Another Magazine Feature!

Another Magazine Feature!

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 Review page that they run […]


I’m in ‘Digital Photographer’ Magazine!

I'm in 'Digital Photographer' Magazine!

This month I am very pleased to be featured in one of the national photography magazines – Digital Photographer, after I was contacted by photographer/freelance writer Dylan Baker who saw my piece in The Transmitter when he was here in Crystal Palace a year ago in order to interview someone else.  He loved and remembered my work and […]

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 […]


Royal Photographic Society – Digital Imaging Group – Projected Image Exhibition 2011

Royal Photographic Society - Digital Imaging Group - Projected Image Exhibition 2011

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 was pleased to have these two accepted for the DIG Projected Exhibition (my entries for the […]


Royal Photographic Society Visual Art Group Exhibition 2012

Royal Photographic Society Visual Art Group Exhibition 2012

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 exhibition when it opens in January […]

Article in RPS Visual Art Group Magazine

I was commissioned to write this article for the journal of one of the sub-groups of The Royal Photographic Society, the Visual Art Group, founded in 1921 “to foster the interest and advancement in all matters relating to Pictorial Photography”.  These pages are reproduced with kind permission of the Editor of the journal, Dr David F.

Fish Was Flying Eye

Fish Was Flying Eye

The flying fish was shot during my recent visit to the Horniman Museum, the eye was painted on a wall in the partially forsaken village of Doel in Belgium, the the background is Manor House B.  The image is ten layers composited together, five of these being to create the border using textures and drop […]


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 […]


ECVB – Abandoned Belgian Powerplant

ECVB - Abandoned Belgian Powerplant

A more traditional shot from ECVB abandoned powerplant in Belgium, in that it is large-scale, features a turbine and looks properly ‘industrial’.  The turbine hall was massive and difficult to photograph in a way that did justice to the scale of the place, and I did take a couple of panoramas with my 16mm fish […]

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 […]


The Cubbyholes of my Mind

The Cubbyholes of my Mind

  Trying something a little different here, in that I have taken a photo from the recent explore at the abandoned toolmakers in Sheffield and combined it with an older photograph of myself from the bandaged head series (used to create The Trick is to Keep Breathing).  I was aiming for something vaguely disturbing and […]


Royal Photographic Society International Projected Image Exhibition 2011

Royal Photographic Society International Projected Image Exhibition 2011

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 tours the UK and Ireland, and is open to photographers from all around […]


I See You

I See You

I hate it when this happens – I cannot decide between these two slightly differently processed photographs which one I prefer or which one is better – the darker and more moody version with the emphasis on the painting, or the brighter one that shows up more of those tasty textures?  I would welcome any thoughts […]


Leviathan

Leviathan

Mark and I went to investigate Cliffe Fort in Kent on Saturday, and whilst I was too much of a wimp to climb over the fence to get in (requiring walk over slippery wooden ‘gangplank’ and then a lumber over the metal pronged fence, with enough water on either side to get one thoroughly wet […]


Fiery The Angels Fell

Fiery The Angels Fell

This photograph was taken on 21st January 2010, in a very soggy abandoned asylum in Wales – I probably ought to be posting it tomorrow, but here we go. This beautiful bird (is it a Swallow? a Swift? a Housemartin? I wish I knew), lying dead on the windowsill, it’s feathers soaking wet, had no […]
