With temperatures dropping to 0C here in the Highlands and snow resting on the mountains the landscape is looking even more dramatic than it usually does. Which is saying something. Sometimes it’s worth getting actual exposure standing outside in freezing temperatures taking photos for fours hours… Well, if you have a photography addiction like meContinue reading “Frozen: December 2020”
I’ve decided to stop trying to sell my work. It’s fairly pointless and unrewarding at this stage. Completing a Masters was an amazing experience and very rewarding, yet it does not guarantee anything in terms of employment or success in a field of work. I’ve found it almost impossible to get any work either asContinue reading “Successes and failures”

This involved a flight from Italy (once flights were back up and running), driving from London to stay with my family in Derbyshire and rest, thenContinue reading “Scotland – Summer 2020”
After visiting this magical place the first time (see previous post) and finding I needed to revise my camera settings and pay more attention to the time of day I was shooting and the direction in which I was shooting the castle, we took a second trip into the mountains for a planned second shoot.Continue reading “Rocca Calascio Pt.

In the first week of phase 2 of lockdown in Italy, I headed out to try and find a castle. This is the place I found. I will definitely be heading back. What a magical place!
