Brutalist Classics


A walk yesterday with Alys Fowler, taking in a few Brutalist Architecture classics.  Starting at the infamous Erno Goldfinger building, the Trellick Tower, following the Regent’s Canal to Regent’s Park and the Royal College of Physicians, then on to The Barbican. I have been to the Barbican many times, but I never knew there was a temperate green house, the Conservatory, which is open to the public. Apparently the second largest in London, it is powered by the residual heat from all of the domestic underfloor heating. Open only on Sunday’s, but we obviously went in through the out door!

Coast of Light – 7.2.17


I’ve been photographing landscapes and people in Andalucia, Spain, since 2004. This is a recent collection taken earlier this month in Conil and nearby Cape Trafalgar. More images can be seen in ‘Projects’ under The Coast of Light.

Garden of the Year with Gardeners’ World


A gallery from a big shoot last summer for Gardeners’ World, where I was lucky enough to visit gardens as far as The Lake District, North and West Wales, and the South Coast, for their Garden of the Year competition.  The March issue of the magazine arrived today, with the final set of images from the 2016 winners, and details of how to enter this year. The ‘Small Space’ winner and Judges Choice was Steve Moodey’s garden in Abingdon, Oxfordshire. The ‘Family Plot’ winner (and People’s Choice) was Magda D’Ingeo’s garden in Reigate, with the ‘Wildlife Garden’ category taken by Pam Woodall in Poole, Dorset. Thanks […]

The River Brent


I’ve walked along stretches of the River Brent and Grand Union Canal for many years, often as a convenient place to test cameras, equipment and new films. In 2009 I took some test shots for the Garden Photographer of the Year Competition. Since then, I have added to these whilst on walks, sometimes with friends, sometimes solo.  Not originally a planned project, it has evolved into one, following the course of the river from its humble source, not much more than a drainage channel, to joining the Thames at Brentford. The full set can be seen in the projects section […]

The Safari Rally with Colin McRae and the Ford Rally Team for Top Gear, February 2000. Over the Rift Valley, Kenya, all teams used helicopters as a viewing platform to instruct their drivers and warn of obstacles in their path. One of the most memorable and scary shoots. Looking back at the other helicopters was a like viewing a scene from Mash, as they zig-zagged down the valley, rising and falling as the approached power cables. Many things were learnt here. The most important was never drink copious amounts of vodka the evening before a helicopter ride.
