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 pr[......]
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 producin[......]

This 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 ab[......]
It has been such a beautiful day here in London, it really feels as if Spring is properly on the way, and whilst I passed some beautiful blossom and primulas when out today I didn’t have my camera with me. So to celebrate the coming of Spring, here’s a shot taken in Cornwall about a year ago, when[......]
In December 2011 I was contacted by Steve Harnell, the Operations Editor at ‘Practical Photoshop’ magazine, after he saw one of my images ‘Communication’ on the Photoradar website, where I posted it ages ago and promptly forgot all about it. Steve wondered if I would like to feature on the Image Re[......]

Mark and I went down to the caravan owned by him and his Mum at Sandy Balls for a one night getaway this previous weekend, and spent a lot of time happily absorbed in photography on both days. Saturday was bright and clear, very cold and with more snow still on the ground, Sunday was less cold but[......]
I am a member of two of the specialist groups within the Royal Photographic Society, the Visual Art Group and the Digital Imaging Group, and both of these have annual members exhibitions, so naturally I entered some images into both.

I have had an image accepted for the Royal Photographic Society Visual Art Group Exhibition 2012 - ‘Dreamscape’, which I had also submitted for the RPS International Projected Image Exhibition 2011 where it just failed by one point to make the grade. Now it will instead be seen in print at the exhi[......]

These pages are reproduced with kind permission of th[......]
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 Ca[......]
After my success last year in getting my photograph ‘Beauty Ensnared’ accepted for the prestigious Royal Photographic Society International Projected Image Exhibition, I have again entered four images into the General Digital category in the hope of getting one accepted for the show. The exhibition[......]
Spent some time relaxing in my garden today, after taking all these photographs for a multiplicity image (for technique, please see my tutorial post), which was slightly tricky in that (a) the wind was quite strong therefore rustling and moving all the foliage, and (b) the tripod was cramm[......]
Delighted to be published in local magazine ‘The Transmitter’ here in Crystal Palace, after being contacted before Christmas by the Editor Andy Pontin via Twitter. He saw my Tweet relating to one of my Crystal Palace snow photographs making Explore on Flickr, and Tweeted me with “and a very nice pic[......]

An abandoned manor house, hidden away from the public gaze, still holds many secrets of the previous occupants. People who left so much behind, when they said goodbye to the house for the final time.
Here is a photographic journey into the heart of what was once someone’s home, an intimate port[......]

In an attempt to get my work more “out there”, I have entered the General Digital category of The Royal Photographic Society International Projected Image Exhibition 2010.
The theme running through these images is my developing (and some may say, disturbing) obsession with dead insects, moths and[......]
Seen today in “Digital Photographer” magazine issue 98, in an article about photographer Patrice de Villiers. When asked for words of advice, she said:
“Combine naïve self-belief with grim determination, be prepared to make sacrifices to achieve your goal, maintain your own high standards and be[......]
I first discovered JadedSnapper through Twitter, a self-described still youthful yet “curmudgeonly git” who is employed as the “third best” press photographer on the EveningSnooze. JS writes with a dry sense of humour and demonstrates endless reserves of sanguine patience, when faced with a succes[......]
