The day job. Photographing a front garden in Ealing.
Pleased to see my portrait of Beth Chatto used on the cover of her biography, written by Catherine Horwood. The book will be launched in September 2019 at The Garden Museum, but is available to order in advance on Amazon, or from the publisher, Pimpernel. (Sorry for being old fashioned, but the term ‘to pre-order’ is just wrong!).
Beautiful morning for a paddle. Ice on the boats, but worth the cold fingers!
First round of portfolio judging for the 2019 RHS photography competition complete!
Paper tests. If you still miss rummaging through the stationery in Woolworths, pay a visit to Shepherds Bookbinders in Victoria. More paper stocks than you can dream about! Uncoated and not meant for inkjet printers, but some produce lovely soft-tone monochrome images. But make sure you test ;-).
Brentford Dock, Prunus cerasifera, Brentford Ait, Kew Bridge and Syon Reach. Recent additions to the Drawing Dark Waters project. (click on Projects menu for full set of images).
Interesting to see where and how your images are used. A new book cover next to the original….taken around 1997. ‘The Devil and Sherlock Holmes’ by David Grann.
Tom Hoblyn as hands on craftsman…building a bridge in his garden in Suffolk! Pleased to see this portrait being used in the publicity material for his ‘Majlis Garden’ at The Chelsea Flower Show this year.
Great to see this image of Twickenham Bridge used on a book cover. Originally monochrome, an interesting new interpretation.
