After a week of processing raw files here is a selection of images from my Whitby by Night Portfolio.
Shoot over 5 nights and 3 dawns on a Nikon D3x with varoius lighting techniques.
Whitby is a quaint, traditional fishing village on the North Yorkshire Coast. Famed for its connection to Dracula and its author Bram Stoker, Whitby has a long and rich history as a port and fishing town.
I am now looking for a whitby retail location.
Corporate headshots, portraits, group shots, events for business PR and Marketing photography, all in a days work.
Whilst on a photo recce of York I dropped into St Martin Le Grand Church on Coney Street.
I was chatting to the Warden he told me it was impossible to get a good photograph of the mail stainglass window due to the arch in the forground. I said I would shoot his window if I could take a shot from the top of the bell tower, deal on! Using a 24mm shift lens and lighting to balance the light thru the windows and the inside foreground.
Its one of the most beautiful churches in the city, according to The National Gazetteer of Great Britain and Ireland, 1868
The church is named after St Martin of Tours, the patron saint of soldiers, founded in the late 11th, there are still remnants of masonry from that period. As you enter the church, an enormous window is ahead, surprisingly located at eye level, as it was reconstructed here as part of the rebuilding of the church. It was originally the west window of the nave, and dates from 1437. It had been removed from the church earlier in the war, and so escaped bomb damage. Hutchinson and Palliser’s guide to York calls this “certainly the largest and arguably the finest of the city’s parish church windows”.
Shot at 4 o’clock in the morning. Stars are seen as moving trails of light due to long shutter speeds. Part of a body of work of local landmarks photographed at night.
Almscliffe Crag is a Millstone Grit outcrop at the top of a small hill near the village of North Rigton, between Leeds and Harrogate in West Yorkshire, England. The crag was formed due to the softer adjacent strata of shale and mudstone eroding at a faster rate than the hard wearing millstone.
A press /PR shoot for Cicada Communications the Harrogate-based agency has been chosen to support the York, North Yorkshire & East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) in its PR and marketing activities. The effects were added in post production in Photogshop CS5.
The newly formed LEP, which covers an area from Skipton to Scarborough and Northallerton to Selby, will provide business support across the region following the demise of Business Link. Cicada will support the communications team as the LEP builds its profile in the region and helps to strengthen its links with business organisations.
SaBRE Cambrian Patrol (click this link to view movie)
Images from a very wet Brecon.
Exercise Cambrian Patrol is an annual patrolling competition that takes place throughout the Cambrian Mountains of mid-Wales. An internationally recognized military exercise, previous participants have included numerous European states, in addition to Commonwealth countries and the United States.
Cambrian Patrol was first set up more than 40 years ago, by a group of Welsh Territorial Army soldiers who designed the training event to feature long distance marching over the Cambrian Mountains and which culminated in a shooting match on the Sennybridge training area. Since then, the exercise has been rigorously updated to meet the challenges faced by modern soldiers.
A group photograph of incommunities Apprentices (incommunities provide affordable, high quality homes, principally for rent in neighbourhoods across the Bradford District). Apprenticeships are relevant to local councils as employers and providers of services for 14 to 19-year-olds. They are also a means of improving skills within the community. Apprenticeships are primarily aimed at people aged between 16 and 24, but are also open to those in the workforce aged 25 and over.
