Image of the week

I’m starting to post a series of images which are the favourite I’ve taken in the previous week. Here’s the one for the week ending 20th April. This was taken at Oulton Park on a race experience day. How fortuitous that they parked three Renault Clio Cup cars in a lovely row like this!

Wirral Spring Art and Photography Exhibition

I’m pleased to say that two of my images, ‘Sunset At The Marine Lake’ and ‘The Navel Stone’ have been selected for display in the Wirral Spring Art and Photography Exhibition which is held at the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead. The exhibition runs from Saturday 26th April to Sunday 1st June, open Tuesday to ...

Dilution of Trust

This morning on my way to work I heard a report on The Today Programme about Michael Grade speaking to the Royal Television Society about the current state of affairs in the TV industry. After the recent scandals regarding premium-rate telephone lines and actors appearing on daytime chat-shows, he warned the industry not to ‘dilute ...

Wirral Photographs in Dee Fine Arts

I’m really pleased to let you all know that as from the 9th of July, my photographs will be available to buy through Dee Fine Arts in Heswall. I’m really pleased to be able to offer my work for sale through such a reknowned establishment.

Hello, old friend.

On Wednesday night I went out to shoot my comparison between ‘Old’ Velvia 50 and ‘New’. Fuji sent me a roll of 120 film, so, for the first time in about 2 years I pulled out my Bronica SQ-Ai. I shot with the Bronica for about 3 years, and came to be very ‘at home’ ...

Safari on Windows!

Whenever I make a change to my website I end up pinging one of my Mac-wielding friends over MSN and asking them to check ‘if it looks right in Safari’. Well, today at the Apple WWDC, St. Eve announced that Apple were to launch Safari for Windows, so I can now check the layout in ...

Confusion of Scale 2

How big is the stone in this image? Whilst one may make an educated guess, there’s nothing concrete to allow you to form any conclusions as to absolute scale. In many ways I feel that this adds to a photograph, as it creates a sense of wonder, and makes the viewer contemplate the scene and ...

Reintroduced Velvia 50

I recently received from Fuji UK a promotional roll of the re-introduced Velvia 50 and its associated datasheet. Well, from inspection of the datasheet the characteristics of the film look identical. The code is still RVP, it’s still called Velvia (not Velvia II), and the sheet film notch-code is still the same. I’m really hopefull ...

Desert Sands – a photograph of Hoylake 1

There are few places on The Wirral where the bedrock is exposed along the coast. Hilbre Point, just a short distance from the centre of Hoylake is one of these locations. I’m attracted to the form and shapes in these rocks, the weathered strata exposing geological information preserved millions of years ago. In the case ...
