New Fire (Exclusive)

I found these two images in my collection and forgot that I had done them. I must have finished these at some point last year and for whatever reasons chosen not to post them; maybe I wasn’t happy with them at the time, but I think that they are good enough and have decided that the first place that I shall show these is my blog, rather than flickr, for a change. So, here they are, for your consideration…
“Droplet Of Fire” (Blog EXCLUSIVE)
“Constant Reminder” (Blog EXCLUSIVE)
These images will not be posted on Flickr on any other photo sharing sites yet, at least. 
Prints are available of all my work which appears on Flickr or any other of my sites (with the exception of exclusively licensed works) so please, feel free to enquire via Message etc… for pricing and availability.

For more info of my work and services, please check out my profile for details.

Face In The Flame: 93,000 hits & Licenced

Ever since I took this image over two and half years ago, I knew that it was a good en, but that belief has finally paid off. There has always been some interest in this and all my fire images since I began the set back in 2008, and I had in fact, already sold this image once, though for a modest fee, to a company who wished to use this on there website and have allowed people to use this within their own personal projects.

But it wasn’t until last month that the image finally yielded it potential, and I was made a four figure offer for exclusive rights for the next 2 years.

“FACE IN THE FLAME” continues to build on its view count, which has now reached over 93,000 hits on Flickr and has also featured at Number 1 on Google’s image search for “flame” Again, thanks to everyone who has supported this image and all my work.

Posted on Flickr on the 96th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, (just in case anyone was interested…) back in April 2008, it has since stormed away to become my most successful picture ever. It was taken my Nikon D40, and the efix data is available on photo page @ Flickr. (Click on the image)

The Eaton Flames

This is a collection of images from the Irlam Bonfire on Friday night, this time taken by my girlfriend’s children. I like all these pictures, all showing the fire at its’ best, just before it collapsed, as they invariably do…

the seventh idol comic; remembered


3 images towards the end of this post contain elements of nudity that may be offensive or inappropriate to sensitive readers or children. Please beware, but ALL the images are CGI RENDERS and are in the context of story telling only.


Some of you may remember that in 2006 I began a project called “THE SEVENTH IDOL”. It was primarily an attempt at an online comic but whilst in some ways it was successful, in many others, it wasn’t.


My plan was to create a rendered comic and associated websites etc, and in that way, I learned a lot about website construction, rendering with programs such as Daz 3D and Bryce, as well as becoming members of such online communities as DeviantART and this very site, WordPress.

A little backstory: I’ve been a budding writer since I was 16 and have generally written screen & teleplays, but that have dabbled in many other forms such as short stories, novels, poetry and comic books, and have considered giving songwriting a go to boot!

Journey_Trough_The_Labyrinth_by_nEopolThe 2006 comic had three issues, with the first effectively being a double, but its major flaw that it was too rooted in screenplay writing and plotting, and I could not get my head around the methods of telling the story through a comic, let alone the technical problems of learning new software such as Daz 3D and the highly complex Bryce. Now I’m sure some people would have something to say about Bryce being complicated but to me it was! But I managed to get a few good renders out of it so I was somewhat happy.

 Some of the more obvious drawbacks at the time regarding my Daz 3D work, was the lack of skin textures and other details, aswell as costumes. I hope to showcase some of the improved models and sample clips from the presently abandoned animated version soon.

The comic was made up of several key elements and these were: –

– Background photographs, many of which were taken locally, in Manchester.

After three issues and the resolution of the initial plotline, I put the project on hold and felt that I had learned a lot of  the do’s and don’ts but never really got back into it as I had intended. Life, as it often does, got in the way.


I do very much hope to try this again with the knowledge that I had acquired over the years and was very keen to try animation, which I have tested but still have technical reasons as to why I can’t proceed right now. But here’s a taste of  the original, which for all it’s faults, I must admit, I’m still proud of. Some of the imagery in this issue is in my opinion very good, but the pacing is way to slow and is too dialogue heavy.

Better luck next time…

There are more images available on Flickr & DeviantART.


Anyway, here is the first issue for old times sake…

Windermere Airshow @ Bowness

This photoset covers the Windermere Airshow last weekend, which was held at Bowness, on the shores of Lake Windermere, in the Lake District.

In all fairness it wasn’t the best airshow I had seen but it had a few notable moments and a few are captured here.

The U.S. Mustang was quite a site, and the sound was equally as inpressive.

The crowd seemed to agree, but still the mood was quiet as we had to wait a long time between planes..

The aerobatics where impressive, though simple…

But this had to be the crowning show of the day. The Vulcan Bomber thundered accross the otherwise peaceful Cumbrian sky, roaring with fury. The site was as impressive as the deafoning blasts of sound.

N.B. All (Exlusive to WordPress) images were so at the time of publishing but may well be avialable on Flickr or other sites afterwards.
