Recent photography – new galleries!

Much of the photography I’ve been working on over the past few months is now starting to look like a coherent package of work, instead of just a tangled collection of shots.

Basically, it all fits into two projects, both of them upcoming books. The first is rather tourism-related and is for my next book, Beautiful Devon, a book about just that county, and which will be published next spring.
The second is some fairly random wildlife photography targeted for what is intended to be the next book in the Wild series – scheduled to be Wild South – if and when we decide that Wild Southwest has been a success.
 
I’m in danger of starting to ramble here, but the upshot is that I’ve finally put together two collections of sample images (rather small samples) onto the website, and you can see them by clicking the link below:
 
To whet your appetite, a micro-sample of the images is included here…. I hope you enjoy.

Photography courses for the autumn

My programme of spring and early summer photography courses has now finished, but my autumn events will be starting up in September.

Apart from the Iceland photo tour in late September, I also have four one-day courses, all taking place in southwest England, mostly Devon, and mostly concentrating on landscape photography.

One of the four courses – Jurassic Coast Landscapes, at Lyme Regis on 7th October – is already full, but I still have spaces on the other three, so here are some details:

Atlantic Coast Landscapes

9th Sept 2017; Hartland Quay, north Devon

We’ll be photographing along the rugged cliffs and beaches at and near Hartland Quay, on Devon’s rugged north coast, near Bideford. Subject matter will include the sand and rocks of the shoreline, plus at least one of the several waterfalls that cascade down the cliffs right onto the beaches.

Exmoor in Autumn

21st Oct 2017; Lynton and Lynmouth, north Devon

This course takes in the rugged coastal landscapes of the Valley of Rocks as well as the deep valley woodlands and streams of Watersmeet, two beautiful locations around the Exmoor towns of Lynton and Lynmouth.

Dartmoor in Autumn

28th Oct 2017; Fingle Bridge and Gidleigh Common, Dartmoor, Devon

In this course we’ll be photographing the autumn colours in the woods that line the River Teign close to Fingle Bridge, in the northeast of the moor, followed by some open moorland photography around Scorhill stone circle and the marshes of the upper Teign.

Iceland photography tour

21-26th Sept 2017, Reykjavik and the Snaefellsnes peninsula (Iceland west coast)

Photography of the rugged volcanic landscapes of this wild peninsula, including the iconic Mt Kirkjufell and its nearby waterfalls, as well as – hopefully – the Northern Lights. We still have a couple of spaces, so if you’re interested in coming click on the link below.
