I worked as a structural engineer until 2006 when I was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease. I felt I could no longer continue working in a demanding profession and retired at 54 years old. I decided to rekindle my interest in photography, a hobby I started as a 17 year old but did not have time to dedicate to it whilst working. Over the last few years I have created hundreds of images that I hope are sufficiently different to be of interest.
Most of my photos are landscapes/seascapes/townscapes taken in northern England and Scotland. Photography has the added bonus of getting you out and about and in my case I’m still managing to walk in the hills. Modern cameras with their built in image stabilisation help tremendously to counterat my PD tremor and help produce sharp images and there’s always the tripod if required.
