Mount Aouille de Criou reflected in Lac Dames, Samoen, Frech Alps

This fun image was taken on a recent trip to Samo├źns in the French Alps. The camera was turned upsidedown to make the reflection appear the right way up, if that makes sense.

Cycling photoshoot

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

I just finished a really exciting set of photoshoots all over the North West of England, for cycling charity Cycling Projects. The brief was to use photography to showcase the diverse range of events Cycling Projects organize. The results of the photoshoots are great fun, providing Cycling Projects with a stock library of photography to promote the charity, and help raise awareness of cycling for all. You can see more images from this series of cycling photoshoots in my cycling gallery.

Squirral Eastham Country Park

Rhos Barracks

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

I very nearly missed this shot. I got up bleary eyed at 5.30am to find a cloud completely obscuring the mountain I had intended to photograph. Quick thinking and a sweaty run up a nearly hill meant I just got here in time to get a few shots before the gathering cloud set in for the rest of the day…

Clogau Gold Mine

Tuesday, March 16th, 2010

It was a treat to find by accident the spookily deep gullies, abandoned tunnels and slate ruins of the once prestigious Clogau gold mine. This dramatic location with its hilltop ruins and mountain views begs a visit in early morning light…
