So as life tends to go.. keeping up is hard to do!
A while since my last blog.. but that's not because life has slowed down.. the exact opposite!
Things have been a little on the hectic side, juggling work and family life and at the tail end of a great summer holiday season I'm looking forward to gathering my thoughts, taking a little time to go slower and getting to work on some more photographs for you!
This summer has been filled with hot sunny days and a very busy Gallery so I've not managed to get out and photograph as much as I would have liked to but I have had a few sporadic opportunities....
So there are a few pieces of new work up on the website now available to purchase.. this one 'One hundred and Seventy Seven Sailboats' was taken as I was leaning out of my friends plane at about 7.30am during the Round the Island Race on July 1st. I love the moody skies and the lone red sail in front of The Needles.. and yes there actually are 177 Sailboats as I got my assistant to count every single one! Haha..
As the season starts to slow down there will be much more time to work on things and to do what I love the most... get out there and take the photographs! So keep a look out..
I hope you have had a great summer and I will endeavour to share more of what is happening with you as I go along..

Nice to be back in touch...
Lockdown projects... This is a view from the cliff tops near Blackgang Chine looking down on St. Catherine's lighthouse and the seemingly endless ocean beyond. The skies here seem really big.
I'll often take a morning run past this spot, and have photographed it many times, but never loved the result. I like it best when the sea and the sky and the earth all feel part of the same entity: shaped from the same clay so to speak.
I'm not explaining this well, but sometimes when it's misty and the light is low, it's hard to tell where the earth turns into air and the sea turns into sky. For some reason this makes me happy. This, I think, is what this picture is about.
It's a pencil sketch and a water big messy watercolour which I've then brought into photoshop and completely reworked. I like it, and I hope it pleases you too.
