I owe my love of photography to my father Max. He was a keen photographer as a young boy back in the late 1930’s/early 1940’s, and encouraged my interest in my childhood years, helping me with both colour transparency and black & white darkroom work.

Now days I work almost exclusively in the digital medium, but my grounding in the unforgiving colour transparencies has taught me to take care to get thinks right “in camera” rather than relying on post processing.

For more than 40 years I have particularly enjoyed capturing what nature has to offer, responding to the way light falls on landscapes, and seeking to portray this in beautiful images. I love seeing my images printed, framed and hung as wall art.

I have recently expanded my landscape work into a couple of new areas – infrared and aerial, and I’ve added two new collections to reflect this.

All my images are protected internationally by copyright law, and images may not be copied or reproduced in any fashion without my written permission.

My photographic motto is: It’s not just about the subject, it’s about the light falling on the subject !
