Biography – A new way.


We look, we watch, but we don’t see!

Had to pop back in to town to do some errands and I took my camera. I find it interesting that a lot of us don’t see what we look at. It’s like when we are driving, we are looking ahead, but do we really see what we are looking at? I have walked around Bath hundreds of times and have only realised how much I have missed. I am always in town to just get on with what I want to do, but now that I am taking my camera in every time, I have started to observe the people of Bath more closely. You should try it in your hometown and see what results you get.

Climbing in the Forest of Dean.


One of my career goals is to do Climbing photography or outdoor pursuits photography in general. So I got a call from a guy who is writing a guide for the Climbers Club in the Forest of Dean.

People of Bath

Carrying on from my last post, I headed back into Bath and walked round for two, visiting all the tourist hot spots such as the Circus, Royal Crescent and Abbey. They have provided some rich imagery on this fine sunny day.

Long Lens Candids

I have rediscovered my passion for long lens candid photography. Walking back from a Bath Life shoot near Queen’s Square, Bath, I stopped at the square itself and took some photos using a Canon 70-300mm lens that I have borrowed from a good friend of mine.

The lens has no IS so I had to be sure that I was shooting with a fast shutter speed to eliminate camera shake. So here are the results. Please let me know what you think.
