Born and bred in Cheshire I am now resident in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex .
It took me some years to realise that I had an eye for a good picture. This fact is more important than the camera, to be able to see an opportunity and then create a memorable image. I hope that my work will in some way evoke a reaction and stimulate an appreciation of landscape photography as a form of art.
As well as my core love of the landscape I use my knowledge and skills in other types of photography particularly for commercial clients. Examples of this work can be viewed on this site.
In November 2011 I was awarded the Licentiateship Distinction by The Royal Photographic Society. My stock and news imagery are represented by Alamy and my images have been selected for inclusion in The National Trust Image Library.
