Out of the office…

September 21st, 2010

And lo, it came to pass that the photographer known to his followers as ‘Jon’ did leave the barren wet and windy wilderness of the northern England and did travel south towards the sun on a mighty journey of discovery and perhaps a bottle of wine or two along the way, we shall see ;)Read the rest of this entry »

My good friend Cameron Davidson asked me recently to splurge out some thoughts on UK stock photography for a guest blogging spot over at his place.  So I did. Here:

Zen and the art of UK Stock Photography

He’s found my missing “h” too – well done Cameron!

Happy New Year to all…

January 2nd, 2009

A belated Happy New Year to everyone I know (and those I don’t yet know but may be getting to know in 2009…er…best stop before I get myself further into any Rumsfeldisms).   Its cold.  I hate the cold.  Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve just had a pretty whirlwind couple of weeks. Having not been to a wedding for about 10 years, last week saw me at not one, but two. Six days apart and both in the south.

Welcome to the blog.

I’m sure it will develop a theme as it goes along but initially I thought I’d show some images that are favourites and talk about how they came about.

I think the RSS feed is working though so please subscribe and keep up with my updates.

Until later……
