Urban Exploration to Fine Art: a Photographic Journey – A Lecture for Camera Clubs & Photographic Societies

Urban Exploration to Fine Art: a Photographic Journey - A Lecture for Camera Clubs & Photographic Societies

This first presentation encompasses my photographic development over the past three years, which has progressed at a fairly rapid rate following an albeit slightly slower but life-long love and practise of photography. I discovered Urban Exploration in 2009, and this led to a series of visits to abandoned mental asylums and hospitals, where I spent much time […]


Report of my First Lecture at Reigate Photographic Society – by Peter Flower

Report of my First Lecture at Reigate Photographic Society - by Peter Flower

I presented my first talk to Reigate Photographic Society in January 2014, and was extremely chuffed with the detailed report written by member Peter Flower. I don’t know why I never linked to it back then, but am making up for that now by reproducing the report with Peter’s kind permission. Extract of the text […]

Clones in Wistman’s Wood, Dartmoor (Viveca Koh) Came across ‘clones’ in Wistmans Wood, Dartmoor; very striking, loved the flavour and the way you’d processed the light. Then explored your galleries and saw that you are producing the images that I have had in my mind for years – especially derelict buildings. Thank you for the […]

Lovely Letter of Thanks from Potters Bar Photographic Society

Lovely Letter of Thanks from Potters Bar Photographic Society

I was delighted to receive this letter from Eric at Potters Bar & District Photographic Society, following my talk there last night which was extremely well received, and during which people were saying it was the best talk they had ever had (and one of them had been a member for 37 years!) All the […]


Presenting my talk at Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society

Presenting my talk at Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society

On 26th March 2013 I presented my talk ‘Urban Exploration to Fine Art: A Photographic Journey’ to the Aperture Woolwich Photographic Society in South East London, and for the first time since I have started presenting also took along my mounted ARPS panel to display as well. I realised that these prints were just sitting in […]


Paws for Thought – Another Transmitter Feature

Paws for Thought - Another Transmitter Feature

I was pleased to be asked to feature in The Transmitter again, when Editor Andy Pontin contacted me and fellow past contributors with photography and writing commissions.  I wanted to take photos of dog walkers in our local Crystal Palace Park, but when I emailed Andy to find out and discovered that the lovely Louise […]

Star Blossom Part 1

Star Blossom Part 1

When my Uncle Fergus asked me if I would produce a series of photo illustrations for his new book of poetry and prose, I was extremely pleased and excited to be asked, whilst at the same time equally apprehensive that I would be unable to rise to the challenge and create anything remotely suitable to do […]


A Walk in Richmond Park

A Walk in Richmond Park

A week ago I met my friend Cat for a photowalk in Richmond Park, an arrangement we had made some time previously, but we were incredibly lucky with the weather on the day as the sky was clear blue and the sun was shining. The light was beautiful and warm, brightening up a Winter day […]


Rabbit

Rabbit

Mark and I visited the local Horniman Museum on Sunday, a short distance from where I live and free entry too, which is always a bonus.  Remember visiting the place as a young child and being fascinated by the volume of weird and wonderful objects on display, collected by Frederick John Horniman during his travels. […]


The Tower

The Tower

Another view of the Elizabethan Tower at Sissinghurst Castle Garden in Kent, United Kingdom, to link to my previous image ‘Magic Castle’.  This one features three separate textures to enhance and colour various sections of the image, which was shot on a sunny Spring day, so I wanted to warm up the bricks slightly in order […]


Magic Castle

Magic Castle

I’ve been looking back through my (now massive) archive of as yet un-processed photographs, and found this one from March 2011, taken at Sissinghurst Castle during a visit to this lovely National Trust property.  At the time I wasn’t particularly enamoured of any of the photos that I took on that day, especially after I […]


Flora

Flora

After struggling for some time to produce any new work that I considered remotely satisfactory, I decided to step away from my usual UrbEx subjects and try something completely different, to see if I could get some of my lost inspiration to return. These are both two photographs combined, of Camelias covered in droplets of […]


Crossness Pumping Station

Crossness Pumping Station

Last weekend Mark and I visited Crossness Pumping Station in Abbey Wood, which is only open to the public a few times per year, and was on this occasion open for the annual Open House event.  After a lengthy queue to enter the building, we were then faced with another queue once inside to enter […]


To Willie With Compliments

To Willie With Compliments

This image features another of my Mum’s vintage postcard gems, as soon as I saw it I knew I had to make something further from it.  The old fashioned captions on the card –  ‘A present for the Kaiser’ on the front, and on the reverse ‘our grand artillerymen like to address a shell before […]
