About me:
Hailing from a family of photographers, some of my earliest memories are of developing black & white images with my father in our darkroom. I am now a professional landscape and fine art photographer with a particular interest in the natural world. With a degree in conservation, it is often the ecological detail that intrigues and that is equally important as the stunning vistas. Whilst striving to evoke emotion and capture the mood of a location, my aim is also to portray the fragility of our planet, and the way in which all aspects of nature are connected. Having exhibited widely, I have featured in many notable publications, including the LEE Filters Xposure and OnLandscape magazines.

Over the past few years I have worked with many leading manufacturers, including Sigma UK, Phase One, Manfrotto, LEE filters and most recently I'm extremely excited to be working with Induro Tripods.  Available for commissions, I also run bespoke workshops for photographers of all levels and regularly collaborate with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, leading group workshops.

I use

My two main camera brands are Sigma and Sony

Photographers that inspire me:

It's difficult for me to pick just one, a few photographers that I admire are Joe Cornish, Michael Kenna and Bruce Percy. 

Having said that, most of my inspiration comes from the beauty of the natural world itself, with which I have always been fascinated. Additional to that, I take great inspiration from artists, such as Hokusai and Georgia O'Keefe.

My favourite photo: 

I'll have to be awkward here and say that my favourite is a tryptich, 'Forest Visions', this set of images were shortlisted for Black and White photographer of the year in 2015. It's my favourite for personal reasons, it was quite a dark time in my life and that obviously resonated with the judges. I realise of course that these images are completely different from my usual landscape work.

When I became a professional: 

I'd decided to set myself up as a 'business' in 2016, a year which greatly raised my profile. I'd been working with a lot a top manufacturers and I was lucky enough to be featured in quite a few publications, the most noteworthy being the LEE filters Xposure magazine, which features some of the world's best photographers. Being short listed for Black and White photographer of the year in 2015 was also quite a confidence boost.
