Strike a pose !

Strike a pose !

First off, let me say a big thankyou for stopping by

I really appreciate it !

Way back in 1985 was my first real dealings in photography, I had a zoom lens & used it on a Pentax ME Super 35mm film. The camera was owned by my dad & I just borrowed it when needed. Oh the fun, having to wait for the rolls of film to be developed only to find out that all were out of focus !

Then 1988 I attended college on a 2 year photography course with my tutor ( Ross Ditchburn ) who later became our wedding photographer.

I set up my own darkroom within my home, with the smell of chemicals drifting throughout ! ……. my girlfriend was less than impressed.

A family of my own soon followed & marriage, also travelling around the country competing in Kickboxing tournaments for England. All this meant my photography took a back seat for a number of years.

So here I am with my family in the northwest of England , living in the digital era of cameras & all that it brings. With instant uploads and the ability to check a photo & delete straight away !  So the basics remain, but a learning curve on the technology side of things is ongoing !

I have had Sony, Nikon, Canon & now Panasonic ( micro four thirds) . So not what you would call "brand loyal" kind of guy. For me the completed image is just a very small part of why I love photography, as being outdoors usually away from the crowds is my " reset" time. This includes wild camping , walking & family days out. The whole process I find very relaxing, being out, taking the shot, processing the shot & finally printing off the finished copy.

I have a very understanding wife ( Andrea) and our two boys Nathan & Brandon , who have to constantly wait for me to set up the tripod, compose an image etc etc..... I usually get left behind !

Thankyou & take it easy

Then edited with Polarr Pro editing software. Each image usually takes around 15-20mins to edit , then the jpeg copy is ready to print. I keep all "RAW" images backed up with an external drive.

Materials -

I use both Glossy/Ultra Glossy & Matte Epson paper 200g - each image covers approx. 90% of the paper leaving approx. 1” border ( where the image can be signed & numbered).


Shipping details -

Prints are then packaged within a glassine envelope, which are made from pure pine wood cellulose. This is 100% recyclable, acid free with no softeners.

This is then inserted within a hard backed envelope to protect the image & prevent bending.  I will also include a certificate of authenticity which is signed.


However - if you have any questions or would like me to assist in a project/event/occasion etc, please drop me an email & I will get back to you as soon as I can.
