Inventive With Wine-The Venneri Family Introduce Us To Vincotto.

We are sitting in the sun, glinting through the panes of  what can only be described as an enormous industrial greenhouse. The young lady talking to us is of Venneri stock and her English is easy and fluid. Sporting a short French crop, a scarf casually thrown across her shoulders,  she has a facile Italian […]

Canon Gives Me A Good Run For My Money At London Fashion Week.

Photography is all about putting yourself in new situations. I’ve photographed lots of kids before on location, wearing trendy gear, but I’ve never done a catwalk show before, so when Canon’s Professional Network sent down an invite to London Fashion Week, it was an experience not to be missed.

EBS “Riot Of Colour” Turns A Few Heads At RHS Hampton Court

With only 4 hours to visit the largest horticultural show in the UK, I was hard pushed to get round it all.

Walton Open Gardens – A Great Way to Spend a Sunday

Judy McRae, the organiser, exhibited her own cosy city garden which was a […]

February Snow Drops at Welford Park

I first came across Welford Park in conversation with a Buddhist friend of mine. I’ve been into plant photography for ages and I mentioned that I wanted to shoot Snowdrops. She immediately suggested Welford Park so as soon as I could, I headed up there. At first I was taken aback by the amount of […]
