I'm a landscape, nature and travel photographer (who also dabbles in a few other genres from time to time), originally from England but now based in Germany.

Like many outdoor photographers, I came to photography through hiking – I wanted to capture the amazing scenery, changing weather conditions and “it’s good to be alive” moments that I go out into the hills for. Over the course of time I have naturally also found many other suitable motifs and my hobby has become a passion.

I aim to capture the essence of a scene as well as a "sense of place" and use largely digital equipment to do so. Digital technology has changed photography in a fundamental way, but I believe that computer processing should only be used to help communicate this essence. While my images have been edited to a certain extent, all types of alienation have been avoided.

Cheryl - I did warn you that you wouldn't find many animals/birds in my portfolio! Happily the polariser seems to have survived its flight though! Wink

Alan - thanks for your comments!

Cathy, you've turned your interest in hiking and the outdoors into a photographic one, just like me. From you I've learned that it is important to follow what you like, as it can lead in interesting new directions. And you've shown us some great scenery along the way.
