Former Fotopic galleries - My collection of on-line images were previously hosted by Fotopic but that company folded. Although a rescue package was announced it failed to materialise leaving me with a two-fold problem; I didn't like the front-end design of most of the available commercial/proprietary options like Flikr (why I was using Fotopic in the first place) plus lack of time to develop something myself from scratch using the album software that is out there. This delayed rebuilding of my galleries on this website although I did create several albums on Facebook. (Rebuild commenced here in May 2013.)

Exhibition displays

I have a set of professional quality display boards with lighting.  This page gives basic details of the photographic exhibitions either already prepared or work in progress.  In 2006 & 2007 I concentrated on preparing several new digitally projected shows.  For 2008 I therefore prepared a new exhibition called "A Yorkshire selection" first shown at the 2008 York Model Rly Show.  

Existing shows have new material regularly added to vary the display when the displays are re-booked.

"A Yorkshire selection" - . As I have been photographing aspects of the Yorkshire rail scene since 1962, and seriously since the mid-1970s, a new print collection covering Yorkshire was ultimately inevitable This will cover the Yorkshire rail scene past and current and will be regularly updated with pictures rotated as appropriate.   The launch show in 2008 featured a blend of steam, diesel and electric traction from several date periods.  The traction shown will cover varying weather conditions and both regular service and preservation contexts.  Additional material added during late 2009.

"Steam + heat = steam"  A selection of photographs of the steam locomotive in action at several locations throughout the country.  The selection can be varied for return visits.

"Beyond three quarter front" A look at aspects of railway photography beyond the usual visual, three quarter front, approach.

"A compact collection." - A selection of printed photographs taken with compact cameras, shown at A3 size.  Reason for the collection is to show the contemporary scene.  Additionally it shows how good images can be taken without the need for an expensive SLR and the benefits of keeping a camera with you when traveling.

“WWW – World Wide Web or is it?” A selection of my photographs taken over roughly a forty year period of the route from Waterloo to Weymouth and the W’s on route. Launched in October 2005 the shown selection will be variable.  On-going work in progress as further archive material is scanned/printed.

45 Min film version now also available.
