Photos of the businesses in Lower Parkstone…

I am undertaking a photographic project that will document the various businesses of Lower Parkstone and Ashley Cross over a couple of years. See which businesses have already taken part in the photo project by clicking here.

If you have a business in Lower Parkstone that has a ‘public face’ (in other words, I can’t include people who work in a home office somewhere in Lower Parkstone) and you want to be included please contact me.

Here’s the deal:-

  • It costs nothing to take part, apart from your time and goodwill to talk to me and pose for  a few photographs
  • You receive one digital complimentary 7.5″ x 5″ print (or thereabouts) of your business for you to keep
  • A selection of the best photographs of your business will be posted on this website in a special ‘Lower Parkstone’ section, and a short history of you/your business is included on your own page
  • You will be part of Lower Parkstone’s photographic history
  • FREE publicity for your business!

At the end of the Project, hopefully in 2021 or 2022, I will be putting on a photographic exhibition – hopefully somewhere in Lower Parkstone. This will include the best photos from my Lower Parkstone Photo Project.

Dorset’s Wild Orchids 2022

We are lucky in Dorset because we have what is possibly the best site for early spider-orchids in the UK. Ophrys sphegodes is also the first orchid to flower each year, heralding the start of the ‘orchid season.’ This year, I also found a woodcock orchid x Fly orchid hybrid, growing on a steep, Dorset hillside.
