Whitby Galleries

Alan Wastell - Four

Welcome to a fourth gallery of images belonging to Alan Wastell a close friend whose main employment is with the local harbour office. His main hobby is undoubtedly photography in particular all aspects of shipping including the local trawler fleet. Alan freelances for the Whitby Gazette and takes great pride in his abilities, he contributes to many publications and has enjoyed success in a variety of shipping and country magazines. The lack of commercial shipping and what's left of a once proud fishing fleet has driven him to change the way he approaches his hobby, yet he still maintains a serious approach which is reflected in the style and character of his work.
