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!
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.

Hope all is well, Again have been very busy recently, with work, social Life, Cars and Photography, But managed to get out Last Night. All Day there was some great thick mist here in Dorset, Something i knew i could make a great image with, With That in mind, i headed up to Durdle Door, The walk alone nearly killed me, This image was taken in the Man’ O War Bay, So a long Walk down a large amount of steps. A Different Take to the normal images shot of this bay, and using some foreground rocks to create a great balance in the image.
Finished in CS And LR5, Cropped to a 16:9 aspect, My Second Favourite other than Square for black and white work, a 2.20 min exposure with the 10 Stop filter on my 1DSii and 17-40 L
There will be a Few more to Follow in the Next Few Days, Just have to Find the Time to get on and edit them.
Cheers for Looking!!
Ive Been crazy busy recently with hardly any time to even consider a blog post. The last few weeks have been going by to quickly. With plenty of Photoshoots and editing, with little time for landscapes, I managed to get out to one of the old haunts, this Being portland bill in dorset. With a typically moody evening again (Thank you England) arriving only 20 minutes before sunset. Again all of a rush. managed to catch this long exposure looking back over the lighthouse from the base of pulpit rock.
This being the first time i’ve properly used my new 10 stop filter, Not to disappointed with the results and will continue to test as i get time. ( I should be so Lucky )
I Will Try to Get more Done soon, A Few more Photoshoots, Craft Fayres and hopefully a landscape or two in that time.
Were Getting Battered Here in Dorset. Storm force winds and the threat of hurricane force winds! Means one thing rough Seas, Great for Photographs but very Dangerous! Reported that a Photographer may have lost his life down Lyme Regis last night while shooting the Storm. So Saftey is a must, Respect is the thing the sea needs the most, Very unpredictable at times.
This was shot on a set of steps well away from the cobb wall where the light want the best, with the wind whipping straight into this little cove, it made a great dramatic sea, Converted into black and white to enhance the texture of the sea.
Unfortunately the Bad weather didn’t Stop the Local council Parking attendants working, Who Gave me a nice note of Praise for not having a ticket, And have asked for £60 towards what i can presume is their christmas party fund. Still more than worth it though, Getting out and Getting these shots I feel is priceless.
