Wheal Betsy

Wheal Betsy

Back in June I finally got to visit Wheal Betsy. I’ve driven past it many times and this time finally decided to stop! It’s accessed via a small track that was a bit difficult to find and access from the main road, but once on it, you just follow it down to an area where …

Autumn is Here

So Autumn is here and the trees are changing. The Kids are back at school and the summer holidays are fading away. However, hopefully, you all have great memories of your holidays from the photos you have taken. But what have you done with them? Are they still on the camera’s memory stick, or on …

Through the summer months I have been taking photos at the vineyard to show the grapes growing on the vines and ripening.

Bottling at the Vineyard

As part of the year long project (or #LifeofaGrape) at Torview Wines Vineyard, I get to photograph all the activities that happen through the year at the vineyard.

Torview Vineyard in the Snow

I have been working on a project with a local vineyard, Torview. We are doing a year project to photograph the vineyard and follow a grape vine through the seasons. I’ve called it, ‘life of a grape’! Recently, as we are all too aware, we had some snow! I took the opportunity to head to …

In the Vineyard

In the Vineyard

Being a photographer means you get to photograph many different things, from people, to products and sometimes, products before they become the product! Yesterday I was out in a Vineyard in north Devon photographing vines, no grapes or even leaves, just the bare vines as the grapes start a journey from vine to bottle. It …
