A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be allowed to Photograph the annual sheep shearing at one of the farms in the beautiful valley of Borrowdale. As far as I can remember it's the first time I've ever witnessed this mass clipping anywhere in my lifetime.

The sheep had...

For me filters are an essential tool for my Landscape Photography and I have been a Lee filter user now for a good few years. Initially I bought some of the cheaper brands but quickly came to the conclusion that they were just not up to the job, especially when stackin...

Summer, it's never my favourite time of year for photography and my enthusiasm takes a nose dive around the middle of May and starts to return somewhere around October, just as the weather starts to change and the colours return to the fells. The Lakes take on a look o...

I was approached around two years ago now to be a Snapp Pro for the Lake District, for this I needed to research and photograph the iconic and little known locations within the Lakes. From the start the project excited me, what could be better than having all those loc...

I haven't been out a great deal lately for a combination of reasons, it's summer, sunrise is way too early, everywhere is green and the newish puppy needs lots of attention still. Tuesday saw a trip to one of my favourite haunts in Tewet Tarn, for an overnighter in the...

Photography can be a very hit and miss affair, or if you like, there's an element of luck involved in capturing that amazing image that you're after. First there's knowing that location, how to find it and what's the best time to visit (month, morning, daytime or eveni...

I must admit that I'm partial to using long exposures techniques and love the way that they can transform an image through the passage of time. Below you will see a number of images of the same scene taken at different shutter speed from 1/15th of a second through to 2...
