After doing a Diploma in Business Studies and Industrial Design in 1972 at Newcastle Polytechnic my intention at that time was to find a career in design. However, life often doesn’t go according to plan and found myself working in a corporate environment in IT.
In 2002 I decided to try my hand at being a full time Landscape Photographer. Although I had no formal training in photography I had spent a great deal of time taking pictures as an amateur. It all started when I used to take reference photographs to use whilst indulging my other passions, walking and climbing.
Over time I started to build up a depth o knowledge and techniques in order to gain more consistent results. Over the years I have developed an individual style and I like to concentrate on panoramic landscapes as I think this format is ideally suited to capturing the sense of space.
In order to retain creative control over the final product I like to do everything in-house from taking the photographs to printing and framing the finished images. All of the materials I use are of the highest quality, ensuring that the finished picture will last a lifetime without fading.
