Nostell Priory Photography 2019 Tim Hill

Nostell Priory Photography Walk February 2019

Nostell Priory – https://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/nostell Out walking in the winter sunshine this morning with the family, it was -6C (21F) overnight so the air was fresh and bracing! Beautiful to see the first flowers of 2019 in all their glory. It is still very much winter here in Yorkshire but the first signs are there that spring is just around the corner, a wonderful and exciting time of year. Snapshots with minimal processing, taken with the Fujifilm XT-2 and 55-200mm long […]

Lots of Photoshop, little photography

Hey All, Not going out photographing has really infused me to go out photographing, I had plans for this morning, photographing near home, but they did not happen, no worries, the sunrise was pants 😉 Instead, I have enjoyed putting in many Photoshop hours and, less enjoyable, product linking hours to make my online store look better, call this version 2.0, after not being happy with version 1.0 I will end this quick scribble with a BIG HELLO to my […]

Spurn Point Sunrise

My best images will be for sale

Well, this is new! After a few people mailed me asking where they could buy my pictures, prints and things showing some of my best images, I finally have time to offer my best work for sale in various forms. Rather than try and do all myself and to offer a broader range of quality products I turned to the ClickASnap UK storefront which I trust both in quality of product and to quickly distribute all over the world, safely […]

So, Why Did I Abondon Social Media and Many Friends?

A: Family, Photography and health… I am not proud of the way I left social media and the many friends I let down and left wondering if I was OK. To those, I now say I am profoundly sorry, friends will always be thought of and remembered as friends, some I have known through photography and social media since 2013 when I bought my first DSLR. The day before Christmas Eve I spent 12 hours reading and replying to social […]

Ferrybridge Locks and decommissioned Ferrybridge 'C' coal fired Power Station

Switched from Nikon to Fujifilm

Switched from one camera system to another is something I see all the time on YouTube and quite frankly it bores the tits off of me, yet here I am doing almost exactly the same, please bear with me… It took me over a year and some photography work to earn enough to buy a replacement to my much loved Nikon D7100, but the money was only half the story, my biggest headache and torment was what to spend my […]

Autumn Walk in Yorkshire

Autumn Photography in Yorkshire

Autumn colours have faded here in the UK and we are well into Winter, it’s always nice to look back on a few images showing the true beauty and colour of an Autumn walk. These images were all taken at Nostell Priory, near Wakefield, West Yorkshire, England (UK). Postcode: WF4 1QE

Whitby Whale Bones and Abbey

Whitby Goth Weekend and the words ‘NEED’ and ‘WANT’

Hello all, let’s start the weekend off with a few pictures I recently took at Whitby, North Yorkshire. It was Halloween weekend which means it was the famous Goth Festival and the town was full of Goths and Steampunk’s in all their spooky and splendid glory, some of them looked fantastic, others just plain scary but that was the idea, all where lovely people and all too willing to pose for us photographers of which there were many! A good […]

Social Media – Friend or Demon?

When you have the rug pulled from under you like many photographers and I just have after the crushing announcement that G+ is to close for good next year, you can be forgiven for thinking of all social media platforms as a bit of a demon, I certainly did and I was ready to leave the lot for good a few weeks ago. How dare Google delete all those friendships forged over the years and all the days of your […]

Crystal Ball Photography

Crystal Ball Photography – my latest toy and project

Crystal Ball Photography or Glass Orb Photography is certainly nothing new and has been done to good and bad effect by many photographers before. That said it’s something I have never done before and a challenge I am really looking forward to experimenting with in all weathers and locations. Here is an affiliate link to the crystal ball that I have purchased https://amzn.to/2wEiNZ5 if you use the link it costs you no more but I get a few pennies to […]

Manfrotto 322RC2 Review

Manfrotto 322RC2 heavy duty grip ball head review

In my book, the less fiddling with kit I do while on location shooting images, the better. I have owned and tried a few different tripod heads now which all did the job well but were fiddly and a little time consuming when it came to composing the shot, especially on those occasions when light and the scene is changing by the second and a fast recompose is needed, enter the Manfrotto 322RC2. I had watched videos on YouTube demonstrating […]

Seascape photography tips – Golden Hour

Seascape Photography From a very early age, the beach and sea have both fascinated and excited me. Thinking back I remember not being able to sleep for many hours before going on a family holiday or day out to the coast, I was far too excited. Then there is the first glimpse of the sea from the car window as you approach the coast, magic and very exciting, I am sure this will sound true with many reading this who […]

Scarborough North Yorkshire Photography

After a long wet, dark and cold winter here in Yorkshire, UK, how nice it was to watch and photograph the sunrise on a mild Spring morning on and around the beach at Scarborough, England. I was out before blue hour from where the family and I were staying for the weekend, https://escape2thesands.com the harbour and beach were just a 5 minute ride away and best of all, the parking spaces near the harbour were empty and parking was free […]

Ribblehead Viaduct Photography Tim Hill

My image on an album cover by Nickolay Fedorenko

It’s always great to see my images put to good use but when Nickolay Fedorenko from Russia first contacted me, kindly asking if he could use one of my photographs of a train going over Ribblehead viaduct for the cover of the current album he was working on, I was a little surprised I must say! Nickolay speaks excellent English and kept in touch throughout making the album. World in Your Hands by Nickolay Fedorenko I would like to congratulate […]
