Free Fall in Mousehole

During a tour of Cornwall with Julian, we stopped off in Mousehole for a morning. I remember going here at a child, and loved the chance to see it again with my camera, and let the memories flood back of my mum telling me stories of the Mousehole cat. Whilst walking along the harbour walls, […]

Vintage lighting

Taken on my 50mm during a quick visit to my sister’s then-new house in Manchester. Mum, dad, Emily & I went for a quick walk around the area. This classic ford was sitting in the driveway of one of the houses. Such is the way of the 50mm, it was difficult to get the whole […]

Curiosity lit the cat

Back when I lived in Brindle my rain-day photography subjects were the cats. They’re disobedient but very photogenic. This particular rainy evening, Tilly was messing around with my desk lamp, which after a quickly shutting off the main light, made for a dramatic picture.

Soaking exhaustion

In short: Here’s a soaking wet dog. The longer version: Back in 2017, Brindle Brass Band qualified for the Brass Band National Championships in Cheltenham. This was a huge feat for the band, and the first time I’d experienced it in my then 10 years with them. National championships aren’t cheap though. 3 days in […]

Musings in the Heaton Cooper Studio

A few years back myself, Julian & Jake headed up to Grasmere for the weekend for some walking, relaxing & drinking at the Grasmere Guzzler Beer Festival. Before lunch one day, we darted into the Heaton Cooper Studio to pass a half hour or so. The lake district is already a gorgeous place, but when […]

No gi Jiu Jitsu

One of my few visits to Liverpool, despite having lived 45 minutes away my entire life. This time it was to see a few of my old pals from the Alley Cat Academy, including Andrew Hardwick from Brotherhood Health & Performance. This was a no-gi event put on by Figure 4 Promotions, if I remember […]
