It’s been nearly four years since I co-lead my first night photography workshop with good friend Doug Chinnery; Secret London – Gaslights & Alleyways. An idea that I had, to share my particular love of night photography, coupled with some very unusual locations that didn’t tick the ‘mainstream box’ became reality after I joined one of Doug’s one-day workshops about making a business from photography. He liked the sound of my proposed idea and very kindly offered to ‘puppy-walk’ me through my first night…the rest, is history as they say.

 So, after years of running workshops throughout the night it was time for Doug to hand over the mantel to Terry Gibbins and I and so Gilliatt+Gibbins was born. If you are interested, you can read Doug’s ‘Good-Night’ blog HERE.

We’d love to know what you think so if you get a chance, please pop over and take a look…you’ll find a warm welcome at Gilliatt+Gibbin. We thought it was about time that we created a dedicated space for our Workshops and Tours…we still have our own personal sites but it made sense to ‘bite the bullet’ so to speak and have a landing page for anyone interested in joining us on those tours to have everything to hand, in one place.

Light & Land on the Mall....New Exhibition!  2nd - 10th August 2015

I am delighted to be one of the artists exhibiting at this year's landscape photography exhibition – this time entitled Light and Land on The Mall - which takes place from 2nd to 10th August at The Mall Galleries in London. Admission is free and our exhibition will span the Main Gallery, the North Gallery and the Threadneedle Space. Opening hours are 10am to 5pm each day.

The exhibition follows on from the very successful ‘Year of the Print’ in 2014 - artists were invited as past workshop participants to take part in an exhibition to really celebrate the concept of printing their images and not just viewing them on a screen. 

Light and Land on The Mall celebrates the art of landscape photography and will showcase works from all around the world, this time with over 50 exhibitors. The exhibition is a fantastic opportunity to view some incredible landscape photography, and we are also running a series of talks by some of our expert leaders, as well as offering critique sessions.

National Theatre, London.

I had a fabulous time at the official opening of the Take a View exhibition at the National Theatre on the Southbank. All the images that made the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2013 book were on display for all to see.

The exhibition runs until the 9th February and is well worth a visit.  The images were also projected on the wall outside the theatre for maximum effect. A big Thank You to Paul Mellor for some fantastic images!
