As much as I like to travel, I try to shop & work local as much as possible.
These are some of the amazing companies I have both undertaken photography projects for, sell my work through, attend events alongside or use to buy equipment. All these are local to me in the Northern Lake District and all small businesses doing an amazing job promoting our fantastic county while trying to survive in these tough times. Please take the time to visit their websites and ‘shop local’ too.
‘Unique gifts & art by talented artists – Cherrydidi Keswick & Ambleside‘
This amazing local shop has two premises. One in Keswick, the other Ambleside so located right in the heart of the Lake District. Stocked with amazing local art and now a selection of my photographic prints. Still open online but due to re open on June the 25th (subject to government advice). Beautiful artwork online or in-store. Click the logo to visit their website.
Castle Framing, Brampton
I’ve use many framers over the years but have now used Mike for all my printing and framing for 2 years now. If you are in need of an amazing local craftsman who always produces the best prints and frames then please click on the logo to visit his site. A selection of my work is also available there or in-store when allowed to reopen. Mike’s still working though and sending work out via courier.

The Rowley Estates, Blencow
Christine & Charles Rowley run this amazing luxury accommodation business. I used to be their tree surgeon but recently have been undertaking a series of nightscapes of their amazing buildings. A nicer couple you’ll never meet and completely amazing Castles, Halls and cottages to stay in. Another great local business I always enjoy working with.
