New cover photo!

Finally, a bit of sunshine! A few days ago I was out grabbing a few shots for the next book, so here’s one that’s already nabbed the heady status of front cover shot. It shows sunset over the Teign estuary, seen from Shaldon bridge, in south Devon and just a few minutes’ drive from my home.

And the book? Oh yes, we’ll tell you more about that soon…. But it will be great. Just waiting for a completely green light to go ahead.

Winning at the International Color Awards!!

At the highly prestigious annual International Color Awards (now in its 10th year), held in Beverly Hills, LA, last week, I was once again a winner, the third successive year that I’ve been honoured at the ICA.

With entries from both professional and amateur photographers from 75 countries, competition was tough, but I achieved ‘Honorable Mention’ awards for two images; Harbour Reflection, in the Abstract category, and Museum Wall in the Architecture category.

Harbour Reflection.

I also received nominations for two further images, in the Abstract and Nature categories, but these two did not go on to win.

Museum Wall.

The overall winners of the Awards were Romina Ressia of Argentina, who was crowned International Color Photographer of the Year among the professionals, and Dalibor Talajic of Croatia among the amateurs.

My winning images are shown here. You can see more about the International Color Awards by going to www.colorawards.com. The winners’ gallery will be viewable on their website from 20th March.

 

New Turks and Caicos shoot

I’ve just returned home from what was essentially a holiday in Turks and Caicos, a cluster of islands in the Caribbean. Actually, of course, you can’t separate a photographer from his camera for too long – sometimes I think I walk with a limp when I don’t have my camera!

Grace Bay, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos.

So, I’ve come back with a collection of images that should make some of the photo libraries I supply quite happy. They consist of some classic tropical travel images – azure seas, blindingly white sand etc.
