I found this shot sitting in my archives, it was taken last year at Goodwood. The 'Goodwood festival of speed' is an annual hill climb held a Goodwood park and features sports cars from multiple generations and genres.

Sitting in front of the stately home, this amazing structure, constructed from girders with Landrovers mounted on them was a sight to behold, it has a really surreal quality to it, an angular monolith.

One more shot from the Morocco street scenes. I don't have masses to say about this one. I probably have one more shot to post from the series and then onto something new.

I've been adding ( a long overdue) feature to the site, so it is now possible to purchase prints. I will gradually be updating and adding some new galleries.

Lastly , I hope the British summer kicks in soon, it's been raining everyday for a week and I'd like to go out and get some new shots!

A bit of archive raiding tonight, I haven't got any new images to post at the moment, or the ones I do have aren't quite ready to go onto the site :-)

I've been working at home in my new role for the last 4 weeks and you'd expect that I'd have more time to shoot. As it turns out , starting a company is , like everyone says, hard work! But very rewarding all the same.

For those that haven't been to Morocco , this sort of scene is common place, people just chill out and relax , a world a way from the Western world!

This is one of the shots from the foggy series I had shot a couple of weeks ago now.These are taken at the same burnt common spot I have posted images of previously, here and here.

I knew I'd want to go and shoot this place when the fog came in, it had a really eery feeling with the mist and barren landscape.

Apologies for the sporadic posting, I've been super busy with one thing or another , but got out and shot new material today. I aiming to get back to posting everyday again in the next week. Thanks to everyone who's been stopping by in the last few days, I'll try to visit your sites and give some feedback tomorrow :-)

I'm feeling like posting some abstract-ish subjects and have been trying something a little experimental recently, this shot was taken at a seminar I attended today. The room I was in, awash with sunlight, made a perfect shooting opportunity, and this gentlements head, smooth , set against the suede, caught my attention. I'm drawn to the textures.

Lastly, i'm going to start posting my images a little bigger, as I figure in this day in age , most people have 1000 pixel plus monitors. I will probably code the page to display the smaller resolution, but until then, let me know if you have problems viewing the images at this size, or if you have to scroll excessively.

O.k. :-) Back to posting once a day!

Hello again, i'm back, apologies for not posting the last few days , I've been busy with work and house stuff! Anyway, as it's late , I'll keep it short tonight.

This is one of the shots I took last week in the fog of which I'd been promising to post. So here it is.

Thanks to everyone on the feedback on the last picture,I know that style is not to everyones taste, but I enjoy the experimentation, it's good to hear different reactions.

This one is from a Moroccan street market or Sook(sic?), and was taken on Christmas day, the year before last. Added to the excitement of taking pictures in Morocco , is the fact that people really don't like having their pictures taken there, so getting good candid portraits is hard, you have to be super discreet or pretend your not taking pictures at all, by looking one way ,whilst taking a picture with the camera pointing another.

Although this isn't a portrait, If I remember correctly it was one of those shots, with camera pointed down clicking away.I'm not much of a fish eater either, but I believe these are freshly caught sardines, maybe someone will be along who can put me right :-P

I had hoped to post a colour version of the forest shot, Radiant #1 today, but we were out longer than expected and so it isn't quite ready, so it's back to Prague airport for one more time. As with the other airport shots it was shot through glass, and so is not super sharp.

What attracted me to this picture is the flow of the lines through the frame and the isolated baggage truck tucked way up in the corner, it has a starkness that I find attractive.

Hopefully i'll get back to the forest shots tomorrow, but for now.....

This old style bike caught my attention whilst walking through the market street and lanes in Ciudadela, Menorca.

It's only with hindsight that i wish i'd tilted the camera up to include the lamp and less of the floor, but i guess that's the way it goes sometimes, maybe i'll shoot it again if we ever go back there.

These rivets are part of a large victoria railway bridge that i like to photograph often. It's such a big, chunky structure will plenty of opportunities to shoot at different times of the day, as the light play across it and creates a variety of shapes and textures.

We recently visited friends in Westport in Connecticut ,U.S.A. a beautiful New England town, north of New York. We had been into New ork for the day and bought some camera gear from B&H photo. Taking advantage of the strong pound. One of my purchase was a new Manfrotto tripod and joystick head, which I had the chance to try out a the sun went down over the coast.

So, i've been trying to take some more portraits on the street, this is
a) To overcome my fear of approaching random people and asking for their pictures and..
b) To get some nice portrait shots in the porfolio.

This is at a nut selling stall in a market in Tangiers, the Moroccans don't seem to like having their pictures taken at all,especially women, as Muslim, this crosses some boundaries, so this was even more challenging. I pulled out the camera and had a quick snap, as you can see the stall holder in the background is trying to disuade me from taking the picture. I'm prettty happy with the shot as the boy has a great gaze into or through the lense.

Taken shortly after this shot, again in the street of Ciudadela in Menorca. I am pretty happy with the B&W conversion which initially took place in Aperture, which i then refined in Photoshop afterwards.

This is another shot of the reservoir at Poolburn reservoir in New Zealand, i don't have much else to say about it that I haven't mentioned in the other posts about this location, apart from i like the stillness and symetry of the reflections.
