A question I am often asked is "Which is your most popular photograph?" This is quite difficult to answer as it isn't really that easy to narrow down to one image. I have over 800 prints for sale on this site and people tend to gravitate to a group of photographs that might usually have some sort of significance to them or their loved ones. New York for example is a place where many people visit and come back wanting to capture the spirit of their time together. Consequently, pictures around Central Park and famous landmarks, such as the statue of liberty or The Chrysler Building, are popular choices.

In Paris, photographs from the Notre Dame, The Champs Elysees, Sacre Coeur and the Arc De Triomphe are favourites but are by no means the only popular photos from the French capital. Sometimes, people are after something that little bit different. The shot that might not be immediately conspicuous but a shot that captures the essence of Paris, nevertheless.

In London, the most popular images I sell seem to revolve around the Lloyd's Building. I took a series of photographs of this location in 2007 and usually these form the basis of a order for London photographs. If people step a little further afield, some of my work from Oxford and Cambridge tries to capture the majesty and archaic beauty of the universities.

If romance is what you are after, Venice is probably for you. Built on a lagoon (and quite possibly sinking into the lagoon) there can be no other city quite like it on earth. Favourite photos from this city usually revolve around St Mark's Basilica and Square, the Doge's Palace or The Bridge of Sighs but again some customers are looking for something else. Something related to Venice that doesn't scream Venice.

For me, my favourites would be as follows. Number one:- Raffles Hotel Singapore. This portrait shot was taken in 2006. The charm of this hotel is what draws me to it and the photograph, finished in a sepia tone, has I feel a timeless quality that makes it intriguing. My second choice would be the shot in the New York gallery of Poet's Walk, near Bethesda, Central Park. I had to use a tripod for this shot as the day was drawing to a close. Central Park is such an antidote to the vast metropolis of New York city. My third favourite photograph would then be the landscape oriented shot of the Giant's Causeway. This took 3 hours to drive to but was well worth it. The photograph was taken in 2004.
