Juxtaposition always works well in a photograph, so for this fashion shoot I decided to use some scrapyard machinery as a background to the rather more beautiful model and clothing. Some strong lighting helps it along too, but it’s mainly about the pose where I have created shapes with the arms and legs to make a dynamic image. And it won me an award too, in the fashion category of the North West British Institute of Professional Photography Awards earlier this year, so all in all I'm quite pleased with it.

I travelled a large length of the Alaskan and Canadian coast along the Inside Passage. It sounds like one of the great journeys of the world and all very romantic, but in fact the scenery is basically forest and water for mile after mile. I was rewarded however with some stunning sunsets and this was one of the most spectacular.
