Twenty Ten Clubhouse for the Ryder Cup 2010

Back in 2008 I was commissioned to photograph the new Twenty Ten Clubhouse designed by HLN Architects for the Ryder Cup 2010. I wasn’t doing this blog then but I thought, with the forthcoming event at the Celtic Manor, Newport, I would post a few of the architectural photographs here. The weather wasn’t fantastic that day but the sun did shine for a short while which does make a significant difference for architectural photography.

The Door Closes at the Natural History Museum

Does the life of a commercial photographer sound glamorous? I hope not because much of the time the laptop, Photoshop or the iphone rules. Sure we fly all over the place camera in hand. Sometimes to the Highlands, flying up. A driver to pick you up. See the sights… No I really mean see the sites! Models in Portugal, products in France. It doesn’t happen everyday, but neither does an exclusive in the Natural History Museum.

The Blue Gorge and Clifton Suspension Bridge, Bristol

This photograph of Bristol’s most famous Clifton Suspension Bridge is available for sale as a signed limited edition print. The image has created a lot of interest when on display in the studio. It is made up of the combination of 20 photographs to increase both the detail resolution of the image and also the dynamic range, recording both the significant highlight detail around the bridge lighting and also the shadow detail particularly within the foliage.

Some family portraits can leave you wanting to ask just one question

In many ways, there is far more to a family portrait photograph than a visual documentation of all the members of the family. Look more closely at so many of the standard family photoshoots taken in the 1970s and 1980s and somehow this seems to have been an era for bad taste in clothing and…

Smartphones have changed the world of photography

Believe it or not, it is now coming up for 15 years since the first camera phone, the Nokia 7650, was produced. Admittedly, while taking a digital image which is usually a byword for quality, these pictures were not particularly good, so it was more a novelty factor. In addition, we did not have smart…

Sion Hill and the Clifton Suspension Bridge

Another panoramic photograph of the Grade 1 listed terrace house on Sion Hill and the Clifton Suspension Bridge. I know it is a cliche subject, but as a photographer we are always trying to be original. Somehow I really like this version. The composition of the sweeping catenary of the Clifton Suspension Bridge and the…

Sion Hill and Bristol City

This is probably one of the highest resolution panorama that I have put together. From left to right the panorama photo shows Bridge House at the top of Sion Hill, the beautiful Georgian terrace down past the Avon Gorge Hotel, panning down to the City of Bristol and the Cumberland Basin. The extreme resolution of…
