About Me

I am fortunate enough to be based in Northallerton, the County Town of North Yorkshre, and having the countryside right on my doorstep, you could probably guess that Landscape & Seascape Photography is my main Genre.

Macro Photography is also fast becoming one of my favourite projects too, along with Street Photography, HDR (High Dynamic Range) Photography etc.

Not Just the Countryside!
I also like to shoot urban landscapes, and with Paddy’s Hole (otherwise known as South Gare at Redcar) not far from me, its another favourite photo location of mine.  There you are spoilt for choice with old and new boats, fishermen’s huts, steelworks, and of course the sea.




iPhone Photography
Alongside my main camera equipment, I always have my iPhone with me. I find it a great point and shoot camera, and also use it for “reccy jobs”, meaning when I don’t have my Nikon D90 with me, I can photo a location ready to go back to at a later date.

iPhone Photography – Great for Spur of the Moment Photography

I’ve purchased a few apps which I use all the time:

Camera + Pro

These are but to name a few – most of the apps mentioned above also work on Android phones too.

The iPhone is not only great for capturing those “spur of the moment” shots, its also great if you want to geotag your photos from your main camera.

As a general rule of thumb, when I get to a location where I want to start photographing, I first take a photo using my iPhone, just to get the information needed for the location etc.

Back home, I download all my photos into Adobe Lightroom, then find the photo taken with the iPhone, copy the GPS co-ordinates then add them to my main photos taken with my Nikon D90.

Its also a great way of adding photos to a map in Lightroom 4 onwards, so you can see at a glance where you have been in the world.

Anyway, I’ve babbled on long enough, thanks for taking the time to get to know me a little.  I hope you enjoy my little blog and my photography adventures.

      Your welcome – you’ve captured some great characters on your blog – loving the way its all done with a disposable camera!

        Not really disposable. Little fib. Using a house brick Fujifilm S4500. Just thought I’d include that to arouse interest, Ha!
