World Fireworks Championships

Titanium Fireworks Display at Blackpool World Fireworks Championship 2014

Throughout September I joined the thousands of spectators who lined Blackpool promenade to enjoy four explosive displays of light and colour as Blackpool hosted the spectacular World Fireworks Championships.

The 2014 line-up featured some of the most talented and technically gifted fireworks engineers from Sweden, Austria and Canada as well as the UK’s Titanium team who entertained the crowds with an exhibition display on the final night after the announcement of the competition winner.

Each Friday night from 5th September to 26th September I headed down to the seafront near North Pier to capture the pyrotechnical prowess of each of the finalists with the intention of creating a mini series of my best photographs of the Blackpool World Fireworks Championships to share with you all.

Aerial Photographs of Blackpool

Are you looking for truly breathtaking views of Blackpool and the Fylde coastline?

Unless you want to splash the cash on a helicopter, I recommend you pay a visit to the magnificent Blackpool Tower Eye and experience it’s solid-glass SkyWalk.

Yes, you may have to overcome the dizzying 300ft drop below, but believe me it’s more than worth the entry fee.

If you can’t stand heights, but still want to see the view, let me share with you these aerial photographs of Blackpool that I took from Blackpool Tower Eye.

BLESMA Residents

BLESMA is a national charity for limbless serving and ex service men and women and their dependants and widows. I often pass-by on my way to work and I’ve always thought it’d be great to shoot a photography project there to show my support. It’s important to be reminded of these people in our society and to celebrate who they are and what they represent.

Welcome To The Golden Mile

Welcome To The Golden Mile By Yannick Dixon Photographic Works

Each month I’m offering limited edition prints of photographs recently added to my portfolio. I often receive emails from art buyers regarding print sales and I thought that a print of the month is a good way for collectors to get their hands on my work at discounted prices.

Each print measures 17” x 11” and printed by myself on Ilford Galerie Smooth Pearl paper using a Canon Pixma 9000 Mark II. There will only be 25 prints produced of each monthly photograph and it will be signed, sealed and delivered to you.

I love street photography, but what do you call photographs taken on the promenade? Promenade photography? It doesn’t quite seem to have the same ring to it does it?! Well this month’s ‘print of the month’ is an example of the kind of candid photography I love shooting.
