Badger Watching At Dinefwr

Did you know you could go badger watching at Dinefwr near Llandeilo? No nor did I! I always thought that badgers came out at night and that it’d be too dark to photograph them but again that’s not the case. During the summer you can visit a special hide to watch the badgers in action…. Read More

Over the weekend it was the Wales National Air Show. This is a free event which takes place in Swansea and this year there were displays from The Red Arrows, Sea King Rescue, Team Raven and Tigers Parachute Display Team.

Spanish Ruin Sunset

I’ve recently come back from a holiday in Spain so the next few blogs will probably be about shots taken during that time. Along with Jude, I spent a lovely week in a town called Calasparra, which is North of Murcia. It’s not your typical Spanish holiday destination as it’s not near the coast, but… Read More

Sunset At Sandy Water Park

The wonderful thing about photography is that sometimes you don’t need to go too far from home to capture a shot. On Sunday (5th April) the sky in Llanelli was looking perfect for a beautiful sunset so we jumped into the car with the intention of heading to Burry Port. However as we passed Sandy… Read More

Sunset At Three Cliffs Bay

Last week I was speaking to a landscape photographer. He explained about the meticulous planning involved in getting his shots and he mentioned using simple tools such as a map, tide times and sunset compass to determine the best times to visit locations. Using these tips – and being in the area – it seemed… Read More

Positive Energy – Painting With Light

Each year at Llanelli Photographic Society we have a Special Effects competition. Most effects tend to be composites done in Photoshop and that’s not something I’m too hot on. So my entries tend to be of the playing with light ilk. I quite like this style of photography and would like to do a bit… Read More

Shooting Vampires At Pembrey

On Sunday 8th February I was lucky enough to be invited to Pembrey Country Park to shoot vampires! Creative Arts Wales were holding a photoshoot and wanted images to help promote an up and coming event that they’re planning. They wanted a selection of images using their models and were happy for members of Llanelli… Read More

A First Step On To Instagram

If there’s one thing I’m not good at – it’s getting my images out there for people to see and building a bigger audience. The website though has had a bit of a sort out and I’ve started posting regularly on Twitter and Facebook. So now it’s time to take a look at Instagram. I… Read More

Paxton Tower In The Snow

Whilst there’s been snow in places around The UK, here in South Wales it’s so far been limited to a few flurries and only on high ground. That said I was fortunate to find a snow scene at Paxton Tower. This monument which was apparently erected in honour of Lord Nelson can be found near… Read More

The Porthcawl Storm Yeti Wave

When The UK is hit by storms it’s inevitable that a stock image of Porthcawl Lighthouse being swamped by large waves will be used by multiple media outlets to demonstrate just how bad the weather has been. Waves over the lighthouse is a classic shot and with a high tide coinciding with stormy weather last… Read More
