New Photos Added – Liverpool 18.03.2012

The weather in Liverpool this Sunday was absolutely beautiful, one of those crisp, sunny Spring days. Despite it being Mother’s Day (sorry mum!) and after a full day of drinking for St Patrick’s, I managed to make it out and take advantage of the weather by taking some photos. All these photos were taken on my 600D, and feature St George’s Hall, St Johns Gardens, the Albert Docks, as well as the Cunard and Liver buildings, and the new Museum of Liverpool. The photos can be viewed here.

Thanks for looking,



New Photos Added: A Coca-Cola Christmas and Manchester

Yet again, I’ve taken far too long to upload some photos that I’ve taken, but at least this time I’ve uploaded two albums worth!

The first date back to December when Coca-Cola’s now infamous “Holidays are coming” truck visited Liverpool One. The big kid in me was far too excited about this, so I had to go and take some photos. They were all taken with my 600D, and I used the event as an opportunity to test a lot of the filters the Canon has onboard. The results can be viewed here.

The second set of photos came from an opportunistic mini shoot I got to do in Manchester, when on a random Sunday in February, the weather was beautiful for taking photos. I had an hour off work, and managed to head down Deansgate taking a few pictures. These can be seen here.

As an aside, the web adress for the site has been altered, to the far less egotistical

Hopefully I’ll get some more photos taken soon.


New Photos Added: Liverpool Cathedral – 29.09.2011

I’ve finally gotten round to uploading some photos I managed to take in September of the Liverpool Anglican cathedral. Although not the tallest building in Liverpool, because of the hill it is situated on, it actually provides the highest vantage point in the city. It’s possible to go up to the very top on the tower, giving you panoramic views of Liverpool and its surrounding areas. All photos were taken with my Canon 600D, using the standard kit lens. You can see them here.

New Photos Added: Liverpool on the Waterfront Festival – September 2011

First of all, apologies that these photos have taken so long to upload. The reason why is both long and uninteresting.

Liverpool on the Waterfront Festival took place in September of this year, and began with the Queen Elizabeth cruiser liner being docked in Liverpool, and ended with the Queen Mary 2 being docked. Here are my photos taken from the festival, using both my Canon 600D, and my smaller Fuji bridge camera. The photos can be viewed here.

Going to be uploading more photos over the newt few days, so keep an eye out.


Social Networks and other updates

So this weekend I went a little social network crazy, adding a whole host of other ways in which to either support my photography (which I hope you will), or simply contact me with ideas/requests/thoughts, anything and everything.

It never ceases to amaze me as well, the ways in which people manage to find my website. For example, site stats yesterday (31st July 2011) showed that my website was found through Google Russia by someone searching for Liverpool city centre.

Thanks also to my first ever email subscriber, really means a lot to have someone who is that interested. I obviously won’t reveal their details on here, but if you’re reading this from an email link, it’s most probably you.

Finally, I’m looking a getting a logo designed for my photos to use as a watermark. I have some current designs, but it really isn’t my strong suit, so anyone who can, please give me a shout.
