A bit about me.
I am a professional landscape photographer, specialising in capturing atmospheric images of East Anglia for clients which include the National Trust.
When I'm not behind the camera, my time is spent running landscape photography workshops. I have been running my 1-2-1 and group workshops in East Anglia for over six years and I also run workshops in the area for the National Trust, Forestry Commission and Royal Photographic Society as well as leading photography tours to locations around the world for Tatra Photography.
I was very excited to have my first book, Photographing East Anglia, a guidebook to the region for photographers, published in spring 2019 by Fotovue. I also write for photography magazines, my articles having appeared in many of the photography titles and my images have been widely published, appearing everywhere from book and magazine covers to jigsaw puzzles and jam jars (you can see some examples here).
I am a member of two photography groups, Felixstowe Photographic Society and the Beyond Group, and regularly speak at camera clubs in the south-east of England.

I’m a proud member of Nature First: The Alliance for Responsible Nature Photography and I’m dedicated to following the Nature First Principles:
Prioritize the well-being of nature over photography
Educate yourself about the places you photograph
Reflect on the possible impact of your actions
Use discretion if sharing locations
Know and follow rules and regulations
Always follow Leave No Trace principles and strive to leave places better than you found them
Actively promote and educate others about these principles
For my landscapes images I have always used Canon DSLRs. I currently use the 5D mkIV body, Canon L series lenses, Lee filters and Gitzo tripods. I also use a a Fuji X-Pro1 converted for infrared for much of my black and white photography.
As well as new projects for the National Trust, I am currently working on my second book, Essex in photographs, due for publication in spring 2020 and have other book projects in the pipeline. I'm also busy planning some exciting new workshops, expanding my workshop range to locations around the UK.
