Last Week’s Shoot – Autumn Woodland

I had a first foray of the autumn into some local woodland to see how the colours are coming along before making a longer walk along the Nidd Gorge later in the month. The first stop was Mackintosh Park, which makes a short but pretty loop walk off the Beryl Burton Cycleway by the River […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Whixley and Allerton Mauleverer

As I mentioned in my September Shoots post most of my shoots recently have been on foot, but I did make one train trip in September (my first since February!) all the way to Cattal – one stop down the line towards York… Although the station is called Cattal, it is halfway between Cattal and […]

September Shoots and an Alamy Milestone!

I’ve added quite a few more local images during September with most of my shoots taking place on foot from here in Knaresborough… Although the days are getting shorter and colder, I’m looking forward to the autumn here as the trees in the Nidd Gorge reach their colourful best. There are already hints of autumn […]

Rudding Gates in Follifoot near Harrogate

Follifoot and Spofforth

Since starting up my outdoor shoots again I’ve been concentrating on local subjects (generally where I can walk to!) with finishing off the selection of images for my 2022 calendar range in mind. One such local walk took me to Follifoot and, as it was a lovely day, on to Spofforth and back to Knaresborough […]

Last Week’s Shoot – Knaresborough

After four months shooting stock images indoors it was great to get out again with a camera last week – though I didn’t go very far, picking a sunny morning for a short walk around Knaresborough to get some local shots for my 2022 calendar range… The castle ruins looked great in the morning sunshine […]

May Food Shoots Roundup

I’ve been continuing with regular food ingredients shoots this month, concentrating mainly on my weekly fruit and veg box deliveries! I’ve been sticking to simple fresh food ideas on plain backgrounds, mainly with high key lighting. Many of the images have been a flat lay style with options including plenty of copy space. This week […]

Oaty Spelt Soda Bread

I’ve made my Oaty Lockdown Loaf quite a few times now, but it’s generally a job for the weekend as it takes quite a few hours from start to finish, so I was looking for a quicker recipe to try for a midweek loaf. I like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s Seedy Rye Soda Bread from his River […]

Oaty Lockdown Loaf

I’ve been unable to get hold of any wholemeal bread flour so far during the lockdown, so when I found my local Sainsbury’s had strong while bread flour last week I grabbed a bag and thought I’d try out a version of Delia Smith’s Oatmeal Bread recipe (as oats seem to be in good supply […]

April Food Shoots Roundup

As I said in my Food Images and Galleries post at the start of the month, I’ve been turning my hand to adding to my collection of food images on Alamy during the lockdown.  Rather than post a Last Week’s Shoot blog for each shoot, I thought I’d just have a summary of some of […]
