I live close to the Staffordshire, Derbyshire border and have over 35 years experience behind the Lens.
My passion for Landscape Photography comes from my love of the great outdoors. I often rise before the sun and will travel miles to capture the sheer beauty of the British Landscape.
I am also a competent user of Photoshop in which I have run workshops for budding photographers. More recently though, I have been in demand for my Landscape Slideshows & Talk entitled 'Another Time - Another Place' to Photographic Clubs and interested groups around the UK
I considers it really important to get it right at the picture-taking stage, and not to rely on digital editing too heavily. I enjoy working on a PC using Photoshop, but this comes second to just being out there in some remote location, camera and tripod hoping to recreate that feeling you get when you capture something special.
I have been fortunate to have many images published, as well as written articles for some of the UK's top photographic magazines including: DIGITAL SLR USER, PHOTOGRAPHY MONTHLY, PRACTICAL PHOTOGRAPHY, DIGITAL PHOTO, AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER, WHAT DIGITAL CAMERA, PHOTO PLUS, F.P.M.E (Freelance Photography Made Easy), DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY TECHNIQUES, COUNTRY LIFE, DERBYSHIRE LIFE, STAFFORDSHIRE LIFE & THE DERBYSHIRE MAGAZINE.
Also my work has appeared in highly regarded books, such as - DEVELOPING VISION & STYLE - (A Landscape Photographers Masterclass).
And at the end of 2010 I was delightedto be commended in the LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR awards. My image: 'Dawn over Hadrians Wall' appeared in the Book of the same name, as well as being shown at the NATIONAL GALLERY in London.
Further work also has been published in Calendars, i-phone, i-pad & android apps, Newspapers, Catalogues, Brochures and Leaflets & Cards
