Details

The majority of my work is made in and around where I live, which is the fens in north Cambridgeshire. The fens and its skies are a landscape that I love and hold very close to my heart. I do manage to escape the fen from time to time to the coast, city and hills and then sometimes foreign lands.

I like to play with and attempt to develop several styles within my photography. I like to think I'm always searching.
Photography should look for the soul, the atmosphere, the feeling etc, it should look to capture a unique moment in time - it should provoke us, move us - make us think, in my opinion it should aim to be poetic.

 

It's now well over 40 years since I picked up my first SLR camera and over 10 years since going digital.

I used to teach evening classes at Isle College Wisbech and I ran workshops for beginners and intermediates at Stamford Arts Centre. I also offer the same workshops as one to ones (or small groups).
