In the beautiful North Devon Calendar 2021. This is the twentieth year that I’ve made a calendar, the 2000 version was a single A4 card page and featured a picture of Andy Irons (the famous Hawaiian surfer who came to Cornwall for a contest in 1999). In those days I was a freelance photographer and […]

It’s here! After a tedious lead up, mainly due to the current situation, I am pleased to announce that the new calendar has arrived.

The Motor Ship (MS) Oldenburg, that normally packs 267 people on board, is now limited to 90 due to social distancing restrictions and unless you have booked […]

Another circular walk on Exmoor and this time it’s a classic, or the classic. Up Bossington hill.

Woolacombe sunsets are a photographers dream. Big skies, big beach, big sand dunes and big tides. Foreground interest (usually dogs), mid ground (crashing waves or rocks at combesgate) and background – the magnificent light thrown up as our planet rotates away from the star that gives life to our galaxy.
