The majority of my work is created in and around where I live, which is a fen in north Cambridgeshire. The fens and its skies are a landscape that I love and hold very close to my heart. I do manage to escape the fen from time to time to the coast, city and hills and then sometimes foreign lands.
My learning curve with photography is now over 50 years old, if you count the first time I entered a Blue Peter kids TV competition to 'take a picture on your street'. I took a picture of a forlorn looking stray mutt of a dog I found on a street corner with a box brownie I discovered in my Aunty Dots cupboard - how I wish I had that awful photo today; but it marked the start of that curve that I'm still no way near reaching the end of.
I like to play with and attempt to develop several styles within my photography. I like to think I'm always searching.
Photography should look for the soul, the atmosphere, the feeling etc, it should look to capture a unique moment in time - it should provoke us, move us - make us think, in my opinion it should aim to be poetic.

I do run occasional workshops for begineers and intermediates at Stamford Arts Centre. I also offer the same workshops as one to ones (or small groups).
