Shrewsbury Open Studios

We’re thrilled to be exhibiting as part of the Shrewsbury Open Studios this year. We’re familiar with the concept from our Brighton days and when we discovered Shrewsbury had been doing something similar it was a no brainer! Tonight, 2 June there is a Private View of artworks by all […]

Drone Photography and Video

We recently invested in a DJI Phantom 4 Pro which we intend to use to extend the scope of our landscape and travel photography to include Drone Photography and video.   Drone photography is in its infancy right now, sites like Dronestagr.am providing a community and inspiration to a new generation […]

Photographing Portmeirion

A trip to Portmeirion has been on the cards ever since I finished watching “The Prisoner” back in 1968. The village was designed and built by Sir Clough Williams-Ellis between 1925 and 1975 in the style of an Italian village – rumoured to be Portofino. Normally, Portmeirion is packed with […]

Today was the last day that the Ironbridge Gorge Museums would be open until March. I thought it would be a good opportunity to get up early and investigate the Tar Tunnels, a man made construction running 1000 yards into the hill at Coalport in the Ironbridge Gorge.   I’d […]

The Good Life

Two days before I left for America at the beginning of the month, I moved permanently out of Brighton and parachuted, temporarily courtesy of my partner Viv’s parents, into the rather wonderful countryside of Shropshire. So, no longer a Brighton based Photographer – rather, given the amount of travel I’m doing […]

Street Photography in Bangalore

When I finished my 365 Day Project, I found myself curiously adrift. I no longer felt motivated to go out and shoot every single day, but I was also keenly aware that the simple fact of shooting every day had improved my ability to see photographs and also my technique […]

Brighton in Black & White: West Pier

Brighton’s ruined West Pier is one of the iconic landmarks of the South Coast. Certainly one of the most photographed and when I started my 365 Day Project, I made a resolution to try and avoid repeating the most cliched of the shots I’d seen. In fact I almost went […]
