1. Craft centre display

    Last Tuesday I put up my display of framed and mounted prints at Oad Street Food and Crafts near Sittingbourne. It’s a great setting with not too many featured artists so no-one’s work looks squeezed in amongst numerous others, an issue I was confronted with a while ago, elsewhere, and refused to show my work as a result. This has a much better feel, and with an adjoining restaurant/cafe, combining your visit with lunch, or simply coffee and cake would make for a very pleasant morning or afternoon.

    If you look to the right of this image you will notice a bio of myself. I felt this was important so that whoever was looking at the display knew something about the photographer, and more importantly, recognises that I am a local photograher and not someone from the other side of the country!

    Both mounted and framed prints are done so professionally using high-grade archival materials. I’m a photographer and I leave it to the experts to do this part of the job.
    All in all, I’m very happy with how it looks. Even if you’ve no intention whatsoever of purchasing, do pop along and let me know, on here, what you think. I hope that you enjoy it.

  2. Prints for Sale

    Kent, for whatever reason, has a dearth of galleries exhibiting and selling photography, but quite near to where I live, in Sittingbourne, Kent, lies a very nice craft centre set in the countryside called Oad Street Food and Crafts. 

    It’s been around for quite some time and a few years back I contacted them to see if they’d be interested in displaying/selling my work? I met with the manager of the craft department and they agreed. Upon reflection, and once I’d had time to digest the space, I declined. It was too muddled, too many items on show. Mine would be lost against the, ahem, clutter. But then I heard there was a change of ownership. The rather ‘twee’ tearoom had changed to a modern-looking restaurant, and the craft space was now occupied by just a small selection of local artists. I approached the owners, we had a meeting, and they agreed to display my work.
    This was a couple of months ago and ideally, there would be prints already hanging but due to my sheer workload of overseas tour commitments, it just wasn’t going to happen! We set a date (well, approximate), being the end of August. Images (both open and limited edition) have been selected and paper types and surfaces have been tested. So, I guess I know what I’ll be doing over the coming weeks!

    Prints will not be on display until the end of September
