Firstly by shooting in RAW the photographer is taking control of every process of the editing. When shooting in JPEG the camera will do … Read More

Amazing cloud inversion taken at Sunrise, Mam Tor, Derbyshire.

Winter sunrise on Yorkshires East Coast. Bridlington

I think the beaches and seaside towns in the north east are some of the most beautiful in the UK. We have a mixture of everything from fishing villages, piers, sandy and stoney beaches, lighthouses, Abbeys and everything else in between. The towns are bathed in history and there is something to do for everyone. The journey to capture most … Read More

In my kit bag (Hoya ND 1000)

Have you ever wondered how the water looks like silk on waterfalls ? or why the sea looks so peaceful ? 9/10 its due to a long exposure. An ND filter limits the amount of light picked up by … Read More
