    Here is a shot I am proud of, actually taken back in 2001 this is a shot re-taken from a large print.
    At the time the HMS Victory in Portsmouth had just had illuminations installed but the public did not have access after 4pm so I applied and they agreed on the premise they were given rights to the image. It was a unique opportunity they even took me on board to show me other photographs in Nelson's cabin. This and similar images were subsequently used on calendars and postcards and are still the prominent postcard in the gift shop.

    One of them was set for the evening after my shoot, with Prince Phillip attending, it made my shoot even more special knowing how lucky I was. The HMS Warrior outside the site is also illuminated and ideally set for sunset shots.
