I appreciate people looking at my art and please leave a comment against any pictures you view.

I have completed my own version of “100 strangers” project by taking portraits of Vikings and Romans in York. I would highly recommend this project to anyone. No need to produced ‘antique’ photos – just Google “100 strangers project”.

I’m a full time biologist, and part time photographer living in the wonderful historic city of York, England. York is one of the most photographed cities in England, so I like to make my pictures a bit distinctive and different from the run of the mill millions of images that exist of York. My most recent photo exhibition was at York’s Theatre Royal in September 2012.

I have helped to run the Friends of Rowntree Park Photography Competition which received over 80 entries in 2012 and 2013. I’ve also worked on a project to record the historic York Walls in 2013.

Rowntree Park Photo Competition publicity

Today, Wednesday 15th May, The Press in York published a nice article promoting the Friends of Rowntree Park Photography competition. Four previous top photographs are in the article. / To tie in with the timing, I have also put up four posters on the nearby notice boards and given posters and leaflets to six local schools.
