Old Tom

I don’t know the chaps name. He often turns up at 1940s re-enactments as a Greengrass-type character (from the TV series Heartbeat). I asked him for a photo and found an angle where the lighting brought out the texture in his face and where the backdrop wasn’t too intrusive. A little Photoshop work brought out more detail in his face.

Not Knowing where to Start

This was a bit of fun. The figure came from a North Norfolk Railway 1940s event and the kitchen scene behind came from a Bletchley Park display. I like the expression on the face and the title came quite naturally…

With Best Wishes from Fiona

Fiona was the singer at a Rushden Transport Museum 1940s Weekend. I asked to take a few shots and suggested a few poses. I created a sepia image and added some handwriting-like text to the bottom to create a kind of ‘forces sweetheart’ image that the troops might have carried around in their pockets.

Girls on Platform 2

This was taken on the North Norfolk Railway line at Weybourne. The girls were on the train and then alighted at Weybourne and crossed the line via the bridge. I asked if I could take their photo. I wanted the bridge and the lamp in the background with a moody sky and a little desaturation to add a slightly dated feel to the image.

Fast Freddie

I wanted to call this ‘Fast Freddie – the Bookies Favourite’. I don’t know why – he just seems the sort of chap to enjoy a quiet cig, a pint, and a little something on the horses. Rushden Transport Museum 1940s Weekend.


Cleorenia was at a 1940s Weekend at the Rushden Transport Museum. I asked if I might photograph her. I wanted the pink hat and lipstick against a soft pink background.


I originally called this The Gurney Man. It was taken as a mediaeval receation event at Ely and ‘Smithy’ was actually working there as a blacksmith hence the title.

Looking for a Way Out

This is an early studio shot where I was trying to create something a little different. Neil was often unshaven and I had this idea of peering out of a jail window. I then evolved it into him trying to look out of a print mount. It was a bit of fun to do.

Remembering Fallen Comrades

I liked the expression on the face of this old soldier. The backdrop is the American War Cemetry at Madingley.
