About

I have always had an interest in photography, but this really started to become more serious in my early teens when I purchased my first SLR back in the early 80's, an Olympus OM10 which stood me in good stead for many years until I moved on to Canon and Sony digital equipment. Initially I took photographs of almost everything, but my primary interests were in natural history, architecture and the landscape. More recently I have focused almost exclusively on landscape photography because of an inherent interest in the British landscape and its history so eloquently described by authors such as W.G. Hoskins - The Making of the English Landscape, Oliver Rackham - A History of the British Countryside and more recently Robert Macfarlane - The Old Ways. Alongside these authors are artists who's work I find particularly inspiring; Eric Ravilious, John Piper, Mark Rothko, Paul Nash and Jean Baptiste Camille Corot.

My photographs tend to have a bias toward landscape details; the obscure, the abstract, patterns, hues, tones and shapes. I am particularly interested in images are not immediately obvious and require the viewer to spend perhaps a little longer than usual reflecting on.
