What I do

Photography

I enjoy taking photographs. If you have an occasion, an event or a location that you would like photographed I would be delighted to help.

Maybe you’d like to capture a moment with friends or family with some natural and informal images. I’m open to ideas.

I have worked with web site design and media specialists to provide promotional images for restaurants, pubs., holiday cottages, hotels, B&B’s and guest houses. Photographs provide an insight into the style and features of an establishment. The images need to give potential customers and clients something that attracts, informs comparison and with an impactive website showcases the brand and makes a persuasive impression.

What I can provide

Photo enhancement

Many people have photographs in shoe-boxes, in drawers, frames or albums that have suffered the test of time. Using a proficiency in imaging software, I would be pleased to give these images a new lease of life, so that a cherished photo can rekindle memories and be proudly published or displayed.

Photobooks

You might prefer your selection of images from an event, location or get-together in more tangible form. I can arrange the publication of photobooks using photos you provide or from those I have taken.

Slideshows

A selection of images from an event, location or get-together often look better and capture the spirit and the moment in the form of a slideshow. I can produce very professional slideshows using the latest software, either from images you provide or from photographs I have taken, and publish them in the format that best suits your needs for sharing.

An Image Portfolio

I have clicked away over the years in various locations in the UK and around the world. A few sample photos are in the gallery. If you are after a print to put on your wall, I might have something you’d like, so get in touch and we can discuss your requirements.

Would you like to get in touch or look at some images ?

Keep a look out for galleries featuring images from South Africa and Australia

A number of trips to Kruger National Park in South Africa understandably result in quite a collection of photographs. A trip to Western Australia, visiting Perth and the fabulous wine producing region of Margaret River in 2019 and a trip to Melbourne in 2020 (for the Australian Open Tennis....and more wine) mean that galleries have a  habit of growing.... so keep watching.

A slideshow of Images from our Kapama Game Drives

I love making slideshows. It's a great way to display a set of images, include background music, and then share the show. So here's a selection of my photographs from our 2019 trip to Kapama Private Game Reserve. Given the abundance of wildlife, the skills of the rangers and trackers, the beauty of the surroundings and the natural African light it was too easy to keep clicking away. The trickier bit was to limit the number of images in the show so that it gave a flavour of the experience without being too long! I hope you enjoy thisshow and are inspired to enjoy the experience for yourself ( or even buy a copy of an image !)
And, as if to confirm our love of the place, we made a return visit to Kapama in February 2020. A slideshow of photos from that trip can be seen in the South Africa blog

Sydney is a fabulous city

I have been looking through all the photographs taken during our trip to New Zealand and it was evident that even though our stay in Sydney was only five days, it’s no great surprise that such a fabulous place resulted in quite an image bank of its own.You can now view the gallery of a few images and there are also links on my blog "Another trip to Sydney would be a great idea" to slideshows featuring Sydney, the NSW Art Gallery, and visits to Bondi and Manly.

 

New Zealand is a captivating place

The cameras were active as there was so much to see, and do, and record. So I’ve got lots of photographs and reviewing and selecting images continues.  The Country is so amazing and being on a road trip visiting so many locations, it will come as no surprise that I’ve got my work cut out to edit the selection for a gallery and for slideshows. Please visit this site regularly to check for updates.

Visits to photogenic Italy means that this gallery continues to grow

People who know me and visitors to my website will be aware that we have a love for Italy, and we are lucky enough to make frequent trips to enjoy the sites, sights, landscape, culture, people, food and wine of that amazing Country, notably the region of Tuscany. Annual visits to Tuscany to our beloved Castellina-in-Chianti have been a habit we don't intend to break

The Italy gallery has regular shake ups and some memorable images. So, keep checking in to see what’s new.

More photographs from captivating Chatsworth

Frequent visits to Derbyshire and captivating Chatsworth also mean that the gallery of photographs from this place continues to grow. You can view slideshows via my blogs and galleries relating to events such as the Horse Trials and the Country Fair, In addition have a look at my "postcards" of the magnificent house and estate, and my slideshow of colourful images captured during some glorious Autumn days walking around the Outside Sculpture Exhibition.

Shades of Grey ~ Contrast and vibrance in Black & White

I also enjoy creating images in magical monochrome. My gallery of Black & White images from a range of locations and using a variety of techniques continues to evolve. I particularly like reintroducing a signature colour back into an image to accentuate the subject or the theme. 

A slideshow from our Dubai trip

During our visit to the Burj Khalifa in Dubai we attended the "50 Years of Bond Style" exhibition, that was fortunately taking place that month.
I took a few photos of some of the iconic images and items in the display and it seemed like a good idea to make a slideshow of my photos.
This was something I enjoyed doing given the fact that I've been a Bond fan all my movie-going life and also because I love making slideshows. It's a great way to display a set of images, include background music, and then share the show. I find this medium works well for the reportage images from weddings, and I've also used it with photographs from Game Drives ( another passion of mine).

There's even an online shop

There is now an online shop on this site where it is possible to purchase certain products and services. You can contact me using the contact form to confirm order requirements. I also look forward to hearing from you if you would like to discuss specific photo requirements and commissions or if you have any comments.

I ALSO LIKE TO WRITE A BLOG OR TWO AND I’D BE DELIGHTED TO HEAR FROM YOU

Thoughts on time and application in challenging times

I’ve had time to do some things. This note started life as an idea to write about something I’ve managed to do (and enjoy doing) by having the time to expand and apply some skills in creating another slideshow of my photographs. This note has expanded, with time. There is a feeling of contentment when you have time to do something that exercises your creativity. This is especially the case when it is something that you might not have progressed when being stifled by other time pressures, priorities or even lack of inclination. Spending time doing stuff that had previously […]

A return trip to South Africa

It will come as no surprise to followers of this site and of my proclivities that a return to Kapama Private Game Reserve in South Africa was extremely likely. Well in February 2020, and in fact only 10 months after our 2019 visit, we were back to enjoy the sights, sounds and hospitality of this fabulous place. Inevitably there is a new set of photographs and a selection will be included in the website galleries very soon. It is also intended to prepare a new slideshow, or maybe a revamp of the previous show to augment the images with a […]

Brochures and printed promotional material

In preparation for an event I set about preparing an updated tri-fold brochure. I enjoyed the process and, as you will be aware, I also enjoy making a Slideshow. So, with apparently shameless self-aggrandisement I created a double-whammy of a promotional slideshow promoting some printed promotional material 😊. It’s been a while since I had produced any printed promotional literature, as was evident when I went to my cupboard to find any of my old brochures and realised that it was time to create an update. There was a need for fresh material, more recent images, updated logos and tag-lines, […]
