As a child of the late seventies, I grew up in the era of film cameras where photography was a far less accessible and affordable pastime. After being presented with my first camera at the age of 12, a Kodak Disc camera, and promptly firing off the two enclosed 15 shot films in a blur of headless, poorly focused excitement, the camera and photography were just as promptly consigned to the cupboard for eternity.

It wasn’t until 2009 and honeymooning in Japan with a shiny new toy, a Panasonic Lumix compact, that my love for both photography and travel developed – the two fitting seamlessly. As a relative late comer, my fascination with landscape photography started in 2012 after purchasing my first DSLR, a trusty Nikon D3100. Since then, I have been fortunate to live within touching distance of the stunning Yorkshire Dales and its many waterfalls and am now back living on the beautifully rugged coastline of Dorset, places oozing photographic inspiration.

Home was always where the coast was, my real passion being waterscapes, specifically seascapes, with the majority of my shots having been taken knee deep in the waters of the stunning Dorset Coastline. However, during the past two years, my love for seascapes has been surpassed by the quiet calling of Dorset’s hidden woodlands. Wild mornings dodging raging seas now have to compete with the lure of a polar opposite – leisurely ambles through mist shrouded woods, dodging nothing but brambles and the occasional startled deer.

My goal is to convey the magical atmosphere that sunrise and sunset can deliver and hope that in viewing my work, you are able to feel even a small amount of the enjoyment I experience in taking these images.

I hope you enjoy browsing this site and return to view new artwork in the future.
