Artist Profile

“A photograph is usually looked at – seldom looked into.” – Ansel Adams.
I am a self-taught photographer born and bred in South Yorkshire with a passion for most genres of photography.

My photographic journey began in the 1970s using a Russian Zenit E camera, then progressing to an Olympus OM10 (with Data back) in the late 1980s. With the introduction of digital SLR cameras my interest in photography was re-kindled and has grown considerably over the last 20 years to become my true passion.

In March 2020 I dipped my toe into the world of mirrorless full-frame cameras.

A selection of my work is also available through the Alamy Stock Photography Website:
