I have been a keen photographer since childhood and studied it through college as one of the subjects of my technical illustration course. With the advent of digital photography, my enthusiasm was re-awakened. Photographs on the site have been taken with an assortment of digital cameras, from compacts to Canon DSLRs. All of the scenery shots are taken within the north west of England, largely in Lancashire and Cumbria.
My photographs are organised roughly into galleries as indicated by the image links below and some images may be duplicated in different sections where they fit more than one theme. The Live Music photos are in a separate portfolio of live music photographs at www.boo-photos.co.uk.
Due to domestic circumstances, the site hasn't been updated recently as often as I'd intend and the whole portfolio is long overdue for an overhaul. My most recent work is at a photo-sharing site; my gallery at Image Event.
I also have a less formal series of blog style tutorials - often based on forum posts for regularly occuring subjects - including one on getting the best from a compact camera for gig photography.
Original Hand Crafted Jewellery
One of my other hobbies is making jewellery, although it has become pretty serious in recent times and I now sell on-line and locally in various venues. I have my own on-line shop selling my designs, at Boo's Hand Crafted Jewellery - please feel free to pay me a visit and browse through the collection.
Some of the photographs on the site are available for stock use. If you have a particular use in mind for any of the photos you see, please contact me with details of your proposed use and a fee will be quoted, depending on the suitability of the original file for the proposed end use and in line with fair market values. Not all images will be of a suitable resolution for some processes, so please send final print sizes where appropriate.
None of my photographs on any of the sites referenced are royalty free and must not be used in any way, even for non-commercial use, unless a temporary copyright licence is directly negotiated. I am happy to consider any requests for not-for profit uses, but reserve the right to refuse permission.
The copyright on all images belongs to Boo and images must not be used elsewhere without expressed written permission, but if you are interested in any image, please contact me explaining your potential use and I'll be happy to consider all requests. All copyright infringements are pursued.
