Cullercoats

Captured one winter morning, not too early but freezing cold. Some of the birds had the right idea not to hang around!

Roker Pier

+

Roker Pier

A long exposure to isolate the curve of the pier.

Mouth of the Wear

+

Mouth of the Wear

Another wandering, capturing images from locations I’ve visited quite a few times, look at this journal upload for how the river has changed over the years.

Seaburn Beach

+

Seaburn Beach

Created with a 100mm E Series lens, check out this journal upload for the rest of the story.

The Blast

+

The Blast – Seaham

A stormy sky captured with an industar lens, if you venture over to the journal part of the site you’ll see my love of vintage lenses to create images organically, not just relying on a digital retouch.

+

Routing Linn

Always wanted to visit this location. It was my birthday this day, a nice little birthday present to me!

+

Cresswell Beach

A failed camping trip to create some star images with a “star tracker”. The weekend weather forecast wasn’t very accurate, so I amused myself with day time seascapes.

+

Loch Rannoch

Taken on a trip to Rannoch Moor, this was another road trip of about 650 miles. On a tech note, the biggest pain sometimes is waiting for the camera to write the file to the card. This dosen’t happen with film!

Barbed Wire Post

Can’t resist a bit of fog, as a photographer getting things sharp is the usual mode of working but fog changes colour/depth/texture. Amazing!

+

Silksworth Ski Slope

Another bit of fog, this time it’s the rear view of Silksworth Ski Slope, Sunderland. Not the obvious view, but the fog made this view possible.

TATB-Bamburgh

+

Bamburgh Castle

Part of a commission by Traveller and the Bear for Visit Northumberland. An “upbeat” image was created rather than my usual dark and moody!

+

Seaham Chemical Beach

Map reading comes in handy but in this case tide tables are a must for the seascape photographer. I didn’t get wet on this one, thank goodness!

+

Tynemouth Pool

Another winter trip to the coast, a bit of a minimalist study of the old outdoor pool.

+

South Stack Lighthouse

Decided on a different view for this one. Other visitors on the day seemed to go towards the lighthouse, I decided to do the opposite!

Roker Pier-2

+

Roker Pier

Decided on a different view for this one. Using the sand bank to break up the shoreline, another long exposure.

+

Dacre

A trip to the Lake District, trying to find images in locations other photographers might overlook, all part of the fun!

South Shields

+

Frenchmans Bay

There’s no such thing as the wrong light/weather, it’s usually, if you’re not wearing your waders you’re going to get wet feet!

Dunstanburgh Castle

+

Dunstanburgh Castle

As in the previous image, there’s no such thing as the wrong light/weather, it’s usually, if you’re not wearing your waders you’re going to get wet feet! The back story to this one is here!

+

Brimham Rocks

This trip was off the back of a job in York. Unfortunately, it was raining, but there’s no such thing as bad weather, it’s just weather!

+

Grangetown Beach

This image was awarded one of the best 50 images of the year by Fuji Film. Created on Fuji Velvia 50 with a 5×4 Walker Titan camera and a 65mm lens.

+

Saltburn Pier

Another image created off the back of a location shoot for British Steel. On this occasion I ruined a pair of new shoes by miss judging a wave and ended up knee deep in water, I just had to “keep calm and carried on shooting!”

+

Seaham Chemical Beach

This image was created with a rotational nodal point corrector (more commonly used for VR architectural interiors). A little tricky to use with the tide/wave moving back and forward.

+

Loch Ness

Took a chance on a visit to Loch Ness. The weather forecast was heavy snow, I got a little wrapped up in finding, then creating this image. Then the snow clouds appeared! Ended up with a very nervous drive back in the snow before the roads were closed.

+

The Groyne, South Shields

A different view of the Groyne at South Shields.

+

Tree, Trout Beck

Created for a boutique hotel in the Lake District. It was windy, very windy!

+

Olive Grove, Corfu

Couldn’t resist an image of the olive trees whilst on holiday in Corfu. Created with my travel favourite for photography, a Fuji X20.

+

Sycamore Gap

Yes, it’s that tree again, but usually not like this. Just had to try something a little different!

+

Cullercoats

Slightly different view from a previous image captured on a different day, but still freezing cold.

+

Glencoe

From a recent trip to Scotland, more info on the the Journal part of the site.

Glencoe

Another one from a recent trip to Scotland, more info on the the Journal part of the site.

+

Dunstanburgh Castle

Created for a residential development project in Northumberland. Needed to be prepared as all I got was about 20 minutes to take a couple of images.

+

Seaham Harbour

A long distant image created from about half a mile away with a 500mm mirror lens, it’s a four shot composite, find out more over on the Journal part of this site.

+

Loch Lowes

Another Scottish trip. This was created on the way from Dundee to Inverness. It could have been called a cavalier landscape ie. park up Vauxhall Cavalier, jump out, take shot, drive off again!

+

Seaham Chemical Beach

I like returning to the same location when it’s for personal images. This is another image created with a rotational nodal point corrector (more commonly used for VR architectural interiors). This time a wider lens is used.

+

Coal Board Foundations

Another image from the Seaham coast.

+

Steetley Pier

A trip to Steetley Pier near Hartlepool, for an alternate version and a bit of behind the scenes visit the Journal post.
