About the Photographs

I have created the ShutterStone Photography website in order to display a selection of my photographs, which would otherwise remain unseen in a cupboard.

Most of my photographs were shot with a variety of 35mm SLR cameras, and many of them were taken over twenty years ago. A recent career change has given me the opportunity to review my collection of colour slides and black & white negatives, and I have started to use digital technology, alongside my film cameras.

Copyright in all the photographs remains with me, but permission will be given to use any of the images as displayed on this web site, without charge, for non-commercial use. If you would like to use my pictures, in a school or college project for example, please credit the picture to me, with the following text:

My landscape photographs are mostly of scenes in Britain and Ireland, with a few from other countries that I have visited. The Giant's Causeway, the Nevis Range and Dartmoor offer plenty of justification for a British or Irish photographer to stay at home.

Britain and Ireland have a wealth of archaeological remains which enhance the landscape. Many are well known and much visited, such as Newgrange and Callanish. Others, such as Graedal Finn and Dun Bharabhat are less celebrated, but just as deserving of a photographer's attention.

Some of our British and Irish birds are as colourful and rewarding to watch as those from far more exotic locations. Back gardens, whether in Hertfordshire, Cheshire, Co. Antrim or Inverness-shire provide plenty of opportunity for wildlife photography.

Most wild mammals in Britain and Ireland are rarely seen, although some are quite common. I prefer to concentrate on the species which are often overlooked, like the woodmouse and bank vole.

Other Animals

Butterflies, moths and spiders, as well as amphibians, can often be found in British and Irish gardens. My garden in Culcheth is a rich habitat for moths and butterflies.

The rare and highly localised pasque flower is one of the plant treasures in Britain, but our more common plants can be just as rewarding for a photographer.

Fungi and Lichens

Although many fungi and lichens are drab, others have plenty to interest a photographer.
