Sale Notification

SORRY – This ETSY store is currently closed, digital downloads are now available from EyeEM and Pond5

I’ve decided that rather than just display images on this site that I’ll sell digital downloads of some of my favourites so that people can print off a copy if they want to or use it as a desktop background etc.  This is now being undertaken through Etsy.

If anyone would like to check out my new shop then please visit at:

To start the ball rolling I’m offering 20% discounts for new buyers from now till Christmas and 20% off for repeat orders. The code to be declared at checkout for new buyers is jwphotos001

There are only a limited number of images on the Etsy site though more will be gradually added, if there is a particular image of mine that anyone would like to see sold on Etsy then please let me know and I’ll upload it.

I’m fully open to comments and suggestions for this new shop, let me know what you think and if you like what you see then please tell your friends.



If you are into the creative aspects of photography then no doubt you have a use for filters that come with photo editing tools. I find that these filters are often very useful in creating that very different approach to an image be that creating an abstract or enhancing an original image as demonstrated in earlier posts on this site.

Craquelure filter applied

There are of course many filters offered for sale on the web but there are many that are free as well. I’ve attached two flower images that started off as straightforward record shots of flowers in a local park.

Mashberry Filter applied

To each of them I’ve applied a filter that was offered free on the web and as can be seen the end result is very different.





For those with an interest Image 1 is a filter called Craquelure and Image 2 is named Mashberry and both are available at . Have fun…
