Born and bred in Hartland, North Devon until I joined the Royal Air Force Police in 1987. After nine years, many great friends and memories, I left the Royal Air Force in 1996 and settled in Nottingham where I realised my dream and now work full time as a photographer.
 

I spent the first 18 years of my life living on one of the most amazing coastlines in the UK, taking in the smell of the salt air, the sound of crashing waves, the howling winds across the cliff tops and the complete silence of the vale at night. It’s where I developed the utmost respect for mother nature and started my love affair of landscape and seascape photography. 

So when I moved away, it came as a surprise to me that I also loved the architecture, sights, sounds and the beauty of cityscapes. Especially after dark when the streets really come alive with colour and movement. I love to travel and explore new places, always with my camera to hand, and find it easy to adjust from the tranquility of the coast to the hustle and bustle of the big city.

I am and have been inspired by such great photographers as Chris Burkard, Joshua Holko, Daniel Bergmann, Ansel Adams, Joe Cornish, Charlie Waite, Clifford Ross and especially my friend Bob Seymour who encouraged me to take up photography many years ago.
