Rhosneigr Crystal Sunset


Today’s offering is from my workshop on Anglesey last week, we didn’t have too much sun but when we did it was perfect and testament to the art of the Photographer, we waited and waited until this was the scene. worth it I hope you think.

My workshops  run all year round and are 1 to 1 or small personal groups of up to 4, I am a fully qualified photographer Associate of the British Institute of Photography (BIPP) as well as an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS). I am also fully insured as well as being an active team member of Mountain Rescue and a Casualty Carer. This is my full time job not a hobby and as such you receive the very best training and my undivided attention at all times for not only your photography technique but encouragement and well being.

Workshops includes INSURED transport up to 3 locations, lunch (packed) and course material, as well as hands on tuition with my numerous pieces of equipment.

So please ensure before you book a photography course in North Wales that:-

The Photographer is

Insured to transport you.


holds a first aid certificate

Is professionally affiliated to at least LBIPP, LRPS

Is published in a paid environment not a freebie to mags

Above all remember…….being a decent photographer does not mean they can teach and your safety is paramount.



Blacks Ice falls

Following on from the Iceberg shot I did on Wednesday here is a somewhat Nania-esque image of the falls in full flow complete with shards of ice and misty freezing spray….I think I remarked how cold it was sat in the water and especially as it came in over  the top of my wellie…I never learn!

I’ll be hitting Anglesey tomorrow, a couple of workshops booked so I’m really looking forward to meeting some new friends in the making, plus getting out in my Snowdonia and especially the sea which I’ll be up to my waist in by Sunset tomorrow…


Have a great weekend all


Iceberg In The Peaks

Had a wonderful afternoon yesterday, had so much work on lately and haven’t had time to catch up with my winter shots so it made up well for it.

As the title suggest I came across this mini iceberg at the waterfall in Blacks near the Woodhead Pass, the recent thaw hadn’t quite got to this little clough and winter wonderland was still in all its beauty, I don’t think it will last much longer so we spent a good couple of hours there. I managed a good soaking too as I had to sit in while taking this shot and also got a wellie full which was fun walking back down with sloshing around my foot.

I think I must have a good 10 shots worthy of sales, so this is the first and is available on the site under Peak district Water.

Getting shots ready for clients the rest of the day and Stormy is in need of a big walk which she’ll get in a while


Coniston Reeds

Happy Easter all and welcome to April too,

Can’t believe how time is passing by so very fast, I have so much on at the moment plus some excellent commissions which I am really excited about, I’ll post more info when they are confirmed.

Workshops booked for next week on Anglesey too, hope that snow stays around a little longer for me and a good catch up with friends is on the cards. Only  7 days to the Zip wire escapade at Bethesda, can’t wait, GoPro primed and ready, will post the video as soon as I can after…..

Today’s shot is of the reed bed at the north end of Coniston Water, a truly tranquil place with sublime views to the hills and the outreach of the lake. It’s a hand held shot which generally allows for the best composition as you have complete freedom of movement with your camera, though you do need a steady hand and the Image stabiliser turned on the lens active.

May get a trip out later to Blacks in The Peaks,  the waterfall is semi frozen and may be worth a shoot, if not then I’ll do it Wednesday when I have more time.

Have fun
