Today is the last day to see and enjoy the Snowflake Trail in Liverpool...

It's not just incredibly gorgeous artistic pieces of snowflake glory... it's snowflake multimedia heaven too! It's that good that I took my 4 year old round - after downloading the iphone app - and making it all come to life!

If you get the chance - don't miss the opportunity to see this fantastic art installment in Liverpool City Centre. Here's some marketing photos I nabbed for Open Culture - the event organisers...

Some Drone Aerial video footage - a short clip of the incredible Shipwreck Bay - Zakynthos, Greece.

Am still reveling in the memory of this incredible location. Here's a quick video I pieced together with some of the aerial footage compiled on the trip. Enjoy!

The Albert Dock Liverpool - some Drone Aerial photos from the air...

This is an aerial photo of Albert Dock. Shot with a DJI Phantom 4 Drone. 27th October 2016. In the early 80's Margaret Thatcher wanted to tear it down as part of a "managed decline" operative for the city of Liverpool. Kinda glad she didn't get her way! These incredible buildings still stand majestically on the Mersey River. The afternoon light hitting them perfectly. Get on down and check them out if you're popping into Liverpool for a visit...

Expressions of a Princess... the day HRH Princess Anne visited the city of Liverpool

Another magical day of photography in Liverpool - with the christening of the new Atlantic Container Line vessel - Atlantic Sea. HRH Princess Anne made a special trip up for the event - and I had the pleasure of photographing her visit. I've photographed her on 3 other occasions, which in comparison were rather hurried affairs. This day there was plenty of time for her to relax and enjoy the wonderful hospitality that Liverpool brings! As you can see from her many different expressions - she had a fantastic day!

So I packed the Drone in my suitcase and travelled from Liverpool to Zakynthos for some aerial photography...

Travelling across Europe with a Drone sounds a little cumbersome and complicated - but it really is pretty straightforward. Grab yourself a small padded backpack off Amazon for around £40... then pack it inside your hardshell suitcase and forget about it till you arrive on a beautiful Greek Island. Once there get up nice and early and drive across the Greek countryside to a very very special place. Navagio Beach - or Shipwreck Bay as it's colloquially known. All the more special first thing in the morning before all the tourists hit it. This place is something else. Dramatic white chalky cliffs descend dramatically into the Aegean Sea. A boat that was once used to transport contraband washed up on the beach years ago. Culminating in a stunning spectacle. One of the most photogenic spots on the planet.

Here's a quick photo taken from the Drone to give you an idea.

Ben Fogle tells his incredible tales in the Anglican Cathedral Liverpool

One of my favourite venues on the planet - the Liverpool Cathedral. I first spotted Ben Fogle early in the evening looking a little lost. It was the first time he'd been in the cathedral and was in awe of the sheer size of it. He wandered over in the near darkness and asked me if I knew where the client was. So we wandered through the incredible structure to the ornate Lady Chapel where guests were arriving. Lovely guy, totally chilled and just how I expected him to be. It never ceases to amaze me just how many British people have never heard of, let alone set foot in, the Liverpool Cathedral. Here's a few photos from the evening.
