Behind the Job – Tour de France

So something new that I’m going to try and do here on ‘Room 2850‘ is to pick some of the stories I’ve covered and then explain a little bit about the back story of how I came to get the shot or shots. Maybe throw in a few technical details here and there on cameraContinue reading “Behind the Job – Tour de France”

But first….. those of you who know me know that I NEVER name the spots I photograph in nor do I pass onContinue reading “It’s grim up North”

The fire rages on

A huge fire started in a tyre recycling plant in Sherburn in Elmet yesterday. I headed down there late Thursday night for Getty Images to try and get some pictures through the night and again through the following day. Thousands of old tyres were, and still are, burning at the recycling plant in North Yorkshire sendingContinue reading “The fire rages on”
