News & Events

I am pleased to announce that in the 14th Annual Black & White Spider Awards I had two nominations (in the Architectural and Fine Art categories) and received two Honorable Mentions in the Architectural and Nature categories for my images 'Rainy Day on the Bridge' Brooklyn, New York (see here) and 'Mystical' Lake Wanaka, New Zealand (see here). Competition was strong (6418 entries from 73 countries) so I'm proud and honoured that my work has been recognised in this way.

Last year I featured in a podcast where I was interviewed by my good friend and Australian landscape photographer, Christian Fletcher and Carwyn Church. A mixture of discussions about my approach to photography and some light hearted banter where Christian does his best to wind me up! You can hear it here.

In 2015 Olympus UK produced a video about my approach to landscape photography - it can be found here. I'm pleased to say that it has proved to be popular and last time I looked it had received over 174,000 views. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to watch it to date.

Articles & Web Features

While my travelling has been put on hold due to Covid19 I have been working on a project photographing my local woods with a couple of Olympus OMDs converted to record infrared light. The project ('An Oasis of Tranquility') has kept me sane during these difficult times. I have written about the project (including some technical information about shooting with IR converted cameras) in a blog post for Olympus that can be found here.

A blog post I have written on abstract photography has been published on the Olympus Imagespace website (see here). It was produced with the hope of inspiring my fellow photographers who are feeling frustrated at not being able to move far from home at the moment due to Covid19 restrictions.

PhotoPXL is a website run by my good friend and occasional partner in leading workshops, Kevin Raber that is well worth checking out. My article on the 'The Value of Working on Projects' (illustrated with images from my 'The Forgotten' project) has been published on the site here


I am currently booked to give a talk & presentation of my photographs at: -

Morpeth Camera Club - 23rd February 2021 (subject still to be determined).
