About Me

Photography has been a source of expression for me since I was given a camera on my sixteenth birthday. As an important tool in the recovery from a recent long illness my style has developed into capturing natural subjects close-up. I use a Nikon DSLR with a single lens, that’s all, my little revolt against an over-complicated modern photography world. 

A small proportion of my images have been manipulated only as traditional film photographs would be developed, either to convert to black and white or by altering contrast. My aim is to capture beautiful subjects in the purest way possible in conditions that are momentary and unique.

With my experience as a tutor behind me, I am keen to communicate my style of photography to others by developing a series of tutoring sessions, 1:1 and group style across the East Midlands and South Yorskhire.

I live in rural Nottinghamshire developing my photography business alongside my role as a mountain leader, conservation consultant and the best Dad I can be.
