Appledore and Barnstaple Fireworks

Every year the tradition of fireworks on bonfire night gets earlier and earlier and it now feels that we have them all year around. It was a one-night event only when we were growing up, with jacket potatoes, hot dogs and hot chocolate and a few dodgy Catherine wheels nailed to a post at the […]

The Photography Show – Birmingham NEC

Back in March, I was able to take my first ever trip to The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham along with fellow photographer Stuart Warstat. It was very much an early start (5.30am!! and on a Sunday) but well worth the trip as not only was there a plethora of exciting and new […]

Exeter City Photo Walk

January saw me and fellow photographers from the West Exmoor Camera Club venture outside of North Devon and into the big city!

Broomhill Art Hotel and Sculpture Gardens

I find it funny sometimes that even with some amazing places right on our doorsteps, we can sometimes overlook them. Broomhill Sculpture Gardens is one such place. I don’t know how many times I have driven past it and have visited for exhibitions and events, but I have never actually taken the time to walk […]

Member’s Evening at RHS Rosemoor

A few weeks ago, after a regular day in work, I took the opportunity of  going along to the annual members evening at RHS Rosemoor in Torrington. Held twice in July, the gardens are open outside of the usual hours to allow members to enjoy the superb gardens of a summers evening. This provides rare access to […]

Game Playing

Defining how best to fuel creativity can be a difficult one to answer and I guess all of us have different things that can either influence or hinder our own creative streak. For me ‘stress and anxiety’ are the two biggest creative killers as they sap my focus and energy and ability to think openly. […]
