Photography for me started in 2010, my step father handed me down his old Canon which immediately sparked my love for landscape, It opened my eyes to the surroundings, it made me stop and look. I started noticing things I'd never really noticed before, cloud formations, colours, shapes of rocks, and light.
Photography drives me, motivates me to go exploring. Even on those cold and wet days, there's always a photograph to be taken and being based in Devon and Cornwall, there's no shortage of places to go.
As time goes by I've become more and more critical of my work, I'm inspired by others to produce something special to share.
Since upgrading my camera equipment and investing in a small campervan, I'm now travelling further afield, always planning road trips, driving through the night to arrive at a destination to capture the sunrise. I've been running successful workshops for the last few years visiting locations such as North Devon, Cornwall, Snowdonia, The Brecon Beacons, The Lake District and Scotland.
I'm an Official UK Kase Filters Partner and Distributor.
Also recently proud to become a Vanguard Tripods and Bags Ambassador.
I keep my editing to a minimum and prefer to capture and share something real, those real life moments that can never be repeated but also invoke a sense of the "now".
