I am a freelance photographer based in Hoylake, the main inspiration for my work being the landscape, and in particular those areas where land meets the sea. Having spent most of my life living a stone’s throw from the sea, I am drawn to the shifting sands, dune systems and ever-changing skies that I encounter on daily walks close to my home and during frequent visits to the Western Isles of Scotland.
Whatever the location, I am fascinated by the changing relationships between light, shape and colour. I love the breathing space and sense of calm that being out in the landscape gives me and hope to evoke some of these emotions through my work.
I exhibit regularly, most recently in a solo exhibition at The Artists Club, Liverpool, and my work is currently represented by galleries in the North West of England and one on the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis. Limited and open edition prints are available for purchase via my website which also lists forthcoming art fairs and exhibitions.
I have images in private collections in the UK, Europe, North America and Australia and also undertake commissions producing artwork for commercial clients. In 2012 I received the Photographer of the Year award from Practical Photographer magazine.
As a self-taught photographer, I enjoy helping others to master new techniques and run practical photography and image processing workshops for anyone interested in learning more about creative photography.
