Devon and Somerset Gliding club.
I have just started learning to fly a glider at my local club. The experience is incredible and no attempt at writing about it or photographing it will come near to the actual experience. The initial winch launch is like the fastest uphill rollercoaster you could imagine. The whole world blurs around you as you accelerate at 45 degrees up to two thousand feet. Then total silence as the glider effortlessly floats around the sky and you cannot understand how it is just floating in the sky or even climbing upwards on thermals, without an engine? If you have a local gliding club you have got to give it a try it is something that should be on every ones “bucket list”. MY local club in Devon is Devon and Somerset Gliding Club.
A set of photographs taken at the Dawlish Air Show 2015. These were taken from a boat using a 600 mm lens. LINK
A set of photographs taken from a flying camera? Sounds like science fiction doesn’t it? Well check out my Arial photography page for more information. These are all around Exeter, Exmouth and Broadclyst. I hope you enjoy them as much as i did taking them.
One of my many hobbies is surf kayaking (yep “goat boating”). The video was taken using a drift HD head camera. I am also learning to use Adobe Premiere pro and so it is also an exercise in video editing. click on the image for the video.
North Devon & Cornwall Coast Line 2013
August was incredibly hot in the UK and so we took the month of. We toured North
Devon and Cornwall checking out all of the beaches. This included lots of surfing and fine dinning. I have done lots of travelling all around the world but when it is hot in the UK Devon and Cornwall take some beating.
Dawlish Air Show 2013
This set of photographs was taken off shore of the Dawlish Warren .air show in 2013. An excellent show of all types of aircraft flying above the town and coast line. The red arrows display team thrilling all of the crowd. The Bretling wing walkers, RNLI helicopters, Vulcan bomber were just a few of the planes flying. The highlight for me was the Euro fighter which seemed to fly so slow it did not seem possible and then turned on the after burners and accelerated vertically upwards with the most fantastic loud thunderous sound it made everything around vibrate.
Cornish Open Surf Kayak Competition
Photographs from the Cornish open Surf Kayak Competition. This took Place at Godrevey beach in Cornwall, May 2013. Many thanks to Lee who took some photographs of myself surfing (and swimming)
This is a set of photographs I have gathered together on my computer and use for a screen saver. Their are lots of lovely landscapes and beaches mainly from around the UK. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do ? Enjoy!
I was lucky enough to have access to a boat in Exmouth marina this week and took along my Camera. Devon is a beautiful place especially when the sun shines. The photographs are of Exmouth, Teignmouth and Babbacombe bay. Mackerel are abundant at the moment and so throwing the off cuts to the gulls wielded some good photographs.
What does a photographer do on these hot long summer days! (dream on) Sitting in front of the PC looking through some old photographs. These are of Birmingham and the Black Country Museum in the Midlands. They were took some time ago but some great images. Some of the other images are from some work I was commissioned to do for the Birmingham mailbox.
I am currently learning to play the Saxophone and join in some of the local area blues jam evenings. A great place to jam and taste some great beers. Their is a great collection of experienced blues musicians playing or even come join in. check out the link below for more info. I have tried a different template this time to try and allow the use of ipads ? http://www.facebook.com/events/414130971953519/
A day at the beach. The bank Holiday weekend took me to Saunton Sands where i used a long 600mm lens to take some photographs of some local surfers. The waves were 2-4 ft and not very challenging. Later on I took to the waves in my surf kayak. (yes i am a goat boater)
Broadclyst is my local village, this morning I decided to take a walk around the local lanes. The older part of the village is very well preserved and has a feeling of time stood still. The village and church are surrounded by meadows and woodland.
We were lucky enough to travel around Thailand in 2007. As a traveller it was two different worlds. From the poverty of Bangkok to the opulence of Phi Phi. These set of photographs hopefully show the two sides. Overall it was wonderful place to visit and very safe for Holiday makers
This set of photographs have had High Dynamic Range (hdr) processing applied to them in post production. This ads a very artificial almost surreal look to the photographs. They some time remind me of video games in there lack of shadow and highlights coupled with a over sharpening of the image. What do you think?
One of our many travels to us to Cuba. This place is like going back in time. The lack of product choice on the shelves, the cars they drive all make this a unique place. The beaches and boat trips to the remote beaches are incredible. I also got to dive in the Bay of pigs while i was out there. The photographs are from a small portable camera and so not up to my usual quality.
Out and about in Exeter is a series of photographs from around Exeter. Next time you are in Exeter look up and check out the statues and varied architecture .
Here are two separate trips through France, the first in 2003 for a hang gliding Holiday to the Pyrenees. The second in 2009 for a skydiving holiday in Bourdeau. France is still one of my favourite destinations and a wonderful place to drive through. The gentle laid back atmosphere as you get further south is wonderful. Also the incredible beaches that run all along the West coast down to Spain
This is a selection of faces and smiles. They are taken from street photography to fashion shows, events and studio shots. Posted 5th December 2011.
Always Carry your camera with you because you never know what you will see. Yesterdays shopping trip took us on a route through the historic key of Exeter. The wet cobbles and old Victorian lights gave way to some photographs with a period feel to them. 3rd December 2011
Exeter roller derby. Photographs from the rumble at Exeter University.
