Photography

I’ve had an interest in photography for as long as I can recall. It’s a passion I picked up from my father; my first camera was an SLR he gave me as a present one year when I was a lot younger.

I literally can’t even remember not owning that camera it was so long ago. It served me well for many years, until digital cameras came along. Been through a compact digital and two bridges since then (all Fujifilm), and am currently wielding a Nikon D5300 and a Nikon Coolpix P900.

My Photos on Things

Using redbubble I have made a number of my photos available to buy on a wide variety of things, including (but not limited to): postcards, canvas prints, iPhone cases, throw pillows, laptop skins, mugs, notebooks, and mini skirts.

I've bought several of them myself, both for me and for friends & family, and the quality of the finished product has always been very high.

Battle of Stamford Bridge Tapestry

The Stamford Bridge Tapestry commemorates the Battle of Stamford Bridge (September 25, 1066), when the Saxons defeated the Vikings so comprehensively that almost an entire generation of Viking warriors was wiped out.
