About Me

My photo
This blog is a window into my creative business and lifestyle. I love the outdoors and going on adventures. Photography and videography are a way of life and this allows me to capture the people and adventures along the way. I also enjoy any form of creativity and I am always keen to try new things.

I am very pleased to have started designing our wedding artwork. With us having a woodland wedding I have chosen a woodland theme, colour and have had (and will have) all the artwork printed on luxury stock. We are not having an extravagant wedding but I wanted to do a really great job on the artwork and being in the creative industry I felt that having them created on luxury stock was well worth it! We are both really pleased with the results!

I have recently received a completed copy of a hard back book that I have designed and  created for a client. Being a well known figure within the fishing industry, the book is an autobiography of his fishing life. A lovely looking book and a great success!

Having just returned from a trip to Germany I am now busy editing the footage for a client. The Möhnesee Reservoir sits East of Dortmund and is a beautiful location. The weather was fantastic with the Autumn colours starting to show and a couple of fabulous still, sunny and misty mornings on the water were perfect for filming. Below were a couple of shots I captured between filming.

I have recently been doing a lot of work with Hardy and Greys, creating some great videos on location throughout the UK. Below are a few screen grabs from the recently released captures, please copy + paste the following links and this will take you to the videos online. Watch in HD and enjoy.

A superb 2000+ mile trip around Scotland. We travelled from Totley with a quick stop in Alnwick to meet a client and then onwards to Scotland. From Inverness we took the East coast up to John O' Groats and then over to Orkney for a few days. Then back over to the mainland and across the North coast of Scotland and back down along the stunning West coast. I always love to spend time in Scotland and apart from the midge this time was another great time spent. I also proposed to Anne and we are to be married in July 2016.

Had an excellent few days working with Howard Croston from Hardy fishing tackle. Fishing on the river Wye, the weather played ball and the filming was a great success.

Last weekend I created the official show film and photography for the Bushcraft Show 2015. It was a good weekend and the weather played ball with the sun showing it's face and the rain staying away! It is a great opportunity to get creative and produce a set of photography and videography that captures the spirit of The Bushcraft Show. Please see a few images below.


I forgot to post about my Birthday trip (back in late March!). Anne and I ventured up to the Lake District where a few days of bad weather left a blanket of snow over the highlands, and after the bad weather came the good weather! Giving us an opportunity to summit Helvellyn. We left early and managed to safely access the summit above the snow line and we were rewarded with magnificent views. It's a rare treat to be blessed with such fine weather with views over the peaks and out onto the coast in the distance, made even more beautiful with the sun shining and zero wind. A few photos to enjoy below.

I have a great new sport tourer in the form of an MG ZT-T. It's perfect for ClockworkCloud MEDIA with great looks, sportiness and loads of room to shift my equipment for work, play and travel. I have always loved the design of the mark 1 MG ZT-T from when it was first released, and with them being produced in Longbridge only a couple of miles from where I grew up I often saw them around. I now have my hands on a very well cared for mark 1 in Platinum silver. They are fast approaching a modern classic!

With a bright morning I was convinced I was in for a good viewing of the eclipse, but the cloud soon rolled in and I feel lucky that it showed its face through the cloud at all! With this being the last time to see such a view like this within the UK for around 90 years, I wanted to capture a few images. I am pleased with the outcome considering the cloud that was hindering the view and it truly was a spectacle to remember and a rare opportunity where the sun, moon and earth were aligned in harmony.

I have released a new version of Hidden Waters that was filmed a while back. I recently found the raw footage and felt that a new more up to date edit could be achieved. So I set about creating a new version and was very happy with the results! The outcome is a fly fishing short that gathers momentum and delivers beauty, action and adventure.

I clearly remember capturing this film within the Lake District and the landscape, light, fishing and dedication from both Paul Richardson (the angler) and myself to capture exactly what we wanted to achieve was excellent.

A few screenshots from the finished edit below and please take a look at the video by clicking the link below.
