In order to locate a particular shoot, please go to the Albums section below, noting that
Albums have three levels of security -

1. Visible to everyone and images may be purchased
2. Visible to everyone, but subject to the standard model contract and images not for sale without prior approval of those concerned. No price plans shown
3. Private albums which may not  be viewed or images purchased without link/password. This includes any child photographs taken at public events.

Loxley Colour are my photo lab due to the attention to detail, such as accurate calibration and colour correction as well as the wide range of merchandise from a standard 6x4 print through to top of the range photo albums and personalised products such as mousemats and mugs. There is a link to their brochure on the Price List page

Price packages. I offer a wide range of items from individual prints to products as well as a fully automated service to buy digital downloads in two sizes - low resolution or standard. For digital downloads, you will receive a link via email following your purchase.

You may also arrange a one to one session at an agreed location, with agreed equipment and photos provided in a physical album or book

I may not be the fastest to upload following an event, but aim for quality. In fact, with earlier shoots, especially prior to 2015, I am finding images which do not meet my standards today. However, I may include some because of their uniquiness such as HRH the Queen visiting the New forest Show 2012

Not all albums listed are online, and of those that are, the content may not be complete

Each image is checked on a high resolution monitor and enlarged, usually to 100% and adjusted. The standard monitor which comes with a PC or laptop is just not good enough for high quality work, even when calibrated.

If you see an event listed and cannot see what you want, please ask

You may select to have your photos in monochrome or sepia as well as colour



Favourite sayings

Photography is a blend of art and science which involves four stages.

1.Seeing - an eye for a picture, 2 Taking - all aspects of camera craft 3. Making - post processing
4. Presenting - the finished article.
I have studied photography seriously for over 40 years and digital imaging for 23 years and continue to do both. If ever I thought I had “arrived” or reached any sort of “standard” I would pack [it] in because what I would have reached was a plateau and would then probably be incapable of learning new things……I hope this never happens.
Leo Palmer

Amateurs are concerned with equipment, professionals are concerned with time, masters are concerned with light

The only photographer you should compare yourself with was the one you were last year

The more people I meet, the more I like my dog
