  • What is this Orchid.....?

Love Notes
  • Love Notes

  • This month the world will drown in hearts: plastic, chocolate, card or otherwise. That may sound cynical, and it probably is. I love love, I actually love loving. To love and to be loved are the most amazing experiences, they complete the circles of unfulfillment that most experience. Love isn't [...]

  • Happy New Year 2014!

  • We are fourteen days in and I am still in Christmas mode...... eating chocolates, reading books and sitting by the fire eating chocolates and reading books.

Why Photography?
  • Why Photography?

  • From a very early age, I loved to create. Academically, art was not my strong point. I could never stay within the constraints of the lesson. My mind would wander off and create, further than my teacher wished to go. My earliest memory of being artful was making a swan using rolled up bits of tissu[...]
  • Google+

  • The creative side of photography is naturally the part that I enjoy most. Just simply experiencing places and atmospheres, the emotion they provoke and the inspiration they provide and using my camera to convey this. There is also a social side to being a photographer, not the networking or clien[...]
The industrial estate in winter.
  • The industrial estate in winter.

  • The thing that I never set out to do, is produce a set of images from the same location with the same style of processing. This is not down to anything other than I like to treat each image as an individual piece, I do this from the start, in my mind when I take the photograph. Part of the enjoyment[...]

Not another photography blog.....
  • Not another photography blog.....

  • Why blog? It's a question that I have asked myself over and over for the past year, I want to blog but why! I am on various social media platforms, regularly sharing new images with a few words, so why isn't this enough? The answer for me is simple, the main interaction I have with followers of my[...]
