I am a Freelance professional photographer living on the East Coast of Lincolnshire England. For many years I worked as a mechanical site engineer until I had to finish work in September 2010 for personal reasons. I photograph events and carry out some work for the local press. I am just in the process of producing a calendar for the 8th year featuring pictures of Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea taken throughout the 4 seasons. This little website is a means of showcasing some of my work and retailing it to anyone that likes having nice pictures to look at on the walls of their home. All pictures are on good quality paper using archive quality inks with a 100 year plus non fade guarantee. (As if anyone really cares after about 50 years)My prices as listed elsewhere are very reasonable but unfortunately delivery is not included unless you live quite close by. Feel free to ask for quotations regarding any pictures you have if you want them enlarging or repairing.
I also carry out photographic assignments of various types for people. These have included portraits, passport photos and pets in the past as well as commercial commisions.
December 5th 2013
On the week preceding December the 5th we had warning of an impending "Storm Surge" all the way down the east coast as far as west Norfolk. What we actually experienced was a once in a lifetime event that few will forget. When walking with my dog on the beach about 3 hours prior to the high tide I noticed that the sea was then at least as high or higher that a normal high tide. Here are some pictures taken during the full high tide and also the Friday morning aftermath. The power of the waves and the sound are things very difficult to describe and pictures don't really give you an idea of how awsome the sight is.
The morning after the night before. Five days on and the Prom is clear and several diggers and sweepers have lamost cleared the beach too. All we need now is to get some steps from the Seaview car park due to these being about 15 feet shorter than they were prior to the high tide. A large section of dunes also went missing and they are back to where they were about 20 years ago with most of the fencing now on the Prom along with an awful lot of scrub that had been building up over the years and acting as a natural tidal barrier.
THE ENVIRONMENT AGENCY TAKING 6-8 WEEKS TO DO WHAT THE SEA DID IN 1-1/2 HOURS!
Ater the storm surge the sand dunes needed building up to replace the ten metres of sand that were washed southwards Several 30 tonne dumper trucks and several excavators were used to move the sand back to the north beach. Unfortunately the dredger boats were unable to get close enough at this end to bring any in. No idea of the cost but I am sure the taxman will collect enough to cover the cost!!

July 2013. Note the guy riding past on his bike, wet through and riding like a madman.
Bobby and his paddling partner coming ashore after a 15 mile kayak to raise funds to help a young lad get well and walk properly again.
Not sure how much was raised but several plucky people also carried out a sponsored walk from Skegness along the beach and arrived pretty much worn out but soon revived with one of Bobbys breakfasts.
