Here's a quick update of what has been happening.
I am looking forward to visiting Keswick Photographic Society (Cumbria) on 2nd November 2016 where I am giving a talk.
I was really pleased that my "Fusion" series received an Honourable Mention in the Abstract category at the Moscow International Fotography Awards - MIFA , and also that pictures from "A Grain of Sand" were nominated in the Fine Art Photography Awards here .
With my feet very firmly on the ground I have been working to conclude a ten year long term project on the County Durham Coast, based around a beach known locally as "The Blast", and I hope to put up a new gallery of these works soon.
Most of my news articles now appear on my Facebook page so please check that out.
I am pleased that two of my images have won awards at the 2015 10th Annual Black & White Spider Awards.
"Honesty - After Piet Mondrian" received an Honorable Mention in the Still Life category, whilst "Spore Print 2014" was a Nominee in Abstract
Thank you to everyone at Stokesley Photographic Society (North Yorkshire) and Morton Photographic Society (Carlisle) for the warm welcomes they gave me when I visited them to talk in September. It is always enjoyable meeting new people and talking about photography.
