A complete design refresh for one of my existing clients. Painting and Decorating News is a successful magazine website for professional painters and decorators, showcasing the latest industry news and products.

Big Game Shooting!

Certainly big, and it certainly takes time to get the best shot, but this sort of ‘big game’ is rather easier to sneak up on. These huge machines are highly sophisticated, computerised, laser-guided grinding machines for the silicon blocks used in the solar panel manufacturing industry, and represent the state of the art. This, my […]

Luna Halo

Last night we were treated with a particularly vivid Luna Halo – a bright ring of light around the moon, caused by reflected light from the moon refracting through ice crystals high in the atmosphere. Happy that the pic below made it into The Sun Online.

That’s fine unless your kite uses a ‘Split Strut’ system, whereby the strut is […]

All the Fun of the Fete

I recently had the pleasure of providing the photography for the Linton Village Fete. A quintessentially English event in all respects, highlights of Linton Village Fete included musical interludes, competitions for baking and produce, best dressed scarecrow (featuring Dolly Parton) and even teddy-bear parachuting! A fun dog show as part of the event included prizes […]
