Why do i love photography?
"I started my photography journey when I was really young. My father was a merchant seaman and travelled all over the world and we of course in those days could not share in what he did and experienced. That is until he came home then he would develop his many roles of film organise a big family gathering and have a rather long and very detailed slide show. At the time I’m pretty sure I didn’t appreciate his labour of love nor understand it but now i do.
I love to travel. That is to say, I like to get out and about and visit places I don’t see every day and record what I see. Sadly I have only been able to do this to any decent standard since my dads passing. To this end, I think I see and appreciate more of this incredible planet now. I love to be outdoors and to try and capture some of its majesties whether that be a rutting stag on Exmoor or a surfer trying to ride an impossible wave in Cornwall.
I am however still l learning, I learn from people, conditions, places and light and the odd youtube video. Recently I have sold a few pieces and this has given me so much pleasure to know that people appreciate my subjects as much as I do. Last year I was lucky enough to take a trip around the world. This has inspired me and really challenged me but it was very difficult to fail to capture some of the different light, colours and diversity of many wonderful countries across this earth. Have kit bag will travel to wherever the light takes me".
