Slow shutter Seaham on an icy November night. I have a lot of respect for the determination of the three people fishing from the lighthouse, it was zero degrees and dropping by the time we left. With @parkphotography77

Shot a few months back in the former mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog in Wales. The scale of the mounds of slate compared to the perilously close buildings is stunning. One of those 'Stop the car!' moments with @walt0ne.

Wonderful to finally film and photograph @alison._.diamond , I've only been trying to get the opportunity for about five years!
A passionate community artist, printmaker and tutor, who has been an absolutely vital part of my recent journey. Her work is absolutely outstanding.

Part of a project on artists for the final year of my photography degree at Sunderland University.

One of my favourite places, I spend a lot of time here, absorbing the silence, interrupted intermittently by the twittering of songbirds or the to and fro of pheasant calls. This time of year the trees are glistening with conifer captured raindrops and the forest floor glows vibrant green from a carpet of moss. Hours disappear into a maze of winding tracks each leading to another magical place.

Yns Llanddwyn an island off western Anglesey, Wales. In the distance across the water shrouded in cloud, Snowdonia National Park. Photographic nirvana.

Taken in May 2019 on another trip with @walt0ne

How do you measure your standards as an artist? When there is only one of you, how do you know if what you are doing is good enough. Who's opinion is it that matters? How do you know if you are an artist? The debate about whether photography is art has been discussed since its invention. As photographers are we artists or just people who know how to use the equipment? Does it even matter? Am I just some bloke with a camera?

One of my favourite views in the North East. It may not have the grandeur of an angel or a cathedral, but from here I can see so much of the county where generations of my family lived and worked and still do.
It's like looking into the past, there is so much of my heritage here. I stand here regularly wondering what it looked like when the pits were still here, Penshaw in the distance across the road from where Herrington Colliery used to stand, where my Grandfather and his brothers worked. How different things must look now.

Breakwater on New Brighton beach, reminds me of Andrei Tarkovsky's 'Stalker'. My new favourite place to photograph, quite different to when Martin Parr shot ' The Last Resort'. #newbrighton

Spent the afternoon at Blackhill and Consett Park, putting up images from my Watling Wood project from earlier in the year. Twenty prints in total have been put up around the park and will be there until 25th October as part of @connyartfest really enjoyed working with the images again.

The project was submitted as part of my degree course at @sunderlanduni

It doesn't suprise me any more, the destructive nature of people. I have got to give credit to whoever burnt this car out. It was abandoned on moorland about half a mile from a road, down some of the most un-drivable terrain you will come across, it took some real effort to get it there. However, it also means it is going to be incredibly difficult to remove it and the likelihood is that it will remain there indefinitely. Even in the most inhospitable places on earth, miles from civilization, humanity leaves its mark in the form of a burnt out car or a discarded fridge.
