From iPhoneography to Fellowship: My Continuing Journey

From iPhoneography to Fellowship: My Continuing Journey

My second presentation follows on from my first – ‘Urban Exploration to Fine Art: A Photographic Journey’ – in which I will discuss my use of an iPhone to take photographs, leading up to the separate challenge of attaining Fellowship with The Royal Photographic Society using illustrations from a book of poetry and prose entitled ‘Star Blossom’, […]


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 […]

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 […]


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 […]


UrbEx Cathedral

UrbEx Cathedral

The the pipes next to the control room at ECVB abandoned powerstation. Not much to say about this one, except that I wanted to make the image my own in terms of style, and for it to be a bit different from the others out there. Large scale is not really my ‘thing’, I always […]


The Museum

The Museum

Here I am in a borrowed hard hat at the museum attached to the abandoned ECVB powerplant in Belgium.  It was completely un-vandalised which was refreshing to witness, and all the crumbliness around me was simply the gradual and inevitable decay of a derelict building just giving in the the advances of time.  I’m not […]


Books From Boxes

Books From Boxes

Here’s the first one from my visit to ECVB powerplant in Belgium with Mark last month, and not the shot that most people would take while they are there but those of you that know me will understand that this is more ‘up my street’ than the ‘big industrial’ shots. Of course, I do have […]

Article in RPS Digital Imaging Group Magazine

I was commissioned to write this article for the journal of one of the sub-groups of The Royal Photographic Society, the Digital Imaging Group, which is for members who use computer manipulation on their photographs using various available software and techniques. These pages are reproduced with kind permission of the Editor of the journal, Dr […]


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 […]


Asylum Children’s Ward

Asylum Children's Ward

This image from West Park Asylum is actually two images stitched together, although they weren’t shot as a panorama at the time.  The first photo included the window, wheelchair and part of the corridor, but it was missing the Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck murals which were set slightly behind me.  After reviewing this initial […]


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 […]


Double Century

Double Century

This was taken in March at Manor House ‘B’ in Norfolk, in the very dilapidated kitchen.  I loved the cool winter light illuminating the green bottles, to form this grubby still life where the mice would surely feel at home…. This is two shots blended using layers and masks in Photoshop, one exposed for the […]


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 […]


Balloons Ancient and Modern

Balloons Ancient and Modern

Had lunch with my Mum today, and she showed me her recently compiled album of vintage postcards, all of which were from the Isle of Man.  Imagine my surprise and delight when I came across the one below, of two Victorian ladies posing in a resigned but not altogether grumpy fashion in a fabulous propellered […]
