My first introduction to photography was as a student at Hull University where I studied Spatial Design, and photography was part of the creative process. It was all 35mm film with manual Minolta cameras. My first camera of my own was an Olympus OM10 and OM40.

Starting a new job after University, and a family, gave little time for photography but eventually the bug took hold again. With the advent of digital it was a new world, I sold all my darkroom gear and got my first digital camera, a Canon EOS 350D. I quickly moved on to Full Frame with the Canon 5Di/ii/iii and L lenses.

In 2016 I started using Olympus again, with the m4/3 bodies it was like coming home. I now use a couple of bodies and the Pro lenses. Other than an introduction at University I am completely self taught.

My landscape images focus mainly around the stunning scenery in North of England, The Peak District, Moors and Dales of Yorkshire, Lake District and the Coast. I have a passion for the coast, I adore everything about it, the sea, the air and atmosphere, and I try in each and every image I capture to convey the beauty, and the drama of the great outdoors. I enjoy capturing images that show the beauty of our landscapes, and also it's raw dramatic power. I feel at home shooting a stunning sunset or a dark stormy day, both stir the soul.

I have been published in many photography magazines, won awards and competitions and I am a regular contributor to a number of online resources. I supply stock images which have been seen in many publications. The greatest satisfaction I get when I get home tired, and usually wet, is when I receive a thank you from someone who has one of my images on their wall.

I run Workshops over a wide range of locations and always try to inspire and encourage, successfully so I'm told. Workshops are small groups or 1 to 1 and focus on your ability with the aim to get you to the next level. I also teach Photoshop and Lightroom. Please see the Workshops page for information.

Having used a Sony A7riii for over a year I switched it out to a Nikon Z7, and I am always asked why. The simple answer is doing so many workshops I do believe I should know different system well enough to be able to guide someone. So after a year with Sony it was time to try something else. Who knows what is around the corner, maybe the Nikon will be changed for something else.
