I am a Landscape photographer currently based in Penrith, Cumbria.
My original home is North Yorkshire but I have lived in Cumbria for over ten years. After spending many of my early years visiting the Lakes I decided to move to the area.
My working background is in the catering industy but I became extremely interested in photography whilst working in Hotels etc. My spare time was taken up by practicing and honing my camera skills when I lived in Keswick for six years.
I like to use different styles and techniques with photography, sometimes utilising long exposures and multiple exposures.
My kit consists of two Nikon full frame cameras, various lenses and filters.
I have opened a few Galleries over the years, the first was a joint venture with Sharp Edge Gallery, we were based at Goosewell Farm near Castlerigg Stone Circle at Keswick.
I ran a small Gallery at 16 Middlegate in Penrith followed by a third Gallery, also in Penrith which was in the Devonshire Arcade. I do still have some retail outlets for my work but I am now concentrating on online distribution, which gives me more chance to be out in the Lake District doing what I like to do best: taking photographs of this incredible area of North West England.
