Places

 

 

Part of an ongoing project to create portraits of places through a mixture of candid and informal portraits of people and their environment.

 

Port of Holyhead/Porthladd Caergybi

 

Every year more than two million passengers pass through this port in Anglesey on journies between Ireland and Wales. For the majority I am sure passing through is all they do, having the most peripheral impact on the local economy and community. So, with a 2 hour parking slot I decided to explore the town and the streets immediately beyond. These images are my response to the world I found on a quiet Sunday morning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am delighted that my picture "The Butcher" has been selected for the 2015 Members’ Biennial Exhibition, which will tour the UK during 2015. Only 100 images have been selected for the exhibition from 3,284 images submitted worldwide, so it is a very pleasing achievement. You can see all the winning pictures here.

It's great to have an image in the Creativity feature in the Dec 14 issue of PhotoPlus!

 

My picture of a family at Stow Gipsy Horse Fair was selected as one of the three winners in the RPS competition Family Life. The picture is printed in the Decemebr issue of the RPS Journal. Click on the logo above to visit the site

 

I was working at the London Tattoo Convention and hope you enjoy the 2014 gallery. 

 

I am pleased that judge Dave Stevenson loved my picture Bonobo and chose it as his winner in the Photocrowd All Creatures Great & Small competition. Find out what Dave said about all the top photos here: Top 10 and Commended lists.

I was delighted that two of my images featured in Photography Oxford Festival 14 as part of the Selektif competition on the theme of glass. All the winners can be seen here.

 

I was delighted to have a portfolio of images from the Stow Gipsy Horse reviewed in The Guardian. For more details click here.

 

It was a privilage to be invited by The Big Issue to judge "What Oxford means to me". A photography competition for local vendors. Issued with disposable cameras for 5 days and a brief to record the city as they saw it, the results were very impressive.
