If you decide to use Facebook please note that it only supports this website (it is not my personal account). You will only get messages that relate to the website. For example, you will receive notifications of updates or new galleries.

There are 17766 photos on this site (as at 31 December 2017), which represents about 90GB of images. Pictures are reduced in size for internet display. Masters are typically 15 - 35 MB each in TIF format. I do not allow use of my copyright images without permission and use software to identify misuse. All photos carry invisible digital copyright data within the pixels in addition to the copyright overprinting.

I do not load all my images to the website, and some family, private or commercial images are hidden. If you do not see what you want, please ask. You will need a private link and password to access these images.

If you would like to use a picture please contact me at

Please tell me if you find any broken links or other problems. This is a busy site and I will deal with your message as soon as I can. 

Enjoy your visit.
