I was born and grew up in the North East of England. My father was a wedding and portrait photographer and he gave me my first camera at the age of six. By the age of 10 I was assisting him on various jobs. Later I studied photography at Blackpool College of Art and moved to the Manchester area where I have worked ever since.

Over the last 30 years I have worked at several large photographic studios in North West England as well as producing work for myself. I currently work at Blink Photo Ltd in Chorley, Lancashire.

In a commercial environment I specialise in the production of moving images, particularly photo animations. You can see examples of these throughout the site or you can visit my other website dedicated specifically to this type of work www.photo-motion.co.uk. Recently I have started to work more with video particularly since the technical advances with DSLR video cameras.

My personal passion has always been Landscape photography, and again you can see examples from many European countries throughout the site.

If you are interested in licensing any of the images on this site for commercial use please contact me. Everything on this site is copyright whether its my images or links to other sites so if you want to link to anything please just send me an email to ask first. Any reasonable request wont be refused.

Over the years I have been a member of several photographic organisations, some of which were good, others not so. However currently I am only a member of one - the Pro-Imaging group which I believe is one of the best.

As previously mentioned my Dad was a photographer and although my brother Marc decided to pursue a career in computing he is still a keen amateur and produces some great images.
