“You don’t take a photograph, you make it”

Ansel Adams

[H]i, there! well, this is me and my little world, when I am not doing what I love for a living, which is taking pictures.

And here is the thing, as it is clear to me that in actual fact I am never without a camera, it’s how I see the world. Making memories, and capturing them – the fact I always have a camera with me tells you just how much capturing memories means to me, whether mine or yours!

I live in rural Dorset with my wife Ruth, and our amazing little munchkin Milly. Watching this little monkey grow is just the most amazing thing, and now my favourite thing too. 

I’ve been fortunate to have taken a variety of fascinating career paths in the past, with some amazing experiences, I’ve taught people to climb mountains and learn more about themselves at the same time, rescued and helped people in times of need, but the one defining constant which I could never be without has always been photography. I feel lucky to know my true calling. 

A few more interesting things………

I love immersing myself in landscape photography – kind of like a busman’s holiday I suppose, but it makes me happy! I live and breathe the outdoors, and it is where I am happiest. 

I love cooking, and once made it to the QF of BBC Masterchef. Since then though, no-one has been brave enough to invite me round for dinner, though I wish they would!

I like to grow veg, catch my own dinner, and breed Herdy sheep – much cheaper than a lawnmower! I recently discovered the joys of making Pizza in a real wood-fired clay Pizza oven too, though always one for a challenge, I made the oven by hand! 

When not taking pictures (or in reality just not physically able to hold a camera), I can be found out cycling up ridiculously steep hills, kitesurfing, escaping in the camper, and chasing our Labrador Floss and Spaniel Perdy round the fields….. 

Great things start with a good story, that’s mine, and I’d love to hear yours!

That's my story, I'd love to hear yours!
