Website Design | Beverley

I've just completed a new website for Vanessa Delicatessen & Café in Beverley. This award winning deli and cafe located in the heart of Beverley offers a great range of local produce. The site was built to be easy to navigate and is completely responsive. It's also easy for the team to edit and update information when they need to. Once the design was finalised I visited the deli and cafe to take some new photos for the site which was also a great excuse to stay for some lunch. You can see my web design portfolio here and if you have any questions you can contact me for more information.

Website Design | Driffield

You may not know that I also offer web design services. I create and maintain around 30 websites for a range of businesses. Web design is constantly evolving so I used my time during the lockdown to research and expand my knowledge in order to be able to offer my customers and myself the best websites possible. With the impacts of Covid19 likely to affect business for the foreseeable future it's a good idea to make sure your online presence is as optimised as possible. This means making sure that you have a optimised and responsive website that looks good on desktops, tablets or smart phones. It also means making sure that everything is up to date and that your website, social media and google business page are all linked together so people have the best chance of finding you. You can see my web design portfolio here and if you have any questions you can contact me for more information.

Fashion Photography | Beverley

Last Sunday I got a call from a couple who had been let down by another photographer and needed someone to go take some fashion shots for them. While fashion photography isn't something I have much experience I always enjoy a challenge and they had some ideas about what they wanted so I went to meet them just in time to get some nice shots in the afternoon light.

Architectural Photography | East Yorkshire

This week I have doing some Architectural photography for a private client in East Yorkshire. They wanted images of there new property that showed the reflection of the gardens that surround it. This meant planning the perfect time of day so that the light was in the best position. For some properties it can even mean multiple visits are required to capture each aspect in the best light. Here is one of my favourite shots of the property. For more architectural photography click here

Bespoke Canvas | Fine Art Prints

I recently delivered five bespoke canvas prints to Ullyotts Estate Agents in Driffield. The Tour De Yorkshire image was taken from their office window so it seemed fitting they should have a print of it. The others feature local scenes from around Driffield and the Yorkshire Wolds. If you're interested in prints for your home or business you can contact me for more details. Here is a photo of some of the canvases now decorating their offices.

Wildlife Photography | Beast From The East

The Beast from the East has arrived this week, bringing with it lots of great photo opportunities if you're able to reach the place you're trying to get to. Luckily it wasn't to bad on the drive down to Tophill Low Nature Reserve and I'm glad I made the effort. Unfortunately I wasn't able to find the Ermine Stoat that I had seen a few days before but I did find some of the Roe Deer sheltering in the woodland which looked very picturesque in fresh snow. Here is one of the Stags. For more Wildlife Photography click here

Landscape Photography | Yorkshire Wolds

Tonight I was out for a walk on the Yorkshire Wolds and as the sun was setting I noticed this scene in the distance. I only had one lens with me and while it is a very simple photograph I love the contrast between the light and shade. For more landscape photography click here

Astro Photography | East Yorkshire

Tonight I was out on the Yorkshire Wolds at Sledmere Monument to give a one to one class on night photography. When I saw it was going to be clear skies I thought we might get a chance of capturing the Leonids but to my surprise it was so clear we were treated to a view of the Milkyway even it was only a faint view! After a few hours and some light painting we had a great selection of photos. For more information on workshops click here

Wedding Photography | Wold Top Brewery

This week I received a testimonial from Jess & Adam who's wedding I photographed a few weeks ago. There is a lot to think about when you’re photographing a wedding so it’s always rewarding to know my customers are so happy with the photos!

"You photographed our day perfectly, capturing the love and happiness from start to finish. We look at the photos now and we are able to remember every moment and emotion from our day, they really are outstanding. We love how helpful and attentive you were throughout the day, you listened to what we asked for but also took your own initiative and produced some truly fabulous shots .... The sunset shots are simply beautiful. You knew the best places both at the church and at the venue to capture the photos, you were very patient with us when getting the group photos and you have managed to capture the joy of the day in every photo. We would recommend you to anyone. You did a fabulous job. Thank you so much for photographing our special day, Jess & Adam"

Wedding Photography | Scarborough

Recently I was at Ox Pasture Hall Hotel in North Yorkshire to photograph Kevin & Becky’s wedding. I had visited the venue with them about this time last year to plan out some photos but most of the images we had planned where in the grounds outside so we all had our fingers crossed for good weather. Luckily for Kevin & Becky there was only a few small showers first thing and then the weather gradually improved through the day. It was even nice enough for the ceremony to be held outside and later in the evening we were treated to a stunning sunset over the North Yorkshire countryside.

Wedding Photograpy | Whitby

This week I was photographing the first of two weddings I have in North Yorkshire this summer. Starting at Whitwell-on-the-hill near Malton to photograph Phil & Chloe’s wedding at a beautiful old church. Despite a few heavy showers the bad weather seemed to be perfectly timed to when we where indoors. After the ceremony everyone travelled over to Carr Mount Estate near Whitby for the reception and by the time we arrived the clouds had cleared giving us plenty of time to get all the formal and informal shots around the gardens before the speeches and meal in the onsite Wedding Tipi.

Sir David Attenborough | York

After a few days in the Yorkshire Dales National Park we finished off this week by seeing Sir David Attenborough at The Yorkshire Wildlife Trust's 70th Anniversary event at the University of York. I think anyone with an interest in the natural world will have been influenced by this inspirational man and it was a privilege to hear him speak about some of his experiences and to hear about the great work of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust.

Landscape Photography | Whitby

This afternoon I was in North Yorkshire to visit a couple about their upcoming wedding. After the meeting it looked like it was going to be a nice evening so I drove over to Whitby to capture a few sunset photos. The sunset itself wasn't very dramatic but I took a few more shots just after the sun had dropped over the horizon resulting in some very calm and tranquil images of the harbour which doesn't happen to often.

I'm proud to say this image of two Polar Bears yawning on the sea ice of Spitsbergen got through to the semi finals of the NHM Wildlife Photographer Of The Year.
