The Grand Pier

    Newer Older

    I made this image on Saturday down at Weston-Super-Mare. I was leading a mono/long exposure workshop with fine photographer, Paul Wheeler.

    We had a great group of photographers from all over the country (including a regular customer of mine, Alex, who let me slip my CF card into his Nikon to take this image as I wasn't carrying my kit at the time - thanks Alex).

    The new pier is very photogenic, especially at dawn when no one is around - it harks back to the 40's and 50's in design with all new neon signs and lighting.

    I have just released a new schedule of workshops through the spring into early summer on my website. You can get a link to it from my Flickr profile page - if you sign up for my newsletter you will get advanced notice of all new workshops first.

      Very dark and moody mate, is that because you took it with a Nikon ;-)

      Looking forward to the workshop next weekend, fingers crossed for the weather!

      Dark and retro. It still reminds you of its glory days.

      The superb art deco style structure contrasts beautifully against the dark moody back drop.
