The Isle Of Wight Calendar For 2014

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

After the success of the sell out 2011 calendar I’ve been meaning to do another one ever since ! It’s taken me three years to compile another set of 12 island images but I think it’s been worth the wait. In association with my sponsor Wight Locations and Style of Wight magazine the new calendar has photographs from all over the island including Alverstone, The Needles, Seaview along with depictions of the Brambles Cricket Match and the Scooter Rally in Ryde. The calendar will be available from selected shops on the island and through the Island Images website.

The Westward Cup 2012 And Isle Of Wight Film Festival 2013

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Having been involved with Yacht Mariquita for the past four / five years I was commissioned by theĀ  skipper Jim Thom to make a short documentary film to mark her centenary. Along with my colleague Hamish Roots we headed off to Cowes to film Mariquita competing in the Westward Cup against her great rivals Elenora and Mariette. It was a great week and Cowes served up some dramatic conditions especially on the final day when I was given the opportunity to film on board. The documentary film is now finished and we are planning to show it at a special screening at the Isle of Wight Film Festival which is being held in Ventnor this August.
