Yorkshire Travels

Cecile and I are lucky enough to live in Yorkshire one of Englands most scenic counties, this gives us great scope for our photography whatever the weather.
Only minutes away from our home in Ilkley we have the beautiful moors on our doorstep and just a short drive away are the coastal towns and villages of Yorkshire.
Northwards takes us to the market town of Skipton and then through the Yorkshre Dales and picturesque villages to Hawes a lively market town also famous for its cheesemaking.
From Hawes, not far  away on the banks of the fast flowing River Swale is the historic town of Richmond with its Norman castle, large cobbled market place and museums.
Yorkshire has many other place of great character and beauty to offer, I hope our photographs which can be viewed from the following link will encourage you to visit.

Bradford and Bingley (Bees) vs Ilkley. Rugby Union

My Photographs from a game of Rugby Union played in West Yorkshire on 28th February 2015

Both these teams are based in West Yorkshire and were playing a local derby league game which created a little more tension than usual.

"Bradford and Bingley vs Ilkley"

The afternoon was wet and dismal but this did not deter the spectators enthusiasm.

For sporting events my camera is a Canon 7d coupled with a Sigma 70-200 2.8 lens all mounted on a Slik monopod.
On the winter cloudy afternoons the camera ISO I usually start at 800 and increase as the afternoon progresses and light is lost. I find the 7d handles high ISO very well.
The images are edited in Adobe Lightroom and then uploaded to Flickr for all to view.

Next Saturday will be Ilkley vs Dinnington which promises to be an action filled game.

Hope you enjoy my photographs from the game by following the link.

Rugby Photography

During the rugby season I can be found most Saturday afternoons photographing rugby union, usually Ilkley RFC vs their opponents of the day.
Quite a lot of the time I seem to spend these Saturday afternoons in adverse weather conditions and need to be well insulated, boots, big coat, hat, scarf and most essential gloves to keep my fingers warm while operating the camera.











I post these photographs to one of my websites Ruggerpix  giving supporters who could not attend the game a chance to view  from the comfort of home.

Paris, Pavement Cafe's

Several months ago we visited Paris with several photographic projects in mind.
One of these projects was to portray the character of the pavement cafe's of Paris
It was no easy task as the majority of cafe's we photographed looked extremely inviting, unfortunately we did not have the time or capacity to sample them all.
Our camera's were a Canon 7d and 30d with Canon lens EFS 18-200 plus a Sigma 10-20 DC HSM. All this was carried in our Kata 3N1 30 backpack.
A book of our work will be published later in the year but in the meantime we hope you will enjoy the samples below.

Poster Design by Image and Style

One of our local venues in Addingham, nr Ilkley decided to host an 'Open Mic' evening complimented with chinese food and a book signing by author Stephen Mosley.
We were asked to design and produce a poster for the event. It was an interesting and appetising project with lots of food photography.




'Collinson Twin' Adam and Stephen are both big fans of Hammer Horror Films and took their name from the twins Madeleine and Mary Collinson, the stars of Hammer's 1971 vampire film TWINS OF EVIL, also starring Peter Cushing.
Adam works as a teaching assistant in Harrogate, and also plays solo gigs at such venues as the Half Moon Inn in Pool, and the Red Lion in Burley in Wharfedale.
Stephen is actor and writer. His book of strange tales THE BOY WHO LOVED SIMONE SIMON (which I also illustrated) is out now, and was selected by ENTERTAINMENT FOCUS as one of the 10 Best Books of 2011!

The 1940s in Haworth 2011

Well, back in Haworth for a great event providing fantastic opportunities for portrait/reportage style photography. The village is decked out to depict the 1940's war years and a superb job they do of it.

From experience we think for photography it is best to arrive about 9.30am and photograph until lunchtime after which it is usually to busy and packed in the main street for what we call comfortable photography.






















During that time though you will see a huge range of characters, uniforms, WW2 equipment and civilian attire.

Photography on the Wall

Quite by chance earlier this week I came across a very interesting artists studio in Ilkley. I was walking along Leeds Road on my way home when I almost stumbled over an advertising 'A' board that had blown over onto the pavement, whilst picking it up and putting it back on display saw it was advertising an artists studio the 'Art Loft'. This was one I had not heard of before and as I was always on the lookout for places to exhibit our fine art photographs I decided to take a look. 
Eventually found the studio tucked away behind Ilkley's main auction house, Hartleys. 
Had a good chat with the owner /artist Liz Sutcliffe ( lizarra ) and discovered that her paintings have been finding their way into private collections all over the world. Liz has also accepted commissions from Italy and America as well as London.
As well as exhibiting her own work Liz has works by other artists hanging on the walls which give the studio a real feeling of warmth and vibrance. One of Liz's pastels 'Partners' is really impressive, in fact stunning, don't take my word for it, visit the Art Loft Studio or visit the website www.lizaraartloft.com


I am pleased to say that Liz has allowed Photography on the Wall to exhibit several of our fine art photographs at her studio.

Photography on the Wall

At long last after design work and much fine tuning our new new website is live. Its purpose is to display our landscape photographs for people to enjoy and hopefully to buy.
We have displayed the images in several galleries, landscapes, towns and cities, coastal, transport plus many more. As time goes on we will add new photographs both black and white and colour to the galleries.
The scene below is just one example, we were up at 5.30 am for this one, Sunrise at the Cow and Calf  Rocks, Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

 There are many other photographs of the Yorkshire countryside plus  coastal scenes as well such as the Lobster Pots on the Quayside at Staithes 
shown below.
