About

Living in Cumbria, I regularly explore the Lake District, Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall to photograph the diverse landscape and seascape. Further afield, I've made photographs at a number of locations in the Faroe Islands, Scotland, Northumberland, Anglesey, Oxfordshire and on the Western Front. I use both digital SLR and medium format film cameras.

My work has been published and has been exhibited in Cumbria, Berlin and Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. My photos are held in a number of private collections in the UK, USA, Australia and Cyprus.

Prints are available as archival pigment prints or platinum/palladium prints (19th century contact printing process) and can be purchased through my website or at the Crafts of the North craft fairs I attend in Keswick, Cumbria. (Please see NEWS section for dates).

In 2020 I plan to spend time at Thurso and Ullapool in order to photograph the lighthouses at Strathy Point/Noss Head/Stoer Head and the mountains Stac Pollaidh/Suilven.

Closer to home I'll be visiting the Lake District, Solway Coast and Hadrian's Wall throughout the year and will continue to photograph venues the Beatles performed in.

My work includes:

Landscape/Seascape/Night Photography - Shot with a digital SLR camera.

Platinum Palladium Prints - 19th century contact printing process.

Pinhole Film Photography.

Medium Format Film Photography.

Vest Pocket Kodak - Images from the Western Front made with vintage Vest Pocket Kodaks.
