I spent yesterday running a workshop day for the three of the winners of the New Generations Young Photographer Competition.
Great day out, and the weather was very nice to us. I think we all got a lot out of it, especially me, being the youngest group I've taught... (photo by Molly Dakin)

After last weekends' successful landscape masterclass experience with NASOP, I decided that it was high time I got on with setting some dates for the workshops that I have been promising everyone for so long... So I have...
There will be four regular workshops:
- A one day introduction to the basics of SLR photography (1st on December 8th)
- A one day practical landscape workshop for the more experienced photographer
- A one day classroom session on using Photoshop and producing finished prints
- A two day master class that combines practical landscape with finishing for print (11th - 12th January 2011)
Full details are in the new Workshops section of my site. More dates for more workshops will be set very soon...

I've just finished work on an image commissioned by Eden Arts to publicise the Winter Droving Event happening in Penrith in November...Shot for Eden Arts
It's now off to the designers to be turned into posters and ads for the event.
I'll put together a little piece on how this image was shot and assembled as soon as I get a chance...

Unfortunately, due to ongoing building work at Upfront, my show there has been taken down.
I'm currently taking a short break from my landscape work while I concentrate on my commercial work. Later this year I will be putting on a exhibition of entirely new landscape work; watch this space (or just join my newsletter) for more details...

I'm now on the very beautiful island of Antigua, where Katharine and I will be getting married in just a few days time.
My gallery will be closed while we're away, reopening on March 24th.

The Times newspaper last Saturday (feb 21st 2009) featured my perennially popular Ullswater Calm, which was nice. It was on the centre pages of the Weekend section and came out remarkably well, given the limitations of newspaper print, so all in all I'm pretty pleased with myself.

The still life of the Explorer's Study (above) is the first image I've shot for the series that is in the very earliest of stages. It brings together a set of found and inherited props that have been accumulating in my studio over the last couple of years. They all seem to sit remarkably well together, and they seem to suggest an intriguing story... More on this very soon...
