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.

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.
A selection of work taken recently for the RHS at Wisley.
Revisiting part of a walk I completed 12 months ago – through Brent River Park, Hanwell. Wasn’t sure if this was a memorial or not. Placed on a tree over the River Brent, there was nothing to suggest why these flowers were there, but it looked quite deliberate. I have photographed the Wharncliffe Viaduct many times. Wandering around beneath the huge arches is like being in a film set. Maybe ‘Logan’s Run’ …..nature reclaiming a derelict city.
Sorting through old portfolio tearsheets this morning, I found this from July 1989. Car Magazine and a Porsche 911. One of my favourite car pics from that period, taken in Scotland, near Ullapool. And I still remember the car being driven over my foot. It has dated, but it’s interesting to see a photo used full frame, with few cover lines, no barcode…..and no free gift!
I haven’t uploaded many new images from the Coast of Light series for a while, but these are selection of recent images from walks around the town of Conil, in Andalucia this summer.
A shoot for SAGA Magazine, Foamlea Gardens, Mortehoe in Devon. A brief visit.
It’s a while since I photographed a car show, but the 2014 Festival of the Unexcpetional appealed to my sense of humour. Described as a Concours de l’Ordinaire with ‘cars from the era that quality control forgot’…..Allegro’s, Maxi’s and Marina’s to name a few. Plus their owners. So, a small gallery as a flavour. For info about 2015, see: Festival-of-The-Unexceptional
Some more recent additions to the Coast of Light series, from Andalucia. This is an edit from a set taken in August 2013.
I received a copy of the International Garden Photographer of the Year ‘Collection Seven’ book yesterday. With the judges final choices for 2014, it is a beautiful presentation of work, especially for those whose images are represented. A list of all the judges. I really enjoyed meeting so many people over the two days I spent at The Photography Show as part of the IGPOTY programme of events. I lost count how many portfolio critiques I gave, but I saw many lovely images. For anyone thinking of entering next year, I’ll repeat the main point of the talks I […]
