Selection from <a href="/people/papillonbleu/collections/9007-sunset-and-sunrise">Sunset and Sunrise</a> View Full Collection

Born in Essex and living most of my life not so far from the coast, moving more times than I can count on my fingers including a year in Australia when little, I suppose the travel bug was instilled in me, so in the Summer of 2004, our family took a big leap into a life unknown and uprooted our lives and work, from the UK to live in the West of France. I love where we live and take a lot of inspiration for photography from the countryside and wonderful regions around us. I love people watching, the Fête de Traditions are always fun to photograph, the landscapes we have can be endless and the summer Sunflowers are bright and beautiful! We still have much to explore of this region and I look forward to doing so over the years and then sharing!

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 enjoy trying out new things, and seeing life from behind the lens.

I use a Canon eos 500d & 600d sigma 18-200mm lens, Sigma lens 70-300mm and Canon 50mm f/1.8II lens.
