Some of you may know that our little boy was born at the end of this summer. Unfortunately he spent the first week of his life in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at The Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital.
I’m happy to say that he is now happy, healthy and thriving, keeping his mum and I truly on our toes – something we wouldn’t change for the world.
We are so grateful for everything the incredible NICU staff did for him and us during that worrying time. They are true heroes doing a difficult job that is so incredibly important.
From now until Tuesday evening I am selling a selection of professional prints of the images below with 75% of the prices going to the N&NUH NIC Unit. Raising enough to buy a big box of chocolates for the team there would be brilliant but it would be nice if I ended up giving a little more!
If you have seen an image on my www.buckphoto.co.uk site that doesn’t feature here but you are interested in acquiring please get in touch and I may be able to help.

1. Art: Paper size = 20×16″ with image area approx. 15″ on the longest side printed on premium art giclee media (think smooth watercolour paper), signed – £65.00

1. ‘The Big Oak’ – A famous solitary oak on a hill just outside Buonconvento, Tuscany. The views from here are spectacular with the landmark linked to tales of romance and love.
2. Podere Belvedere, San Quirico, Tuscany – Famous throughout the world and recognisable as Maximus’ home in the film ‘Gladiator’. It took three 4:30am starts to get this shot – not bad by landscape photography terms…
3. ‘Sentinel’, Pienza road, Tuscany – Lone oaks litter the Tuscan countryside, a remnant of historical farming methods dating back to neolithic times. The landscape is truly magical and sense of history is thick in the atmosphere.
4. ‘Bowerman’s Nose’, Dartmoor – The distinctive natural monument at sunset.
5. The most popular image from my ‘Storm’ series last year (only available as a standard 15×10″ print) – more images and the story featured here
6. Koi Abstract 1 – I wanted to create a sense of synergy between these striking yet graceful fish with their watery environment. A long exposure and several attempts resulted in these two complimentary studies.
7. Koi Abstract 2 – see above description..
8. ‘The Boss’ – The title says it all – a portrait of one of the animal kingdom’s most recognisable faces.
9. ‘North Shore Rite’, Oahu – A heavy wave of consequence thunders through on the ‘Seven Mile Wonder’. The little dot on the shoulder of the wave on the lhs of the frame is a solitary surfer. It gives a sense of scale and what these waves are all about. Both a right and a rite.
10. ‘Rockpiles – Unknown’ , Oahu – I was lucky enough to witness this wave breaking to it’s full potential due to the unusual angle of the swell that day, a rare occasion so I’m lead to believe. There were several well known faces out in the line-up that day, Mick Fanning, Keith Malloy, Tom Carroll to name a few but I never found out who this guy was.
11. ‘Waimea Canopy’, Oahu – Looking up through the trees around Waimea Bay.
12. ‘Picos Sunrise’, Asturias, N. Spain – It’s always worth getting up early – you’ll be surprised how often you catch the worm. And with a view like this, why wouldn’t you? Looking out across the Picos mountain range in northern Spain you get a real sense of this beautiful but foreboding landscape. It’s a relatively untouched paradise for hikers and climbers and absolutely worth a look.
