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 Prodigar and my images have been selected for inclusion in The National Trust Image Library. One of my images - Winter - was the Judges Choice in the 2014 Landscape Photographer of the Year Competition.
My pictures have appeared in The Times, The Independent, Sunday Times, Daily Mail, Suffolk Magazine, Outdoor Photography, National Trust publications, 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 as well as Spitalfields Arts Market in London where I had a presence from 2013 until 2015.
Havens of Westcliff and The Tourist Office in Macclesfield both sell my work. Gallery has included representation Sea Pictures Gallery in Clare, Suffolk, Firstsite in Colchester and Suite 307 formerly of Leigh-on-Sea. These days I tend to represent myself.
Thank you for visiting my site and I hope you enjoy what you see.
