The blast nozzle of a supersonic engine test cell. This particular one, Cell 3 used to test engines of planes such as the Tornado and the Typhoon Euro Fighter. Located in an incredible place called Pyestock NGTE (National Gas Turbine Establishment) in Fleet, Hampshire, UK. Sadly now gone for good due to being demolished. A very sad loss for the UK's industrial heritage.

Cell 1 jet engine test area at the now demolished Pyestock NGTE.

This shot took me ages, lots of lighting changes and brackets. But it came out how I hoped it would.

Shot in 5 exposures (each of the five shots was a 9 shot bracket and then HDR'd). 4 shots with my Scurion 1300 facing towards the camera and gradually being moved down the tunnel to counteract the inverse square law, illuminating the tunnel evenly. The final shot with the light facing away from camera, illuminating the far end. All five exposures blended together in PS afterwards. Happy days!

Somewhere beneath London lies this vast space, rows upon rows of brick arches running in all directions. This was an old Victorian reservoir. The echo in here had fantastic delay to it, my whoop coming back to me around four seconds after it left my mouth. Shot using around 40 exposures with the single light source in different positions and comped together afterwards.

A view across the moat at Bodiam Castle, taken about 40 mins after sunset. The castle was illuminated using my Scurion 1500. Pentax K1. Manfrotto 55 carbon.

Shot during my night off during my companies 3 days up in London for our yearly Trade fair. Managed to rack up quite a bit of walking between locations, covering places in the city to the South Bank. Also this was a lighting test for my new Scurion 1500 light source, kindly donated by Scurion to help with my underground work.

The stunning interior of a Victorian era subterranean reservoir. Buried beneath a busy and public place in London, most Londoners pass over or by this location everyday without ever knowing of its existence. Pentax 645Z and Scurion Lamps for the lighting.

Shot inside my second cistern beneath London. This time a circular affair with a central hub and pillars forming spokes radiating outwards from the centre. The echo in here blew the previous reservoir out of the water, standing at the curved outer edge, you could whisper and here it returning to you seconds later. Another fantastic location.

Locked up and virtually unused since the second world war this deep subterranean bomb shelter is now being given a new lease of life by two entrepreneurs. Leased from the local authorities Steve and Richard are using the space for their business venture. With top London restaurants already lending their support they plan to produce hard to grow vegetables and leafy salads using UV lights and hydroponics in carefully controlled environments. The underground space is ideal as the problems associated with the British weather have been removed from the equation. They have been getting a lot of exposure in the press and they kindly agreed to allow me in to shoot the tunnels, in return I did them some promo images that are a little different from the other PR ones they have been doing of late.

 

This was the first of several permission trips I have had in the pipeline. We have agreed that I will go back at some point for more shooting as it's just so big down there.

 

Shot using Scurion lamps, an incredibly bright light source that can be used for anything from caving right through to location photography. www.scurion.ch/jm/

This is what I like about photography as a hobby. You see a location online or in a magazine and one day, sometimes years in the future you find yourself standing in that photo seeing it in the flesh for the first time. Todays trip to an image I saw 4 - 5 years ago felt like a pilgrimage or sorts.

Another quick trip into this vast underground reservoir beneath London. I just can't keep away from it ;)

This time I wanted to try out a new technique for lighting it that didn't involve 2 hours of moving the light source for each new shot. This time I simply put the camera on bulb setting and walked down either side of this lane, shining my lamp sideways as I did. Then I repeated the process from the opposite side and then blended the two halves together in post to get this end result.

Whilst I was in there alone, I heard voices echoing in the distance and guessed I was about to be busted or meet more fellow photographers. Turned out to be the latter. Nice to meet you Rez, DMAX303 and Squib Pig.

Got to explore a different lava tube on Lanzarote this time. Naturalistas is a large walking sized tube that is situated on the center of the island on the fringes of the large lava flows from the 19th century eruptions. This place is close to one of the sinkhole entrances. A large column in the center of the passage was making the lava part ways around it and you can see the movement in the surface of a river of now solidified rock as it did. Being inside this tube alone and at midnight right out in the wilderness of the island was a enlivening experience, a feast for the senses.

 

Lava tubes form when a river of molten rock is cooled by the air temperature along its surface. The lava cools quickest there and forms a thin roof whilst the still molten lava flows beneath. Eventually the eruption stops and the molten rock flows through the tube and leaves behind a hollow space. Many lava tubes are often very close to the surface as a result.

 

Shot using a very laborious technique where the light source is placed to light a specific part of the scene and then moved to light another spot and then again until all parts you want have been lit, afterwards the scene is blended together in PS to create the finished composite.

Part of Pyestock Cell 3 jet engine testing area, located underground to minimise noise pollution.

I have since learned that the circular ribbed thing beyond me would have had a cooled liquid circulating through it, its purpose was to cool the hot vapours blasting through here as they passed through the wind tunnel and the engine testing area. The rods protruding from the floor were inhibitor torches, kind of like large bunsen burners. Their job was to ignite any remaining fuel particles that did not get ignited within the engine and so stopping 'potentially explosive' chemicals building up further down the cell.

Reminds me visually of the scene at the end of Matrix Revolutions where Neo goes to the Machine City and speaks with the head AI robot.

This photo was taken in Dec 2012 when water levels were higher than normal

The waterfall is at the lower part of the cave systerm and feeds Charterhouse cave.

The water emerges at Goughs cave in Cheddar Gorge

 

The photo was taken using a Scurion Led head lamp using a light painting technique over a six second period

Being the up n at em party type that I am I thought I would head out into my home town with hours to go before the new year and take some pictures of vents and other inanimate objects :)

Party on!

Backlit shot in the basement corridors at Chateau Noisy.

Not sure about this one, kind of like it but can't put my finger on what it is that's bothering me about it.

Hidden inside a large geodesic dome way out in the European countryside is a radar listening post. Once an active military site, now simply another derelict spot on the UE photography trail. It does make for a good subject however. I have tried to shoot it in a way that at least differs a bit from the multitude of other shots out there.

 

This image was one of 18 images featured in a Yahoo News article on my photography: uk.news.yahoo.com/lightbox/secret-tourist-spots-18-haunti...

 

Added a bit of extra light to the underside of the dish using my Scurion 1500 lamp. An absolutely fantastic lamp.

Three shots stitched together, I used a Scurion K for lighting.

One of the tight entrance squeezes!

A large ventilation fan from both sides deep under the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Spring Quarry was requisitioned by the MOD during 1922 and by 1925 had been converted from a bath stone quarry into a military storage bunker for munitions and parts. The rotating door on the left shot was to be closed during a gas attack. We were the first photographers to have shot down there with the owners permission in 13 years. Spring Quarry is an adjoining underground space to Burlington, the cold war bunker set up for government and whitehall officials in the event of a Russian nuclear attack.
