Bath in Black and White

I took these photographs last year for an exhibition in Milsom Place, formerly known as Shire’s Yard. I was trawling through my archives of blog posts and didn’t have these posted. I feel that they deserve a post as these photographs were very popular with the locals. Enjoy!

Meet The Moment Slogan Help!

Carrying on from the Cliff Bar Meet the Moment competition, I have 3 more pics I want to enter as an ‘Adventure Postcard’, but could do with your help with the slogan.

Please bear in mind the space and how your text fits in it. Anything you can think of will be considered, but keep it clean please. For a peek at the my latest entry click here. If I do use your slogan you will be duly credited in the notes section when I submit it.

Here are the photos – just leave a comment starting with either Photo 1, Photo 2 or Photo 3, so I know which one it applies to.

Look forward to your answers.

Meet The Moment

I have just entered a competition run by Cliff Bar. A fab opportunity to win big and to do that adventure you have always dreamed of doing.There are loads of entries so winning will be tough, but I’m confident!

I was inspired to do it when I was checking up on Michael Clark Photography and saw his entry. (Its an awesome entry!)

So here is my entry. I will be entering a few more but the hardest part is the slogan. It has to fit with the photograph and the ethos of what Cliff Bar are trying to promote.


Cotswold Airshow 2011 – aka Kemble

Father’s Day was happily spent with my dad at the Kemble airshow. A spectacle of roaring engines and sultry acrobatics. One day I will be up there with them taking the photos, but for now I had my feet firmly planted on the ground with the lens pointed up. I wanted to keep away from the classic shots of the plane filling the frame against the sky. This way you can great details of the plane but I wanted to put things into perspective. The planes were flying low and the crowds were in awe. We had the last ever UK public display by the DC3 and the 60th anniversary of the Hawker Hunter. So I hope you enjoy them!

An Enthusiast

Kingswood School, Bath – Green Park Station gig!

It has taken me awhile to get this photos sorted and blogged but they are here…finally!

Kingswood School, Bath opened the Bath Music festival a few weeks back and they did a sterling performance. The floor was packed and the atmosphere was joyous.


Aerial Fashion Shoot

I was asked to shoot a clothes line for a fashion student at the University of Wales Newport (my old university). She wanted it to stand out from the rest of the students. She had seen my previous work with Elena Marina that I had photographed at the disused mine shaft and she asked me if I could do all that, but with six different garments. “Of course I can!” So after two shoots and a sewn through finger (not mine thankfully) I can now present the final results.
