“Light is Everything”


Belgian pictorialist Leonard Misonne said "Light glorifies everything. It transforms and ennobles the most commonplace and ordinary subjects. The object is nothing; light is everything." For me it is the quality of the light that elicits an emotional response making a good picture.

It is as though photography is hard wired into my psyche. I do it because I have to; it has been so for most of my life. I have choice in what I photograph but not otherwise. I got my first camera aged about eight and have worked my way through a range of film and digital cameras ever since.

At first I took photos just for me; after a few years I joined a club to improve, winning many competitions along the way including The Leica Society Impact Trophy and Oscar Barnack Award. I have been commended in the Landscape Photographer of the Year on several occasions and have had numerous acceptances in International Salons. About 20 years ago I started to sell pictures through exhibitions, my website and to licence images directly and through stock libraries. 

My personal passion is photographing the British landscape which is so varied and beautiful, this I couple with travel and architectural images. It is these images that often appear in calendars, magazines and elsewhere.

I have been married for over 40 years, have two grown up daughters and a rescue greyhound - and you think you've got problems!
