Road trip around the New Zealand's South Island

Spent a month driving around the South Island of New Zealand. The second time we've been here and very much a favourite destination - stunning scenery, empty roads, great walks and, somewhat surprisingly, pretty well perfect weather during the entire trip.

Royal Photographic Society - Associate Distinction (Travel category)

Statement of Intent: 'Having worked in The Square Mile (London's financial district) for many years, I wanted to try and convey, in this panel of images, what I felt, and still feel, to be the essence and character of 'The City'. In doing this, I'm looking to show the range of people who work here, both as office workers and the people who work to support them and the environment in which they spend their working day'.

Royal Photographic Society Travel Competition - Bronze Medal

Robust negotiations - at the Nizwa Cattle Market, Oman. This takes place every Friday morning – the market starting at 7.00am and finishing a couple of hours later, in time for sala al Jum’ah, the congregational Friday prayers.

The animals are walked around the circular stand at the centre of the market and auctioned off to the highest bidder, a lively scene featuring hundreds of locals, a scattering of tourists and, to quote the Rough Guide, “an overwhelming smell of animal poo”.

National Geographic Traveller Photography CompetitionWinner of the Portrait category.

”Dirty Work, Dyeing Wool” was taken in the depths of the Marrakesh souk - the wool dyeing area. We got talking to one of the owners of a fabric boutique and, after a while, he took us round the corner to show us this almost apocalyptic scene of a worker dyeing the wool - it was dirty, hot and a pungent smell pervaded the air.

The dyer continued for a while, oblivious to our presence, but then turned round - and I took this photograph. We ended up buying a couple of beautiful scarves, the very least we could do to recognise the work that went in to making them.

Landscape Photographer of the Year, 2018. Commended in the Classic category

This image of Godrevy Lighthouse, near St Ives, in Cornwall was taken on one of my regular visits down to St Ives. There are so many different views of the lighthouse and the weather is always changeable and so it is a delight to photograph.

Particularly pleased to receive the Commended commendation - given the 20,000+ entries into the competition. The photograph was included within the Landscape Photographer of the Year Book 12 and exhibited at a number of major stations around the UK during 2018 and 2019.
