Photo Essays ...

To get a feel again for the tight 50mm I have decided to do a series of small photo essays in the style of the 1950's and 1960's, the years of my youth. Black and white with a graded filter for dramatic skies, more to look at and less colour distraction.

Last days of Roodlands Hospital ...

November 2019: The last buildings of the old Roodlands Hospital in Haddington are about to be demolished. Perhaps a good time time to record some of these before they are no more. Visit this album on Flickr to get more details about these images. You will also find more images in this series on Flickr.

Photographs with people, numberplates and other recognisable markings or branding, generally known as editorials, cannot be used for commercial purposes. The images I post on-line are generally 1800x1200 pixels and they all carry a watermark, but if you would like high resolution copies of these photos (up to 6000x4000 pixels) without the watermark, please get in touch as I may offer material for sale. Some of this material may also be available on Shutterstock. For all black and white images I will also have a colour equivalent. I do not do photoshoots or other commersial work, but I'm always open for ideas.
