New for Twenty Two, Toucan Hill – James & Catherine on the mirador at Toucan Hill – Some shots are simply lovely. This romantic shot of James & Catherine is one of them. I shot this during a nine day shoot for Toucan Hill, a house on Mustique that is available to rent. It was shot for their website but never used.

When starting out on your journey as a photographer there are many things that others pitch to you as worth worrying about. Most of these are received wisdom and hearsay and can be totally ignored. This article is some friendly advice from an wise old snapper.
I have taken the time to list the top ten things about which new photographers need not worry…

Striding out towards an artistic future
I recently did a portrait session with Lou Collins an up and coming artist. She paints beautiful textured nudes using punchy colours and translucent materials. The works are both exciting and vibrant. You can print from her website at: https://www.wildat-art.com/
We had some fun with this shot and Lou looks great in her Loubitans with the wind machine at full tilt.
Recently I have been posting my images to International Photography Groups on social media. I have been building my online profile as a professional photographer, and helping newbies with their work, and in doing so I have picked up few international awards for my work, this was a little unexpected
Checkmate – Shooting the brief
Catherine – after Faye Dunaway – The Thomas Crown Affair
Those of us of a certain age will immediately recognise the inspiration for this image.
Of course, it is inspired by the legendary “chess scene” from The original “The Thomas Crown Affair”…
Providing Cover for Sarah McCoy’s New Book – I just received notice from Alamy, my image library that one of my shots from my Mustique collection has been used on the cover of Sarah McCoy’s new novel, published by Harper Collins.
Shooting silhouettes in the pool – Toucan Hill – Mustique
So here’s a funny story…
t took 1.5 hours to tie off the studio flash unit with cords to the building, to make sure that it didn’t fall in to the pool…
The Confetti Shot – Toucan Hill – Mustique
Recently, I have been archiving some historic files from previous shoots.
When doing this I am often distracted with images and shots that took me a while to work up. This shot is one of them.
It was part of a very large shoot for a Villa on the Island of Mustique. This frame is one of twelve that went on to become a stop motion animation of the confetti throw.

Last week I had an excellent day with Chris Exner.
He needed various PR and professional shots for his up and coming 2022 projects.
We set about producing some lovely images that he could use across various media. Some business like and others adding a little more drama to the lighting.
The day whizzed by and we produced a variety of wonderful shots that you can see in the Chris’ folio on the website
What with global pandemics, lockdowns and real life, it’s a rare opportunity to just potter and take some simple snaps. That opportunity came my way recently when Jo and I had what has been a rare moment of respite, and like many other we retreated the a bucolic idyll, in our case Devon, specifically Dartmoor. The images below were snapped as we went. You have to remmber that Jo cannot pass a single tree or plant without shooting it so when I say we were walking what I mean is I had so much time to consider and compose that it may have well been a paid shoot.
Katja – A New Start in 2022.
A lovely new folio of Katja
Katja is about to embark on her journey as a model.
I have asked her permission and does not mind me mentioning that she has been on the planet for around five decades.
She is embarking on a career as a commercial model, and has already attracted the attention of a couple of agencies.
They’ll be more images shot by us, as we further our collaboration in the spring, when the weather improves, here in the UK.
