Looking out from Pendle Hill

pano_pendle_hill_1500px

Getting closer to the sky; the view from astride the saddle of Pendle hill. Looking towards the village of Sabden: shot on the first warm weekend of spring, with clouds scudding eastwards across the pennines. Although you can barely see them here, paragliders were riding thermals rising from the Ribble valley and up the slopes. The historic Forest of Pendle is perhaps best known for giving its name to a famous witch trial in 1612.

Dogspace: celebrating the Chinese New Year

pano_dogspace_1500px

This eyecatching pack of giant inflatable dogs invaded the genteel elegance of Preston’s Miller Arcade recently, to celebrate the Chinese ‘Year of the Dog’. It was commissioned from north west-based installation artists Spacecadets. This was my submission to the spring 2006 world wide panorama event, based on the theme of ‘borders’. You can read more about this exhibition, and see the full submission here.

Mick Rock photography exhibition at Voxpop

Manchester’s music lovers just got an extra treat to savour: one of the best record selections just got bigger and better, and the city’s musical heritage is captured with a new exhibition by celebrated photographer, Mick Rock. Voxpop have expanded their operations and moved into bespoke premises on Thomas St. in the Northern Quarter. They recently hosted this exhibition as part of the successful Manchester vs Cancer campaign.

Footnote: Soon after putting this online I found out Mick Rock had linked to it on his website. I grew up surrounded by some of Mick’s classic works, and felt honoured to be mentioned by this photographic legend!

The Church of St Philip’s with St Steven, Salford

pano_stphilips_1500px

A panoramic exploration of this delightful late Georgian church, designed in 1825. This Anglican church is still home to regular worship, and remains well-kept and loved. One of the most impressive landmarks in the historic centre of Salford: more information on the church can be found here.

This was my first ‘real’ panorama, after several test shoots elsewhere I felt ready to try out something more ambitious. Thanks to Rev. Andy Salmon for letting me photograph the church.
