I’ve been making photographs for over 40 years and cut my teeth on film and in the darkroom. I live on the edge of the English Lake District and spend every available day somewhere among the woods and hills. Despite living and working in such a beautiful part of the world, I am also drawn whenever possible to Scotland. I’m in my element in the natural places and enjoy the extremes of weather found in this part of the world. I’m not drawn to sunsets or sunny days with blue skies.I think the natural world is immensely beautiful at any time and in any weather.
I like the high ground and the woods and to be away from the busy places. I find a meditative peace in simply being in a quiet place, if I end up with a photograph that is a bonus. After 30 years in education I now follow my interest full time and when not photographing for personal images I run 1:1 workshops in the Lakes. I am passionate about protecting our natural environment and educating others to ensure the negative impact of their time in wild places is minimised.
