About Me

Based in Morton-on-Swale in North Yorkshire. For many years I’ve had a passion for photography, I am inspired by the landscape, colours and shapes that surround us in the world in which we live.

When I view other peoples photos I could be forgiven for feeling increasingly inadequate. I am one of those photographers who will never achieve the standards the many excellent photographers out there do. If I dedicated myself to the pursuit of perfection – trekking for hours to distant lochs or mountains, or foreign or unexploited locations, then hoping for the right light and weather, then coming home and mastering the technicalities of Lightroom and Photoshop, then I might create a masterpiece or two – at least in my opinion. Even then my opinion is subjective, as I have seen since I had some of my images judged at the local camera club! Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Please have a look!

On this site you’ll find some of my favourite images, created with my mid-range Canon 6D DSLR and more recently my Canon EOS R mirrorless camera and lenses. They’ll always be ‘journeyman’ images with a little bit of artistic licence thrown in occasionally. All images are available to buy as *Giclée prints in various sizes (see below) and mounted on Premium Ivory or Ice White mount board with bevelled edge aperture.

All images are available to buy as Giclée* prints in various sizes and are mounted on Premium Ivory or Ice White mount board with bevelled edge aperture. Please visit the Shop Link above to order cards and prints. If you see an image on this site that you like and it not available in the Shop then please use the Contact Link to request a price for a printed copy. Images can be supplied in all the formats above.

Alternatively if you’d like a framed print or perhaps a canvas wrap, or a digital download of many of my images they can be viewed and bought through my ‘Additional Products’ store.

* Giclée prints are produced on the following basis:

  • That the printer should use Pigment based ink (as opposed to dye-based), mine is a Canon Pixma Pro 10S
  • The printer should use 8 inks or more, the above printer uses a 10 ink system
  • Fine Art paper should be used and be of archival quality and all are acid free (I use paper with a life of 80 – 100 years )

RPS and Nature First

Royal Photographic Society
Based in Bristol, UK the Royal Photographic Society is a charity that exists to increase the knowledge and understanding of photography, to promote the highest standards of achievement in photography, and to encourage the public appreciation of photography.

Membership is open to all, irrespective of knowledge or experience. All that matters is a passion to learn and share with others. The RPS has over 11,000 members in the UK and around the world, many of whom enjoy unparalleled opportunities to share knowledge, meet and learn from one another through over 600 events every year. Many members join to further their photography and to embrace the challenge of working towards our internationally-recognized qualifications.

Nature First
Nature First is built on seven core principles that help communicate how each of us can enjoy nature photography responsibly. The Seven Principles of Nature First Photography were developed to help educate and guide both professional and recreational photographers in sustainable, minimal impact practices that will help preserve nature’s beautiful locations.

THE NATURE FIRST PRINCIPLES

  1. Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography.
  2. Educate yourself about the places you photograph.
  3. Reflect on the possible impact of your actions.
  4. Use discretion if sharing locations.
  5. Know and follow rules and regulations.
  6. Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them.
  7. Actively promote and educate others about these principles.
