Here is some more work Ive undertaken for the Beer Garden Co from bridport, dorset.
This here is the most extensive of the garden builds for the Three cheers pub co. This particular pub the Avalon is in clapham on balham hill, And its a stunner!
with two gardens both fully refurbished in handmade and bespoke wood fittings, Its a great place to stop and relax,
The Avalon main garden
And then a small side garden made from reclaimed scaffolding boards, All hand cut to fit!
I think anyone can agree they look great!

Its been a very long time since my last landscape post, but here is a mono long exposure shot while working on my uni projects again
Its by no means anything special but its one of a few I’m working on editing at the moment
Available as a print, as always, and any feedback welcome
I shot this small series while shooting for a uni project I was working on.
my Aim was to show the bleak reality of a coastal town out of tourist season. A contrast from the busy beaches and bustling shops. To shoot this one i decided to use my new lens baby muse, and limit it to just a f5.6 aperture. This is a very soft lens and gave itself well to the concept i had. the images have then been edited in LR to reflect a moody and grainy scene, with dark blacks and lots of film grain added.
I think it works Really well, this here is a small selection of what was shot on the day, I may as time goes on release more, or i may not. Who knows.
I may also revisit in the summer with the same kit and same idea but shoot weymouth at its busiest and compare the two.
And thats it, I hope you have enjoyed looking at these, Any prints or questions please ask!
This was a wedding shot back in September of this year. A Really fantastic couple who both like the camera. Which is always a Bonus!
I won’t bore you with to many words for this one, But it was a wedding on Portland again, with the church on Easton Square being where the ceremony took place. This is a really lovely church, big very bright and built from portland stone which with its light colours makes for great images.
This last picture was great, We went up to portland bill for the pictures of hannah and chris. And unknown to us it was national speak like a pirate day! So these rather friendly pirates from the Portland Bill visitors centre came and did some pictures with us
Never realised I hadn’t shared this image with you all! Shot back in September when I had a day off from the day job.
Having moved house recently (might I add never in wedding season again!) I’m within walking distance of the Nothe Fort area of Weymouth.
The day was very overcast with broken clouds, the sort I love for Long exposure work. The wind started off seeming promising as the clouds were moving quickly, so would create some great shapes. However it was probably gusting 40mph! not great for keeping a camera shake free for 2min plus!.
Any images I had shot at the end of the pier where there is a large metal viewpoint with a great spiral staircase, were completely unusable due to the vibrations through the camera being buffeted by the gusts.
So back up plan in place, I retreated to the base of the pier sheltered by the fort itself. Where there is a Life Buoy attached to the railings. I’ve shot similar LE’s before.
Shot on the Canon 5dMKii, 17-40 @20mm, ISO 50, F/14, 99 seconds

My first Mono image in a long time, From a recent sunrise.
This was a 4 minute exposure using my 10 stop, Was a wonderful sunrise, and just as it was over the clouds came over and started to rain while waiting for this image to expose.
Prints are available
A Wet And Miserable Sunrise At Portland Bill Yesterday, After the Planned Corfe Mist shoot Was rained off, Headed Here before work, De saturated the Image and increased contrast to add to the cold and Moody feel
A Previous Shoot At Badbury Rings, Dorset, Setting sun breaks through the Storm Clouds. Creating some great light, A Footpath and a Square Crop complete the image.

We have had some incredibly hot weather recently, with the whole of the UK in a Heatwave Alert And We hit a Level 3 Health Warning down here in Dorset. With Daily temperatures of Over 30 Degrees Celsius At times!
So a Evening Filled with heavy fog was an instant Relief. Still Very Hot but no direct sun light So Very Bearable. even more so By the Stunning Scenes I had Witnessed On the Dorset Coast.
Like this Minimal Long Exposure Of a Boat Jetty, In the Chesil Fleet Between Weymouth and Portland. The Thick Mist Made for some Great Exposures Leaving the Bank on the Far side invisible, added the sense of mood to the image, the jetty Leading into know where and the simpleness of the tones.
Images like this don’t happen all to often So more Special Every time they do, Just so glad I can get out and make the Most of them
