New - I am pleased to announce that in April 2021 I will guide a micro cruise for Secret Atlas in Svalbard onboard the expedition ship M/V Togo. With just 12 guests onboard this will be a great opportunity to photograph the wildlife and landscapes of this beautiful Arctic archipelago. At over 100 feet long the MV Togo is ideal for those not so keen on sailing and with comfortable accommodation in twin and double cabins (mostly en-suite), large saloon and two Zodiacs for exploring and getting ashore. More information on Secret Atlas web site or contact me for more details.

Arctic Sailing Photo Adventure onboard the expedition yacht Qilak Arctic - Svalbard/Spitsbergen - May/June 2020 now on hold until 2021

Chart Art is a new way to display nautical charts in your home, business, restaurant or hotel. In fact anywhere where people enjoy looking at a chart of the coast. Chart Art is the idea of Rick Tomlinson, see Here you can select any chart from the UKHO range and have it printed as a box framed canvas ready to hang, we can also show tracking for races or cruises.

Any picture on the site, and many more, can be ordered as photographic prints.
