PROFILE

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME

I am a professional photographer specialising in capturing the atmosphere of the East Anglian landscape.

There’s something special about watching the first pastel colours of the day appear over the frozen stillness of a Broads landscape on a winters morning or standing on a wild and windy beach as the sun's first rays skim over the dunes. Capturing these moments is what my photography is all about and I am fortunate that others enjoy the results enough to enable me to do what I love.

My photography can be found in books, magazines and living rooms far and wide and I regularly undertake commissions for the National Trust which sees my work appearing on everything from leaflets to jigsaw puzzles.

As well as the photography itself I also run landscape workshops (kindly supported by Lee Filters), speak at photographic societies and write for photography magazines and websites.

EQUIPMENT

If you are interested in the technical side of things, for my landscapes images I use a Canon 5D mkIV, Canon L series lenses and Lee filters. I also use a a Fuji X-Pro1 converted for infrared as well as a Canon G-1X compact and Fuji X-T10 for travel.
