The Ultimate Guide to the Tees Valley

Welcome to the Tees Valley.

Probably most famous for its industrial background, the Tees Valley will almost certainly surprise you as a destination. The region straddles the River Tees and stretches from Darlington to the coast at Redcar & Cleveland but also incorporates Middlesbrough, Stockton-on-Tees and Hartlepool. From a heritage coastline to market towns, from a thriving foodie scene to nature reserves, the Tees Valley is that underrated destination that you have to experience.

The Monochrome Cities: Manchester

It’s taken well over 12 months but I’m finally able to share the next collection of images in my Monochrome Cities series. With the lifting of Covid-19 restrictions, I was able to visit Manchester for the first time in almost six years and I found it lent itself to shooting solely in black and white. Manchester is a city full of colour, full of Victorian red brick buildings but when you strip that back you’ll find that the city’s soul still stands out.

Anyway, in this series, I let the pictures do the talking and so hopefully you’ll enjoy these as much as I do. For those who are interested in finding out exactly how to shoot images like this straight from your camera, check out my post on the Fujifilm Acros film simulation here.
