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…

Fairy Glen Engagement Shoot – Nichola & Rik

Last weekend I met up with Nichola & Rik at Fairy Glen, which is just at the bottom of Parbold Hill for their pre-wedding photo session. Fairy Glen is a local beauty spot between Appley Bridge & Parbold and has some great places to explore, as well as some impressive waterfalls…. We spent about an…

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…

A Quick Night Shoot in London

I managed to grab literally an hour on a recent trip to London to get some night shots around Tower Bridge and City Hall. We started off at Nandos for a refuel and then had a quick walk down to Southwark Bridge where I shot this pic with St. Paul’s Cathedral in the background. It…

Southport Fireworks 2016

So that time of year arrived again last weekend when I got to shoot the amazing Southport Musical Fireworks Championships. It’s becoming a bit of an annual event now for me and I went over to shoot the Friday and Saturday shows this year. Now located in Victoria park, there are 2 displays on the…

Combermere Abbey Wedding – Kelsie & Chris

It was the hottest and sunniest day in August, which is unusual here in the UK for a bank holiday, but Kelsie & Chris picked a scorcher of a day to tie the knot at the gorgeous Combermere Abbey, on the outskirts of Whitchurch, Shropshire. The day started with Kelsie and her brides maids getting…

Brooklyn Bridge Morning Commuter

It’s been almost 3 months since my last blog post – the summer has been and gone in a heartbeat and it seems like so much has happened in the last few weeks. This is the first post from our New York trip in mid August – tons of photos to work as well as…

Media City – ND1000

I have been itching to have a go at some daytime long exposure pics using an ND1000 10 stop filter for what seems like ages. Every time I have planned to give it a try, the good old British weather has let me down. I was over at Salford Quays again today doing a bit…
