sitting on the rocks watching the tide slowly coming back in, finishing off a perfect day on the Il d’Oleron – next stop New York…….a mere 4800km!

Il d’Oleron the largest of the Islands off Mainland France (south west) accessed by Europe’s longest bridge a wonderful island to explore and escape to!

We live in the West of France in the Poitou Charentes region, I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us.

I have not had any formal training and just feel comfortable behind the lens, enjoying the feeling of liberty and fun that is to be had with a camera.

I also have a FaceBook Page
