Another top quality SandAce Championship sorted....
26th June 2017

The Condor Ferries International SandAce ACU British Championships took place at Vazon Bay, Guernsey on 24 June 2017.

For 2017 the event had been awarded a new International status which is a fitting reward to the Guernsey Motor Cycle & Car Club and all the officials who put in so much work during the year to make it happen.

There is a particular pressure on the team of officials when their race track will disappear under the ocean as the tide comes in! The whole operation is now very slick with all the essential elements in place. The only thing that the team couldn't control was the weather which lacked the sun that would have really completed a perfect event.

Luckily the rain didn't appear until the finals and by that time the large crowd were captivated by the high standard of racing and most of them stayed on to see the climax of the 2017 championships.

Once again the Guernsey Motor Cycle & Car Club organized a fantastic event that ran smoothly and efficiently.

Well done to all those who made it happen... see you again next year!

A new hangover cure has been found.....
25th June 2017

I suppose I should thank the MTB section of the Guernsey Velo Club for getting me out of my sleeping bag this morning... it turned out that fresh air was probably a good antidote to my Chaos Festival hangover ;-)

It was sheer willpower that got me motivated together with the promise that I should be able to capture some good pics at the new custom built jump.

So as I headed off from the festival carpark at Pleinmont in my Tallpictures van/Motorhome my ears were still ringing from the two previous nights of music and my head was still a bit 'fuzzy'!

However there's nothing better to distract a sports photographer from his pain than a bit of dramatic action... and that's exactly what was on offer. The new jump was indeed a great place to get impressive action pics.

I've added a new gallery of the mornings racing.

When that job was done I headed back to the Chaos Music and Bike Festival for one last night of fun.

Those pics will follow shortly together with all the action from the Condor Ferries International SandAce ACU British Championships held at Vazon Bay on Saturday. You can see it's been another hectic weekend :-)

Only Mad Dogs & Guernseymen....
19th June 2017

Maybe this is an incorrect quote by I think it probably sums up my weekend quite well...

'Only Mad Dogs & Guernseymen go out in the midday sun'

That's exactly where you would have found me for the two scorching weekend days. Saturday was spent photographing the Reservoir Speed Event. Then Sunday there was the Powerboat racing to photograph.

Both events required standing under the relentless sun... I'm looking for a bit of sympathy here but I doubt I'm going to get any :-)

Actually I'm not complaining about having to stand outside in the heat. In fact far from it, as today I've been mostly stuck in the office completing the edit and paperwork that plays too big a part in a professional photographers life :-(

It was worth the effort though as I'm now nearing the completion of that work. This is a sure sign that the weather will break - just as I want to get out in the garden!

My main updates today have been to add three new galleries featuring the Guernsey Kart & Motor Club Reservoir Speed Event, Cars, Bikes and Karts.

What a scorcher....
18th June 2017

The weekend has been a proper scorcher.... almost too hot to work!

But that's OK for me as I don't count what I do as work. It's usually just fun!

And there has been plenty of fun, sun, sea, motorsport, music... and more sun for me over the weekend.

June is shaping up to be the normal non-stop month for me as the diary is pretty full :-)

So there's no time to be too chatty in this Blog so I'll get straight to the point. I've just added a new Gallery of pictures featuring one of the weekend's assignments - and it ticked the fun, sun, sea and motorsport boxes. That's nearly the full set!

You can view a new gallery of Powerboat Racing pics by following the link.

This features Race 4 of the Guernsey Powerboat Association's Stanley Gibbons sponsored Race Series over the North Beach Outer course.

Sun, sea and sand between my toes....
11th June 2017

Yesterday I spent the afternoon on the beach... and it felt just like summer!

I was tempted to go rock-pooling but as I was on Vazon bay there was a shortage of pools... but lots of SAND.

That was just right for what I was photographing. SAND racing :-)

The beach was actually unusually firm, dry and flat for Round 5 of the Guernsey Motor Cycle & Car Club Championship. When those conditions were combined with a day that actually felt like summer we were sure to have an enjoyable afternoon.

Let's hope that we can repeat the very same sunny weather for the British Sand Ace Championships at the end of the month. I've got my finger's and lenses crossed to make sure!

Earlier in the day, my mornings photoshoot had re-enforced why it felt like a summer's day as I'd been assigned to cover a cricket match at the College Field. How very 'British summertime', eh!

The only thing missing was a cool gin and tonic. But later, I made do with a few pints of Real Ale... sorted!

Cricket pics will follow.

The Sand Racing pics are now online here:

Jersey racers have caught the Autocross bug....
05th June 2017

The Guernsey Autocross Club's 2017 Fun Meeting on Chouet Beach was well supported by a sizable team of drivers from Jersey.

The visitors really seem to have caught the Banger racing bug as they even arrived with their own cars!

Needless to say none of them were worth taking home after the racing and they were removed from the beach on the back of a skip lorry ;-)

The extra Jersey cars meant that the entry was as big as I can remember and the action really was none-stop! Spectators enjoyed a full program of racing... and the viewing, as always, was FREE!

Banger racing lived up to its reputation as one of the cheapest forms of Motorsport - and certainly the best fun per pound!

I've added a gallery of Autocross Fun Meeting pics... and it's as big as the field of cars!

Pistols and rifles... they don't have to be used in anger
05th June 2017

After seeing the weekends news reports about the horrific terrorist activity in London I reflected on how lucky we are to live on our small safe island.

Guernseymen and women know that our Channel Islands offer us a special place to live, away from the extremes of the modern world. It is very rare that any major incident comes close to our sandy shores.

We enjoy a calm, peaceful lifestyle and we are spoilt by the choice of activities and sports easily available to keep our leisure lives busy. Also, we can easily (and no, I'm not trying to start a debate about Aurigny and Condor travel difficulties) gain access to the wider world as and when we choose and we are assured that Guernsey will remain a 'safe haven' whenever we return.

The observation that 'triggered' (pun intended) my reflection was the realization that firearms have featured both in the national and local news and also in my own weekend’s photographic work.

Firstly there was the use of firearms in London to end the violent act of terrorism. It is sad to say that this use of weapons in modern society has become a necessary reality and we have to be grateful that those charged with the task of keeping us safe are brave, highly trained and capable.

There was also a display of weapons on the streets of Guernsey. A few armed police officers were patrolling St Peter Port to reassure us that our own safety is a priority.

However on Sunday there was a second display of weaponry in St Peter Port... but this time they were historic and part of the Royal Guernsey Light Infantry Commemoration Parade. It is one hundred years since over one thousand Guernseymen were sent to fight in France. More than 300 didn't return. This was a timely reminder of the horrible use of weaponry in warfare and it was an honour to remember those who paid such a high price protecting us all.

But it isn't always the case that firearms are used in anger. This was proven to me as two of my weekend’s assignments involved the use of firearms... but this time they were used for sport.

On Saturday I photographed the XMA Junior Schools Individual Athletics Championships at Footes Lane where a starting pistol played an important role in the track events.

I then covered the Guernsey Rifle Club's weekend competition at the Fort Le Marchant range against a visiting team from the National Rifle Association. I have photographed rifle shooting before and it never fails to strike me how powerful and loud a high velocity rifle is when you are standing just feet away from the competitors. However I also appreciate that I'm completely safe in the controlled environment.

So my weekend has shown how contrasting places and experiences can be. For a few unlucky people in London life will never be the same again because of the use of knives and firearms. In Guernsey we simply went about our normal lives and I’m thankful that my only contact with a weapon was entirely safe… and long may that continue.

I’ve added a couple of picture galleries that feature the NRA weekend and the Junior Athletics:

17 MILLION VIEWS... and counting
01st June 2017

As this website smashes through 17 MILLION VIEWS I maintain the effort to keep the updates coming.

CLICK HERE TO READ MY 17 MILLION VIEWS BLOG

The variety of work that makes up an average week of photography keeps everything interesting for me... and I'm pleased to say a few of you too, judging by the amount of picture views made every day on this website :-)

As an example of some of the variety of photoshoots there have been three new galleries added today. They feature Round three of the GK&MC Summer Kart Championship.

Then there are pics of Jo Reeve's fortieth birthday gig at the Golden Lion which saw Gay Army make a rare live appearance.

There's also a gallery of cricket pics that I captured during the Loveridge Cup half-time at KGV. See the previous Blog for those pics.

All this still doesn't mean that I'm up to date with the weeks work yet... but I'm definitely three steps closer!

...... and a few more Bank Holiday weekend updates
31st May 2017

This is just a quickie to keep you up-to-date with another couple of new galleries featuring some of the Bank Holiday weekend action.

My previous Blog offers a bit more information regarding the weekends work.

The latest two updates feature the Loveridge Cup U18's Final football game a KGV - Sylvans vs Rangers.

Then there's another update featuring the fourth round of the Guernsey Motor Cycle & Car Club 2017 Sandracing Championship at Vazon Bay.

I've still got a load of updates to make... keep tuned into this Blog page for more details....

It's a Bank Holiday... that means rain
30th May 2017

There's a theme here.

We start off with all the anticipation ahead of a busy Bank Holiday weekend.

It's always going to be none-stop action as many sporting and music events seem to get organized to take advantage of an extra day of leisure... if you're not a photographer that is!

Even though the holiday weekend means an overload of work for me I still look forward to them.

The bit that isn't so appealing is that by some freak of nature the holiday weekend seems to get more than its fair share of bad weather and rain!

So I guess I should have known that the waterproof kit would get an outing at least once... and it did. In fact the rain was so torrential on Sunday that the Powerboat racing had to be stopped because the visibility was so bad the safety crews couldn't see the racers!

In the end there was plenty other action to fill three full days so I was happy. It is only now that the editing has to be completed that I'm less enthused.

But I've been covering Bank Holidays for long enough to know the score and the only way to get through to the end is to stick at it. The end will come into view in a couple of days.

It is more straight forward for you. All you need to do is pop along here to this News page every now and then and I'll post a link to my new pics for you to view at your leisure. That's what Bank Holidays are all about :-)

So far the Guernsey Kart & Motor Club's Hillclimb pics are online. View them here:

FOUR MILLION ANNUAL VIEWS... how many each minute?
27th May 2017

I’m chuffed to say that this website continues to gain a following. My thanks and a high five (a hug if you’re a lady) to anyone who pops along here for an occasional browse through the picture galleries.

The time I spend taking pics is mostly exciting and enjoyable…. and it definitely beats having a ‘proper job’!

Now whilst the pleasure I get from working full-time as a photographer should be enough to keep me happy there is an additional side to making me smile – that is this website and the amount of interest shown in my work.

The total number of picture viewings of the galleries has just passed another MILLION MILESTONE. The total now exceeds 17 MILLION VIEWS!

It seems that the annual average has now settled at FOUR MILLION VIEWS A YEAR!

This got me interested in calculating what that number means on a daily, hourly and minute basis. The result is quite surprising!

So I started with the 4 MILLION annual views.

A simple division gives you 11,000 views a day – every day of the year!

I then looked at the Google Analysis which shows most viewings are between 7am and 1am…. that’s eighteen hours out of the twenty-four day.

So another division…. 11,000 views divided by the 18 hours gives you 600 views an hour every day of the year!

Next divide the hourly views by 60 minutes and you arrive at 10 views a minute.

Finally another quick calculation and you can work out that (on average throughout the year) a picture is viewed every six seconds. WOW!

So there we have it, my Maths teachers at the Grammar School always said that I would be surprised how useful ‘learning sums’ could be later in life. In this case it has helped tickle my ego and encourage me to keep taking the pics…. At least while the interest remains ;-)

Thanks again for all your support.

Dodging the showers for a BMW bike photoshoot.....
25th May 2017

It was a case of dodging the showers at a recent photoshoot I did for BMW, Jacksons Garage and the Guernsey Press.

The special event was an open day featuring a wide range of the latest BMW motorbikes which were on display and also available for test rides.

Brian Martel had been asked to test ride and report on the BMW R nineT Scrambler. I needed to capture pics to support his article.

Whilst I'm guessing that the damp conditions were what this bike is designed to cope with it was still a shame to get a new bike wet and splashed with spray.

After the shoot, this meant more work for both the photographer and garage technicians to get the bike looking at its best again.

My cleaning 'tool' was the Lightroom 'spot healer'. I didn't go for a complete touch-up as I quite liked the slightly 'grungy' look. I am sure, however, that my cleaning work was easier than the rags and polish required back in the garage!

I was suprised... then there was no suprise :-(
21st May 2017

It was a night of surprise and not!

Saturday saw the launch gig of the new Static Alice EP ‘Warrior’ at the Fermain Tavern… a bit more about that in a minute.

I’ll start by mentioning one of the supporting bands.

Somehow I had missed seeing this band before. Maybe because, as I get older and lack the youthful stamina, I sometimes miss the early support bands as I arrive a little late at gigs. A man of my age has to pace himself you know!!

Whatever the reason, this was the first time I’d seen a new (for me) young band called Track Not Found… and they impressed me. When you take a look at my pics you will see that the three guys in the line-up are girls! :-)

Don’t let this leave you with an impression on their music choices. This band is grungy and heavy. They already have a strong set of originals and have developed a tight and promising live performance. This was the surprise that I mentioned before. Track Not Found did more than enough to get me to their next gig early to make sure I see them again. You must keep an eye out for them too.

The other surprise of the night… but it wasn’t really… was that there were so few ‘punters’ out on Saturday to catch the launch gig of Static Alice’s new EP ‘Warrior’. Static Alice command a large following of fans in Guernsey. They always ‘produce the goods’ at gigs with their charismatic, high energy live performances of original songs. They really are one of the most memorable bands on the Guernsey scene at the moment.

So why didn’t their fan base turn out to support Static Alice in greater numbers on Saturday?

As I suggested earlier, this was a surprise… but not, if that makes any sense!

Regular gig-goers have seen it all before and I guess that nothing will ever change. However, at least (in one way) I hope things don’t change.

What I mean by that comment is this. I hope bands aren’t put off arranging gigs when their efforts go so unrewarded. I would hate to lose the chance to see live music played in Guernsey just because of the apathy shown by so many.

If you’re still interested, Static Alice didn’t let the lack of people affect them in the slightest. They are in the game (originally) because of their love of live music. They stepped up to the mic’s and didn’t lower the energy level until the last song. Well done guys.

Oh, and ‘Warrior’ is fantastic. Make sure you buy a download. We need to support our local talent… even if you can’t be bothered to attend gigs.

There is one more point that makes the lack of punters even harder to understand. The other supporting band was Honest Crooks who have a large fan base of their own – making things even stranger!!

Two days on the beach but no sunbathing for me....
15th May 2017

Whilst I'm sure many locals would have enjoyed two days leisure on Guernsey's beaches last weekend I was on the golden sands for work :-(

I'm not looking for any sympathy though. Far from it. I get to spend my 'work' time outside doing what I enjoy. I think I'm the lucky one here!

I also spent quite a bit of time walking around L'Ancresse golf course with my cameras slung around my neck trying to catch up with crucial moments of play in the Piccadilly Trophy and the Junior Hampshire Greenjackets Golf competitions. Again, what's so bad about doing that as my way to earn a crust (pay for the real ale)!

The beach work was capturing the action on the sands of Vazon Bay (Sand Racing) and the Autocross Banger racing on Chouet beach.

I've now added a couple of Galleries featuring the Motorsport action:

Piccadilly Trophy & Brymay Cup golf pics...
13th May 2017

I made a short stop off at L'Ancresse golf course this morning to grab a few pics of the Piccadilly Trophy & Brymay Cup competition.

Golf is not my usual choice of sports action photography. There's not enough noise, speed.... or indeed action!

But it was a pleasant day to walk around L'Ancresse Common and I was actually assigned to take the pics - so I didn't have much choice!

Anyway, the short stop was made on my way to Vazon Bay for the Sand Racing so I still found time for some real action photography :-)

UPDATE: After shooting the Piccadilly Trophy on Saturday I returned to the links on Sunday to photograph the Junior Hampshire Greenjackets competition which was played between the Royal Guernsey Juniors and La Moye Juniors. A few pics of that competition are also online.

National Holiday? What National Holiday?
10th May 2017

May the 9th is Guernsey's National Holiday... but I have to ask 'What National Holiday?'

Liberation Day is a day that most locals enjoy chilling out on. There are many events taking place if you need entertainment. Or you can take the chance to visit friends and family for a couple of beers.

However for a working photographer it is far from a leisurely day.

This year my first assignment on Liberation Day day was to photograph the 50th time that the Guernsey Velo Club had run their Liberation Day Road Race over the L'Eree course. There was a good size entry when you consider other events that were taking place.

After that 6.30 am start my working day didn't finish until 18 HOURS LATER!!!

Once I'd captured a few action pics of the Road Race it was back to my office to sort, edit, caption and submit the pics for publication.

Next on the list was the Guernsey Athletics running race from the Peninsular into St Peter Port. I captured the start then followed the runners around the coast until (after struggling to find a parking space) I was at the finish line just as the winners crossed. Then back to the office for another edit.

Now it was time to photograph the historic motor cavalcade along the St Peter Port seafront. This always promises lots of colour and flag waving. It produced the goods :-)

It was now time for a bit a music... and a deserved beer... up at the Vale Earth Fair stage placed in the front garden of the Last Post Pub in St Andrew. To be honest with you, I could easily have called it a day then and there as there was a lovely chilled-out vibe among the crowd of locals sitting in the closed main road.

But no, there was more on my list. So back into St Peter Port I headed to photograph some of the bands appearing on the Lib Rock stage on the Albert Pier... only stopping to take a few pics of the fireworks.

So like I've already said, Liberation Day is far from a 'chilled day off' when you're a working 'tog. But it was still great fun. I hope you enjoyed yours.

I Step into The Lion's Den.....
07th May 2017

On Saturday I took the steps up to The Lion's Den.

This new venue on the Guernsey live music scene looks as if it has plenty to offer.

Just in case you haven't discovered it yet, you just have to head into St Peter Port... next you find Market Square. You'll be getting near. Listen out for the sound of music emanating from the upstairs room above the Golden Lion Pub and you will have found The Lion's Den.

Over the years I've enjoyed many gigs downstairs at the Golden Lion but I'm sure that the new Lion's Den Bar will prove even more popular.

My first visit offered the chance to see Chas Cole fronting a band instead of hiding in the shadows behind the mixing desk. His band called BlackTopTales received a great response. Keep an eye open for their next gig.

Headliners were Blue Mountains now expanded by a couple of friends and offering greater depth to their sound. This band is heading into my top ten of local bands.

I'm recommending The Lion's Den to you if you like your music live... of course you do!

I've added a few new pics to my Music Gallery featuring BlackTopTales and Blue Mountains:

Sometimes a picture doesn't tell the whole story...
04th May 2017

The headline to this Blog is hard to say for a photographer!

Especially one of my era who grew up with rolls of film that offered little scope for any manipulation.

Another thing that sets me up as an 'old generation' 'tog is that I really don't 'get' videoing at all. I know that all my recently purchased cameras have a setting and buttons to start a video recording but I've never explored what they can do.

You'll now understand that I'm proper 'old school'. Maybe this means I'm missing out on all that fun... the endless editing, the massive files.... and just how do you sell the finished video after all that effort when, if you put it online, it is essentially given away?

Of course all of the previous comment could be complete rubbish... I did say that I have no idea about video!

However, even I can see that sometimes the 'good old fashioned' photograph cannot explain what is happening as well as a moving picture could do.

Perhaps the picture at the top of this Blog is an example. In this 'frozen' form you could be forgiven for thinking that it was captured moments before a terrible accident when the Marshall is run over by the Sand Racing car.

But you'd be wrong. I'm sure that any racers are able to interpret the picture correctly. It is clear from the angle the car is leaning into the corner and the spray being thrown up that the driver is making a huge controlled slide. The Marshall in the picture is also an experienced beach racer so he clearly felt comfortable so close to the action.

Now, having explained all of that, I reluctantly have to concede that a video of the same action wouldn't have needed any explanation at all!

But is that what we want when looking at dramatic moments of action?

When a photographer is lucky to catch a special moment in a photograph there remains something for the viewer of that picture to interpret in what they see before them. So this still leaves me thinking that a carefully timed and captured 'still' picture is the finest form of recording action sport. I welcome your own comments on this subject.

You can see from my comment that this 'stills photographer' is not likely to be pressing his 'Record' button anytime soon!

Oh no, not more rain.....
02nd May 2017

The official drought in Guernsey was ended over the Bank Holiday weekend.

Some of you might say good. Others will disagree.

However, thankfully, we are not yet able to control the weather - although I'm sure Donald Trump would enjoy wealding that amount of power!

In the end, for us mere mortals, we have to accept what we are given and just get on with things.

For me 'things' on a Bank Holiday usually means some sort of Motorsport event to photograph. So on Monday I found myself standing in the drought breaking rain on Le Val des Terres hill capturing some spectacular Hillclimb action through foggy lenses and rain splattered spectacles trying to tell myself this was fun!

Thankfully the misery of rain running down my back is soon forgotten whilst completing the edit of my pics. Once again it was worth the discomfort as the wet track produced some dramaatic shots.

I've now uploaded a gallery featuring some of my pics. Enjoy taking a look from the comfort of your screen.
