IT'S A SELL OUT!
After just over a month on sale and great support from local businesses in helping with promotion, I have now sold all 25 limited edition prints and even the 'Artists Proof' as well.
Today I was able to present a cheque for £650 to Lesley Bossine, the Centre Manager of the Landmark Arts Centre. Despite a feeling of achievement, this is in fact a drop in the ocean towards the sum required to keep our favourite local Arts Centre open.
If you did not have an opportunity to buy a limited edition print, you can still donate to the Landmark Arts Centre by visiting their fund raising page HERE.
Thank you to Colin Durnford for acting as official photographer for the day.

My #Landmark25Challenge for the Landmark Arts Centre is complete!
It’s been a pleasure to get back out with the camera to photograph around Teddington. I have created a limited edition of just 25 prints each incorporating 25 photos of the town as a 40cm square print in a 50cm mount. Each one is individually signed & numbered and includes a guide of what and where each of the locations are!
The print is 40cms (16” square) and set in a mount of 50cms (20” square) so it should be easy to find a frame the right size in local shops and online. The image is printed on Fuji Crystal Archive Professional lustre paper and is mounted with a ‘snow white’ textured mount board with a neutral ph non-acidic white core which should stay white for the lifetime of the mount.
The prints are £100 each with 25% going direct to the Landmark Arts Centre in support of their emergency fund-raising appeal to save the centre, which faces permanent closure due to the Covid19 outbreak.
Please contact me HERE to order one of only 25 prints - free delivery to local areas (safe social distancing will be observed).
For a number of years I have been asked if I could produce a calendar with photographs of local landmarks. This year I can finally say yes!
I have found a UK based printer who can print both cost effectively and with a high quality finish to the standard I want. I canvassed friends, family and clients for feedback on their preferred monthly format and the majority decision was for 'day boxes' allowing for the maximum writing space.
Please drop me a message HERE on my contact page if you would like to buy a calendar at only £10.99 each. It is £1.50 for first class postage (it arrives safely packaged in a hard backed envelope) or I can deliver for free to local addresses within the London Borough of Richmond.
Alternatively you can order directly from my Etsy shop HERE - Christmas cards can also be purchased from my shop.

My compete range of 18 Christmas cards featuring places across the London Borough of Richmond and neighbouring Boroughs and also wildlife are now on sale in local shops and direct from my website. I have three new designs for 2018.

It's never too early to plan for Christmas!
It may be 30 degrees outside, we may have had no rain for nearly 2-months but it's time for me to think about making up this years Christmas cards for supply to shops and outlets in September/October!
Thanks to the snow in late February this year, I have been able to add another 3 designs to my current range. The classic and locally loved red telephone boxes on Richmond Green, the Twickenham 'Naked Ladies' (complete with icicles!) and the view along the Thames tow path at Twickenham.
All will be available to purchase soon here on my website or in local shops - just drop me an email if you are interested...HERE
Congratulations to Rebecca (Becky) Wade, an elite marathon runner from the U.S.A. who came 11th overall in the womens' race in yesterdays London Marathon with a very respectable time of 2:30:41... made all the more exciting as she purchased a stack of my Teddington postcards to send to friends and family back in the U.S. from The Card Collection in Teddington High Street. The Card Collection are the only retail outlet currently stocking all of my postcards but you can find all designs HERE on my website to purchase as well (just the montages are available as postcards).
What a great Private View this evening at Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington! The exhibition looks one of the best we've had in recent years and it's open for the next week and a half to visitors.
I've got eleven mounted images taken in Lapland in Finland earlier this year (I'm not sure if I'm looking smug or slightly inebriated!). I was really pleased to sell one of my images
on the opening night as well.
