British Willdife Reference Photos – available NOW!

As you all probably know, I have previously released two volumes of free to use reference photos. I realized a long time ago that the problem most artists have, especially at the novice stage, is that they just don’t have or struggle to get, their own great reference photos to paint from. and as you know, just stealing photos off the net or out of books is well….. stealing! and breaking copyright laws.

So I decided to get a load of my photos together and put them on a CD at a very high resolution so artists could print them out or look at them on their computer screens whilst they painted, confident in the knowledge that they could sell their paintings etc without any copyright worries.

Well volumes 1 & 2 concentrated on a wide variety of wildlife from big cats to a Rhino’s eye! and they were a great success, but for volume 3 I wanted to do something quite different. so I teamed up with my longtime friend and wildlife photographer Paul Lloyd and we came up with the idea of doing British Wildlife – Flora & Fauna. Combining our photo archives we gathered together a huge array of photos, from wild badgers to butterflies / dragonflies and even Fungi! There really is something for everyone on this disc. You could paint for years from it.

And all for approx 17 pence (about 27 cents!) per photo!

You can find out more, with a list of species included etc on my site

Here are a few photos as examples

Local Photographs – The Black Mountains

Some photographs I took locally on the weekend. The area is the Black Mountains in South Wales, UK.

Rape oil fields (above) might not b egreat for our health, but they are fantastic subjects to photograph 🙂

Some scenes just need to be done as a panoramic just to show the vastness (above).

The 2 photos above are done in HDR deliberately pushing the contrast in the clouds to give a surreal effect – hope you like them.

Something Different from me- Coastal Photographs (Three Cliffs Bay – Swansea)

We are currently enjoying some fantastic weather in Wales (for a change), so I took some time away from the studion to visit Three Cliffs Bay, on the Gower coast, approx 1 1/2 hrs from my home.

Here are just 3 ot the 50 or so photos I took that day.

Just following my passion for art is my passion for photography – I just love being out in nature no matter what, So I thought I would share with you some photographs I took this Saturday around the Swansea (Wales) area.
