Anise Gallery Charity Christmas Auction

Your chance to get to own photos by me and benefit charity at Anise Gallery next week at their charity art auction. There are some excellent artists on show so please try and make it!

From Anise Gallery:

Our secret bid Charity Christmas Auction is back! And this year we are very pleased to be supporting The Art Fund – The national fund raising charity for art.

We already have a fantastic selection of Lots lined up from some of our favourite artists – John MacLean, Minho Kwon, Marc Wilson, Rosie Emerson, Thom Gorst and Nina Fowler – and plenty more yet to confirm. All Lots will be on display in the gallery and bidding will be open on 12th/13th December, the main auction day is  Saturday 14th December. This is a secret bid auction,  all visitors will be handed a bidding slip whereby they can place their highest bid on particular pieces before posting it into our auction box. At the end of they day we will open the box and see who had the highest bids. All ‘winners’ will be notified the next day. Reserves will be set by the artists, it is worth noting however that these will often be far below the usual sale price of the work providing a great opportunity for everyone to buy a unique, original piece of art work and help raise funds for a worthwhile charity.

Mulled Wine and Mince Pies

Alongside a great collection of art work there will be a flowing supply of mulled wine and mince pies throughout the day so please do join us at any point between 11am and 8pm on Saturday 14th December when anise Gallery staff will be on hand to talk you through the works.

If you would like to place a bid on any of the art work you can:

Exhibition at the Paul McPherson Gallery

My next exhibition is at the Paul McPherson Gallery in Greenwich, 77 Lassell Street, Greenwich, London, SE10 9PJ. TEL: 0208 269 2990.

It is on from Monday 11th to Saturday 23rd November – Opening times are Monday-Friday 12pm-5pm and Saturday 10.30am-2.30pm

This exhibition of Images are a mixture of my most successful images of 2013, including the shortlisted image for Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2013 and both my Commended images for Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013 as well as the current best selling images of familiar urban sights from around Greenwich and area as striking as high gloss acrylic prints.

“Some images were taken impulsively, and some were just visualised and then planned to be taken later in the year but all were prompted by the intellectual process of teaching, which brings ideas into focus. Some people would call that ‘being in the zone’ but I prefer the term that I learnt through my yoga practice, ‘being present’.”

New photos from Pembrokeshire – Wales

Pembrokeshire – Wales

I was lucky to spend a week in Pembrokeshire recently and had beautiful sunny weather, a first for me in Wales! Not the best weather to take landscape photos for me, but I certainly will be going back as it is a reallly beautiful part of the world!

You can see the photos here.

‘To and From Greenwich’ Exhibition review in the Greenwich Visitor newspaper – online gallery

There was a great article about my March exhibition ‘To and From Greenwich’ at the Greenwich Gallery in April’s Greenwich Visitor. Here’s what they said: ”staggeringly beautiful abstracts….. gorgeous long exposures…..brilliant exhibition” Unfortunately the newspaper review came out on Monday, one day after the exhibition had closed. So I have decided to make a virtual gallery of the images here so you can see what you missed! Click on the links below to see the exhibition images!

To and From Greenwich Exhibition

To and From Greenwich

I am exhibiting some of my work in Greenwich at The Greenwich Gallery, Linear House, Peyton Place, Greenwich, London SE10 8RS from Saturday 2nd March 2013 to Sunday 31st March 2013 (Monday to Friday 9.00am – 5.30pm Saturday/Sunday 12 – 4pm) http://www.thegreenwichgallery.com and it would be great if you could come along!

I am showing work from my travels to teach photography in Canary Wharf, Whitstable and Greenwich. Its quite an eclectic mix of work from sweeping panoramas to more abstract studies!

I shall be at the gallery on Saturdays and Sundays and will be able to answer any questions you may have on the spot – otherwise, please do e-mail me.

I look forward to seeing you.

Northern Lights

Wow……just wow!

Back from Tromso (Norway) now, where I was hoping to see the Northern Lights and I did! They were visible every night I was there and I saw the most spectacular displays which our guide rated 10/10! It surpassed my expectations completely and was astoundingly beautiful but very, very difficult to photograph! Photos to follow I’m afraid as I am back to a backlog of admin which takes priority, which is very frustrating!

Very lucky with the weather too, only -7C or thereabouts, not much wind and very clear skies. Normally its a lot colder (-15C or lower with strong winds making it feel much colder). Tromso is 200 miles inside the Arctic Circle so no wonder its cold!

More to follow soon…

Crazy ‘on line’ service from Lomography!

Crazy ‘on line’ service from Lomography! http://microsites.lomography.com/lomolab_uk/. I got a Lomo 360 Spinner camera to test out and had lots of fun taking photos with what looked like a WW2 German hand grenade that spins round on its own axis, unfortunately the fun stopped there and it reminded me why I love the immediacy of digital.

If I want some film developing I have to buy a ‘mailer’ on line and wait for it to be posted to me, then use that to post my films to the lab (you cant use your own envelope….sorry mailer, and cut out waiting for them to send you one), but only if they are not developed already, oh no, if you have your films developed already you are not allowed to post them to the lab direct you have to drop them off in person at their lab in central London! How mad it that?

Then wait an estimate 10 days to get them scanned. I suppose it makes sense in the end as they are an ‘analogue’ company, so why make things easy.
