Here at the beach, there were massive (20 foot plus) waves breaking way off the end of Morte Point and froth, lots of it. The morning started wild and the wind peaked around midday   First light Combesgate   Bins down   Froth […]

Calendar 2022, the Misty beach shot. I had a twitter comment from a customer about this years Calendar saying it is ….. “super. A slightly different take, (and) not too chocolate boxey.” I really appreciate it when someone likes my work (naturally) but also  it is so satisfying when someone actually ‘gets it’, that is, […]

It’s that time of year again. Over the last month I have trawled through all the photos that I’ve taken in the last year and chosen thirteen for the new Calendar. It’s always difficult to envisage what the final product will look like until you actually hold one in your hand. So it was a […]

I remember, Septembers in love

It’s been a long old shit wave/ flat spell wait but finally, hurricane Larry delivered the goods; a classic and much fabled September swell. What’s not to love; light winds, sunshine, easy surf and every man and his dog straining at the bit, wound up by Medina and Carissa’s ‘World ChampionsHip” display the day before.. […]

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).

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.

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. Here are a few of […]

It’s the end of summer and here’s the the way August has played out so far with warm downpours and gusty blows. In-between times there’s been big skies and solitary walks up on the moor. A reminder to all locals that you can escape the traffic jams, the Georgeham double decker bus queue, the Mortehoe […]
