14th February 2014 - 3 comments
It's just 5 years since the start of my website but I reached a 1,000,000 hits today!
A samll personal goal and so I can now give up counting. The rise in visitor numbers viewing my photographs, not just from the UK but from all corners of the world, is incredible and re-affirms my belief in my photography & how I see things and put simply...I must be doing something right that's making a connection with all who view & buy the images.

Many thanks to everyone who has enjoyed viewing my galleries and for all the messages of support I receive. Hope you are enjoying the Wildlife Gallery as well!

Keep watching and tell your friends...spread the word!

New Wildlife Gallery Open!
15th August 2012 - 0 comments
I am pleased to announce Alex Meek has joined me in our new venture into photographing local & British Wildlife. Alex will be the main wildlife photographer with me adding shots as and when I can as I will still be concentrating on my Land & Seascape images.

Alex previously worked as a sports photographer giving him the ideal skills to help him track moving animals & birds in flight. The new gallery is still a work in progress as we have only just start shooting wildlife this year, but hopefully there will be even more great shots to add to what is already becoming a fantastic new Wildlife Gallery!

LRPS award!
15th November 2010 - 3 comments
I submitted a panel of 10 photographs that was up for assessment with the RPS at The Public, West Bromwich yesterday for a distinctions Licentateship.........and passed!

They commented I'd shown a very high degree of technical competency; bold & good use of colour; and what shone through was I obviously loved taking photographs!

As all the RPS council & President were there, which was very unusual, it was ratified the same day and I was presented with my certificate & badge by the President herself, which was really cool.

Many thanks to all those who have supported me over the past 2 years; it's been an amazing journey so far since I started in April 2008, and hopefully there is a lot more to come!



Now for my ARPS...and more exhibition work!

Ian Meek LRPS :)
