Stockholm - a City of Islands and Bridges

For a long time I wanted to visit Stockholm and, finally, this spring, I had the chance. And what a wonderful trip it was! The pace of life is slower than in and around London, and everything is fabulously well organised. People are friendly and helpful, and of course all speak English. That made me feel at home straight away!
And just imagine - photography day and night, architecture, water, people, the world’s longest art gallery in the underground system, and a photography museum/gallery, which is open til well after midnight! Pure indulgence!

Of course, I have to go back to this lovely city, and I will take you with me, if you fancy, in September 2020, when I will run a Light & Land tour to Stockholm. Check out my Workshops & Tours page to see a selection of photographs, and the Diary section for details of the trip and to reserve your place.

When Night Falls - Evening Workshop in London

In the last few months, I have spent some time photographing in London, and often did so after dark. London gives us countless opportunities to photograph street life, architecture, grand views and people. That is especially so after dark, when the lights come on, and the familiar views change, creating new and exciting opportunities to make interesting photographs.

I will be running a brand-new evening workshop in London for Light & Land on 11 December 2019. Join me if you would like to get started or want to delve deeper into low-light and night photography!

Evolving Landscapes Exhibition

Light and Land celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2018, and a highlight of that year was the Evolving Landscapes exhibition at the OXO Gallery in London. The exhibition will now travel to the Joe Cornish Gallery in North Yorkshire from 30 March to 27 April. On view is a stunning selection of photographs by Light & Land leaders, including Light & Land founder Charlie Waite, Joe Cornish, Paul Sanders and Sue Bishop. I am delighted to be able to show my image W1 at Joe’s gallery as part of this exhibition. For more details and a link to the gallery, please check out my DIARY page.

Light & Land Quickfire Q&A - my photography year 2018

2018 was an exciting year for me - filled with many photographic highlights. The exhibition at the OXO Gallery in London, being invited by Light & Land to become one of their tour leaders, recce’s for my forthcoming Light & Land workshops and a trip down memory lane to Bulgaria, where I spent a year studying back in 1989/90. This time, I returned armed with my camera, and found a country very different to the one I knew from almost 30 years ago.
As the year draws to a close, I have chatted to Light & Land about what 2018 was like for me, in photographic terms. Click here to read the quickfire questions and answers on the Light & Land hub page. I find that taking stock is very important as it provides me with clarity about what lies ahead and what I’d like to achieve in the new year.


My excitement is hard to describe. Although I have known now for a couple of months that I will be joining Light & Land, today was the day when I was announced as one of the tutors of the company, and it felt a little bit like a big birthday or some other important day of celebration. I am honoured to have been asked, and have gladly accepted the invitation. To be able to work as part of such a fantastic group of people is a wonderful new opportunity for me to share my love of photography with like-minded folk.

I have already put my first workshop together - it will be a day of photographic exploration in York, England's 'Eternal City'. It's a city full of character, with medieval streets and a cathedral that will take your breath away. For more information and to book your place, visit Light & Land's website by clicking here
