About Me

Recently retired and based in Morton-on-Swale, North Yorkshire, I have for many years had a passion for photography.

Primarily a landscape photographer, more often than not I take images of classic locations. I am inspired by the landscape, colours and shapes that surround us in the world in which we live, sometimes looking inwards too for a more intimate and closer view. Every single photograph is unique, even if it is of a classic landscape view. The weather changes, the sky is different, the angle of view or position of the photographer is different. That’s why, and I’m not sure who said this, but it is true, “A photograph is an opportunity to keep a moment forever”. I hope you enjoy the selection of images chosen for inclusion on my website.

Other things that keep me occupied besides photography are cycling and website design. Two recent projects have both been for artists. Ideally these are set up so they can manage the sites themselves, so I’m not responsible for the content!

Please have a look around

On this site you’ll find some of my favourite images. These are 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. Prints are mounted with a Premium quality 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 or you would like the image larger than A3, or even framed, then please use the Contact Link to request a price.

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.
