RETIREMENT FROM WORKSHOPS AND PHOTOGRAPHIC SALES
23rd October 2017 - 0 comments
Tomorrow, Tuesday 24th October 2017, will be my last Workshop with a Client from London. So, full retirement shall commence!

I have thoroughly enjoyed the 8 years of Workshops in the Lake District and giving tuition from my home base in Post Processing. It was great also to have been selling prints and framed photographs for 10 years. Placing my photographs in various Lake District Galleries and Competitions has also been an enjoyable experience.

Now, I have more time with the Wife and 2 Border Collies and more time for all my photographic pursuits.

13th May 2016 - 0 comments
The Landscape Trust for the Arnside and Silverdale Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty recently held a Photography Competition to celebrate their 30th year as an Organisation.

Photographs were shortlisted for the 6 separate categories and these 60 images were printed and mounted at A4 and put on display for the weekend for a Public vote. During the weekend of this display, there were lectures and field trips leading to the judging and Competition results, which were announced in the EI Hall on Sunday afternoon.

I am delighted to be able to say that I was voted the overall winner of the competition with my Bridge over the River Bela image. This same image won an individual category as well.

I won one other category with my image of the limestone pavement at Gait Barrows, and was runner up for a third category with the Baby Woodpecker and Mother arriving image.
