Fall colours

I know that it’s almost spring time, (yes, roll on the warmer weather!) but I wanted to show you a couple of images I took in the fall, (that’s autumn to the Brits), in Colorado. The sharp blue and green of the grass reflected in a pool of water in a...

Wonderful Windsor Fair

So the Windsor Contemporary art fair was excellent despite the terrible weather. I had a stand in a very good position near the main entrance and this meant that people mostly didn’t march past without looking. My new work presented on acrylics went down well...

Catching the last boat

I have lots to say about boats, as you’ll see. This is the last of the series of new watery images which will be shown on my stand at the Windsor Contemporary Art Fair on November 10th and 11th. This is a close up of the bow of a decaying boat in a boat yard on...

Jolly Boating weather!

By now you’ll be used to my passion for black and white photography, but sometimes the colour is too important to lose. This lovely little boat floating unattended in a bend of the river is a good case in point. Mind you, it also features my very favourite type...

I’m often asked about how to wear a scarf. Well there are books, videos and all all sorts of information on this to be had. I have to admit I generally go for simplicity, as I am not a fussy dresser, and I don’t have lots of luxuriant hair which makes it...

Filmstar

I’m attaching a short film of me photographing a horse so I can show you something about me that might be of interest. I was lucky enough to be able to photograph Snip, a most obliging horse, who looks great in the film. You can see how well he behaves even with...

It’s raining new horsey gift ideas!

Whenever I go to an exhibition at one of the London galleries, I always seem to end up in the gift shop. I find the goods that reflect the content of the exhibition very enticing! Recently I saw an exhibition of David Hockney’s South Yorkshire images, which was really...
