Hi all, after some time playing around with Photobucket et al, I have finally got around to set up my own web site.

Still very much a work in progress, some old photos you will have seen before and some new ones loaded. More photos and info to come to fully populate the site.

Come and check it out. See you there smile

Good site, H and very easy to navigate. I'm looking forward to seeing more shots as and when you add them...... black and white seems to be very effective...

Thanks for the positive feedback folks.

I have to admit that the site is "out of a box" rather than my own mastery of HTML and Microsoft's Front Page etc. All I have had to do is load up the pictures, add comments and choose the layout and colour scheme from a number of options within.

I must admit it has saved me an awful lot of grief this way.

Great to see you opening your own site, H. I'm linked to a few Clikpic sites on my own site as some of my friends are on there. You'll be fine with them squire. You've made a good start I see, with some very nice shots on show.
Keep it going me old son.

Cheers Ash. I was a little dubious at first, but Clikpic had some good reviews in the photo mags, so I went for it.

Have you had much interest in your work since your media "exposure"?

Well, nothing major H, but things are better than they were before the BBC got in touch so I'm on the right path.
I've been monitoring the statistics section on my CMS and visitor traffic has increased by roughly 30% since the Beeb linked to my site back in August. As a knock on effect I've had quite a bit of correspondance from other photographers and businesses regarding my work. Discussions are taking place and more concrete details will follow.

In the run-up to Christmas I'll be printing, mounting and framing examples of my work and they'll be going on sale at various outlets in the north-east. My site will probably suffer slightly because of this, update-wise, but I'll still be out and about in the Autumn - camera in tow.

Lastly, St Benedict's Hospice in Sunderland have just released their 2009 calendar. Selling approximately 4000 units worldwide, the calendar shows various images of the Sunderland area (Where I'm from) which were taken by local photographers. After the hospice fundraising department advertised in the local press for suitable photo's, I emailed them the link to my site and offered them the ones that I'd shot 'Around Sunderland'. I thought it would be great to have one of mine on their calendar. A few years ago two members of my family spent thir last days in the hospice and received the best possible care during this time. It was fitting that I was recently in a position to offer a little something in return. Anyway, they got back to me and requested FOUR of my photographs!! I was over the moon. One of them is on the front cover. laugh I've got lots of orders for the calendar so I'll be popping down Sunderland Tourist Information Centre over the weekend to buy them.

One of the photographs, the December shot of Penshaw Monument, is also being used as the hospice's 2008 Official Christmas card. Again, this usually sells worldwide and also comes with a link to my site as well as the usual photographer credits. If the hospice makes a wad of cash with the calendars and cards then that will be brilliant. I might even get some more publicity in the process. wink

Cheers for asking, H. smile

Ash, you are too modest. It looks like you have made a significant impact, well done fella.

How great it is to be able to give something back to the hospice that cared for your own. You must feel very privileged to repay those so worthy.

I look forward to seeing you get an article in some the photo mags showcasing your work.

Keep it up. All the very best to ya!

Yes Ash, I have added a few more...check out gallery 5.

No darkroom last week or this week I'm afraid, but I've got 4 contact prints ready for Monday, so should be able to load some more soon.

All the best

Keep snapping!

Just had a look at the additions to the site, H......like them a lot. Also, went back for another look at your other galleries......some excellent shots there. Black and white seems to be so much more atmospheric for certain shots......I look forward to seeing more!

I just noticed the photo of the tree in gallery 5, H. For me, your b/w nature shots invoke Ansel Adams a bit. He is another one of my favorite photographers.

I've just had a look at your gallery pics. Love the Corfe Castle shot on 2. Castles are one of my fave subjects - remember going there as a kid.

Also like the JMJ "skull" shot on 3.

One little disappointment. Shame your name covers the Corfe Castle shot on gallery 5.

Really enjoyed looking at them all.

Hi H

Don't now why I didn't see this before. Terrific pictures and they brought back some memories. Mrs Havocman and myself used to live in Poole and some of the areas that you have shown are where we used to go walking of a weekend.

Cheers

Pete

I've been in the darkroom again and have come out blinking into the sunlight with a load of black and white prints, some old and some new. For the moment, I've posted them on Photobucket at http://s248.photobucket.com/albums/gg166/H_____/?newest=1 and will be uploading them on my own site shortly. laugh

Lovely shots H - black and white rules for some types of shot; far better than colour in some circumstances. Lovely tones in that last one.

Hi guys, I had the opportunity to see Gary Numan at Wolverhampton Civic Hall on Monday night to see "The Pleasure Principle" tour and a mighty fine show it was too. The show was two halves with the Pleasure Principle played all the way through (I think...) and later stuff in the second half, but with a smattering of Tubeway Army too with "Are Friends...? and Down in The Park.

I met our very own Mr Harris who was lucky enough to be in the Press Pit with his Press Pass and had a good ole natter too!

I managed to get a reasonable viewpoint to the right of the stage and got some good pictures of Gary.

Was using a second hand Fuji Bridge Camera that I acquired recently because I'd been clumsy enough to drop it and break the LCD screen on the back, so I had to replace my mate's camera with a new one and I had the old one.

The pictures are definitely the best I've ever got at a Numan show. The lighting is always dark and misty with Dry Ice, so getting good clear shots has always been a problem, so I'm really pleased with these. laugh

I'll be putting some up on my site shortly, but these should give you a taster....

All the best

H












Oh and one more thing....If there's anyone who could find a way to a Press Pass for the Manchester show....you know the rest!

We were about six back from the front so there wasn't much hope of getting some good shots with my compact. Grabbed half a dozen half-decent ones. Mr Harris musta got some good un's eh.
Come to think of it, I still haven't seen his 'Return To Eden' shots.

That must have been when I did I think, at Wembley Arena. Up until that point I'd been a fan but they were pants and it put me right off them! Martyn played a couple of songs off his Counterfeit ep (which I had bought and liked) but sounded like he was playing guitar with mittens on that night. Dave running round shouting "oh yeah!" for 2 hours didn't make it any better! bemused

They've obviously got better since then. smile

Hi guys, thanks for your positive comments. I've been quiet on EV over the new year, but busy with the camera. I've shot a dozen rolls of film and about 400 digital shots too. God knows how I'll find the time to get all the printing done...

I'm planning to do a big overhaul on the site soon as it needs a refresh and to get a portfolio done so I can start getting myself in the market...

I think 2010 will be very interesting year

Hope you all have a productive one!

All the best
