Living France magazine

August 14th, 2011

Just a quick post (after that lengthy last one!) about an image. Discovered a nice cover image sale to Living France magazine a couple of days ago. It’s a shot of Monflanquin, a small medieval town in the Lot region of South West France. Taken in the heat of the day in mid-August you can feel the sunshine bouncing off the page!

As a stock photographer I am used to sales of every kind (thankfully) but it still raises a smile to see a cover image pop up in the sales data and to get to see how the typography has been applied. Read the rest of this entry »

A few images from today’s very wet Tour de France stage 4. Shot at Mellionec a small village about 15km away from me. I’m not a sports photographer by any means and I have utmost respect for those who are!  Here are ten images (scroll down to see all) from the day. Shot for fun only, I’m allowed a day off now and then… Enjoy. Read the rest of this entry »

A few iPhone images from a recent trip to the very south of Morbihan, Bretagne. A thin strip of land extending south from Brittany known as the Quiberon Peninsula.

Recent landscape additions

I don’t get much chance to shoot Landscape.  That’s a shame because there’s nothing quite like picking your spot and waiting for the light. Read the rest of this entry »

It’s a Gas…

January 25th, 2009

Every now and then I’m lucky enough to get a commission that really appeals to the 7 year old boy that is deep within the psyche of all adult men.  The sort of excitement that is aroused by miles and miles of pipes and dials and shiny metal and flashing lights, not to forget the machine that goes “ping”.

Ready Freddie go…

August 3rd, 2008

Just to prove the weathermen wrong I had glorious weather for a recent shoot with England cricket saviour, Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff.   The location was Old Trafford,  Lancashire Cricket Club, and I was on a commission from Spin magazine to shoot some portraits of Freddie while he was working his way back to fitness from a recent injury.

Mr Manchester…
