Competition Winners Selected

The prize draw has been done for the competition that I ran in B+W Photography magazine with Harman / Ilford providing product prizes too.

All winners won a place on a special landscape photography course with me in Eskdale in the Lake District on 11th July.

1st prize and £250 Harman / Ilford products: Mark Thompson from Macclesfield.
2nd prize and £150 Harman / Ilford products: John Duder from Walsall
3rd prize and £100 Harman / Ilford products: Anna Allen from Cambridge

The competition was a prize draw so photographic competence was not considered so all entrants had an equal chance of winning.
The winners pictures will also be displayed on my main web site and in B+W photo magazine and will probably be displayed on the Harman / Ilford stand at Focus on Imaging at the NEC in March.
Pretty good exposure you and your work for a free competition!

Henley on Thames Art and Craft Fair

We set up today for an art and craft fair near Henley on Thames with Craft in Focus, on the Henley to Marlow road.

If you visit we are in marquee A stand 24, quite near the main entrance.

There are about 180 exhibitors in 6 marquees and outdoors.

If you are able to come and see us and have a chat. There are quite a few new pictures, my new Lake District book and courses.

Am keeping fingers crossed that my bad back holds up. Had some muscle spasms yesterday and it feels weak all the time now. Hoping that the usual exercises, Voltarol and Diazepam will keep it under control until I can give it a bit of a break next week.

Still 1 place on Peak District course in 2 weeks from a cancellation and 1 place on the darkroom course the same weekend.

Lake District Trip

The 15 new Lake District images mentioned in my last post are now on my web site. We have also changed the Favourites page so that you can make your selections and then email a link so that your friends can see the same images before you make your purchase or just for interest.

Saturday we are off to Eskdale for the next Lake District landscape photography course, based in the Stanley House bed and breakfast. The forecast is good so will keep fingers crossed the weather matches it.

Today I was scanning negatives for use as possible posters by International Graphics Walmsley GmbH. They included 12 city shots of New York, Paris and London; 7 down, 5 to go. I have also been working on a possible US calendar with someone we met at a trade show that we did in May 2008 in New York. Hope it comes off.
