La Rosiere

We love ski holidays and try to do one each year. Last April we enjoyed a family ski holiday with our two boys aged 6 and 8 in La Rosiere in France which was fantastic. It was great to ski somewhere much closer to home (Cornwall, UK) for a change as we usually head out to Canada. La Rosiere is…

The Dordogne region of France is a place I’ve wanted to explore for a while now and finally got the chance in May with a wedding I photographed in the Dordogne at Domaine de La Léotardie.

After a 4 hour flight from London, we step off the plane at Paphos airport and the heat hit us. It aways amazes me the difference in climate 2000 miles south can make. Shame we can’t move the UK next to Cyprus. You can see why so many expats come here. We hired a car from the airport as we…

New York City Break

New York at Christmas is so magical. This city lived up to all the hype and more, from the very moment we took a yellow cab from JFK into Manhattan and for the 4 days we walked into this movie set of a city with Santa Claus as the producer and director. The Americans know how to put on a…

Rome has always been a city I’ve wanted to visit with nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display. I must admit, I wasn’t prepared for what my eyes were going to see and my mind try and comprehend. We wanted to see the ancient ruins like the Roman Forum and the Colosseum which showcase the…
