English (Leicester) living in Suzhou, China since 1998

Living and working in Asia since 1998 I have had the chance to witness so many changes. When I moved to China, it was the start of the economic boom time for China.

I took up photography as a serious hobby 3 – 4 years ago, and it has now become an all consuming passion, all the images on the site come from the last few years, but because of my travels around Asia, and more specifically China show some of the life and history of the continent.

China as a developing country still has a long way to go, the metropolis cities that inhabit the east cost region of China are a far cry from the hinterland. My images reflect both the developed and developing parts of China, and other areas of Asia (and sometimes outside Asia) that I am fortunate enough to travel to.

As Photography is not a full time occupation for me, I make use of the early mornings and evenings to indulge in my craft. Most images have a story behind them and I will endevour to impart some of that story where possible alongside the image in my portfolio and blog pages.

Just a word on Copyright, all the images on this site are my copyright, I do not mind a link being placed to a specific image but do not wish my images to be displayed on any other sites without my express permission.

I hope you enjoy the images
