January Projeck

January 1, 2014


One photo, everyday, in the bleak mid-winter; it’s not gonna be pretty. It will certainly test the low light capabilities of the 5D mk3 (and it’s weatherproofing).  Scroll down for latest picture then click on it to make it h- yeew-ge. Wednesday 1st View of Woolacombe from Morte Point. Thursday 2nd Chickens in the yard, […]

Estpix Canvas Prints

October 26, 2013


With the disgusting celebration to capitalism. that is Christmas,  just around the corner, we at Estpix are getting into the festive mood by flogging these high quality canvas prints.  These two seem to be the most popular: This one, a  black and white of Croyde taken from Baggy Point end of the beach shows the […]

Britsh Junior Squad Training – January Session, Croyde

January 19, 2013


The first meeting of the 2013 British Junior Surf Squad (supported by Calypso soft drinks) was held at the famous quality beachbreak at Croyde this weekend in very wintery and freezing conditions. Young surfers (under 18’s) from all over the SouthWest of England and Wales travelled through the snow and slush to train with British […]

Septembers in love

October 5, 2012


  After an awful summer there was a palpable feeling of relief here in North Devon when the school holidays were over and things became less hectic, on the roads, in the pub and in the water. The water is still warm and there is an almost romantic attachment to September, in that everyone looks […]

Winning and being the Best

May 14, 2012


It’s been a long time since the British Surfing Champion came from North Devon, since 1984 in fact when Richard Carter (Redwood surf shop, Croyde) held the crown. Last November Woolacombe resident, Stuart Campbell, brought the title back to Devon from a stormy Fistral Beach in Cornwall. To celebrate Stuey’s 21st birthday (today), his title […]

Marvellous March

March 29, 2012


What can I say that already hasn’t been said over the social networks this past week. A week of offshores, warm weather and some pretty bloody decent surf too; not bad for Blighty in the summer months, but in March – unheard of – but not unwelcome. An unusual combination of a seeming trapped low […]

Readers poll and happy holidays

December 19, 2011


With Chrimbo just around the corner and this blog being nearly a year old I thought it would be appropriate not only to say thanks to everyone for reading my inane ramblings over the past year (and leaving your comments) but also to wish everyone a merry, peaceful holiday and best wishes for a surf […]

Six of the best

December 8, 2011


Just finished choosing 12 photos for a calender to send to my Mum for Christmas. It’s a bit of a chore to sort through through a years worth of photos but a useful exercise nonetheless; not only does it secure my next years supply of socks and cake, it also acts like a ‘taking stock’ […]

Portrait landscapes

November 18, 2011


or in this case, seascapes. The pulled back line-up photo has been an industry standard since the beginning of surf photography, usually taken with a short telephoto (100mm – 200mm) but more recently with a long tom (400mm – 800mm), this has allowed enterprising fotohogs to combine the pulled-back shot with some insanely hot surfing […]

Croyde Session

November 7, 2011


The new issue of Carve is out and I have been lucky enough to have a few shots published in the issue (thanks uncle Roge). Amazingly they are all from the same session, a nice three foot day at Croyde in September, which is quite unusual (for me). There are a myriad of reasons why […]
