Had a great shoot today at Parrs Foods in Scarborough who are the UK’s premier producer of Toffee and Chocolate Apples. Look at them they are truly works of art !!
When I visited earlier in December I met up with Lasse Tano and Ola Backe who hunt Ptarmigan in the winter out in the forests. So I had the task of capturing images of two fantastic English Setters one called Myrhedens P- Fille, 2 years old and Lappvikens Ego Boy ( 12 years old) who is a double champion in Sweden. The temperature was -25 and we only had daylight for a couple of hours so I am really happy with the results. So thanks to Lasso and Ola and great work from the dogs.

In August 2012 I had the privilege of photographing the wedding of katie and Ross in York, recently I had a walk in Dalby Forest with katie and her two lovely daughters and the enclosed images show what can be done on a short walk in the forest with a camera.
Hunters of Helmsley in collaboration with Yorkshire Bakers and Ampleforth Abbey have produced a great new pie which is Slow roasted pork with fennel and Ampleforth Abbey Cider. I enjoyed photographing them and tasting one !!
In Early February I visited Jokkmokk in the Arctic Circle to photograph the Jokkmokk Winter Market which is considered to have a four hundred-year unbroken tradition and is great fun especially the Reindeer Racing !!
The moors at this time of the year are a glorious array of colour with the heather in full bloom, we had a session with Truffle the black Spaniel using her talents working to the gun.
Just spent a week walking in the Italian Dolomites. It’s an area renowned for it’s 3000m jagged peaks of pale , heavily-eroded limestone that shoot up from green pastures and flower strewn meadows. Part of the is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the highlight being a circular walk around the world famous Tre Cime (The Three Peaks) three immense obelisks of sheer rock. The walk starts at the Rifugio Auronzo and you climb to around 2600m.
