A bit about me.

DSCF7629-1.jpg
 
There’s a thrill in 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 and capturing these moments is what my photography is all about.
 
 

 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, a lot of my time is spent running landscape photography workshops. I have been running my 1-2-1 and group workshops in East Anglia for over five years and I also run workshops for the National Trust, Forestry Commission and Royal Photographic Society as well as leading photography tours to locations around the world for Tatra Photography.

My photography has been widely published, appearing everywhere from book covers to jigsaw puzzles (you can see some examples here). I also write for photography magazines and regularly speak at camera clubs and I am a member of two photography groups myself (Felixstowe Photographic Society and the Beyond Group).

Equipment

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.

What's next

I am currently busy working on 'Photographing East Anglia', a photo location guidebook for Fotovue, as well as on new commissions for the National Trust. I have already started work on my second book, Essex in photographs and I'm excited to be leading several new workshops for Tatra Photography in 2019.
