Thank you for taking the time to visit my site and spending time having a look round. Much appreciated!
I grew up in the Lake District and whilst being aware of living in a stunning part of the UK, I admit that I took it for granted. It was whilst studying in Manchester that I began to appreciate the beauty of this beautiful place. Whilst travelling back and forth on the train I would watch the urban landscapes of Manchester and Preston return to rolling hills as the Lakeland fells signalled that I was home.
After completing my courses and moving back to the Lakes, I bought a bridge camera and began my journey capturing the stunning scenery that was all around me. Something ‘clicked’ literally and so I decided to pursue photography further, investing more time and better equipment accordingly.
I was delighted when my work gained recognition from my peers and it was especially gratifying when I began to sell prints. Whilst they can be purchased here in my online shop, I can be found regularly at the 'Grange Prom Art’ that is held in the stunning setting of the victorian prom in Grange over Sands…….please click the link for dates
Some years back, I met official Fujifilm X photographer Mark Gilligan FBIPP. He liked my photographs and whilst I felt I was no where near as competent as I would have liked to have been, he was generous enough to take me under his wing and mentor me. I now work as Marks assistant on his bespoke 1-1 photography workshops as well as the official FUJIFILM workshops.
In order to allow photographers who are often berated by their friends and family for holding them up on walks, we also enjoy delivering PHOTOWALKS in ’the Lakes’ and Snowdonia.
Photography has provided me with a way of developing myself as a person and just as importantly capturing memories. I hope you enjoy looking at my work and my site. I will be delighted to answer any questions you may have and look forward to hearing from you !
