […]
Last night I had the privilege to go and watch The Temperance Movement (TTM) live in concert at the Shipping Forecast in Liverpool. The venue is a small function room underneath the pub called ‘The Hold’ and was crammed with like minded souls on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far. […]
I have just been reviewing my shots from a profitable day out last year in a Lakeland forest shooting extremely rapid moving rally cars and thought I’d just do a quick review of my findings for using a camera with a good combination of fast frame rate, precise focusing and well handled tracking – particularly […]
A few weeks back I visited North Wales for a couple of days. Based in Bangor I was available to chase the light around Snowdonia and Anglesey, fortunately for once the light played ball in a few locations. First location of the trip over was Llandudno pier initially for a recce and then for some […]
Well, I thought it time I looked back on my photographic escapes of 2012 and I have tried to summarise things in the shape of a news article here. With the onset of some lousy weather I am not out with the camera and I’m trying to avoid doing some chores around the house. January […]
During this week I had kept a keen eye on the weather forecast for the weekend in the Yorkshire Dales, Ingleton and Twisleton Scar in particular.

Well, the festive season is now drawing to an end and I now have time to write my first article for 2013, so I simply want to take the time to wish everyone the very best for the year ahead. As yet, I don’t have much lined up for the coming months photographically, and seeing […]
I have been thinking about it for a while now, so I’ve finally bitten the bullet, I have now created and launched my new website, which also includes a newly designed logo. The process wasn’t quite as painful as I had expected, but it wasn’t without incident … all part of the learning process I […]
My shot from the Lake District ‘Nestled Retreat II’ has been awarded a coveted Editors’ Choice award on 500px. 500px is a photographic community displaying some extremely high quality shots from all over the world, so to win this award is a real achievement.
Had a fabulous time last night at the Manchester Apollo watching ex Guns ‘n Roses lead guitarist Slash, featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. A great set featuring many GnR, Snakepit,Velvet Revolver and Slash tracks. Took my little compact into the venue and was pleasantly surprised at how well it handled the tricky lighting conditions.
