Prints and Photography

When it became clear that Manchester was about to change forever, I spent countless unpaid hours (over many years) clambering across rooftops and tramping streets – with tripod, premium Canon ‘L’ lenses and a compass – working out myriad angles and how the fall of seasonal sunlight affected Manchester stone and brickwork: – the project is ongoing, but I’ve built up a library of thousands of original Manchester images.

As expected, most of the city’s best vistas and visages have gone – though not before I captured the the best ones in their glory.   

In tandem with Manchester, I’ve spent years capturing much of England’s North West in its best light, along with football grounds, Lancashire, Ribble and Pendle, North Yorkshire and the Dales, Northumberland, The Cotswolds, London, Edinburgh… not to mention more generic observational gems, some great clubbing images and Spanish architectural jewels like Salamanca and Santiago de Compostela.

I sold my work in Manchester’s legendary Royal Exchange Theatre (Craft) Shop for over 20 years, as well as other outlets like the shop at HOME (formerly Cornerhouse).

As with those great Manchester vistas, outlets for artistic originality in the city have always been scarce, but COVID has all but killed off what once was – the once-successful Royal Exchange Craft shop is now an empty shell.

However, I’ve always preferred a personal approach – and in the absence of quality outlets I decided to go fully analogue and stick with real buyers of quality work in the real world.
Consequently I’ve stayed in touch with many people who’ve bought my work in the past, and they know where to come to fill a bare wall with quality work or fulfil the need for a stunning gift.

From stocking-filler to wall-filling original one-or-one photographic art pieces, on pretty much every available print media.
For those with seeing eyes – Vive la Difference.
