Biography

I am a freelance photographer based on the Wirral peninsula.  Having spent most of my life living a stone’s throw from the sea, I draw inspiration from those dynamic places at the edges of our lands; the shifting sands, dunes systems, strand lines and the timelessness of the tides.

Whatever the location, I am fascinated by the changing relationships between light, shape and form.

I exhibit regularly and my work is currently represented by galleries in the North West of England and on the Outer Hebridean Isle of Lewis.  My work is held in private collections internationally and I also undertake commissions producing artwork for commercial clients. Limited and open edition prints are available for purchase through this website and I exhibit and sell regularly at art events across the North West

My images are licensed internationally via Alamy Picture Agency as well as directly to a range of commercial and public sector clients via the commercial use section of my website.

As a self taught photographer, I also enjoy helping others to master new techniques and I run regular 1:1 workshops.
