ickledot takes photos - of people 'doing stuff'!
As you will have seen, the photography is centred on rugby union. ickledot loves to capture the passion and athleticism within this wonderful game. Yes, it's great to have a background of thousands of cheering fans but the game is the game, even when viewed only by the proverbial 'one man and his dog'. Played by men, women, girls or boys, it demands speed, strength, teamwork and a willingness to go through levels of pain. ickledot admires the people who play this game so much and he hopes this respect is reflected in his work.
ickledot has been seen on the touchline of many Yorkshire clubs and has also taken photographs of the county's representative sides at senior and junior levels, both men and women. This has taken him to Twickenham no less than three times. In 2015 ickledot became home photographer for Doncaster Knights Rugby Union Club which currently plays in the second tier of English rugby. In the spring of 2016 he was lucky enough to photograph them in their quest for Premiership status, including an exciting second-leg final play-off at Bristol Rugby Club - they won the game but narrowly failed to gain promotion.
ickledot also takes photographs for the fund raising unit of the charity, Sue Ryder, which provides care for those with serious illness.
In the spring of 2015 ickledot held his first exhibition of rugby photographs, Rugby Union Yorkshire, first at Bradford Industrial Museum and then at Leeds Central Library. A booklet of the same name accompanied the display.
ickledot has continued to provide design and digital image processing services for Bradford Industrial Museum. In addition he has also provided photographs for English Heritage at Stott Park Bobbin Mill and Furness Abbey in the Lake District.
Blues in Britain: Since April 2012 ickledot has been designer, photographer and occasional reviewer for this national music publication. He is also resident taker of photographs at Scarborough Blues Festival.
