Sorry I am no longer uploading to EPZ. I would like to thank those who genuinely followed my work, but I no longer feel the enthusiasm for EPZ as I once did and therefore have taken the decision to leave the community. I am not sure whether this will be permanent, it seems that way at the moment, but I will not delete my portfolio incase you wish to contact me or to see my latest work visit my WEBSITE or FLICKR .

Many thanks,

"We're all capable of taking candid snaps of people and places to capture a moment, but what makes a photographer is the ability to compose a shot that conveys to the viewer what the photographer has seen and felt at that particular moment."

I took up the hobby in 2003, when I purchased my first digital compact camera. Not content taking random snap shots of nature/landscapes; I looked at ways to improve my approach to creating an image. With the help of my father-in-law, an experienced photographer, I saw landscape imagery from a different perspective and soon developed my own style of story telling. Eventually I got my first DSLR in 2008, since then I have built up my knowledge, everything self taught and what i produce now is a result of this.

What does I look for in an image?

I try to capture images with structure, colour and movement as I feel an image should draw you in and make you feel a part of the story; this helps the viewer connect with what I witnessed. My images rarely ever happen at the first attempt, they are the culmination of researching a location and sheer perseverance to get to that eureka moment when all the elements of a composition come together. My images remain faithful to the scene that was witnessed and I like to get everything correct in the camera so he spends very little time working on a PC and more time behind his camera.

Now living in Great Ayton, I have immediate access to some of the most beautiful locations most particularly the North Yorkshire Moors. The majority of my work is done around dawn & dusk; it is at these times when the light can be at its most spectacular creating mood and breathing life into a landscape.

During 2012 I participated in some joint exhibitions and in April/May 2013 I finally got my first solo exhibition which was successful and I hope to do more in the future.
