Earth Hour 2011, 8.30pm, 26th March – tonight!

March 26, 2011

Just to let you know that Earth Hour 2011 is at 8.30pm today local time, Saturday 26th March.

The idea behind the global project, organised by the World Wildlife Fund, is to increase awareness of the growing problem of climate change and also for us to make a direct contribution to the reduction of CO2 emissions by switching-off lights (and other appliances too if you wish) for one hour from 8.30pm, local time.

Since the first Earth Hour in 2007, hundreds of millions of people across the planet have participated in 128 countries, as have landmark locations such as the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the Colosseum in Rome.

For further information of tonight’s event, please see the Earth Hour website at:

Interview in BIPP “The Photographer” Magazine

March 5, 2011

The British Institute of Professional Photography has just published an interview I recently had with Jonathan Briggs, the editor of the BIPP’s “The Photographer” magazine, on the challenges of fine art photography and how modern technology can be used to help the process of creating the images.

The 8-page article is illustrated with a range my photographs, including some from recent trips to the UK’s Lake District and western Scotland and also floral and animal images.

The interview can be read by clicking on the JPEG image below, which will open a new browser window.  Please then click on the open image to enlarge it to full size.
