Landscapes of the North


After about 25 years of happy snapping I thought it was about time to put together a book collection of some of my favourite images. I have filing cabinets full of them so it's taken a while to choose, but it's been a lot of fun and brought back a host of fond memories. Only £4.99 for an ebook for your iphone or tablet. If you fancy having a look here's the preview.

Scotland Revisited


Recently back from another trip to the Scottish Highlands. Can't stay away from the place. This time it was a 1,000 mile tour of areas I'd visited in the past but wanted to get to know a bit better. As usual the weather was very mixed, but if you don't try you don't get!

We had a couple of nights in Ullapool for trips to the far north then worked our way back through the Torridons to Kintail, Fort William, Glencoe, Oban, Inverary, Loch Lomond and Moffat in the borders. McPhew!

Classic Northumberland


Just back from a 5 day photoshoot in Northumberland. We based ourselves in Seahouses and visited all of the iconic locations in the area. At both Lindisfarne Castle and on the rocks at Craster I got into conversations with two fellow photographers. The first had travelled up from Manchester and the second from Stockport. They both love the Northumberland coast and were dead jealous when I said I could get there in about an hour. When you think about the efforts they had made to get there for a few hours shooting it makes you realise that we don't always fully appreciate what we have on our own doorsteps. Hopefully some of these shots will help...

Isle of Skye


They don't call Skye 'The Misty Isle' for nothing. We recently spent 6 nights up there and covered about 500 miles, mainly on single track roads back and forth from the peninsulas. It was a bit like mountaineering in a camper van! There can't be much of Skye we haven't seen now but each time we return it's different. Unless you're unlucky enough to be stuck under a static weather front, the beauty of this part of the world is the constantly changing light and elements. If you're careful about when you visit you won't even be bothered by the midges. Oh, and did I mention Skye has its own distillery at Talisker?
