BRUTAL Hull

I have to admit visiting Hull was a last minute decision. I had never heard much about the city nor given a reason that visiting the city was a must. After immersing myself in the world of Brutalism and historical architecture under threat Hull was suddenly on my radar, and for unlikely reasons a mustContinue reading “BRUTAL Hull”

Clovelly

  Clovelly is a small harbour town in North Devon. What makes it interesting, among other things, is that there are no cars in the town. Visitors must park outside the town and pay an admittance to enter, while access to the harbour is down a steep cobbled walking street. Walking into the town alongContinue reading “Clovelly”

A Series of Ups and Downs

The South West Coast Path is largely just a series of ups and downs. So many in fact that once you have completed the 630 miles of path you could have scaled Mount Everest four times! The path is often described as strenuous with certain sections featuring repetitive ups and downs. Any height that is painfully gainedContinue reading “A Series of Ups and Downs”

Valley of Rocks

Valley of Rocks is an area of particular natural beauty on the northern coast of Devon. The valley lies within the Exmoor National Park, though it is only small it leaves a much larger impression.

Have you Met Verity?

Next week I hope to continue my photographic journey along the coast path and pick up where I left off last October. In the meantime I wanted to share one of the highlights from my last trip that came in one of the most unlikeliest of places. I was walking into Ilfracombe along the coastalContinue reading “Have you Met Verity?”

Quarantine

During this unusual time photography has been a welcome distraction, even though in a limited capacity. Conversation with other photographers has been another, largely through the #believeinfilm community. This is where I found out about Quarantine. As Lockdown and Coronavirus took hold of the world an idea was floated. A zine featuring images from aroundContinue reading “Quarantine”

Documentary in Colour

In early 2004 I was studying photography at college and our final assessment was titled  Documentary in Colour. After researching photographers and shooting a number of concepts I decided on my final direction.  At that time the City of Portsmouth was going through a moment of historical change. Over by the Historical Dockyards they wereContinue reading “Documentary in Colour”

BRUTAL Oxford

Oxford was my first day trip of the year. Its university is well known and brings people from all over the world to the city. With the growth of Oxford University buildings were needed, many of which date back to its early beginnings. There are examples of many different architectural styles but I was thereContinue reading “BRUTAL Oxford”
