Cullercoats

Captured one winter morning, not too early but freezing cold. Some of the birds had the right idea not to hang around!

+

Routing Linn

Always wanted to visit this location. It was my birthday this day, a nice little birthday present to me!

+

Cresswell Beach

A failed camping trip to create some star images with a “star tracker”. The weekend weather forecast wasn’t very accurate, so I amused myself with day time seascapes.

+

Loch Rannoch

Taken on a trip to Rannoch Moor, this was another road trip of about 650 miles. On a tech note, the biggest pain sometimes is waiting for the camera to write the file to the card. This dosen’t happen with film!

+

Barbed Wire Post

Can’t resist a bit of fog, as a photographer getting things sharp is the usual mode of working but fog changes colour/depth/texture. Amazing!

+

Silksworth Ski Slope

Another bit of fog, this time it’s the rear view of Silksworth Ski Slope, Sunderland. Not the obvious view, but the fog made this view possible.

+

Seaham Chemical Beach

Map reading comes in handy but in this case tide tables are a must for the seascape photographer. I didn’t get wet on this one, thank goodness!

+

Tynemouth Pool

Another winter trip to the coast, a bit of a minimalist study of the old outdoor pool.

+

South Stack Lighthouse

Decided on a different view for this one. Other visitors on the day seemed to go towards the lighthouse, I decided to do the opposite!

+

Dacre

A trip to the Lake District, trying to find images in locations other photographers might overlook, all part of the fun!

+

Brimham Rocks

This trip was off the back of a job in York. Unfortunately, it was raining, but there’s no such thing as bad weather, it’s just weather!

+

Grangetown Beach

This image was awarded one of the best 50 images of the year by Fuji Film. Created on Fuji Velvia 50 with a 5×4 Walker Titan camera and a 65mm lens.

+

Saltburn Pier

Another image created off the back of a location shoot for British Steel. On this occasion I ruined a pair of new shoes by miss judging a wave and ended up knee deep in water, I just had to “keep calm and carried on shooting!”

+

Seaham Chemical Beach

This image was created with a rotational nodal point corrector (more commonly used for VR architectural interiors). A little tricky to use with the tide/wave moving back and forward.

+

Loch Ness

Took a chance on a visit to Loch Ness. The weather forecast was heavy snow, I got a little wrapped up in finding, then creating this image. Then the snow clouds appeared! Ended up with a very nervous drive back in the snow before the roads were closed.

+

The Groyne, South Shields

A different view of the Groyne at South Shields.

+

Tree, Trout Beck

Created for a boutique hotel in the Lake District. It was windy, very windy!

+

Olive Grove, Corfu

Couldn’t resist an image of the olive trees whilst on holiday in Corfu. Created with my travel favourite for photography, a Fuji X20.

+

Sycamore Gap

Yes, it’s that tree again, but usually not like this. Just had to try something a little different!

+

Cullercoats

Slightly different view from a previous image captured on a different day, but still freezing cold.

+

Glencoe

From a recent trip to Scotland, more info on the the Journal part of the site.

Glencoe

Another one from a recent trip to Scotland, more info on the the Journal part of the site.

+

Dunstanburgh Castle

Created for a residential development project in Northumberland. Needed to be prepared as all I got was about 20 minutes to take a couple of images.

+

Borrowdale Valley

Another trip to the Lake District.

+

Loch Lowes

Another Scottish trip. This was created on the way from Dundee to Inverness. It could have been called a cavalier landscape ie. park up Vauxhall Cavalier, jump out, take shot, drive off again!

+

Seaham Chemical Beach

I like returning to the same location when it’s for personal images. This is another image created with a rotational nodal point corrector (more commonly used for VR architectural interiors). This time a wider lens is used.

+

Coal Board Foundations

Another image from the Seaham coast.

+

Steetley Pier

A trip to Steetley Pier near Hartlepool, for an alternate version and a bit of behind the scenes visit the Journal post.
