I am fortunate, and indebted, that many (although not all) of the photographs of my layout Fisherton Sarum that I am able to use here on this blog were taken by my friend, fine modeller and expert photographer Chris Nevard.
The results of his skills in my case were first seen in Hornby Magazine and these days his work graces the pages of Model Rail magazine.
I am sure that being such an expert modeller himself having built and exhibited inspirational layouts such as Cement Quay, Catcott Burtle, Combwich and more recently Brewhouse Quay is what gives Chris such a good eye for a camera angle.
Chris also has his own blog which I can whole heartedly recommend and this can be found here, however what promoted me to put fingers to keyboard this morning was his informative blog post yesterday about model photography which is well worth a read, and helps clarify some of what is seen by some as a black art.

You big softie! 🙂
Well praise where praise is due!
Thanks for this blog Graham, I shall give Chris’s site a read as I find taking photos of my models to be a bit of a pain with inconsistent results, I’m obviously doing something wrong.
Thanks for the comment, Chris’s blog is always a good read and seems to get better and better.
