Well it’s finally here the new improved web site, only a year in the making.
A big thank you to Dave and Ewan at Thrive Creative, any errors on here are down to me, but they sourced a great framework for me to hang my images on and worked hard to make sure it runs smoothly.
This is the first of a number exciting announcements that have been in the pipeline for a few weeks, I’ve waited for the website to be finished as the blog gives me just the place to get my news out. So have a look around and tell me what you think. read more

This free exhibition, ” The Roaches, Wild and Free” is a celebration of this great wild space right on our door step.

I’ve been blogging for more than 4 years and in that time have posted nearly 1500 post that have been seen over 150,000 times in 174 countries. Not bad for something that was only going to last a year and I’m not done yet. It’s been a few weeks or even months since I last posted, depending on which of my blogs you read and this post is an explanation as to why and a update on what I’m planning next and is being posted on all my blogs (apologies if you follow more than one as you will get this multiple times). read more
Crafted by professional photographer Brett Trafford and wonderfully displayed in the Foxlowe, The Market Place, Leek from the 1st of May to the 31st May 2012.
The free exhibition, “Dusk till Dawn” is exploration of photography when the sun has gone down.When the sun goes down and the light fades this is the time of day that most photographers put down their cameras and head home. During the winter long nights put quite a restriction on your photography and it was this challenge of working out side the normal conditions that lead to the project. Photography is the manipulation of light and the night time is the absence of light, so the two seem incompatible, but with a bit of hard work and dedication the rewards can be spectacular. Taken over a number of years and in a number of locations, the images show the wonderful colors and shades that can appear when the sun goes down.
Been very busy over the last few weeks, which is great but has meant that I have neglected my blogging and also my work on personal photos, although when it comes to landscapes the line between work and play is a little blurred. I’ve done loads of different photo shoots over the last few weeks, from portraits to house interiors and even a secret wedding, but I’ve now got a few hours to sort out my paper work and tax, so I’m blogging!
The picture below is one of the few I have managed to work on from our trip to the Lakes in March, it is of Castlerigg Stone circle near Keswick and was taken early on crisp cold morning. read more
Well it’s been sometime since I had a moment to update this blog, March really has been mad, I’ve lots going on and even more planned and may even find time to take some photos.
Firstly, The free exhibition, “Canal Side” an attempt to capture the many faces of the canal in all weathers and seasons, is now wonderfully displayed in the Cafe Clique, Getliffe’s yard, Leek, Staffordshire until the end of April 2012.
The canal has been part of my life for over 15 years since moving to our current house over looking tunnel pool near Leek. It’s the first thing I see every morning, its proximity means that a quick walk nearly always includes a stretch of it’s banks and its ever changing face means I never tire of it. Over the years the canal has featured in many of my images but this is the first time that it has had star billing. read more
Why not get them a photographic portrait of the one they love most in the world,
A dog portrait sitting, either at home or on walkies, is a great way of capturing their individual personalities and provides you with a lasting memory of your best friend.
Vouchers for a sitting are at a reduced price of £25 until the end of February and can be used up to the end of August. Each sitting comes with a free 5″x7″ mounted print.
Please call on 07801 058345 or email email@example.com read more
I’ve made it, the difficult first year is over and I’m still here, although that not really the full story. I’ve been doing this in some form for 20 years so it’s no surprise that I’ve managed another year, but as a full time business the year mark has now been past, so lets look to the future.
I’ve lots and lots going on, last month I took over 2500 pictures, more than the last 3 January’s put together, and most of that was ground work for new projects and exhibitions. Starting with exhibitions, my first starts on March 1st at Cafe Clique in Leek and is a celebration of Leeks canal. The next one is on ice for the time being as I am looking for a venue, but I’m still shooting for it. read more
