In the News

I don't usually highlight which images have been licensed to newspapers as the delay between publication and notification can be considerable, however as I mentioned in my previous post when the storms hit the North East of England I headed up to High Force to try a capture a few images and shoot some video.  I knew I had some good footage and perhaps a few newsworthy images and uploaded three of them to the live news feed.  While up at High Force we had no idea of the drama being played out further north and that homes schools and businesses were being inundated by floodwater.  Seeing the destruction later I had assumed that the human story would have eclipsed my images as far as news goes, however this one was picked up by the Telegraph who used it as a part of their coverage of the story. 


  1. Great picture. Nice to see they gave you a byline. I must venture up there when it's in flood. It's spectacular enough when it's running normally, but it must be really impressive when it's a raging torrent.

    1. The only time I seem to get a byline nowadays is when I either sell direct, or when I make a sale via an agent through the live news channel. Usually they only provide the agency/library name. I could have a good old moan about that but won't :-)

      It is certainly worth venturing up Alen, although as you know it rises and falls very quickly and getting the timing right can be a bit tricky. Still it is a great excuse to have a walk up from Bowlees, or to do a circular via Holwick.
