I write this in another hotel room. This time the Da’an Quarantine Facility in Taipei, which is/was a Howard Hotel. Think of a central London Travelodge in need of a refurb and you’ll pretty much imagine the scene. As the World hopefully emerges from a very strange 18 months I thought I’d do a gallery of some of my images taken between March 2020 and the present.Read More →

Hullo again, once again I find myself in quarantine in a hotel. This time it’s near Schiphol in The Netherlands seeing out the days so I can go back to Taiwan via Singapore. So with time on my hands I thought I’d revisit my website. Presently I’m pondering as to whether I should enter LPOTY again. I’m thinking I probably will. I count last years go as a resounding success. I didn’t win anything, didn’t even make the shortlist, but I did get 4 pics through the initial judging. Given lots of people don’t make it that far I’ll take the little victory! My newRead More →

Well it’s been awhile! I’m typing this from an isolation hotel in Taiwan so given I’ve got 14 days here, well about 10 left I have some time on my hands to catch up with a few things, my website being one of them. What’s happened photographically since my last post over 18 months ago? More of the same really. When I last wrote I was booked on a day out with Doug Chinnery and Valda Bailey. Well that never happened. There was some sort of inter-photo tour politics and it got cancelled. Well actually it wasn’t cancelled, however they were no longer taking theRead More →

After my failure with the PAGB my wife joked that she’d pay for me to have lessons so I could learn how to take a decent picture.  Then whilst away with work I started thinking about it a bit more.   In general and as I’ve mentioned before I’m fundamentally tight.  I’m also a little skeptical, maybe wrongly, of the quality of a lot of people offering photography tours and workshops.  Anyway after some very brief  consideration I’ve booked a day in London with two well respected photographers, Valda Bailey and Doug Chinnery.  They are both very well known internationally for abstract takes on scenesRead More →

So since getting the site running I’ve been to Dubai where I did very little photography, much less than I’d intended. ¬†Then came home and enjoyed Christmas and a couple of quite successful photographic early mornings in Plymouth. One down at Saltash Passage and one on the Hoe for storm Elenor. A couple of Dubai architecture shots that I was happy with and a few of the Tamar Bridges are in my new, New(ish) Pics section. ¬†Happy New Year!Read More →
