I was born in Eye, Suffolk in 1978 and the point when I knew I wanted to be a photographer is unusual. It was in London Zoo where I spent 2 frustrating hours in the tropical house with my little camera trying to take pictures of butterflies. I failed but left determined and inspired to succeed. I had found my calling and my passion for photography grew and grew.
The images on my site are a selection of some of my favourite images I have taken over the past three years whilst wandering around both locally and on foreign shores. I’m what you might call an opportunist photographer taking inspiration from my surroundings and trying to visualise settings in a vivid & time absent way. I love the strong dream like colours that film gives me (all my landscape images are taken on film cameras) and I just love the excitement of getting film back from the lab.
I am inspired by my surroundings and other photographers. Some of my favourites are Michael Kenna, Michael levin and Nick Brandt. More recently a photographer that has become a firm fav Jan Erik Waider.

My pictures of butterflies have got much better.
