I’m a self-taught photographer and I’ve been using digital cameras since 2001.

In 2018 I decided to dedicate some time to learn more about photography and to try using that knowledge to create better images.


I’ve signed up for a photography course that should last about a year and starts with first principles.

My landscape photographs up until now have been hand held and taken while doing another activity. The only filter I’d ever used more than a few times was a polarizer and my tripod remained at home.

The photographs here were taken at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire. They were a deliberate attempt to spend time taking photographs, use a tripod and use some ND filters to extend exposure times.


During the next six months, I’ll be doing a number of photography workshops – picked mostly to cover areas outside of my comfort zone and to learn from people who care about their areas.

Upcoming Workshops:

  • Landscape photography in the Peak District.
  • Astrophotography in Nottinghamshire.
  • Architectural photography in Nottingham.
  • Street photography in London.
  • Safari Park photography in the West Midlands.

I’ll post progress and images here over the year.


If anyone here has any suggestions for areas of photography I should have a go at, then please let me know.
