Ogwen Valley and Tryfan

Video from a recent trip to Ogwen Valley / Nant Ffrancon to start a book project on North Wales that I’ve had in mind for a while. Don’t want to give to much away yet, but should be a really nice project.

I got two out of the three shots I wanted that day, the rain interrupted the third. All of them involved some pretty awkward shooting positions but this one was the trickiest, requiring balancing the tripod, and myself, between three rocks.

Definitely going to be a fun project .

What you don’t quite get in this video is that I’m perched on a couple of rocks on the sides of the river flow, feet are totallysubmerged in cold Welsh river water! The middle is knee deep! totally buying some of the longer socks. Question is normal black ones or the olive and grey ones they make for the tweed brigade!?

New blog, New Website, New subjects

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

So.. I’ve decided to embrace modern culture and start up a blog! All the cool kids are doing it and I was starting to feel left out. I dont know how often i’ll post and appologise now for what I might put up, but I’ll try and make it interesting!

Recently redesigned my website, which you can check out at –

I’ve also changed the focus of my work to landscapes and architectural. While I love shooting people, I love shooting landscapes/buildings even more. Nothing like being outdoors, just you and the camera. Especially if that camera is a lovely 5×4 field camera that takes an age to set up, just to capture that magic 1/15th of a second.

Hope you all enjoy my ramblings on here and I’ll try and keep it upto date!
