- A Quiet DayLadybower Reservoir – Peaks At last a quiet day, or should I speak too soon!. Throwing it down outside with gale force winds…hmmm not the best way to spend a Wednesday I guess but here in my office with the fur kids and a classic Scorpions track on ‘maybe I maybe you’ who could ask […]
- Edale MRT – An afternoon shoot with a group of unsung HEROESMorning all I was very honoured to do the new team shot of Edale Mountain Rescue at the weekend. A wonderful bunch of guys who selflessly give up their free time and in some cases work time to attend call outs in all weathers to assist people in trouble, whether they be hill walkers, climbers, […]
- Hoglets PlayingHedgehogs – Why can’t they just share! I know a very bad joke, almost as bad as me saying the picture has hoglets playing on and around the mill stone, does look a little like them do doesn’t it?. So the weekend is almost here and the snow is slowly melting, must say the […]
- Don’t Worry It’ll Soon Be SummerThought we all needed a bit of a summer image to warm us up a little. The snow is falling outside and has been all night, we have 3-4 inches so far. The fur gang are playing in the garden and absolutely loving it, we’re just waiting for it to get light enough so we […]

- Porth Y Post Sunset Rays
Category Archives: Seascapes and Water
what a week of running round to get everything together for my Fellowship, checked and triple checked it’s now on its way to BIPP HQ a full week or so of the deadline for submission….I’m taking no chances with the weather and deliveries. It’s in the lap of the Gods as they say now, everything crossed.
Today’s picture from Porth Y Post, Anglesey. I’ll be heading there real soon, we deserve a rest and I certainly need to be in the sea again, puppies and Stormy need to run on a beach too so if only for them we’ll get off in a week or so.
Just been asked to do all this years event shoots for Barnsley Hospice which I have graciously accepted. They took great care of Richard my brother in law in his latter stages and battle with cancer so I can never really do enough for them.
Have a great weekend all
a massive thank you to those who have supported my move away from social media, really was getting ridiculous, I had loads of images stolen and the daily supply of upsetting images displayed by certain people and groups was very disturbing, time and a place and I’m afraid it was just too much.
All marketing will be done through this site now, I’m so pleased that trafic flow has quadrupled since the social media cut off and I haven’t even begun the campaign.
Today’s image is from Elgol, Skye looking across to the Cuillins with a claw of sea overlapping the foreground rocks, really was a beautiful evening….more to follow.
Happy Monday morning all, it’s nearly time for Santa and I hope you’ve all been good little boys and girls, some very lucky special people will be receiving prints bought from my website this year by loved ones. I’d like to say a very special thanks you to those who have bought this year and especially this month for Christmas gifts.
Today sees me in two frames of mind, VAT day this time of year should be banned but it’s a necessary evil that always make me feel ill before Christmas, on the other hand I’m setting up the new light and backdrop set up to do the doggies new Christmas pictures today or tomorrow so that will hopefully take my mind off the expenses going out, with any luck there will be enough to buy a small Turkey or Sparrow on Wednesday!.
In the meantime here’s another from the Skye trip, a bleak walk across the moors to the magical Fairy Pools near Glenbrittle at the foot of the Black Cuillin Mountains. Thought I’d try an unorthodox portrait version which I think works pretty OK, what do you think?
It was certainly a breezy day with sleet like rain whipping at our faces and very boggy underfoot, made for an interesting walk any ways.
Right on with the days task, hope you all have a great week.
A very good Thursday all, hope you are all bearing up well with the Weather Bomb! we’ve see plenty of rain over the last few days, now we’re hoping the white stuff will land by the weekend and stay till the new year (I know lots of you will hate it, but for a photographer with 4 Huskies it’s heaven sent)
On a serious note I’d like to thanks my friends and FB friends who out of their love of dogs and friendship bought packs of my husky puppy Christmas cards from me, we raised out of the sales and additional £76 which will be sent to the Soidog.org team in the new year. You may never know just how much you contribution will make to save dogs in Thailand from a horrible untimely death for the meat and fur trade so once again.
THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart, you are certainly my true friends and remarkable humans.
Mountain Rescue Christmas Cards are selling really well and again many thanks to all who have bought these, lets hope you never need the service but it’s fantastic should you ever need it, and remember it’s run by volunteers with big hearts.
Another from Skye this view from a different angle looking across the fall to the rock, we had to set up and wait between gale force winds and sleet like rain to get the shots so I’m very pleased with the outcome, would have been terrible to drive 500 miles and come back with nothing (there’s a song there somewhere).
We couldn’t believe having walked up the stream course in this horrendous weather and walking across boggy land that a couple of foreign lads followed us wearing jeans and trainers, they even stood in the stream to mimic my composition shots…..thinking to back to my Mountain Rescue days, these guys were bread and butter to create a necessity for a call out. They were however very concious of the fact that we were on a mission and moved every time we needed to get in position for a shot. Good lads.
Playing with the Profoto B1 500’s all day today, awesome kit, I can’t believe how clever they are, I mean TTL over 100m away….the mind boggles.
Black Friday!!!!! fffttt
Its a wonderful bright and glorious day, the weekend begins, OK so its raining and miserable here in Barnsley but who cares, some days you just got to thank your lucky stars.
Finally managed to sort out the new lighting system and sponsorship so orders going in today, fantastic deal on what is the best location lighting system out there, will be great with the band shoot and up and coming model shoots in The Peaks.
Today’s shot surprise surprise is Elgol …..AGAIN, I know but it just kept giving, beautiful sunset lighting up the Cuillins and foreground rocks as the waves lapped peacefully against the shore, a great place to think.
have a great weekend and avoid the torment of shopping and take you dog for a walk you’ll feel so much better instead.
To say we only spent a few short hours at Elgol I certainly reaped a great crop of images, saying that it will be a long time before we return such is the drive. Sunset skies over the Cuillins certainly drive home the intensity of the scars down the distant mountains.
Got more commissions to start doing research for, 3 new locations and a band wanting something a little bit different so will need an awesome location, one of which I have in mind and time permitting will scope out this weekend.
have a great day
Wet and windy Wednesday here in Yorkshire….so I thought a nice wet and windy shot from Skye would be in order.
This one from Elgol looking across to the Cuillin range, Elgol is on the shores of Loch Scavaig towards the end of the Strathaird peninsula.
This was the scene of our run in with the team of sheep and the shepherd photography teacher, looking back it was so funny and I could imagine a TV comedy about how the teacher herded his attendees round from location to location having run in after run in with jobbing photographers. We were crouched down next to the jetty wall on the left when this guy came storming down calling us ignorant blah blah blah, they were all lined up some 50m away to the left so we were only in shot if stood up, they were there 30-40mins we in turn took a mere 10mins, some people need to learn they don’t own these locations. We were again berated as we left by a full on Irish man, I did not have a clue what he was saying but with our patience run dry I informed him where best to go, he didn’t reply so I guess he got the message, the rest of the shoot was uneventful other than being stunningly beautiful………and breath!
Walking up to The Old Man of Storr on the beautiful Isle of Skye I had to take my now usual “fat boy” stop to catch my breath and as I turned to look back this is the view I was greeted with. Very Gothic in its appearance The Storr forms an imposing feature overlooking Portree.
The walk up is set as medium length and medium difficulty taking an hour and a bit to get somewhere near the area of this shot and certainly a lot quicker back down, quite steep in sections so not really for the unfit. It’s probably one of the busiest walks on Skye and although we were fairly early going up coming down there were hoards of visitors climbing up, the car park was overflowing and on covering the main road for quite some distance.
Certainly one of those places I would recommend visiting, the earlier in the day the better I think to avoid too many tourists.
Happy Monday all,
sun is shining and what a sunrise it was, pity I went to the gym after pooch walking otherwise I’d have been in The Peaks for a toggging session, yes I said Togging! thats before Pon says anything.
Another from Skye, Elgol looking across to The Cuillins as the sun set on our first night up there, got my feet wet but hey it’s worth it right? Still quite a lot to process so I think I have a great start to the book.
Be nice to have this weather all week.
