Welcome to my latest blog. Follow the trials and tribulations of one of the UK's top travel photographers ... a rapidly disappearing breed!!
Welcome back to Peter Barritt's official website. What a hassle to get back online!! My domain company, who shall remain nameless, apparently let my domain payment lapse and soon after a company bought up my peterbarrittphotography.com domain and wants £500+ for me to buy it back... So anyway I have changed to peterbarrittphotography.co.uk and should now be up and running.
I am busy trying to plough through my art photos that I took in the USA last year. They have the most incredible art collections in those US galleries. At 10 minutes per photo and a couple of thousand images to work through it may take all year!
Meanwhile I have been to various galleries in the UK including the Lady Lever Gallery in the Wirral to refresh my image bank. I am visiting English galleries with two friends who are also keen on art history. Last week we took in the Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool, what a fantastic collection of art. The Singh identical twins had a fantastic new exhibition there, absolutely stunning so I encourage you to get along while it is still showing.
Next trip is to Tuscany to photograph art from the early Renaissance period, mainly Pisa, Lucca and Siena but we will also do day trips to Assisi, Montepulciano and San Gimignano.
Just returned from a 4 day trip to London. Managed to get to both Hampton Court and Kew Gardens in fine weather, both places I've been planning to get to for some years. Both venues are very photographer friendly and offer some interesting viewpoints, worth visiting at different times of year. You can really feel the history in Hampton Court and the guides in each room really know their stuff. Great for kids.
London sparkled in the sunshine. I had a fun couple of hours doing some street photography around Trafalgar Square.
Hi and welcome to my updated website. First thing to say to any budding pro photographers out there is... Look at Zenfolio first!! I have been wasting time and money trying to work out wordpress and buying Themeforest templates etc. Forget it, unless you have experience of website design. The boffins speak in terms unintelligible to the jobbing photographer!
I stumbled on Zenfolio at Focus on Imaging in Birmingham 2012 and am very glad I did. Just what I wanted. Can be designed exactly as you want it with no understanding of website codes etc. Follow the simple instructions or watch videos about different topics. The company is based in California and is designed for pro photographers.
Please sign the guestbook and let me know what you think.
