After many months of working in the studio, I’m pleased to announce a new body of work today, featuring colour floral portraits. This new series is being launched through my new website, which also goes live today. It’s been a busy year!
In this digitally connected world, where a wide range of platforms are used to access the internet – from desktop PCs to tablets computers to mobile phones – I considered it to be very important that using my website and viewing the work be a user-friendly, content-rich experience, but still making sure that the emphasis is on the work.
I felt that after working on the more sombre black and white series Petalum, it was time to look at producing a series which could be seen as being the opposite in style and tone – light, airy and colourful. Considering that so much of my previous work has been in monochrome, I have to say that working in colour has been an enjoyable experience, but at the same time I’ve had to work at ensuring that colour didn’t take centre stage; I considered it to be an equal component of each image and that it shouldn’t overwhelm the other elements that comprised each study.
It’s my intention that this is the start of an ongoing series of colour floral studies, so more to come!
The blog you’re currently viewing has now been replaced by the News page on the new website, so this post will be the last entry on this blog. If you pay a visit to the new site and subscribe – via RSS, Facebook, Twitter and other social media – you’ll be the first to receive updates on my new work, exhibitions and all the other news.
Thanks for your interest and looking forward to seeing you over at the new website.

New photographs from my recent visit to the UK’s stunning Lake District and Scotland’s beautiful and rugged south-east coast will be online soon.
During the five-day trip I was accompanied by my wife and an old friend, who adventurously climbed a few of the local mountains along the well-worn paths to gain spectacular views from the summits or walk around the deep lakes, while I clambered over rocks along the rugged Scottish shorelines with my camera gear and tripod or made my way through the masses of vibrant green vegetation and deep forests in the Lake District. During the day we’d meet-up to enjoy the local food and swap stories of our excursions before crashing-out at the end of each day at the local B&Bs.
Here’s one of the images from the new work – the spectacular Stock Ghyll Force waterfall in the Lake District. The second photograph, taken by our companion Lindsay Vigor, gives a clue to the frequent weather conditions we had during the trip, with my wife helping-out with an umbrella on our last day in Scotland, at Portpatrick.

Late last Autumn, we visited Nova Scotia in Canada and during the three-week trip I had the opportunity to travel along and photograph some of the incredibly stunning coastline the province has. Having collected many images collected during visit, I’ve been working on compiling a new series of photographs, which I’ve now added to the website. As with all my Fine Art prints, they are printed onto the superb Hahnemühle Photo Rag paper.
Clicking on the image will take you straight to the new series’ page.
