Cromford Mills – Arkwright Hologram

Posted on January 27, 2016 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

These are exciting times as the Arkwright Society’s photographer. I have just been to the soon-to-open Gateway Visitor Centre at Cromford Mills to take some more photos and saw, for the first time, the Richard Arkwright hologram. It’s been very well conceived and executed, with Arkwright taking us through the story of how he transformed Cromford and, […]

Derwent Valley Essence

Posted on August 12, 2015 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

In building up to the imminent launch of my Crowdfunding appeal for my book project The Valley That Changed The World, I needed to provide a key photo to go on my crowdfunder.co.uk page.  I was advised to ‘choose a photo that captures the essence of your project.’  Tough challenge considering  the rich variety of the Derwent Valley Mills […]

July in Milford

Posted on July 26, 2015 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

This is the July page of my 2015 Milford Calendar, a farmer working on the land at Chevin Green Farm.  I have a busy month ahead selecting photos for my three 2016 calendars – Belper, Duffield and Milford.  Actually, it’s not a simple matter of selecting: I have hundreds of unprocessed photos as a result […]

This image – On The Beach – was taken in Scotland, though you might think it’s the West Indies or similar.  This is a slice of the Caribbean on the Isle of Harris, overlooking Luskentyre Bay. The two figures, though tiny, really make the image for me.  This picture probably represents my best chance of […]

‘The Ultimate Art Gallery Above’

As I build up to my Crowdfunding appeal for my book of the Derwent Valley Mills, here’s one of my favourite images – showing Long Row Belper – which will definitely go in the book. I like the fact that it’s so timeless, having cropped at the bottom to hide the parked cars, and if […]

Derwent Valley Cycleway

Posted on May 15, 2015 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

I have just taken some of the most important photos for my forthcoming book on the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site… important because they point to such a positive future for the Derwent Valley: a designated riverside cycleway all along the 15-mile stretch of the valley from Cromford to Derby.  It would be wonderful to see this […]

Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site – Book Commission

Posted on February 23, 2014 by Admin under Derbyshire, The Life of a Derbyshire Photographer

I have another book in the making… as the official photographer for the Arkwright Society, I have been commissioned to produce a book of photos of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.  Hurrah.  They want a calendar, too. I already have a large bank of photos of the area, having produced local calendars and […]
