Born and bred in Cheshire but now resident in Westcliff-on-Sea, Essex my objective is to create images using the subtleties of natural light. I aim to ensure that each picture is artistically and technically excellent. Adhering to the principle that the image be created in camera, I work hard to achieve this essential objective. Ultimately I hope to draw the viewer in to an image and make them feel as if they were there at the time of capture.
One of my images was the Judges Choice in the 2014 Landscape Photographer of the Year, run by Take-a-View. The exhibition of all winning and commended images runs from 1st December until 31st January 2015 at Waterloo Station
In November 2011 I was awarded the Licentiateship Distinction by The Royal Photographic Society. My stock and news imagery are represented by Alamy and Caters News Agency and my images have been selected for inclusion in The National Trust Image Library.
My images have appeared in The Times, The Independent, Sunday Times, Daily Mail, Suffolk Magazine, Outdoor Photography, Practical Photography & Essex Life as well as in various other publications and web sites. I exhibit from time-to-time but my main outlet is from quality Art Fairs in Essex and adjoining counties as well as Spitalfields Arts Market in London where I established a presence in 2013. Havens of Westcliff and The Tourist Office in Macclesfield both sell my work.
Gallery representation has included Firstsite in Colchester, Suite 307 Leigh-on-Sea and Sea Pictures Gallery in Clare, Suffolk. I will be taking part in Totally Photographic 5 in January 2015 at the latter
