the vacancy

mouse-over for before view. Welcome to our first blog of 2016, here’s to hoping you, our Dear reader, had a good Xmas and New Year? 🙂 Just going through my old external hard drives and came across this Eastbourne shoot I’ve dipped into many times and was even lucky enough to sell a few, the […]


St Pauls

  One of my biggest regrets about having lived in London for almost 20 years is the fact that I never really did the whole tourist thing, never visited the Tower of London, Westminster Cathedral, Madame Tussauds, Buckingham Palace, Tate Modern, and finally St Paul’s Cathedral – Too busy trying to make a living I guess? So this […]


City Shadows

  Just back after returning from a week in London where I attended a Getty Images get-together and was very privileged to meet several genuine Flypaper fans who were also attending!  Gleaning a bit of face to face feedback was priceless, and I also shared a few ideas we are working on here, much to their approval ! This […]


Windmills

  Winchelsea is a secluded and hard to get to English channel resort, nestled between its more famous and trendy neighbours of Hastings and Dungeness, so its still delightfully unspoiled. I only came across it after visiting the more cultured hilltop town of Rye, with its illustrious dead writers, the famous American Henry James and […]


Eyam Cows

Elam cows after

  I’m just back from a rewarding few weeks traveling and this is one of my captures from England’s beautiful Derbyshire Dales. This part of the world was my old doorstep, as a student teen I even had driving lessons around these parts as my driving instructor didn’t trust me in city traffic! He said, […]


Albion on Sea

From Jill and I, ‘Paul’ hope you all had Happy Holidays! 🙂 As its now midwinter, I thought it might be nice to revisit the summer, last August on a balmy evening on England’s Eastborne beach at sunset. One good thing about post-processing is its always possible to go back and redo images with your […]


Thom Cross – Standing on the Edge of the World

Yet another Flypaper product to share, this time an indie pop CD/EP! Several months ago I was contacted by Thom, originally a New Zealander, and now a London based musician who wanted to use one or two of my images, naturally I was delighted to help, and sorted him out with this and another image, […]


three girls running

Firstly, Jill and I would like to say a big Hi to the fans of the DPS site! It was a pleasure to answer questions for Mary Andrade’s feature on – ‘Tips for Texturing Photographs’ over on the DPS site. For all newcomers to to Flypaper, simply mouse-over the images for a fast before/after effect! […]


Chalk path into mist

Here’s another example of why we should always carry our camera on airport runs! I drove through thick fog banks from melting snow on the way to Gatwick airport in England over Christmas, being on the motorway it was impossible to stop, so I changed my route home to the minor country roads to capture […]


Off-Season becomes her

On my recent trip to England I drove to Eastbourne, which is about a 30 min drive east along the coast from Brighton, or as the locals call, ‘London-on-Sea’ as so many ex-Londoners have moved there over the past 20 years. Eastbourne is the poorer, more sedate neighbor, boasting superb unspoiled white cliffs and the […]


Brighton West Pier in Sea Mist

Back in Brighton I took loads of photographs on my late afternoon visit, walking from one pier to the ruined West Pier. I remembered seeing it before I left England in the 1990’s, It was being renovated into a huge restaurant come night club but had mysteriously caught fire. Today this is all that remains […]
