‘Universe’ – Marie Marx

I’m lucky to be able to say I’ve worked with quite a few local artists and bands over the last few years and this is a lady I have a long standing professional relationship with, and she is also a great friend. So I’m sat with the wonderful Marie Marx, a singer/songwriter based in Teesside, …

Hi – It’s been a little while….

Hi Again Everyone! It’s been a little while since my last EnA Photography blog and that’s due to a number of reasons…. Firstly, as we move out of the lockdown restrictions life appears to be getting generally busier than it has been for a few months, which is no bad thing right? I am looking …

Black and White or Colour…

…….It’s all just a matter of preference. It’s the age old question isn’t it, black and white or colour? Well it strictly isn’t black and white, there are varying levels of each of those but there are also lots of grey’s in there too, which is why it is more accurately called Monochrome. For me …

All the pretty things….

Hi again everyone, how are we all doing? Truth be told I’ve not been doing a great deal of photography over recent weeks due to not being able to go where I want to go and the day job needing more from me recently. What I have been doing away in the background is adding …

Yes, we are all missing gigs…

There are many things I love about Teesside, but one thing that stands out for me is the local music scene, and it’s where my photography started. I have always loved the Teesside music scene, from my first gig going outings in the 80’s with bands like President, The Lovehearts, Glass Echo and Empires and …

Wedding Photography – my approach…..

The first thing to say is that every wedding is very different, unique in fact. So to that end I offer a wedding photography service that is built completely around the wants and needs of the couple, whilst also offering advice, guidance and my own experience. Your Day……. Your Way I don’t sell ‘off the …

Thoughts on my landscape photography

I just want to spend a little while talking about how I approach landscape photography. Now this is not me saying this is the right way, it’s just my way, and my way has changed quite a lot since I first started. Photographing any landscape, street scene, mountains, rivers, lakes or architecture takes all sorts …

Happy Sunday everyone, hope you are all well. Tonight's 'Story of the Shot' is this fine art edit of Roseberry Topping.

It was taken on 11th October 2020, which from memory was a Sunday, at 1.55pm from the car park and viewing area at Carlton Bank in North Yorkshire. My partner and I were out and about all over the moors that day and stopped here for a much-needed coffee and a break. Of course that area, and Roseberry Topping, have been photographed a million times and so my idea for that day was to get some shots worthy of turning into artwork rather than the standard landscape shots of which there are millions from this area. So I set the camera to focus on the trees in the foreground and let the Topping background fade into the distance. We finished our coffee and headed off to the next location.

Once home I dropped the raw photo into Adobe Lightroom and spent some time working on it, converting it from what I could see through the lens a couple of hours before to the idea I had in my head. Now I don’t use Photoshop so everything you see in this finished image was there in the first place and all the colours are real. It was mid-autumn and so I helped the natural greens and browns shine through and I added a little grain to the sky to emphasise the type of day that it was.

It made me think of a brilliant short poem by local poet Louis Spence simply called ‘Roseberry Topping’, here’s a couple of excerpts from it:

She stands beautiful, pride in the sky,
First lady of my countryside
Watching over both town and tide
I'm gonna climb her one more time before I die.

She stands magical in summer glow
Autumn's colours enhance her so
The Winter Maiden, decked out in snow
Showers in Spring begin again her wondrous show.

If you want the technical information (and some people do) then it was taken on a Nikon D7100 with my 17-50mm Sigma wide angle lens, aperture was f11, shutter speed 1/500th of a second and ISO was set to 100. It was edited in Adobe Lightroom.

Prints Available.

Sunset at Steetley Pier, one of my happy places. I'm constantly surprised by the amount of people who don't know where it is or have never been.

So much history, beautiful in summer and winter, amazing sunsets, miles of empty beach.

My most popular image of 2021, strangely I'm not a big fan of colour pop but was done especially for a customer a couple of years ago and has been my biggest seller this year.⁠
