About

I have always been interested in photography and have some early vague memories of mixing chemicals and working in a friends darkroom in my early years. I was a member of camera/photographic club in Essex in the 80's and produced my own prints for a while.

After a break from it all while I worked in corporate la-la-land for a number of years, I ended up sailing a yacht in the Caribbean (its a tough job, but someone has to do it). While I was there I needed to generate some half-decent marketing images of the boat and the area, so I bought my first digital SLR, a Nikon D50 with a couple of kit lenses. This re-ignited my interest in photography.

After a few years of sailing around the world, capturing many thousands of images, I returned to the UK, ending up in Dorset. One of the most beautiful areas of the UK, with the Jurassic Coast running for 92 miles along the South Coast, I decided it was time to become semi-professional to capture the magical landscapes and seascapes that surrounded me.

After a few years in Dorset I have now returned to my love of water, sailing yachts and turquoise waters and am spending the next few months in Bequia, part of St Vincent & the Grenadines, in the Southern Caribbean.

I have now upgraded most of my equipment from those early days and now shoot with a Nikon D7000, a selection of Nikon and Sigma lenses, Lee filters and my sturdy Manfrotto tripod. All this goes with me wherever I go.

I regularly have my images in the local and National press and various glossy magazines and recently received a 'Commended' for one of my images in the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition, with the image being in the yearbook, Collection 5.

I have published a number of different calendars and greetings cards and have had my food photography published in the Hive Beach Café cookbook, and there are many more projects in the pipeline.
