Mesnes Park Wedding – Angela & Paul

Last weekend I got to meet up with Angela and Paul for their wedding at the lodge in Mesnes Park, Wigan. It was a scorcher of a day and the park was looking at its best when I met up with Paul and the boys for some pre-wedding pics. Angela and her brides maids arrived…

New York Aerial Photography

I finally fulfilled one of my bucket list items when I got chance to charter a doors off helicopter flight over New York. We had planned to do this back in 2016 but for one reason or another, it didn’t happen. So, when we booked our trip this year, this was top of my list…….

Abandoned London – Euston

Back in July, I had the chance to explore the abandoned parts of Euston underground station in London. This was a photography tour organised by the London Transport Museum and was a great opportunity to see another “ghost station” on the underground network. Whilst Euston is still very much an active station, there are parts…

Lancashire Manor Wedding – Nik & Rick

I had the pleasure of shooting Nichola & Rick’s wedding at Lancashire Manor Hotel near Skelmersdale on the day that storm Brian hit the UK. We had planned all sorts of photos of the bride and groom but the day was a complete wash out for outdoor photos so we had to make the most…

Another London Trip

Back at the beginning of July, I was in London again for a visit to the abandoned tunnels of Euston underground station. This was another excellent tour organised by the London Transport Museum and well worth a look at when they make more dates available. Anyway, that is for a future blog post as I…

20 Minute Manhattan Sunset

On this dull and chilly Easter Bank holiday Monday, I decided to have a look back through my photos from New York last August (when it was a lot warmer than today) and I came across a series of pictures I took of the sunset one evening over in Brooklyn, at the small park between…

Photography Week Magazine

Just a very quick update as one of my images from the trip to Birmingham is featured in this weeks Photography Week magazine. The pic is one of the Selfridges building and is a close cropped “minimalist” shot of the curves and bubbles on the side of the building. Check out the page and other…

First Drone Photo

This shot was taken a few weeks back. I recently purchased a drone to have a play about with, and have a go at some aerial photography. This is the Heinz factory in Wigan. Having lived in very close proximity to this for pretty much all my life, I had no idea of the actual…

Birmingham Photo Walk

Last weekend I headed down to Birmingham for a few hours exploring the city. With limited time, my first port of call was Milk Street, where there is an interesting set of arches in the railway viaduct which are occupied by various businesses. There are alsosome cool graffiti paintings on the walls and gates in…
