I’m a self-taught amateur photographer with a strong desire to turn professional before too long. Originally from East Anglia, I’ve come to Lincolnshire via London and Tokyo and don’t want to leave again anytime soon.

My main influences come from the kind of dilapidated places I had free reign to explore as a child of the 70’s in rural Essex, the surreal architectural images that regularly punctuate my dreams, and a love of graphic lighting and strong scenic composition in films.

I’m conscious of wanting to represent subjects in a way they’re not usually seen. Often I find myself in the kind of places few people even know exist, or closing in on an object to the point where it is no longer an identifiable ‘thing’ but an abstract pattern instead.

My current works are based around the actual / photographic exploration of how light and shadows define the often derelict spaces they occupy… creating unique, often momentary, ambience which can either reveal or indeed reinterpret the nature of a place. Maybe through photography I can create my own ‘Imaginary Cinematic Landscape’…

I hope you will like my work and get in touch, or find a place in your home for one of my images…

So, I thought I’d see how this iPod/iPhone case malarky flies… A lot of my photographs are quite graphic & isolated anyway, and they look pretty good on the iDoodah sample images. / I’ve also launched a few of my original graphics from experiments I’ve done in Photoshop creating faux book covers. / Quite what else I shall come up with remains to be seen, but I hope to …

Thank you..!

…to whoever bought one of my ‘In Ruins…’ calendars yesterday – you made my Christmas. / I explore forgotten places & take photographs for my own inner curiosity & happiness – and would continue to do so even if noone was watching, but the idea of someone believing in my images enough to actively want them on full display for a year is not lost on meR…
